■ Game Flow
1. Take care of Toriko in a survival environment known as a “terrarium.”
Toriko cannot survive in a world contaminated by toxic fungi. The player takes on the role of a robot who takes care of Toriko in the terrarium where Toriko spends her days.
Give Toriko food when she is hungry, and work with factoryAI to treat her when she is feeling under the weather. It is also important to flesh out the environment inside the terrarium for Toriko, who waits by herself while the robot is out exploring.
2. Explore dungeons and gather the things you need.
Head out to the dungeon to gather the things you need to take care of Toriko. Since dungeons are “random dungeons” that change form each time you enter, you can enjoy a different dungeon exploration experience each time.
Items acquired while exploring can be used in combat, so make sure to utilize them when necessary. After you finish exploring, you can bring back the items you acquired as “resources.”
—You can still bring back items even if you are defeated in battle, so explore as much as you can.
—New dungeons will also appear, including deserts and crystalized areas. Look out for items and recipes unique to each stage.
3. Use resources to craft items.
Items acquired while exploring dungeons can be converted into “resources” and brought back to the terrarium. Use resources and recipes to craft terrarium decorations and items.
By crafting, you can also trigger a craft bonus. Craft bonuses increase the robot’s stats (ATK, DEF, HP) while exploring, and can make exploration more pleasant by increasing Toriko’s feeling of fullness and the terrarium’s resistance to contamination.
4. Decorate your terrarium with crafted decorations.
Use crafted decorations and items to decorate your terrarium. The atmosphere of the terrarium will change depending on the objects used, and Toriko’s behavior will change as well, so create various terrariums while playing with Toriko.
—Toriko can play with the furniture and toys you place in the terrarium. But standing on chairs is dangerous!
—Toriko is feeling good inside a beautiful terrarium. She cannot help but sing about it!
