Makai Prince Dorabocchan is a cute platformer by Red Company and published by Naxat Soft. The young vampire Dorabo is on a long journey to help his master and defeat evil demons and only the almighty golden armor is powerful enough to strike down their leader. Dorabo will meet many enemies and dangers, such as zombies, mean turtles, red eyed crazy wolves and giant trees. Our friend runs, jumps and spends most of his time collecting small tomatoes. They are an important part of the gameplay and are dropped over the boss's head as a preliminary attack at the end of each stage. Another ability of Dorabo is to hide under his hat - this doesn't look like much but this technique allows him to throw deadly tomato-bombs and finish up mean enemies. Our hero starts his journey with a short range magic-staff that can be upgraded later in the game. Three sorts or colored armors are also available (blue, red and grey) and each one of them give Dorabo special abilities such as high-jumps or faster attacks. Finally, there is a bunch of other items that will help our young vampire in his quest but they only work for a limited amount of time - the blue cape, for instance, gives him the ability to double-jump, the sword powers-up his magic staff and injections freeze enemies on the spot. Another original feature of Makai Prince Dorabocchan are the blue flying bats with tiny bells around their necks. They can call weird looking Easter Island head servants who often unlock secret shortcuts and unreachable areas.
