Doraemon Nobita no Dorabian Nights is a side scrolling action game by
Hudson Soft and is the second Doraemon game released for the PC Engine
system. The game is based on a animated movie originally published in 1991 and starts
when Doraemon's friends decide to visit the various worlds hidden inside
their favorite books - Sadly, the poor kids quickly realize that it wasn't
such a brilliant idea and they all end up being trapped inside the same books.
Doraemon must now run to their rescue. The various stages take the popular blue robot-cat
to the realm of dinosaurs or to creepy haunted houses. Doraemon can run, jump
or use his stunt gun to freeze his enemies for a few seconds. Special items
are also scattered around the game and can be found by exploring caves or by
standing on top of bigger enemies or elements of the scenery - the ones worth
mentioning are the flying-hat giving the player the ability to fly and therefore
skip most of a stage, or a special cream enabling him to walk on water. New weapons
can also be collected throughout the game, such as the log_gun or homing-bomb-gun.
Each 'book world' is divided into several sub-zones all connected by blue doors
and Doreamon is free to revisit completed stages at his own volition.
