Parent's Guide

As the name suggests, Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal is a dungeon crawling role-playing game for the PS Vita, in which players explore dungeons and do battle with the monsters that live inside. Playing as Fried Einhard, you're put in charge of a gaggle of fighting women, and need to work your way through the labyrinth-like dungeons, defeating monsters and 'sealing' their souls away in your book, in an attempt to help control their population - and hopefully solve the mystery of the sudden earthquakes and monster resurgence.

As you move around the dungeons, you'll get attacked at random by groups of enemies, kick-starting a battle. Turn-based affairs, you and your companions take it in turns with the monsters to attack, use magic spells and special skills, whittling their health down to zero. Different members of your team have different strengths and weaknesses, so there is some element of strategy to the battles - for example, it's best to have your stronger, more melee-orientated fighters in the front line to take hits and dish out heavy damage, whilst keeping your weaker magic users and support characters towards the rear, where they can sling spells and heal their companions in relative safety. One thing worth noting though is that spells and some abilities do have a 'casting time' associated with them, which means your healing spell may not be as instantaneous as you hoped, firing off after a bit of a delay - leave it too long and the target for your spell could have bitten the dust!

Compared to many dungeon crawlers, Dungeon Travelers 2 is a fairly straightforward one, not being overly hard or complex - you may find you need to 'grind' a little, doing a bit of extra-curricular dungeon exploring and battling, to strengthen your team before a particularly tricky boss battle, but by and large battles are fairly forgiving. The first few hours, when your team is only two people strong and fairly weak can be a bit more challenging however, as your healing woman tends to die every few battles if you're not careful - but once you get past this initial hurdle, it's fairly smooth sailing.

    Mature Content

    Boobs, boobs everywhere and barely a top to cover them, basically. With a plethora of female protagonists and enemy 'monsters' (scorpion women, girls with cat ears and tails, nurses etc), all dressed in pretty provocative clothes, revealing ample amounts of cleavage, buttocks and skin, you might want to cover little Timmy's eyes for this one. Boss characters in particular are often shown in compromising positions, such as on their backs, legs spread, bent over or tied up with vines, with their clothes ripped off with nary a lock of hair, strand of ribbon or hand to cover their nipples etc. There's also a fair few 'upskirt' shots of your team mates, as well as slightly risqué massage scenes, hot baths, and two female companions who climb into your bed to wake you up (with tickles, of course!). Technically speaking, you don't actually see anything 'naughty', but it's certainly hinted at very strongly, while the dialogue is peppered with innuendos and references, whether it's referring to someone's "tying-yourself-up fetish" or an item that's been worn down by too much grinding, "kinda like my ex".

    In terms of other such mature content, Dungeon Travelers 2 is fairly tame by comparison - bad language is limited to the very occasional utterance of sh*t or p*ssed off, while violence is more implied than anything. During battles, attacks are accompanied by flashes of light and impact noises, with the occasional cry of pain, but there's no blood spurts, guts or gore whatsoever. The closest you come is the occasional enemy whose design is shown as having small bloodstains on clothes or weapons.
