Excerpt: The PS Vita is home to an expansive library of niche releases such as Gravity Rush or Lumines: Electronic Symphony --however, they come at varying degrees of quality. Dokuro, the latest platformer to hit the PlayStation Network, falls at the negative end of the "fun' spectrum. While the game possesses an intriguing chalk artwork aesthetic, it's just not very entertaining.
Pros: Chalk aesthetics and pastels that pop, Precise touch controls, Dokuro's princely transformation
Cons: Frustrating puzzles, A dim-witted princess/co-op partner, Restarting levels to make progress
Conclusion: Concept: Clear a path for a princess by solving puzzles, avoiding traps, and navigating a monster-filled castle
Graphics: A storybook comes to life with the unique chalk art style
Sound: The music is only memorable through its annoyance, though the kooky tracks match the premise
Playability: Touch controls are inconsistent, and the touch-screen gimmicks are more frustrating than fun
Entertainment: The unforgiving puzzles aren’t fun to solve.
