OverviewOverview

Dicey Dungeons is video game adventure where you build a deck of cards to represent characters, attacks and weapons. Here the novelty is that these cards combine with dice roles to determine who wins battles.

Each turn, you or your enemy roll dice that slot into the equipment cards to determine their powerfulness. You can play as one of six characters each who have different starting kit. You then explore the branching dungeon map and encounter monsters to battle. Along the way you can discover treasure chests, health items, shops, and upgrade stations and exits to the next level.

If you die you have to start again, so it's a game you play in short bursts over and over. The goal is to reach the lowest level of the dungeon and defeat the boss. This then unlocks some progression that stays with you after death.

It's a great game to step into what is called roguelike dungeon adventures, without having to deal with overly complicated levelling up or complex battles. Here, even a beginner player can understand what is happening and make progress. That said, the game itself takes no prisoners and requires considerable skill to conquer.
