Endearing, compulsive, and just weird enough to want to keep exploring.

Dicey Dungeons is an occasionally frustrating but nevertheless entertaining roguelike that mixes deck building with unpredictable dice rolls.

Dicey Dungeons is the sort of game that looks inviting, then seems a little silly, and then gets lodged into my head like a song I keep humming. These basic ideas are being explored in many games right now, but Dicey Dungeons proves once again that execution, not originality, is often the most important thing.

The charming dungeon crawler builds itself around the chaos of dice. Choose one of six characters, each with their own unique skills and way utilize your rolls of the six-sided die. Combat is rather fun, the artwork feels like a pop-up book, and the electronic soundtrack will have you tapping your foot. Despite the characters and additional modes though, it doesn't feel like Dicey Dungeons expands upon its early hours of play enough. Still, it's an enjoyable roguelite dungeon crawler.

In Dicey Dungeons, everything is already on the table. It’s a highly replayable game that you can pick up for short sessions whenever the moment strikes.

I had my doubts going into Dicey Dungeons, despite the pedigree present. I was worried the core reliance on random dice rolls would create a frustrating experience for the player. And while I've had those moments, I always felt that I could look back and say "that's where I went wrong" and not "the random numbers just didn't work out in my favor!" That alone is an incredibly feat. Stack it on top of six incredibly unique character mechanics, episodes that force the exploration of alternate playstyles, and an expertly crafted aesthetic, and you have another absolute slam dunk from Terry Cavanagh.

"Deckbuilding roguelike?" Whatever you want to call it, this game is fun.

If you love building decks, strategizing five moves ahead, and combating randomness, Dicey Dungeons is the game for you. If not, you still might want to consider giving it a try for the cute, game show aesthetic and chiptune soundtrack alone. And who knows, you might be surprised how much you enjoy the deck building.

Challenging dice knots with role-playing substructure and Roguelite borrowings.

Terry Cavanaugh has done it again with Dicey Dungeons; this is easily one of the best roguelike titles you can currently purchase for the Switch. Loads of gameplay variety, fantastic music, a high skill ceiling and friendly visuals make this a thoroughly gripping and fun experience you won't want to miss out on. If you like roguelikes or card games, we'd highly recommend you pick this up as soon as you can – and even if you don't, we'd still encourage you to check it out regardless.

Under its goofy premise, Terry Cavanagh's new production is a very well designed title. Really strategic and offering a huge display of combinations, Dicey Dungeons can also be a little frustrating as we can win or lose on a roll of a dice.

A brilliant Indie time-killer that's easy to pick up but oh so difficult to put down, Dicey Dungeon deserves lavish praise for its simple design but perplexing gameplay. A must-have for deck-builder fans and dice junkies alike.

Dicey Dungeons is a dice-based strategy game. Everything inside the game is connected by dice, which contributes a lot to the solid and interesting combat experience. However, as the time goes on, you will lose your mood to enjoy it within a couple of hours, since it doesn't have too much content to play.

Dicey Dungeons is an amazing game that I'd almost call a roguelike game for people who don't like roguelikes. You do have to like turn-based combat, though. And dice.
