Whether you play Monopoly, the craps table at your local casino, or a game of Warhammer, we're sure you're all familiar with dice - those little cubes of luck and chance. Dice Jockey takes a little bit of a different tack, demanding you learn the layout of a six-sided die, and use this knowledge to align and match face values to create combos and complete levels.
Dragging a die with your finger will roll it along the game grid. The aim is to line up a series of dice so that they all display the same number on top. For example, three dice displaying the number three will create a combo chain, as will five dice showing the number five. Like the bank value on a domino, the side bearing one dot can be substitutes for another number, letting you complete combos when you're one matching face short.
Does that make sense? We hope so, because the game's tutorial wasn't particularly good at explaining the basics.
In Puzzle Mode, you complete combos to clear the screen. In Timed Mode, dice will drop onto the grid, replacing completed chains. As it takes a fair amount of time to memorise which rotations will give you the number you're looking for, you initially spend a lot of Timed Mode (and Survival Mode, for that matter) rotating dice randomly, hoping that the correct numbers will appear and complete your chain.
Once you understand how the dice move, there is enjoyment to be had with Dice Jockey. It does feel a little unfinished, though - There is no music, and the camera controls leave a lot to be desired. It's quite a unique concept, and the neon dice are fun to move around. But if you're a dice casting pro, you might want to try your luck elsewhere.
DescriptionDice Jockey is a simple and addictive puzzle game where you score by forming sets of dice with matching sides facing up.
To score, you will need to form sets of two adjacent 2's, three adjacent 3's , four adjacent 4's, and so on. 1's can be used to complete any set and combos can be made by adding the right dice to existing sets.
Dice Jockey includes 4 different game modes:
• Puzzle: Challenge yourself to clear dice using the minimum numbers of steps indicated in each level.
• Time limit: Race the clock and clear as many dice as possible in 2 minutes. The more your clear, the higher your score.
• Survival: Don't get left in the dust. Clear as many dice as possible before the grid completely fills with dice.
• Training: Remix your skills. Practice and improve your skills on a smaller game grid.
