MediEvil[1] is a series of action-adventure hack n' slash video games developed by SCE Cambridge Studio. The first game in the series was released in October 1998.

Series descriptionEdit

In the MediEvil games, players control Sir Daniel Fortesque, a skeletal knight brought back to life by the dark magic of an evil sorcerer. The game is set across a variety of levels, many of which require certain objectives to be performed in order to progress. Dan can use a variety of weapons, ranging from close range weapons such as a sword, club or hammer to long range weapons such as a crossbow or a longbow. Some weapons, such as the club, can be used to access areas that are otherwise inaccessible. When not possessing any items, Dan is able to rip his own arm off and use it for both melee and ranged attacks, although it is the weakest weapon available. Dan is also able to use shields to defend against attacks, though they can only take so much damage before breaking. Throughout the first game and its PSP reimagining, Dan can visit Gargoyles of two varieties, one of which offers Dan information and another that serves as a shop where Daniel can repair his shield or buy more ammo using treasure he finds.
