I won the game without hurting any monster. Monsters are friends!

What does the 4th ability do?

Super cool game! Pretty original concept for me anyways. really cool experience!

Really well executed game :) I didn’t really get when the dice values go up or down, or what are the stars here for. But I really like the graphics. The sounds and music are also neat. The game has Broughlikes vibes while having a bit more flexibility than just moving: it is a sweet spot for me.

Good job :)

I will say the weapons are a bit confusing at first, but the overall concept is solid, and for a jam, well-executed. Juggling and managing distinct powers is something I always enjoy in games, and this definitely scratched that itch for me. The overall 'paper fairy tale' aesthetic was also something that I personally found charming.

great game but I never figured out what the star on a dice does!

That's definitely something we need to improve. Thanks for the feedback!

I really enjoyed this; it’s a clever concept and well-executed.

I found myself missing a key feature of most turn-based roguelikes: the ability to wait a turn and allow the enemies to move. Frequently, I found myself a step away from an enemy, and unable to bring them a step closer without taking a hit.

what does the shape ability do, anything special or is it just underpowered

shape ability means the shape of the dice matters, in this case, the bomb is placed depending of the value of the dice

Music is really cool.

I won! Really superb presentation, love the visuals and nice pleasant audio. Feels like a commercial game rather than a week-long project. Would love to see more abilities/creative uses for the dice, and some more floors! Great work!

Thank you very much for your comments! We had to update the web and windows version and disable the jam builds because of an harmful noise some users reported. We explained everything in the description of the game. We're so sorry about it.

Super cool concept!

SOUND WARNING for those who decide to play this game. Once the game first loads, a LOUD gong sound plays immediately, peaking your sound system. It caused physical pain in my ears for a few minutes because I was using earbuds (on a low volume level). Have your sound system turned OFF when you first load it, and then turn it on when the first level appears.

Really sorry about this! My most sincere apologies! We just fixed that issue and hide versions with the noise bug so no one will encounter it again. I really hope you are fine after that unpleasant moment, it was never our intention to harm others.

Thank you so much! Yeah, I took a break and felt right as rain afterwards, I just needed to rest. Thank you again for fixing the sound issue so quickly!

really enjoy it. thanks

Nice game, I would have liked to play more than 6 chambers! I couldn’t work out what the yellow stars on the dice and door mean, I’ll have to play some more : )

(+2)

Cool! Nice and short, love the art style and music. Most things were very intuitive.

There's a horrible loud sound when I start the app, my poor ears.

Thank you Tann! And really, really sorry about the horrible loud sound :( We just fixed it! I hope your poor ears are now feeling better!
