  • Summary: Dokuro is a stoic, little skeleton who is a mere peon in the Dark Lords army. One fateful day he witnesses his master returning with a helplessly abducted Princess he intends to force into marriage. At once smitten by her plight, Dokuro resolves to free her from the Dark Lords treacherous, monster-infested castle. Along the way, he happens upon a mystical blue potion with the power to transform him into a dashing Hero; tragically, this is the only time the Princess can witness his noble endeavors.

    Heedless of any danger, the Princess will continue to walk forward until she encounters an obstacle she cannot overcome on her own. Dokuro must switch between his Skeleton and Hero forms to utilize his various skills and abilities. While the Skeleton form allows him to stalk about in the shadows and ensure her safe passage, the Hero form enables him to mount a gallant offensive against the armies of darkness!

    -Captivating chalk style art Immerse yourself in the gorgeous fairytale setting as you help Dokuro save the Princess from the Dark Lord.
    -Unique, intuitive controls Toggle switches, hack away at your foes, and draw your solutions in chalk to help keep the Princess safe. You will also make use of both the touch screen and the rear touch panel to switch between hero and skeleton modes.
    -Tons of engrossing content Features almost 150 platform/puzzle filled levels that will require dexterity of both body and mind as you fight through 20-30 hours of gameplay.
    -Full compliment of trophies to earn Master the Dark Lords trecherous puzzles, collect the coins in each level, and complete all challenges ahead of you to earn the coveted platinum trophy.

    I didn't believe this was on the top games for vita on ign, but after i played a couple of hours, it was awesome, and the best vita game i've played so far, it is still giving me the hardest time with one puzzle after other, but frankly, the story told by a couple of illustrations its just enough to motivate me to keep solving the next. A must have, specially for the length and price (2.99 usd) Expand

    This game basically is what the much-famed ICO would have looked and played like if it was made in 2D and adapted to a (somewhat more casual) handheld-style of play by some very creative indie devs. Brilliant retro-style puzzle plattformer with great atmosphere (art and music) and very creative puzzle design (integrating some clever touch-controls and ICOesque "pave a way for the princess" mechanics). How this game did not get way more attention and recommending reviews is absolutely beyond my understanding. Defines the meaning of STEAL at the current price tag of 2.99 Euros. Must-buy for VITA owners, imo. Expand

    A puzzle game with an interesting atmosphere, dokuro could be a game to play while you wait the subway or when you have some free time, the puzzle could take you from seconds to a couple of minutes (once you figure it out) the music is not repetitive and is kind of boring (in my opinion) every chapter include new ways to play and give you a new challenge everytime, 6 of 10 for me Expand
