The Prince of the land is looking for a bride. But not just any bride. A bride who will be wearing the legendary wedding dress last seen in the deepest darkest dungeon. Clearly he's giving such a quest to find one kick-butt wife, and Umbrella is ready to leave her wicked stepmoth... er, I mean, Aunty, and prove that she is that crazy of a woman in room6's free puzzle platformer for iOS and Android, Tottoko Dungeon. The only problem is Umbrella is so gungho there isn't any stopping her! Charging forward our heroine will bounce off walls, snatch up treasures, and try to cut through any baddie that has the misfortune of standing in the way of her rampage. The problem is the dungeons are a big place and not very linear, and while Umbrella can always make it to the exit on her own, there are things she needs that are not on her path, or things she should avoid that are in her way, and that's where you come in. You are only given only two options for actions to use with Umbrella, and though you'll gain lots of abilities you'll need to decide what two will lead you to more gold and more treasure in your pockets. Collect all the treasures to unlock a hidden level, find weapons and outfits for her to use and keep her alive so she can keep going on her crazy wild adventure.
The very first level of Tottoko Dungeon has you doing nothing. While it is actual gameplay, you can only watch as if it's an extension of the cutscene. But not long after you get your first ability, you have to keep yourself glued to the screen as the pressure is on. You have to be quick with your commands as Umbrella ain't got no time for that and isn't going to slow down for anyone. You have to go into every level blind and so usually it is just a guess to which ability you should select, but after passing you can look at the level map before replaying it. And yes this game is all about the replays. While technically you should be able to collect all the chests in just two plays, you'll most likely have to give some of them a few more chances. But even as I replayed levels over and over again I never felt stuck or bored by my quest. This fast-paced game really keeps you involved even if you've done it all before. You'll need to find better weapons as you go along, but the outfits are much more important. Besides being basic armor, some of them will give you additional abilities, though the descriptions merely hint at them. So be sure to test all of them out when you get them. Besides, our firecracker of a girl would love to show off how good she looks as she traverses through the standard and then not-so-standard dungeons. This weird wild crazy adventure provides an unusual, but enjoyable gameplay and if you're looking for your new thing, well here it is.
