[Review]Gambling With Dice Hunter

By Nicolas See Tho on Oct 6, 2017

Games that use the RNG mechanics are usually a fan favorite as it equates to a fair chance for every player, but if Dice Hunter is anything to go by, RNG is required to move along the levels of progression. What is Dice Hunter? Well, in simple terms, Dice Hunter is what you get when you mix dices and collectible card games together creating a game that is rather unique and a wee bit nostalgic.

 

If you have played tabletop games like DiceMasters or Zombie Dice, then you might pick up Dice Hunter pretty quickly. The game works like a dungeon crawler whereby instead of using normal skills and weapons, you use 6 dices to play your way through the levels. By rolling a specific side of the die, you can deal damage, block incoming attacks or just fulfill certain field conditions to progress your gameplay.

The enemies in Dice Hunter are a varied bunch as well, some have armor which you can deplete by achieving conditions such as 2 lightning sided die, while some can gain life if they damage you. Battles happen in a turn-based system whereby each roll you make determines what you can do for that particular turn. Enemies also attack a countdown timer which is ticked down with each turn you make.

This leads to a lot of decision making on which enemies to kill first while also calculating the amount of damage one can mitigate in the coming turns. The skills you have in this game comes from your custom dices which you unlock via a lottery system, with each of these dices containing its own unique stats and abilities which you can use in battle.

While the game can be played free, it still has an energy system which means that you can pay to play faster, while dices can also be bought through the lottery system if your wallet is deep enough. This doesn’t mean that it will give you an edge though as even the basic dices when played well enough can prove to be a challenge if one is unlucky enough.

The graphics in this game is rather comical with elements of medieval concepts such as knights and soldiers being introduced and monsters like vampires and orcs being present as well. Each level represents an entirely new theme each time.

 

So if you feel like taking a gamble at this game, you can download it on the Google Play Store for free.
