Reviews Featuring ‘Dicefolk’, Plus the Latest New Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for June 26th, 2024. Another quiet Wednesday, with but one single new game to take a look at. I do have a little review of the enjoyable roguelite Dicefolk for you, though. Again, I would have liked to have had more, but that’s what I managed. After that, we look at that new release and then roll into our usual lists of new and expiring sales for the day. Let’s dive into what we have!

Reviews & Mini-Views

Dicefolk ($14.99)

Is adding dice and a bit of creature collecting enough to spice up the Slay The Spire/Darkest Dungeon turn-based roguelite formula? You know, I think it is. To an extent, anyway. Dicefolk has the same basic set-up as other games of this sort. You’ve got your little map for each stage and choose where you’re going to go next, with each spot offering a battle, a shop, or event of some kind. Eventually you’ll have to fight a boss battle, after which you move to the next map. In this game your party is a group of monsters, and you’ll have opportunities to swap in new ones here and there.

When it’s time to fight, things get a little interesting. Each turn, the dice are rolled for both your team and the opposing team. You don’t progress to the next turn until all of those dice have been used up, and the kicker is that you get to choose the order those actions play out in. Both yours, and the enemies’. That… is actually a pretty neat twist. As you play through you’ll be able to customize your dice faces with new actions, and the gear and badges you find will also make a difference in battles. It’s quite enjoyable, even if it does wear thin a little sooner than some games of this type.

While the title of Dicefolk might have you thinking the dice are the most intriguing gimmick of this game, it’s actually the battle system’s set-up of having you control both your party and the enemy party that truly stands out. In other respects, this is a fairly ordinary but well-made example of its genre. If you enjoy turn-based roguelites, you might want to give Dicefolk a bit of your time.

SwitchArcade Score: 4/5

Go Go Jump!!! ($9.99)

Is this really all we have today? I guess so! This is a platformer with ninety different challenges to complete. It’s not your standard platformer, despite the fact that you’ll just be moving left or right and jumping. Indeed, it’s almost like a series of platforming mini-games. It’s also pretty goofy, which adds a bit of charm to the proceedings. Well, it’s the only new game for today. Do with it what you will.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

It’s one of those days without too much going on sales-wise, but football/soccer fans will find the two big titles for that sport are on sale right now. In the outbox, there’s still time to get some affordable legendary shoot-em-ups at reasonable prices. Check both of those lists and make your choices!
