Once upon a time, the Princess of a faraway land ruled in tranquility--until she was kidnapped by the scheming Dark Lord.
The Dark Lord was bent on making the unwilling Princess his bride. Locking her away in his castle, he ordered a skeleton to keep a stern watch over his prize. The docile henchmen kept to his orders... at least at first.
The weeping beauty before the skeleton conjured strange feelings. Yes, he wanted to return the Princess to her former life, away from the Dark Lord's marital machinations! And so it was the lowly skeleton betrayed his master and set the Princess free.
But can the pair make it out of the castle in one piece? Our story begins...

Ratings and Reviews
Perfect blend of action & puzzle!
The visuals I found very unique & charming. The princess you guide needs your help, but thankfully is no lemming. She runs away from monsters & doesn't walk off cliffs. I like how the stages are short, but continous. The puzzle aspect makes the game not another mindless "run to the end."
My girlfriend doesn't play videogames, but she adores Dokuro. She thanks me for it.
Awesome graphics and gameplay. A joy to play and a steal at this price. Top notch blend of a platform game with puzzle aspects
Great puzzle platformer with unique artwork
GungHo deserves a lot of credit for localizing Dokuro to the English-speaking world, as this is a challenging puzzle platformer game with unique, charming artwork that evokes shadowbox puppetry theaters, an artform that has steadily lost ground to newer forms of entertainment on the television or on the computer screen. Everyone from children to adults can find something to love in this game.
