I f*cking hate summer here in Japan. Today it's 36 degrees Celsius !!! But I'm cool because VALIS is back !!! In mobile phone form. Weighing in at a hefty 1.8 MEG this takes about 7 minutes to download but is worth the wait and the price is a very good 515 yen for unlimited play unlike Sega's games were you have to pay them each month to unlock the game :(
Valis on the mobile is by far the most playable Valis of all !! Graphically it's miles ahead of the last Valis game on the SFC featuring scaling, rotation, sprite distortion, transparencies and some pretty cool animation !! It even has little eye catchers between levels as it loads !! The game plays just like the early Valis 2 did. You run around the multi parallax layered scaling areas slashing your Valis sword at anything that moves. Don't forget to pick up the items though to power up !! After level one is complete you can change your costume just like the original Valis 2. There's also a shop where you can buy sexy nurse costumes. Just like any normal console game this also features cut scenes with cut anime girlies. Below are a few screen shots taken from the official site http://keitai.channel.or.jp/content/...cflg=3&sid=136 but these don't do the game justice at all. Let's just say that this is far more impressive than most of the games on the GBA and it only cost 515 yen !!
If you're in Japan and you have a modern mobile then make sure you get this !! You'll be very surprised. The game is for the Vodafone network and only compatible with Mega Appli phones.
I'll be featuring this game on Retro Core 12. It's far too good to let it go un-noticed like it probably will.
