Game Description: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.
