After 256 years of peace in the lands of Antoria...
the ROSELIAN ARMY OF BATRATHUM has risen up once more to attempt to reclaim the land of ANTORIA that they lost in the 43rd War of Darkness. Threatening to start War of Darkness 44, KING LANCELOT BARTHOLOMEW ROSELL of the ROSELIAN EMPIRE sends his beasts through the lands, corrupting and destroying everything in their path.
Refusing to hide from the incoming threat, a young recruit at the MOTOR KNIGHT ACADEMY named JOY LANTZ leaps into action! With the power of DIVINE LIFE granted to the MOTOR KNIGHTS through their DIVINE ARMOR, and her powerful signature weapon, the hybrid motorized lance-drill BURST ARM known as the JOYLANCE, JOY refuses to let anybody stop her from saving the world-- not even the ACADEMY itself!
Allow your DIVINE ARMOR and your BURST ARM guide you to TRUE JOY!

This is an interesting retro indie game. The pixel art is nice and the presentation is stellar. It looks and sounds like a game from your youth. The combat is visceral and satisfying and the RPG elements and unlockables add quite a bit of depth to the game. Multiplayer provides a healthy amount of replayability. I'd recommend trying it.
