Toki (original title JuJu Densetsu, "Legend JuJu") was an Arcade Game Platform Game made by TAD Corporation in 1990, that never received any sequels but was ported to a few systems a short time later. It is a simple little game, that was well received and still remembered to this day in Retro Gaming circles.

The Excuse Plot tells the story of a tribesman, Toki, whose girlfriend Miho was kidnapped by the evil witch doctor Vookimedlo, who also turns Toki into a cartoonish little chimp. Toki then has to fight through five dangerous environments and Vookimedlo's lair to regain his love and humanity. Luckily, the transformation gave him the ability to spit energy globes from his mouth, that are also his main weapon.

A HD remake of this game by Golgoth Studio is supposedly in the works.


Tropes that can be found in Toki:

  • One Up: In some versions, these exist.
  • Blind Idiot Translation: The descriptions of the levels are full of little mistakes, the most amusing example is possibly the one for the third level:

  MADE BOLD BY HIS RECENT CONQUESTS, TOKI ENTER THE BLAZING HART OF THE CAVERNS OF FIRE IN SEARCH OF MIHO. HERE, HE WILL FACE A DEADLY TEST AGAINST MOGULVOR [1] THE BEASTLY GUARDIAN OF THIS UNDERGROUND INFERUO.

Notes

  1. should be Mogulvar, by the way
  2. "Going Apeshit", get it?
