CriteriaRankScore*Raw Score

Ranked from 31 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your game fit the theme?
The game utilizes the idea of rolling the dice and getting a different result - for example, a different weapon - depending on what side it lands on. But at the same time, the dice is the player character, and it must be moved to avoid enemies and their attacks and put itself in an advantageous position. So your movement and your weapon choice are interlinked and you must account for both in your moment-to-moment decisionmaking.

Interesting concept. I like the idea of linking the player projectile with his movement. Rolling the dice feels a little bit slow tho. Overall the game is done well, could use a little polishing and maybe not so relaxing music, but something more suited for a battle. But yeah great idea, good job.


Brilliant idea to introduce a change of power/gameplay by forcing the player to move in order to avoid projectiles!

Great submission!


Loved the art and the gamplay. the music fits really well too. Overall great entry :D


Nice mechanic - I like how dodging has an impact on your ability - that was well presented :)

I think a bit more juice to add some ommph to the spells would be nice- but 48 hours isn’t a long time.


This is a game worth strategize, I can imagine this game become a more polished one. Good Job!


In earth spell we trust! Nice work on the game, died a few time instantly from rolling on a bullet from behind, but it just added to the challenge


I think this game is very unique because to avoid the bullets, you change the weapon dictated from the dice, I very appreciated it


The goblins look really nice, I almost felt bad shooting them. The game was a little bit too slowpaced for my liking but good job.


Really creative and the music is cute, but i think the game is a bit too slowpaced. i could never really get away from the goblins in time to get a good score.


Great Concept! Played it for a little longer than other games.

In my opinion,  one thing that could be improved is the rolling speed of the dice. You feel stuck in an area when multiple goblins surround you.

Anyways, a good game for the theme! Cheers!


Thanks! Glad you had fun. Game speed and other parameters definitely could use some tweaking ;)


Awesome concept. Wish the dice was a really faster without the shift button tho.


Really like the movement and the attacks syncing with your die number! Maybe a little faster would be a QoL change.


This was a really fun game! I liked how the attacks were made and that they did different things. It might be nice to have an enemy health bar. Definitely a good game.
