Launched in 2004, the Flash-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Dofus turned out to be so popular that it led to the release of a French animated series titled “Dofus: The Treasures of Kerubim” in 2013. And now, that series is the basis of a film, titled “Dofus – Book I: Julith,” which premiered in France yesterday, Feb. 3.
To tie in with the release of the film, a fun and polished iOS game has also been released. It’s called Dofus Pogo.

Defend the egg
In Dofus Pogo, as in the film, a precious dragon egg called the Ebony Dofus arouses the covetousness of many. Fortunately, a bunch of cute but hard-hitting bird-like creatures called Tofus are around to protect the Ebony Dofus from the hordes of monsters that are intent on stealing it.
Dofus Pogo is an action arcade game that has you flinging the Tofus to hit the thieving monsters. You just have to place your finger above a Tofu and adjust your aim to let the monsters realize that the Tofus’ name may very well have been derived from tough.
But while that may sound easy, just you wait until a quick succession of monsters start coming. Then the game really becomes a test for your speed and reflexes.
Aim for a high score
Dofus Pogo challenges you to aim for the monsters and to aim ultimately for a high score. To get more points, you must be able to make chains and carry out combo attacks. You may also activate the power of the Ebony Dofus and get rid of all of your enemies in one fell swoop.
As you progress through the levels, you can climb up the leaderboard, unlock rewards, and discover images that feature some of the plot points of “Dofus – Book I: Julith.”
Another hit from Ankama
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Dofus Pogo is available now on the App Store for free.
Dofus Pogo is certainly not the first iOS game set in the Dofus universe. The first was Dofus: Battles, a lane defense game released in May 2011; its sequel, the lane attack game Dofus: Battles 2, followed in April 2012.
Like the other games in the Dofus franchise, Dofus Pogo is developed by the French game manufacturer Ankama, which is also behind the strategy game Tactile Wars, released last August, and the arcade-style game King Tongue, released last November.
