Yet another SEGA port has been announced for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but this time it's not ported by SEGA nor is it a Mega Drive game! DotEmu and D4 Enterprise have partnered to release the Master System RPG Golvellius: Valley of Doom. While I haven't played Golvellius myself, it looks to be a rather kick-ass Zelda-like RPG. What makes the game unique is that it features both an overhead view as well as side-scrolling platformer segments.
TouchArcade describes the game as "an expansive title that many gamers missed due to its limited platform coverage. Unlike Zelda, Golvellius is a rather linear, structured game consisting of seven distinct areas, where one must be completed before the next is unlocked. The hero of the game is the brave Kelesis, a fearsome warrior bent on slaying the evil denizens of the game world in an effort to rescue the lovely princess Rena. Aside from dispatching the standard baddies in every area, a dungeon boss must be defeated for each before the next area is unlocked."
Expect a full Nomad Junkyard review when Golvellius: Valley of Doom is released this August.
