The art and the level of polish are really impressive.

The time to make a decision is maybe too short, it's why the better strategy i found is avoiding the enemies instead of trying to shoot them. But the control and the beat based actions feels very pleasant to play.

Good job all the team !

Good game, well polished, well made. The art and sound design are really neat!

Developer

Thank you for playing the game, glad you liked it!

Its a fast paced action rythm game. Very polished for a jam I like that.  I think trying to running away is a better strategy instead of hitting other dices. Well done mate ^^ 

here is my highscore :P

Wow what a score! Thanks for playing :)

I’m addicted to your Art!!! It reminds me of Cuphead and it’s one of my fav games!

Thank you for the kind words!

Thank you so much! I do love me some cartoon aesthetics haha

The presentation is really outstanding! The concept and implementation were enjoyable... Seriously great job!

Very good presentation. It was incredibly hard to react to the rolls, and my die just stopped rolling itself at some point about a minute in. I really liked how you can smash into other dice with a move, that felt really good to play.

Developer

This is a known issue on the HTML version. The Windows build, however, does not have this same problem.

Developer(+1)

Unfortunately, the music stops instead of looping when it reaches the end in the HTML build of the game. The PC build has no problems about it, but we will try to fix the problem on the HTML build after the voting period is over!

Thank you for playing the game!

Such a good looking polished game! I wish there is more time between dice rolls, because it's too hard to react to the sides of the dice.

Developer

You can check the game once again after the voting period, we probably will add music tracks with lower BPM to increase the decision window for the players!

Thank you for playing the game!

Wow, what a cool concept! I loved the way you incorporated the dice into the game and how your movement and shooting is restricted by the dice rolls. The art style was great and animations were really smooth too! The only thing was that I felt there wasn't enough time to react to the dice rolls and I think maybe slowing down time a tiny bit or expanding the window for decision making would make it less frustrating. Regardless, I really enjoyed playing. Nice job!

Developer

After the voting period is over, we may add background music with lower BPM to make it possible so that the player can experience the game with longer decision windows. Lots of players found it not-so-easy to control the player in such a small period.

Thank you for your feedback and for playing the game!

The art and the music are very good to only have been done in two days, and I really like the idea! I do wish I'd have had more time to process what I was doing before shooting at a wall and running straight into a die lol, but I really liked the game!

Fantastic presentation with the art style and aesthetic. Very interesting concept where your rolls are time based rather than something you have control over. Simple controls, great abilities. I wish there was a little more control over certain things, for example the distance that you travel during movement rolls.

Submitted(+1)

Oh, looks like you can control move distance depending where your mouse is. Still, I would have liked to see the max distance just a little bit further.

Developer(+1)

Thank you for the feedback! We definitely will take that into consideration and iterate over certain variables and test the feeling after the voting period is over. Increasing the maximum distance the dice can travel might enhance the gameplay!

Thank you for playing the game!

Really perfect for a jam game ! Maybe a bit too fast on the rythm though ? But that's just a matter of taste and it's my only criticism ^^
Great job ! Full five stars !

Developer

The game is pretty difficult until you get the hang of it. We may alter the music BPM or add new soundtracks after the voting period. Thank you for the feedback regarding that!

I'm so happy that you enjoyed it!

Submitted(+1)

Damn, the concept is so cool!! Couldn't give less than a full 5 stars to this master piece! Good job!

Developer

That is so nice to hear, thank you for playing the game!

As an absolute sucker for rhythm games, i really like this game :D I love the fact that everything happens on the beat of the music. The art is also great; very simple, yet effective. Amazing job on this!! :D

A very short game but quite rich in replayability. Difficult at first glance but really fun to play. You have to be reactive and have some skill to get through it. I really liked it !

Very fun to mix rhythm into the random theme - nice and creative! 

Shame about the bug in the browser version - had a good start of a run ruined by it, but otherwise very well done.

Developer

We will fix the bug that occurs in the HTML build and re-upload the game once the voting period is done. That really is unfortunate.

Thank you for playing the game!

It may be short, but the concept is amazing! As a mobile time waster this is great. the art direction is spot on too.

Really fun game! Was a little difficult to shoot at the enemies while trying to run away but that is the challenge of the game I guess! Really like the art! Great job!

Developer

It is a bit challenging until you get the hang of it. Thank you for playing the game, glad you enjoyed it!

I had a lot of fun! Unfortunately, I got knocked off the screen and couldn't come back into view. The character just stopped moving around.

Thank you for reporting it, we'll try to fix the problem for the HTML build after the voting period is over. You can give a go to the PC build though, the problem does not exist there!

Thanks for playing the game!
