Like its console predecessor Dokapon Kingdom, Dokapon Journey is a game that combines the adventure, character development, and turn-based battles of a fantasy RPG with the head-to-head style of a competitive board game. The wealth-obsessed citizens in the Kingdom of Dokapon have lost faith in their king because ongoing monster attacks have ruined the economy. Subsequently, the King of Dokapon offers his throne and his daughter, Princess Penny, to any hero willing and able to battle the invading creatures.
Players begin by selecting a character, choosing from eight different jobs, and assigning bonus attribute points. The distance travelled on each turn is determined by spinning a The Game of Life-esque wheel, and depending on where players land, they may end up fighting, earning items, or saving a village. Up to four human or AI opponents can compete in five different game modes: "Story Mode," which is an eight-chapter adventure; "Greed Mode," in which the player with the most cash wins, "Liberation Race", where gamers compete to free the most towns, "Collect-A-Thon," where players find or steal all the orbs of a certain color, and "Death Match," a competition based on body count. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
