Excerpt: Chalk art graphics. In all the games that I've reviewed over the years, I can't recall offhand if I've ever played a game featuring graphics inspired by chalk art drawings. After playing Dokuro, that seems somewhat surprising to me. The chalk art graphics give the game a unique look and an endearing kind of charm, and they are a great fit for a 2D side-scrolling puzzle game.
Conclusion: Though not a year on the market, you can easily see the game library for the PlayStation Vita is growing and growing with one solid hit after another. The wealth of content that’s packed into this digital title for only $19.99 is one heck of a steal. If you haven’t already picked up this game, you owe it to yourself to stop playing what’s considered the “status quo” and experience of the most interesting titles of 2012.
Excerpt: Exclusive Playstation Vita games are often overlooked, especially ones that don’t have a retail release. That’s a shame because Dokuro is a unique puzzler that might be one of the strongest games in the Vita’s lineup all year. Dokuro tells the tale of a captured princess and the attempts of a skeleton to save her from the Dark Lord who wants to marry her.
Excerpt: There's nothing better than Vita exclusive games for the system that seems content to rely on ports and PSP releases. The title character is underworld skeleton, who attempts to rescue the fair princess that the evil Dark Lord has kidnapped. Dokuro also has a magical potion at his disposal, which allows him to turn into a handsome prince with greater offensive capabilities. The game requires a combination of the the prince's attack and the skeleton's stealth abilities.
Conclusion: Hat Dokuro's heimliche Liebe eine Chance? Genau das versuche ich auch herauszufinden. Seit Stunden. Denn dieses Game und seine Rätsel haben es echt in sich. Wer schnell die Nerven verliert, sollte es sich ein zweites Mal überlegen, ob er dieses Spiel ausprobieren will. Aber mit ein wenig Durchhaltewillen, Spielpausen zwischendurch und kreativen Ideen Probleme aus dem Weg zu schaffen, findest auch du eine Lösung deine Prinzessin zu retten. Immer wieder aufs Neue.
Summary: Dokuro è uno dei migliori videogame disponibili su Playstation Vita. Questo puzzle-platform perlopiù monocromatico (come se fosse stato schizzato su una lavagna) si avvicina all'idea di Escape Plan, ma la supera sotto ogni punto di vista. La trama di fondo vede ancora una volta una principessa indifesa tenuta prigioniera e un demone scheletrico di lei innamorato e seriamente intenzionata a salvarla.
