Dokuro tells the story of a young princess who has been kidnapped by a Dark Lord, who wants to eventually marry her. Unfortunately for the princess, she’s been locked up in his tower until their wedding day. You play as the character Dokuro, who guards the demon realm and it’s your duty to watch over the princess. But seeing the princess in this emotional and unhappy state, evokes a sadness and strange sensation within him.
Dokuro betrays the Dark Lord and takes it upon himself to free the princess from the evil clutches of him and lead her to freedom through the tower exit. As Dokuro, you must lead the princess through the tower, navigating and avoiding traps and various obstacles. Dokuro can transform from his ghoulish self into a handsome hero. Whilst Dokuro is in his ghoulish form he can double jump, allowing him to reach higher platforms and in his hero form, as Dokuro, he can carry the princess.
