Away Shuffle Dungeon for Nintendo DS
In Away: Shuffle Dungeon, an unknown force has stripped Webb Village
of its residents, and now the sole hero left behind, Sword, must rescue
the stolen villagers from the ominous dungeons as he strives to expose
and defeat the mysterious thief. Sword must first collect and use
various objects including musical instruments to reveal the secret
dungeons where prisoners are being held. But successfully saving them is
another challenge altogether given a unique timed "shuffle" mechanic
that reconfigures the dungeon prisons and hurts Sword and any survivors
still caught within when the time runs out. Saved villagers will lend
assistance to Sword's quest, as will the magical 'Fupongs' and dungeon
treasure he finds that lets him shop in the village specialty stores for
armor, weapons, health, medical aid and more.
A RPG by Final Fantay father Hironobu Sakaguchi, Away: Shuffle Dungeon
features a scenario from Sakaguchi himself, music from Nobuo Uematsu,
and character designs by Sonic the Hedgehog creator Naoto Ooshima.
