The hybrid board-game-meets-RPG Dokapon series has been around for a long time, but the previous games were made by Asmik Ace. Somehow Sting picked up the series with Dokapon Kingdom, a PS2 game that melds the game of life spinner with spell casting. Like Monopoly or Mario Party you guide a character across a giant game board, collect items and attack your opponents from a far with magic. Dokapon Kingdom is really meant as a multiplayer game, even the combat reflects that. When two players get ready to fight they covertly input attacks by pressing one of the four face buttons. Then through a rocks-paper-scissors system the game determines which one succeeds and how much damage is done.
