Valis: The Fantasm Soldier is an action platformer game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
One of the lesser known entries in the Valis series is the NES title, which chucks the standard platformer formula of most of the games in favor of a Metroid-like format.
However, the game is *hard*, and mainly because the game has some critical design flaws.. I swear, the single credited game tester must have been high to not complain about these things.
There is another variant of this that addresses much of said issues, called Valis++. I would only recommend this standard translation if you’re a masochist.
Version 1.1 fixes a fatal bug triggered by using the Hammer item to talk to certain statues in the Ruins area.
