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

*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


Let's begin.


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.


In short:


*The good:

Decent customization

Good and responsive controls

Solid Gameplay

Very good music

Good boss fights

*The Bad:

Unbalanced status

Unnecesary Magic spells

Charmeless level desing


Score:

84/100

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

This is an amazing game! Saw it was on sale and looked intereseting enough for me to try it. Glad I did. There's only two characters to play right now but I'm still finding the story fun to play through multiple times. Grab this when you can!

an astonishing metroidvania action platformer with fantastic visuals and an amazing soundtrack, but be warned: this game is HARD. you will rage and rage and rage and then hate the game and then love it 2 seconds later.

however, after mastering this game i can easily say this is one of the most exciting and rewarding titles I have ever played. you do not want to pass this game up.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City is one of the best games i've played so far, i've been so hooked on to it that i have yet to become bored of doing the game over and over, it feels like each playthrough is a challenge and the hardest difficulty which is unlocked after your first playthrough really puts your skills to the test.

The storyline is quite a fun turn of events as neither hell or heaven is the good guy here!
You start off on a ship with your crew then some giant monster comes and crashes your ship and you all sink and end up in Abyssal City which is deep under the sea, it turns out that you have been caught up in the middle of a war between angels and demons and your only way out is to battle your way through hordes of angels and demons as you search for your missing crew!

Currently there are 2 playable characters out of 4 which will be available in an upcoming patch. The 2 currently available characters have very different playstyles, one of them is a monk which starts by using only fists while the other starts with a sword, both have their strengths and weaknesses which makes it really fun to play through the game a second time.
I started out playing the swords man in the hardest difficulty and finished the game and it was quite rewarding as i had to put some effort in to it, later i decided i was going to try out the monk and oh my did i get a surprise, it was like playing a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT GAME! i died a couple of times to bosses here and there which i had considered mastered, but because of the different playstyle and spells it really shook me up and made me have another blast through the game!

The game also features a leveling system and a talent tree system which is pretty rare for a sidescroller, it brings out allot of possibilities while leveling on what path you wish to take and what stats you require for your skill tree... Want to be a MONK MAGE?! no problem... Want to be a barehanded swordsman!? again no problem... the game is very well built to give you the different options of choosing what ever path suites you best!

The item system in the game is very pleasing, it's not to complex and not to simple, you will grind enemies along your travels and they will drop a variation of items for you, later in the game you will be able to use the items obtained to upgrade your weapons or armor as you see fit or even expand your mana or health pool.
This really brought out the good old RPG feeling in me and made me want to try to obtain all the items in the game in my first playthrough, i then realised that there are some items in the game that are only obtainable from chests and you will have to think wisely before you upgrade your weapons or armors as you may not be able to upgrade any other weapon or armor in your current playthrough!

While gliding through the game you will fight vicious bosses that will show you no mercy at all, you will struggle and enjoy the sensation of progressing them til you finally deliver the final blow! you will be required to try out various combinations of armors or spells in order to find out what the best possible way to kill the bosses are.
Every boss in the game has some sort of weakness and it's yours to figure out!

The game it self is well designed, the story is great, has beautiful graphics which are all hand drawn as well as amazing music that really puts you in the zone when fighting bosses or while you are exploring the world of Valdis Story!


Pros:

- Playable multiple times
- Very fun combat system
- Challenging boss fights
- Multiple characters to choose from
- Great leveling system with a unique leveling tree
- Difficulties made to please the average player to hardcore player
- Upgrading system

Cons:

- Map can be frustrating for beginners who have not played the game yet
- You will become hooked to the game and not want to leave your computer!


My Ratings:

Graphics: 94/100
Combat System: 91/100
Storyline: 89:100
Music: 95/100

Overall: 92/100


I highly recommend this game to everyone and if you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on twitch.tv/icyd3mon even if im not streaming, i'm usually in the chat channel!
