*SPOILER FREE REVIEW*
While reading this review I suggest you to hear this (and why not more) song, part of the soundtrack of Valdis Story: Abyssal City:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ziOAwqfJmU&list=PLCc8IB1G4YYplGOJkKdAbpSI0LulKn_Sb
Valdis Story: Abyssal City is a 2D Action RPG "a la" Metroidvania style with some touch here and there of Beat em' Up, the story is quite interesting from the beginning to end though it never gets to deep or complicated but is good enough to keep you entertained trough the entire journey.
The game features some simple status and equipment customization nothing to deep luckly, everything is simple to get at first read.
The best part of the game is its gameplay simple but entertaining, you have two attack buttons (Normal and strong), 3 magic spells on ground and one on air with lots of enemy to tear apart, you can also guard/parry your enemies or dodge their attacks with "skill cancels" which let you cancel your combos to keep doing more or every action you make you can also escape from enemies attacks with it, though there isn't a great variety of enemies there are enough to keep the game far from boring.
There's also a lot of obtainables very well hidden, for some you'll need certain magics so backtracking is a must if you want to get stronger or you want a 100% completition rate
Something that has to be mentioned its the dificulty level, I played on God Slayer and it was brutal, even normal enemies could beat you badly if you fight lightly with them, so if you select over veteran, beware.
My only complaint to this game is the balance of the status, Luck and Agility are way much better than magic and strengh, some magics are almost useless and the level desing though not bad it could have been much better.
Good and responsive controls
Very good music
Good boss fights
Unnecesary Magic spells
Charmeless level desing
I hope you like my simple review, if you found any grammar mistake please tell me so I can correct it and better my english
