Dokapon Kingdom is a JRPG!
In Dokapon Kingdom, you fight monsters, level up your skills, and buy new equipment to take on boss enemies and liberate towns! You can switch between various classes such as Warrior, Mage, and Thief who all have their own special abilities in both combat and on the field.
Dokapon Kingdom is a party game!
Each turn starts by you spinning the spinner and moving the amount of tiles you get. Specific tiles can give you items or magic, while most empty tiles will result in a battle or a special event. Your goal is to have the most money and towns to win!
Dokapon Kingdom is fucking bullshit.
Dokapon Kingdom doesn’t even pretend it’s not cheating all the time. If I had the manual I’d be able to tell if it outright said it. The spinner is loaded, high level enemies can read your command inputs, Mid level AI players can rig the damn RNG in their favour, sometimes the game just hurls itself into chaos just to spite everyone. Sometimes the rich get richer, sometimes the rich get eaten, sometimes everything equalizes violently and every once in a while someone turns into a demon. It’s completely impossible to predict.
In what ended up being a somewhat poor decision, Grace and I decided to go in mostly blind. The two of us played a practice round of the first chapter, but beyond that it’s all new to us. We get to discover all of the game’s rudeness in real time, including the ever increasing suspicions of AI player cheating. We’re also playing this in person for that extra layer of “WHY WOULD YOU ATTACK ME I DON’T EVEN HAVE MONEY”
As is normal for Dan and Grace, alcohol and poor decisions will be a staple of this LP. We’re playing on a PS2 which means the graphics are not going to look as good as you remember from the more popular Wii version.
