So I'm guessing that in this game those faces were used for warping and you got some healing from wells?
Wonder what game's that snapshot taken from, looks related to Namco's arcade anthology collections again. :drohmy:


As far as I know in Legend of Valkyrie, the wells do nothing and the face plates were used for platforming during the second half of the first level:

This is Pac-Man 99, the latest in Switch Online's complementary battle royales. Themes just like Tetris's are available as DLC with pretty much all retro arcade Namco titles represented, including Valkyrie.

I assumed the well was for healing because I mistook it for the fruit spawn location (which in this theme are replaced with Valkyrie's weapons).

Hooh, then that makes sense - interesting repurposing of those elements. Pac-Man 99's unheard for me, might go check that out~ :4pacman:

If only there was a way to legally play these games over here on current platforms.
Yeah, it's still pretty scattered as far as the games go today. Switch has only a handful of Namco Arcade Classics on it's Museum-release, and NamcoT Collection seems to be mainly focusing the home port versions of these games. Valkyrie's sadly been missing from these collections since the 90s, bit of an irony considering her other quest appearances elsewhere post-millemium.

I wish I could say safely that you can go grab the original Namco Museum-titles for PSX via PS Store with 5th featuring Legend of Valkyrie - but after the store's official closure on after end of June, that's not going to age well.
