Now that looks like a fun puzzler!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

It's kind of not, though. I've got it on XBLA and they run out of ideas for puzzles really early into the game, so it turns into an action game with killer dice speeding around and stuff to avoid and curses that invert your controls and stuff. It's mainly an exercise in frustration with no puzzles at all.

Disclaimer: Of course, they could have made an entirely new version for iPhone with none of those issues.

Are you serious? The sudden switch in genre sounds a bit far-fetched.

It does look good, but I think I'll wait for some impressions and a video before I decide.

I downloaded the XLA version and it was pretty bad IMO, won't be buying this.

This is also in the PS3 store. I tried the demo but didn't really care for it.

From the look of the videos (there is a version for an awful lot of systems it appears) I found it looks like Diamond Island or Nintaii game mechanics? But maybe the added moves can only be made from the number on the dice? I can't quite see what the dice does yet. But I am definitely giving it a look when released in the US!

(thanks Dave!)

There are dice blocking the way, and to get them out of the way you have to roll your die next to them so that the number on the top of yours matches the number on the top of the one that's blocking you. That's the only dice-based activity within.
