Hi!

I made a game called Slice & Dice with pixel art from a3um. It took me way too long to code and I'm still working on it. It's a roguelike tactics dice game with lots of heroes and equipment. Simple turn-based combat, infinite undo, dumb combos to discover.





It is available on itch.io and android play store. There's a free demo and the full game costs $7 or so. I'm planning on releasing it on Steam/iOS some day too.

It took over the Android Gaming Megathread for quite a few pages. There's a Discord server too.

Edit: or play it on itch.io just go do now

Getting in on the ground floor of the thread about best mobile game of the last few years.

Has anyone here managed the unfair streak yet?

This is legit I think the only Android game I've paid for. I'm still working on achievements for the last handful of unlocks, myself.

Is there any way to tell which custom parties you've won with?

No, sorry. I'm thinking of removing the unlock from that achievement for the next version tbh. Maybe some pointless trophy shelf for weird/annoying achievements I don't want to force players to do!

You can check your match history for each mode, I don't know how far that scrolls though.

Game is good, hope it gets updated to fix some of the remaining crashes, and/or savescumming.

Most of my blowout victories have been from buffing these abilities up through items or boost abilities and one turn womboing everything.

Dancer's AoE rampage with any amount of damage upgrades is completely insane. You can deal so much damage to everything as long as your Dancer's HP holds out.

One of my best runs had a ranger with the "kill if under x hp" skill buffed to be up to something like 7 or 8 and given rampage, helped me effortlessly wipe the last three or four levels.

I've also had massive success with stacking +s on reroll and cantrip sides, you can quite happily end up with an infinite mana engine, or at least enough to nuke everything on the screen.

Hero guide by Thunder

Other misc tips:

-Cleanse is your friend due to all the bad status effects out there. It's not a bad idea to hold out for Monk or Cleric as your Tier 2 gray, and a Red with cleanse sides.
-Sometimes it's better to keep a mediocre side instead of rerolling and potentially getting a blank, or something unhelpful. Assess the situation before locking in your rolls. Can you kill an enemy or two and also keep everyone alive?

I like that guide quite a bit for the most part; the only thing I really disagree with is on Priestess. It's really not an uncommon situation to have 3+ heroes all dying at the same time, and it's a situation that priestess excels at.

Everything else is pretty solid advice I feel.

Downloaded and now I fear for my employment status.

Suggestions:
Engage shields hardly ever work on higher difficulties. May need to be adjusted

Necromancy: copy dying character's roll as your own. Maybe on Warlock or Keeper? Could be interesting

I'm buffing engage shields by buffing start-damaged so people don't pick it every time :)

Copying someone's roll is cool but it messes with saves unfortunately... plus it's quite similar to the re-use dice ability. It used to be in the game and it was cool to copy a dodge side!

My team got swept out of the playoffs, and all I got was this avatar and red text



Pretty fun!

Only issue: any chance for a colorblind mode or option? Hard to tell the difference between Red/Orange and their dice. Eventually I realized they have different sides so I could tell them apart.

I've been thinking about this. Non-colourblind people get to experience the pain in custom party mode! You can at least find out which hero they are by tapping the dice.

Lack of Cleanse is what almost always dooms every Unfair attempt I make.

Had an amazing run last night with an unbeatable team come to a screeching halt against the 3 witches. I appreciate how often I think "This team is unbeatable, how could I possibly lose?" and then immediately get my poo poo kicked in.

Was a fun romp going through Hard in the demo and then through Unfair in the retail game. The challenges in the game are pretty linear (enough raw stats to grind out fights, pay the mandatory cleanse tax, get enough boss killing power because dragon isn't tankable) and classes are largely just Better or Worse depending on how many boxes they check so it lacks the replayability of some games in a similar space to make it truly outstanding but that's ok, it was good brainfood for a bit. Thumbs up.

the three witches are wild because MOST of the time you get to them and just breeze past them without effort.

and then sometimes they wreck you before you can even get one down and it doesn't feel like it could have ever gone another way

Sounds like it's time for you to try the achievements and cursed mode.

Yes why don't I just hit this hero with 4 poison in one turn. No you can't kill me in one turn because I'm a boss lady.

I once had a run with a hero that had the item that increased die sides for each stack of poison you had. And had another hero with Undying. Then I got to add the rampage affix or whatever to the first hero. It was so broken I was trying to figure out how to give another hero a poison attack so I could give the first one more poison.

When we say "a flush of hero types" this means every hero is the same class right?

Some people have chained unfair wins together in a row. Some of us have done it once, and have since given up. Some of us have never even beaten Hard.
