I’m judging games for the Independent Games Festival, and ran across Circadian Dice. I think it’s been mentioned in one of the indie threads, too. It’s got some broad similarities to Slice and Dice, and it’s quite fun, if a little clunky in places. Also inexpensive!
Any recommendations on focusing what to unlock? I see there are a bunch that depend on # of victories, but they may take a while. I can usually win on normal. I tried hard mode and lost, but there is an unlock I can try for by getting a win.
Edit: Actually, I was mistaken. For number of victories unlocks, I thought it meant winning the total game, not individual battles. So it will move along much faster than I thought.
I was trying to get the unlock for beating Unfair difficulty. I was also trying to beat Loot mode on Easy (I don’t know if there’s an unlock for that, but probably). But they were both too hard and I was getting frustrated.
Now I’m just playing Blursed mode, which is way more fun, and I get occasional random unlocks just from picking certain heroes or certain items.
Right now I only have classic, custom and shortcut unlocked. To unlock loot mode it says to complete any mode with 12+ items. How would you even get that many items? The game only offers so many on a single run. I’m guessing I need to unlock whatever it is after you win 75 battles. Actually I may have done that on my phone - I think it is paste mode?
My first win in Classic Unfair, and I beat the final boss on turn 0.
The Hand has crazy dice but gives all your heroes +1 on all faces of your dice. I had a curse that capped my characters at 6 HP/pips on dice, and I had the Flawed Diamond treasure that gives pristine to your left and middle face if you’re at full HP but also gives +4 empty HP so you can’t start a fight with it active. But because of the curse, the empty HP didn’t apply, and with another treasure that gave +1 to all faces with the lowest pips and with the boss bonus (which apparently applied first), I had the middle face on my Sorcerer as 6 rerolls. With another character with a 2 reroll face and two damage cantrips, I hit one of the big rerolls early and was able to chain into as many as I needed to finish off the boss without ever needing to stop rolling.
