An Introduction to Dice Hunter: Quest of the Dicemancer
Combining elements of both luck and skill, Dice Hunter: Quest of the Dicemancer is extremely easy to pick up and enjoy on the go, yet deep enough to invoke thought-provoking strategy and tactical gameplay. Players adopt the role of “Dicemancer” who in a ‘Pokemon’ style world kept the Land of Chance at peace by capturing creatures into dice until one day the evil Snake Eyes tried to usurp control with his wicked ways.
Dice Hunter: Quest of the Dicemancer : Gameplay
In turn based format, players start out by simply swiping to roll the dice to attack, defend or create combos and unlock features. Yet as the game progresses, players must unlock, collect and upgrade new dice each with their own unique skills and elemental attributes. Each swipe rolls the dice yet players can limit the luck of rolls by locking in set symbols and selecting designated targets in attempts to strategically navigate attacks through the puzzle like levels. Branching out from the standard single player quest, players can also engage in elemental events and daily tournaments etc.

Tips ‘n’ Tricks for Dice Hunter: Quest of the Dicemancer
It is imperative to beware of the strengths and defenses of each enemy. By taking note of which enemies are armored or safe behind walls etc. players can then tactically select which barrier or enemy to attack first to negate future attacks. This is essential to make use of since enemies are stunned upon falling. Therefore, players can calculate present attacks against future enemies and then decide upon to focus on leaving barriers to block certain enemies whilst focuses on lowering long range enemies which if left unattended will continue to chip away at health from afar or to focus all firepower on powerful bosses or even just concentrate on raising shields.
Each roll allows players to lock in one or more die. By not using this feature for a single roll, it accumulates up to five. Therefore if there is no immediate need for a specific roll, then it is best to save up the lock-in feature for later rolls. As with the previous hint of targeting enemies, it is essential that players eliminate as much luck as possible by locking in desired symbols. For example, knights’ armour will have to be broken by two lightning bolts before their health can be attacked. Similarly, all Orcs on screen can have their health depleted by one simply by rolling a single heart. Therefore, it is far more profitable to lock in these essentially non-offensive symbols which can actually do much more damage than a single attack sword.
Use the Elementals!
From level eleven onwards levels contain elemental qualities which can be capitalized by using corresponding character dice when playing these levels. With favoured elementals receiving a 100% bonus to their stats, it is far more worthwhile switching out stronger, higher tier non elemental die for dice that can make the most of the boost bonuses.
Upgrades and Evolution.
It is extremely important to keep in mind that whilst multiple die can be obtained, a maximum of six can ever be played in a single mission, and that is after a whole lot of gameplay! Therefore, players need to pay significant attention to the finer points and stats of each character die. Not only does each die have different power stats and health which change when upgrading, players must also think of combinations with other dice and positions of placement, i.e. top three / front row, or the not. Collecting shards allows players to evolve die to much higher levels and as such, careful care needs to be given when upgrading as more often than not it is best to save coins and think of the long game by only upgrading the best one or two dice to as high as possible rather than spread all available resources thinly over all dice.
Personal Impressions // Review of Dice Hunter: Quest of the Dicemancer
Whilst self-depicted as being a puzzle RPG by developers, Dice Hunter: Quest of the Dicemancer actually has very little role playing qualities. This however is not a major issue, had the storyline been a little more in-depth then finishing levels and chapters would be slightly more rewarding and also inspire longer gameplay.
The simplicity of gameplay yet ability to minimalize the luck aspects of the game makes for very enjoyable and addictive gameplay! The graphics and sound effects are extremely adequate considering the lightweight download size. The energy meter is not overtly ungenerous yet does limit lengthy sessions of gameplay especially upon higher levels and certain events which cost much more to enter.
The in-game advertising is quite heavy yet since they are all selective as opposed to obtrusive uncontrollable pop-ups, players can view short videos to boost rewards or earn timely bonuses or alternatively not click and not watch at all. Thus all in all, Dice Hunters is a fun easy to enjoy and free to play game with some unique attributes and as such, scores four stars out of five.
