● What exactly is DOTORI?

DOTORI is a side-view 3D platformer game that provides unique gameplay experience with its toon shaded characters and charming stages. As Rico the Squirrel, player embarks on a journey to save Lottie by progressing through stages filled with creative gimmicks and obstacles.

● Into the world of mysteries

Each chapter has its own different design and gimmick based on where it takes place. Player will challenge the stages located in various regions such as the prairie, fairyland, arcane structure, trading estate, etc.

For instance, cutters and molten metal can be found in the trading estate, which can be avoided or jumped over by gimmicks such as jump buster and magic spring.

● Dynamic action with simple controls

Only three actions are needed to explore the stages in DOTORI: run, jump, and throw. Certain stages require special moves such as double/wall jump, and player may need to use unique stage gimmicks in some stages.

Actions become more colorful with magic cubes that can be found in DOTORI. Player can stop the cube in the air to use it as a foothold, or use it as a shield to block deadly lasers.

● Rico vs. gigantic bosses

To continue his journey to save Lottie, Rico must fight powerful enemies waiting for him in each region. The bosses will strike at Rico with their own special attacks.

Player must observe how the boss moves and find its weak point. But be careful: one small mistake can lead to serious damage!

● Challenge hidden stages

DOTORI has a total of 40 stages, and the hidden chapter is unlocked upon clearing the game.

Consisting of 25 stages, the hidden chapter provides a whole new gameplay experience, featuring higher difficulty and harder challenges.
