General Information

Available on:PCDec 8, 2014

Developer: Game Arts

Publisher: GungHo

Genres: Puzzle, Platformer

A classical fairy-tale springs to life in this charming, chalk-art puzzle/platformer! Dokuro puts players in command of a charming little skeleton who is fed up with his master, the Dark Lord, and resolves to rescue a recently kidnapped princess. The princess is blind to the various dangers and pitfalls of the castle and will continue to move forward -- potentially to her doom-- if our hero doesn't do something! Upon coiffing down a magical blue elixir, Dokuro gains the ability to transform into a swashbuckling hero. This noble form allows him to save the day and simultaneously catch the eye of the otherwise unaware princess. Push, pull, jump and toggle to solve unique and increasingly difficult puzzles. Handle inhospitable situations with the power of the almighty chalk! Different colors of chalk allow our little bonehead to draw lines of flame, create great bodies of water, and repair broken ropes. If those challenges aren't harrowing enough, there’s also a fair amount of skillful jumping, slashing, and dodging required to get through the tough-as-nails platforming segments!

While I love this game's unusual art style and I enjoy the story premise, playing Dokuro is more frustrating than fun.

I just wish that it could have been on the definitive version of the game.

Dokuro is a wonderful puzzle game but I can only recommend you to play it on a platform that can make use of a touch screen like the PS Vita or a tablet/phone. PC is not the platform for it

Dokuro features some crafty and creative puzzle designs to stump your brain and a dark presentation that is different, making it stand out in a packed fill genre, and is a fun game to spend time with, but it might be better to play the Vita version instead of this barebones PC edition.
