Summary: Princesses, Dark Lords, menacing castles, dashing Prince Charmings -- you've seen it all before, right? But what if I told you the dashing prince was actually a skeletal servant of the Dark Lord, who, after a moral conundrum, decided to save the princess himself, and turn into a Prince Charming in the process? Enter Dokuro -- a wholly interesting concept for the Vita with a few mechanical problems.
Excerpt: In the world of video games, princesses in need of rescue are hardly a new concept. These poor damsels in distress seem doomed to be kidnapped by every crazed maniac in the virtual world and exist merely to wait for their frequently moustached hero to come get them. Dokuro doesn’t try to deviate from this tried and true formula—it’s a simple tale of a little hero who wants nothing more than to save a princess from an evil overlord. Past that, however, things get sticky.
Summary: Dokuro is the unconventional love story between a schlubby skeleton and a beautiful princess that doesn't know he exists. But that isn't going to keep our hero from helping the troubled maiden escape the harrowing castle. With 150 challenging stages, Dokuro is an epic adventure every PS Vita owner should undertake!

Excerpt: Vita fans haven't had it easy lately. The platform is floundering a bit in sales and internet forums are awash with doom and gloom. Dokuro's hero doesn't have it much better. Being a tiny skeleton constantly pushed around and looked over while he tries to do what he can, it's actually somewhat reminiscent of the platform itself. So gather round, kids, and I'll tell you the allegorical story of Dokuro , and hopefully Vita's end can be as happy as this one.
Dokuro Review | Move Over Fortesque, There's A New Skeleton On Vita
9 December 2013
Conclusion: The Short Version: Dokuro is a satisfying and elegant puzzler that works brilliantly on the Vita, providing hours of compelling content in what can charitably be called a 'dry spell' for Sony's handheld. If you're up for a challenge, Dokuro will definitely keep you busy until the next wave of Vita titles hit UK shores, and possibly beyond.
Pros: Beautifully elegant in design: complex puzzles and simple mechanics, Eyecatching charcoal visuals, charming storyline and wry humour, 150 tough levels makes for masses of content
Cons: Touchscreen controls can occasionally annoy, Occasional difficulty spikes, Perhaps slightly derivative in parts
Summary: Souvent, les joueurs critiquent la PSVita en disant qu’elle manque de jeux. C’est un peu vrai mais en cherchant un peu on peut en trouver quelques-uns qui valent le détour et qui n’ont malheureusement pas été mis en avant. Parmi eux, il y a Dokuro, un jeu mêlant plates-formes et énigmes dans un univers fait de craie.
Pros: Un game design retors mais jamais frustrant, Une patte visuelle fort jolie, Des pouvoirs de craie très sympas..., ...pour une utilisation avec parcimonie du tactile, Des ennemis variés, Des boss bien conçus
Cons: Une musique qui énerve vite, Des sauts imprécis, Pousser des caisses, c'est un peu lourd
