    I came into Dicey Dungeons with high hopes and I was thoroughly blown away. It’s so smartly designed in how the classes and equipment all work together to create consistently unique and creative instances where you have to squeeze the usefulness out of almost every play style and strategy. The episodic design fits it very well, because it makes the early parts far more approachable, while keeping the variety up enough that even later episodes slow you down, you still have so much to enjoy. Dicey Dungeons is an amazing game that I’d almost call a roguelike game for people who don’t like roguelikes. You do have to like turn-based combat, though. And dice.

    Well, this game is just plain awesome. It’s kind of a dungeon-crawl roguelite thing, but the battles use an interesting dice mechanic that really helps the game stand out. As you make your way through each floor, you’ll find various skills that you can pick and choose from to fill out your battle actions. Each turn you roll a number of dice and assign them to those skills to use them. There are lots of different kinds of enemies and skills, and the maps themselves, while simple, have some points of interest and branching paths you can choose to explore. One of those games where you fire it up meaning to play for twenty minutes and end up playing for four hours. I’d expect no less from Terry Cavanagh, though.

    Terry Cavanaugh has done it again with Dicey Dungeons; this is easily one of the best roguelike titles you can currently purchase for the Switch. Loads of gameplay variety, fantastic music, a high skill ceiling and friendly visuals make this a thoroughly gripping and fun experience you won’t want to miss out on. If you like roguelikes or card games, we’d highly recommend you pick this up as soon as you can – and even if you don’t, we’d still encourage you to check it out regardless.

    Dicey Dungeons is another worthy roguelike experience for Nintendo Switch that’s not only incredibly satisfying to play but also features a unique hook in its use of dice. We may be a little spoilt for choice when it comes to the roguelike genre but Dicey Dungeons is an addition you’ll want to make time for.

    Great game for quick sessions with a complete run taking about 15 min. It’s like a light hearted slay the spire, but still requires strategyGreat game for quick sessions with a complete run taking about 15 min. It’s like a light hearted slay the spire, but still requires strategy and has a bunch of characters with different mechanics to get good at. Sometimes the chance element dooms a run, especially with certain characters (I’m looking at you witch and robot). But overall I’m having a great time playing and recommend it. Full Review »

Then I heard that it's coming to Nintendo Switch. At first, I was quite conflicted. I was excited for such a great game on a portable device, but at the same time I was afraid that they might screw up the controls. In the end controls came out great and intuitive as well.
    It's a colorful game with an awesome concept of attacking with dice rolls (in some way xd). Dicey dungeons is a rogue-like game with catchy music, easy to understand game mechanics, some challenging enemies and quite various pull of characters to play (game feels different while playing different characters).
    I do recommend it, it's a comfy game, which is worth its price.
