King's Valley

Arcade 1985 Dos Dosbox Konami Platformer Single screen Hop and bop

A sweet little exploration game

King's Valley puts you in the shoes of an explorer, pitting you against the dangers of ladder escalation (!) and asking you to get your pixilated little hands on all sort of artifact, all that, while baddies want to get you, and while you always look find the easiest and fastest way between the artifacts that need collecting. Thus, the game has that arcade appeal of games from the King Kong era is never too extreme or unforgiving. Graphically, the game uses colorful title sets, but you'll never be assaulted by more than 3 or 4 colors on screen at any given times. Still, the game manages to put forth a lot of variety, given its small scope and abilities and, therefore, it keeps the entire experience small, well encapsulated and always excited to be into, for as long as it lasts. Still, don't expect extreme thrills, expect, instead, a good old fashioned a left to right, up and below kind of platformer, great nonetheless. It's the Spelunky of the mid 80s! And, to be honest, that's saying quite a lot, given how old this game is!
