Dice Journey is a dice poker game for iPhone and iPad.
There are 6 game worlds in the game: • mafia; • casino; • pirates; • hunters; • vampires; • the circus.
Each world is distinguished by art, characters, musical accompaniment and behavior of AI opponents.
The essence of the game: in each world there are 4 characters (1 boss + 3 NPCs), which differ in logic and the increasing difficulty of passing. The task is to defeat the enemy, for this the player receives in-game currency and boosters. Duration of the game depends on the bet size. Bigger bets give you a chance to win more chips.
Turn consists of 3 rounds (3 dice rolls). The sum of the points is doubled if the winning combination is collected in the first round. When the player does not collect any combination, he receives 1 skull. 3 skulls subtract 500 points.
Boosters help you get more points. The in-game currency is used to purchase - Dice Dollars. Only 1 booster can be used in 1 turn.
If you win by one star advantage, a new enemy is opened. Defeating all opponents with 3 stars grants one unique aura. The aura gained once will appear in all the worlds, including the new ones.
