The main gameplay of Tiny Dice Dungeon
is to battle and capture monsters. Once captured, you then use these monsters to battle and capture more monsters. Sound familiar? This RPG does bare a striking to Pokemon
, and the cool retro graphics do remind me of the Pokemon
Nintendo DS games. But there are many differences as well. Cross Pokemon
with Dungeons and Dragons
, and I think Tiny Dice Dungeon
is what you would get.
After reading through a humorous, if rather longwinded tutorial, you can begin your quest to save a village, which has been destroyed by monsters. It is your job to defeat the monsters, capture them, find the missing villagers, and repair their homes.
So just how do you defeat the monsters? With a sword? The answer is yes and no. At the beginning of the game, your hero has two dice; roll these dice, and whatever number you get is the amount of damage inflicted upon your opponent. You can roll, however many times you like, but get a one, and you miss your turn.
To capture monsters you have to roll the exact number of your opponent's HP. After that, you can equip it as a companion to help in battle. The more you battle, the more you increase your level, and the more monsters you can equip.
While fighting little monsters is fun, the challenge comes when you get to the boss monster, and have to gamble on how many times it is safe to roll.
Once a boss is defeated, you can open a treasure chest. What I like about the treasure chests, is that there a multiple to choose from. Some have lots of coins, some have rare items, and others have 'barely useful' coins. The most valuable treasure, however, are dice fragments.
These fragments can be put together to create powerful dice with special powers, such as multiplying your score, increasing health, or poisoning a monster.
As well as the main quest, there are also mini games you can play when you find villagers, and a multiplayer mode, where you can battle people online. Although at first the concept may seem similar to Pokemon
, as you get more into it, it evolves into something quite different.
