Doko Roko Video Game

Doko Roko is One Flashy and Slash-Y Platformer

Developer Ericsmack is bringing quite the swashbuckling, Errol Flynn-esque sidescrolling experience you’ve yet to hear of. Enter Doko Roko, an atmospheric 2D action platformer that promises a ‘slashing’ good time.

The game focuses on swift, evasive, and fluid sword combat as you dodge and vault over enemies and obstacles. Slice and dice your way through a picturesque, techno-magical landscape filled with hordes of demons. Your impeccable swordplay will come into…well, play as you ascend the floors of a mysterious, ancient tower ravaged by time.

There’s a lot to unpack in terms of visuals, as you’ll be reminded of a few 90s metroidvanias–the great ones. The combat is fast-paced, with a variety of swords in your arsenal, all of which have their own situational uses. You’ll get your obligatory, yet satisfying boss battles plus a nice touch of storytelling. With music and sound by Marcus Seletsky and work on the additional visuals by Alex Sussman, it’s quite the audio-visual buffet.

All this, wrapped in very nostalgic, beautifully done pixel art. Check out the trailer.
