While I enjoyed the older Metroid games (especially the GBA ones), I would not consider myself a devotee of the "Metroidvania" genre; Dust - An Elysian Tail was the first game I played in years.

But still I enjoy it when a game does so many things right like Valdis Story:

The melee focused combat is highly rewarding as you learn to master the "Skill Cancel" ability and start to weave in magics to your combos. The exploring in the sunken city makes you backtrack for upgrades but never feels like it forces you to do so. While it does not look as gorgeous as Dust did, it is still charming with fluid animations and diverse looking zones.

The story starts of a bit weak, but the more cities you discover and lost crewmen you find the more compelling it gets. I like that the male protagonist (you can also play a female one and unlock others) is no knight in shining armor but more of a brutal anti hero - with a warm heart for his crew.

Valdis Story ist ein gutes Spiel für zwischendurch. Die Cartoon/Anime/Wasauchimmer-Grafik wird sicherlich nicht jedem gefallen, passt aber gut zum Spiel. Die Story ist auch ganz ok, auch wenn sich bekämpfende Engel und Dämonen nichts neues sind. Die Steuerung ist manchmal etwas anstrengend und widerspenstig, vor allem bei langen Sprungpassagen, funktioniert aber in der Regel problemlos und ist schnell gelernt. Die Gegner sind hübsch designed und super... schon bei den normalen Gegnern muss man teilweise kurz nachdenken und eventuell mal blocken aber die Bosse erfordern wirklich dass man sie beobachtet um herauszufinden wie ihre Mechanik funktioniert und man sie am sinnvollsten bekämpfen kann.

One of the best game I've played in 2013, Valdis Story: Abyssal City is a Metroidvania gem that you don't want to miss. So, what's so good about it you ask?

- Challenging, old school style bosses (a lot of them), you really need to rely on your skill and pattern recognition. No QTEs here.
- Great combo based combat with multiple magic type attacks and a skill cancel/dodge system.
- Good RPG based stats, skill tree and equipment system to customize your heroes with.
- Multiple characters with really different play style, you can choose from 2 playable characters for now but the devs promised 2 more distinct playable characters in the future.

It really is the best Metroidvania type game available on Steam so far. So if you like games like Dust, Cave Story+, Guacamelee or Aquaria you should pick this up ASAP, for me it's way better than those games and takes me back to a time when all I care about gaming is the pure fun and challenging aspect of it.

I would consider this sort of like a 2D Bastion, which, for me, is high praise. It doesn't have quite the uniquely immersive experience that Bastion does, but the gameplay is a bit more varied and enjoyable. Though it's RPG-ish, it also has platforming and arcade-like combos and boss rankings. There are two playable characters, Wyatt and Reina, and I've found both to be lots of fun. Another two character will be patched in later. With the decent campaign length and many build options for each character, there seems to be a lot of replayability.

The story has a pretty broad cast of characters for what it is, though admittedly, outside of the main characters, they don't have much depth. Many of the characters are evidently named and designed by backers, which is a thing that concerns me about Kickstarter projects generally (backer perks bogging down the creative process), but it seems to "work" in this case. The main plotline is decent, and not quite as generic as you might think from the synopsis about a struggle between gods of light and dark. The way you fight both angels and demons also reminds me of Darksiders, while we're on the topic of specific game comparisons.

The music is awesome. I was actually surprised at how much of it there was and how creative and well-developed some of the melodies were. The art style is your typical cartoony indie game art. Both have a slight JRPG flair to them, which to me is a good thing, but YMMV.

The dialog could use a proofreader. That's another thing that reminds me of Darksiders, heh. It's the little things, like a comma where there should be a period, or no comma where there should be one, etc. And please, for the love of God, stop putting exclamatory dialog in all caps. It looks amateurish. Still, some of the dialog manages to be pretty clever, IMO. "You know, instead of giving you these books I could just punch you in the face." Maybe I'm easily amused.

Overall, it's quite a fun game, so anyone thinking about picking it up should think about picking it up a little harder than they did before, because I think they should pick it up too. That's how a drill works.

Well, by the first 15 minutes of the game you will remember Castlevania SOTN wich has similars comands and almost same style of battle. There is no "easy mode" that makes the game even more interesting and fun. I recomend to start at the hard mode and grow up some levels before go further in the game.
You choose where you wantt to put your points that you gain at each level up, just like Diablo. By the start you have only two characters to choose, one is normal gameplay and the other is to advanced players.

The story is a little confuse but "im ok with that"

The bosses are so anger and hard as beating Galamoth* without the right itens (hehehe)

And im playing im a low specs notebook: Intel graphics (r) 2012, 2GB ram and a Dual Core 1.1ghz (Celeron) and no lags to report

If you want a game of action with elements of RPG "THIS GAME IS FIT TO YOU"
I recomend for sure!

*From Castlevania SOTN

Bem, pelos primeiros 15 minutos de jogo você irá perceber a semelhança com Castlevania SOTN com comandos similares e quase o mesmo estilo de batalha. Não existe modo fácil, o que torna o jogo ainda mais interessante e divertido. Recomendo que jogue no Hard e upe alguns níveis para prosseguir no game. A cada level up você ganha pontos e pode escolher onde distribuí-los como no clássico Diablo. De começo só tem 2 personagens para escolher dos 4 existentes. Um para iniciantes e outra para jogadores avançados acostumados com esse tipo de controle.

A história é confusa pra k7 mas "im ok with that"

Os chefes são tão difíceis como tentar derrotar o Galamoth* sem os itens certos (hahaha)

Estou jogando num notebook bem fraco: Intel graphics (r) 2012, 2GB ram e um Dual Core 1.1ghz (Celeron) e nenhum lag a reportar.

Se você procura um jogo de ação com elementos de RPG "ESSE JOGO FOI FEITO PARA VOCÊ"
Recomendo com certeza amiguinhos! :3

*Galamoth é um chefe de Castlevania SOTN
