Under new kings, the country was reborn and knew decades of peace and prosperity. In time, the kingdom became known as Aleid after the current ruler, the good King Aleid. The kingdom only had one problem. For water, the people had to go to the river valley. But the people of Aleid were honest and hardworking, so they didn't mind the walk. Until demons began to appear in the valley!
The tales of demons contiued to grow. And when the people who went to the valley for water failed to return, the feared name Golvellius...once used to scare bad children...was whispered from stall to stall in the marketplace. And the valley of life now became called "The Valley of Doom."
The good King Aleid was so worried that he fell sick with remorse. Only a magical, medicinal herb call Mea, found on the valley floor, could save him. So against all objections, his good and faithful daughter, the Princess Rena, journeyed to the valley to obtain the herb. The evil Golvellius has captured her! And nobody was brave enough to get her back!
Then a wandering lad with wild green hair and a taste for adventure came into the village. His name was Kelesis, which in the language of the kingdom of Aleid meant, "Bane of Demons."
Kelesis listened to the story of the missing Princess. He listened to the terrible legends of Golvellius. Then he looked at a picture of Princess Rena and fell in love.
After that, there was no stopping him. He said, "I'm going into the valley for Rena. Any who tries to stop me...shall feel the bite of my sword!"
Kelesis entered the cave leading to the Valley of Doom. And thus began his quest...
Golvellius has sent seven of his fiercest demons to stop you. Before you do battle with Golvellius, you must defeat his demons. You will find them in caves hidden throughout the valley floor. Some caves can be opened by defeating some of the wild beasts of the valley. Some will appear when certain objects are struck with your sword.
But despair not! For in some caves you will find fairies, sorceresses and wise women who will help you in many ways. If you die in the course of your quest, write down the Password that appears. By entering this Password, you will be able to begin the game from the opening of the valley (if you get that far) with all your possessions intact.
Now get in there and save the Princess! Can't you hear her calling for help?
If you have turned OFF the power and have restarted the system, choose PASSWORD CONTINUE, which lets you use your Password to continue the game you were playing before the power was turned OFF.
You receive a Password when the game you are playing is ended. The Password allows you to continue the game at a later time with all the possissions you have found and half of your gold.
Use the D-Button to select the numbers and letters. Press Button 1 to register the number or letter. When the last number or letter is entered, the game will begin at the mouth of the valley.
If you have entered an incorrect Password, the message "WRONG PASSWORD" will appear. Check your Password and enter the number again.
Each successful attack from the enemies will deplete a portion of your Life Meter. When your Life Meter has turned white and you have no more Life Potions, you expire and the game is over.
When travelling above the ground in the valley, the game play will be in the
Vertical mode. Either Button 1 or Button 2 will operate the sword.
As you get further into the game, some caves can only be opened by striking certain objects with a magical sword...if you have a special object! REMEMBER: Caves will often appear where you least expect them to be.
