Dragon Quest Characters: Torneko's Great Adventure 3 Advance: Mystery DungeonFT (Japanese: ドラゴンクエストキャラクターズ トルネコの大冒険3アドバンス 不思議のダンジョン) is a game developed by Chunsoft and Matrix Software and published by Square Enix on Game Boy Advance in 2004. It is part of the third and last set of the Torneko's Great Adventure series in the Dragon Quest Mystery Dungeon games.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The main character of the game is Torneko, originally localized as Taloon in North America, a merchant and playable character from Dragon Quest IV. Torneko can explore fully 3D dungeons and have members join his party. The player moves through randomly generated dungeons and uses turn-based action combat. The player can bring along creatures and henchmen to fight with them as they battle monsters in the dungeons. In the Game Boy Advance version, an addition mode is available in which the player can fight through four advanced dungeons independently of the game's story.

Some of the locations are not randomly generated. The game includes over 170 types of monsters, and a larger number of items and spells to use in combat than previous Torneko games.
