Pocolon dungeons (ポコロンダンジョンズ) from Grenge is finally coming to Southeast Asia! The free-to-play dungeon-crawling puzzle RPG for mobile, which will be titled Chain Dungeons for the region, will be published by Quest Drop in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines in Q3 2015. This follows an agreement between Quest Drop and Grenge, facilitated by CyberAgent, naming Quest Drop as publisher for Southeast Asia.
Chain Dungeons is currently published as Pocolon dungeons (ポコロンダンジョンズ) in Japan by Grenge, and as 波可龍迷宮 in Taiwan by Wayi. Pocolon dungeons (ポコロンダンジョンズ) was first published for iOS in Japan on June 25, 2014 with the Android version following on August 15, 2014. It is one of the third-highest grossing iOS games and the top grossing trivia Android game in Taiwan.
The dungeon-crawling adventure Chain Dungeons has been developed especially for the mobile puzzle lovers. Players will be able to explore dungeons and fight monsters for treasure simply by matching tiles of the same color. The longer the tile chain,the stronger the attack!
Monsters in Chain Dungeons are both friend and foe. Defeating a monster in the dungeon makes it drop an egg, gold or materials. Eggs hatch into adorable player monsters you can add to your dungeon-crawling team, while gold and materials can be used to strengthen existing weapons or armor or forge new ones. Monsters can also be levelled up or evolved by combining them.
Chain Dungeons has an attack system based on four elements: fire, water, lightning and earth. Each element has its own strengths and weaknesses. Every monster and equipment in the game – weapons, armor or helmets – is assigned its own element. Therefore picking the correct team of monster sidekicks and the right weapon can potentially give you a huge advantage over enemies when crawling through the dungeons.
Chain Dungeons’ titular dungeons are categorized into single element, double element and rainbow or multi-element dungeons.
Forging and Levelling!
Weapons and armor in Chain Dungeons can be forged from materials dropped by wild monsters. There are several weapon types in Chain Dungeons, allowing players to choose weapons that best suit their preferred battle style. These weapons and armor can also be evolved to stronger forms later when you obtain the right materials. Monsters can be evolved the same way – if you have the right monsters in your collection, you will be able to make your existing monsters stronger by evolving them.
Chain Dungeons also features a multiplayer mode where players can team up in parties of 4 to crawl special raid dungeons together. Multiplayer mode in Chain Dungeons is synchronous and turn-based, similar to popular games like Monster Strike but with a uniquely different dungeon system. The dungeon crawling mechanic in Chain Dungeons creates a richly immersive atmosphere not unlike an AAA MMORPG. Team interaction is also enhanced in Chain Dungeons with the inclusion of a gesture communication system: players can “like” their party member’s move by dropping a thumbs-up emoticon.
As Chain Dungeons’ publisher Quest Drop has a regional Southeast Asian production team, players will be able to expect localized content and events in the game. Look out for familiar faces from the region’s myths and legends! Southeast Asian folklore is a rich yet still unexplored world, and you’ll be able to experience more of it with Chain Dungeons.
Chain Dungeons will be available on Android and iOS in English, Thai, Bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese. Respective language support will coincide with the launch of the game in each territory.
