For years, I’ve been banging on the PS2’s Dark Cloud series, and how the world would be a much better place if it were revived for the next-generation platform. While the billionaire benefactor patiently waits to hear me, Dwarrows takes the next best thing and captures the spirit of a whole new series of Dark Clouds.
If you’ve never played the Dark Cloud series, it’s a great blend of city planning and action-RPG.. You are wandering the wide world, bringing back the resources and townspeople who live in your town. A better town means better, more preparation for an adventure, and the cycle goes on. Dwarrows glues nicely to that template.
You play one of three dwarves scouting the lush forests of the Dasken Forest looking for something to bring back to town. Resources, man-made objects, people can be found in the wilderness, all of which can be installed in your own personal dwarf. From the trailer and screen, you can create your favorite city with detailed customization and places to put things.
Abandoning the dark cloud comparison, Dwarrows also has many features of its own. Especially the creatures around the forest and dungeons seem to have many fantastic characters. As you cross the trail with useful crows, whisps and other animals, you will make friends with these animals and help them move around. You can also make friends with local wood elves. The ultimate goal is to take them to your town.
There are three starting characters for playing with Dwarrows, each with its own abilities and loadouts. To collect all the different treasures and resources you can find in Dwarrows, you need to use them in different ways.
The main functions are as follows.
- Exploration: Play as three uniquely skilled characters to explore a peaceful and atmospheric world and solve puzzles.
- Collect: Supply your town with resources collected from the surrounding land, hidden treasures, and other wonders.
- Build: Discover and unlock new structures to grow and improve your town.
- Friendship: Find local wildlife friendships, enhance your town and character abilities, and invite wandering Wood Elves to join and grow in town.
