Bao Qing Tian (包青天) also known as "Justice Pao". is a platform game developed by some ex-Sachen developers & published by Ka Sheng in 1996.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Screenshot of the game.

Despite Judge Bao is mentioned prominently throughout the game, he is, in fact, not the player character - the players themselves control one or two of Bao's servants (Gongsun Ce), depending on whether the two-player hotseat mode is selected or not. If the player pressed Select, he will summon one of Judge Bao's secretary Zhan Zhao to clear enemies on the screen.

Each world is split into three levels, two of which are mainly based around platforming while the third one is a boss stage.

Otherwise, it's functionally similar to The Dragon, right down to the mechanics.

The title screen music is a rendition of the opening theme of a television series on the same subject.
