"it’s a fun application that makes me remember the hours and hours I spent playing Risk as a kid" -- TechCrunch.com
"It's a simple, point-and-click strategy game thats dangerously addictive." -- Kotaku.com
This quick game of strategy is based on Dice Wars and Risk. Your goal is to conquer the map against up to 6 out of 99 unique bots. Work your way up the leaderboard through each point level until you're playing with the best.
Play on the go: games last from 1-10 minutes.
- unlimited number of unique maps
- play against 1 or up to 6 bots
- 6 sizes of maps from small to extra large
- keep track of your ranking and score relative to the bots
- 99 unique bot AI's to play against
Check out kdice.com for a free online version.
NOTE ON DICE ROLLS: The game treats every player the same including you. The bots ARE NEVER favored. They follow the same random rolling for the player. The higher up the leaderboard you are the better decisions they make but they NEVER have a roll advantage. I value the strategic aspect of KDice very much and would never compromise the integrity of the game to make things harder for you.
What's New in Version 1.0.4
Updated for iOS 8
Wait for a bug fix
Critical bugs in the leaderboard and actual gameplay render this app useless.
In one game, an AI player was identified as "you" and when it lost, I automatically lost. In another game, after I won, the game didn't end, and I was forced to start a new one and register my win as a loss. These bugs kept me from rising in the leaderboard and gaining access to more advanced AI opponents.
This app should not have been released with these bugs, and it's not even worth the 99 cents.
buggy & mostly abandoned
There's a showstopper bug where it loses track of territories. You win the game, but it erroneously thinks one of the AI players has one territory and the game can't end. Really frustrating at the end of a long game.
Great Strategy Game
Update 5/2017: Should have updated this ages ago. The game is certainly enjoyable and playable. Doesn't appear you can flag to indicate you give up any longer, which would be nice, but otherwise it's works well. Since the game hasn't been updated in years, my iPhone is now giving me a warning that KDice will no longer work, unless updated, in future versions of iOS. Hoping the app is updated.
Update: Badly in need of an update. The game lags horribly, stalling between dice rolls making it nearly unplayable even on an iPhone 5S. Resetting rating to 1 star until issues resolved. Don't buy it at this point as it appears to be vaporware.
Don't listen to the 1 star ratings as they are from RTS kiddies who shouldn't be expected to enjoy a pure strategy level board like game.
If you enjoy games like Risk or Lux Delux you will love this game although it is IMO pricey when not on sale. At first I didn't like that you were unable to move your armies, apart from outright attacks, and that you are unable to select the territories that reinforcements are placed, but this all becomes a part of the strategy you must learn to use as an advantage to yourself or you will not get very far.
One suggestion, however, please include a volume setting seperate from the iPhone's ringer volume. I find myself lowering the volume substantially to play in some public place, then missing calls when I've forgotten to increase the ringer volume once I've stopped playing.
Overall, excellent strategy war game that you will return to again and again... replayability value is very high.
