Dicey Dungeons Physical Release on Switch

September 27, 2022 0 Comments
It’s time to defy Lady Luck in the roguelike deck-builder, Dicey Dungeons. Released on the Nintendo Switch in 2020, it’s escaping it’s digital (finally!). Super Rare Games will sell a total of 5,000 copies in total, so if you want to secure a copy, make sure to purchase it from the Super Rare Games.

The physical edition will come with all the current content of the game, including the Reunion DLC, a full-color manual, interior artwork, and exclusive sticker, and trading cards. 

Luck won’t save you this time. You’ll need skills to survive this game. Become a giant walking dice and battle to the end of an ever-changing dungeon and fight monsters, find better loot, and level up your heroes as you work together to take down the Goddess of Fortune, Lady Luck herself. Balance your carefully planned strategies against the unknown of a dice roll.

Key Features:
  • SIX PLAYABLE CHARACTER: Choose between 6 wildly different classes: Warrior, Thief, Robot, Jester, Inventor, and Witch.
  • DOZENS OF ENEMIES: Fight and defeat a variety of enemies from Vacuum Cleaners that want to suck your blood, to creatures from Irish mythology, to suave malevolent snowmen.
  • ENDLESS REPLAYABILITY: Re-enter the dungeon for a totally different experience due to procedurally generated levels.
  • REUNION DLC INCLUDED: A major new DLC released in July that comes with six new episodes, one for each contestant, new music, new art, new equipment, and new gameplay. Dicey Dungeons is bigger than ever!
  • CATCHY SOUNDTRACK: Take on Lady Luck to the catchy, upbeat, and energetic beats by Chipzel
  • CARTOONY ART STYLE: Get immersed in the beautiful and adorable artwork by Marlowe Dobbe.




Once all 5,000 copies are gone, you’ll have to wait for a copy to appear on the second-hand market or just get it digitally via the Nintendo eShop. I've already made my order and am excited for it's arrival!

 
If you love this game, you should definitely get it!

Toki Tori 2+ Getting Started Guide: The Basics

June 19, 2022 0 Comments
Welcome to my little guide on Toki Tori 2+

Basics

Let's start with the basics, throughout the game you only have 2 move sets (well, 3 if you count moving):
  1. Chirping: used to to attract animals in the direction you want them to be /go. You can also chirp different melodies which do certain things (more on that later on).
  2. Stomping: used to repel animals or move them to where you want to be. This move is also used to break platforms and push down pillars.


Melodies

Melodies are used are consecutive sequences of chirps which results in special effects. There are 2 types of chirps, Long (L) and Short (S) Notes.

Here are the melodies you can use in the game:

  • Finder (LSSS): This points towards any collectibles on the screen. If none appear, then you got them all in that screen!
  • Camera (LSLS): This summons a camera which you use to take pictures of animals and things which are then added to your Tokidex. Complete it, and something good will happen!
  • Map (LLSSLL): This brings up the world map and it comes in handy when you need to orientate your sense of direction.
  • Eagle (SSLSSL): This melody allows you to fast travel. It is only usable at a checkpoint. However, you can only land at obelisks.
  • Rewind (SSLL): This is the "Restart Checkpoint" option. Anything you did between that point and the last checkpoint will NOT be saved. You'd have to re-do it all over again. So this should be your very last resort!     


Walkthrough Gameplay

If you need a walkthrough or guide to complete the game, I found this cool collection on Youtube which I use as a reference too from time to time as the game can be a little confusing.


So there you have all the basics you need to start you adventure!

Toki Tori 2+ on the Nintendo Switch

May 03, 2022 0 Comments

Toki Tori 2+ is a metroidvania game, which just means it’s is a sub-genre of action-adventure video games focused on non-linear and utility-gated exploration and progression: the player travels through a map to collect items and gain new abilities, both of which open up the world to further exploration.

You play a chicken tasked by 5 ancient frogs to travel the country to destroy the floating crystal endangering everything. With only 2 moves, whistling and stomp, puzzles are to be solved as you progress towards your goal.

Unlike most of the games with explicit instructions and clear tutorials. This game leaves it to you to explore and solve your own puzzles. It can get frustrating trying to figure out what to do and where to go, but the satisfaction from solving the puzzles is amazing. The puzzles strike a really good balance of difficulty by demanding the player to observe their surroundings and plan their moves without ever getting too frustrating (if it does, just take a break before coming back to it again).

When I started playing, I got stuck and had to reset progress at least 3 times. But it got better the more I played and discovered new areas. It’s a relaxing game… that is… once you’ve learned something about the ecosystem of other creatures you manipulate with the only 2 moves you have.

Rule of thumb: If you cannot solve the puzzle, move on in another direction, just take a break and come back to it later. As you progress, you learn new ways of doing things and you can then come back to those puzzles to solve them with the new knowledge you’ve acquired.

The game also has various features such as the Tokidex

The Tokidex

During gameplay, you can use a song to bring up the camera, which is controlled via controllers to take pictures of the creatures that appear in the world. For that you get rewarded for collecting pictures of every creature in the game.

For USD$14.99 (or even less at USD$3.59 when there’s sales on e-Shop), it’s worth it!
You can also just download the Demo to try it out before buying it.
