Review: Lost Valley
Presenation ( 10 ) -- This game emulates 16-bit classics in every way, from the cinematic intro sequences to the menu system. Everything feels right, and all elements of the game tie together very well.
Gameplay ( 10 ) -- Aside from a few minor glitches when jumping near the edge of the screen, the engine is nearly perfect. The combination of Golden Axe and Zelda style gameplay makes for a varied experience that never gets stale, both types playing every bit as well as their commercial counterparts. Topping everything off is a well-developed story, and a gradually evolving difficulty level that keeps the player motivated and challenged throughout.
Graphics ( 8 ) -- The graphics rank among the best looking Klik games to date, but this can be attributed to the fact that they are ripped. However, a strong sense of composition is evident, and all of the sprites and background fit together in a common style and never feel awkward or out of place. A beautiful game on the whole, but I would feel bad giving it a 10 in this department when other Klickers spend countless hours spriting original graphics.
Sound And Music ( 7 ) -- The midis used fit the game well, and seem to be drawn from a variety of sources. Sound effects get the job done without ever getting annoying or repetitive, which is more than I can say about some Klik games. Nothing really stands out, but then again, nothing is glaringly bad either.
Lastability ( 10 ) -- This is definitly not the kind of game one beats in an afternoon. With a huge world map, and more dungions than you can shake a stick at, Lost Valley will keep you busy for a long time.
Overall ( 10 ) -- I'll probably get flamed for even suggesting this, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this game is every bit as good as Eternal Daughter. While it doesn't have the elaborate original graphics of the Klik benchmark, it is just as challenging, and offers better and more varied gameplay. Considering the small filesize, any fan of Zelda or Golden Axe would be a fool not to play this game.
