Compile Heart’s Holy Sorcery Story is a rogue-like dungeon crawler similar to the Shiren the Wanderer series, but in this PlayStation Vita game you explore dungeons in search of ultimate ingredients for the legendary curry.
You start out in the main menu of Dish Town, where you can visit the local curry shop, spend time in your room or take a look at the world map.
Once you pick a dungeon in the world map, the action starts right away. Keep in mind that leveling up will only help you temporarily, as Pupuru will revert back to Lv. 1 upon returning back to town. With that in mind, collecting equipment will be more important. Searching for treasure is a must, but beware of traps!
The further you explore dungeons, the stronger the monsters become. If the monsters start to get tough, you can always search for stronger weapons or gain a couple (temporary) levels.
Another way to strengthen Pupuru is by cooking curry and eating it for a buff. Pupuru carries her pot into dungeons so you can make curry at any time, as long as you have ingredients are available.
You can also enhance or fuse equipment to make more powerful gear.
Besides spastically following Pupuru while eating all the curry ingredients, Kuusii (the little guy that follows you) helps out by blasting enemies with laser beams! The Kuusii Laser and other abilities can be learned by feeding him foods to level up.
… but sometimes he will simply turn his back while poor Pupuru gets beaten to a pulp by multiple enemies.
No worries, Pupuru can handle herself with magic when things are looking bad!
When the dungeon run is over, you’ll be rated on your performance based on final stats, money, experience and more.
Holy Sorcery Story will be released on March 28th, 2013, on the PlayStation Vita.
