-Valley of Doom!

Rex. In the language of kings, it means tyrant. It was a title used in legend
to describe Golvellius, an evil king who had destroyed his kingdom and
disappeared a thousand years ago.

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 continued to grow. And when people who went to the valley
for water failed to return, the feared name Golvellius... once used just 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, called 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. She never returned. The
people knew what had happened. 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

-The Object of Golvellius

The evil Golvellius has kidnapped the Princess Rena. As Kelesis, you must get
her back! He has hidden her somewhere in the valley. But beware... the valley
is long and wide... and filled with surprises.

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 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?

-Playing Golvellius

You begin Golvellius with a full Life Meter and one extra Life Potion. You
will be able to purchase additional Life Potions from certain people in the
course of the game.

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.

Horizontal and Vertical Play Modes

Golvellius takes place above and below ground. The game begins in the
Horizontal mode, where you must take Kelesis through a danger filled tunnel!

When traveling above ground in the valley, the game play will be in the
Vertical mode. Either Button 1 or Button 2 will operate the sword.

Inventory Screen

When you enter the valley, pressing PAUSE will access the Inventory Screen.
This lets you keep track of how much gold you own, how much gold you can have
in you possession, how many Life Potions you own and what special items you
have acquired.


All the people and demons you will encounter in the valley live in caves
below ground. In most cases these caves are concealed and you will have to
defeat some of the enemies on screen for the entrance to be revealed.

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.
