Update: I made an error in the file dimension listings - NOW FIXED - so you can actually read the text. It is still pretty small, but my use of raster graphics will not look very good at another scale. Still, now that the size bug has been spotted, it is very much improved. Thanks for the feedback from those unfortunate folks who had to squint to see the fist posting. As for a high score list; I may just have to add one in. That's a great idea and one that was beyond me when I wrote the game but totally doable now. Then again, that might be a good idea to implement on Triple Dotzee...

Dotzee is a small presentation of a classic dice game that offers addictive strategic gameplay. This early design of mine is not very glitzy or particularly amazing, but it was a fun way for me to learn my first bits of Flash. I had designed a Breakout clone before this, but I want to redesign it and post the results later. The earliest versions of my Breakout clone are on my website if you are curious, but good things may come (here to NG) to those who wait. In the meantime, enjoy this little pet of a game. Would I design things differently now? Absolutely! I don't think I will do any more with this version of Dotzee, though. I'd like to design a Triple Dotzee someday, but I will do that from the ground-up and make it better all-around. One note: do not trust the odds tips in the info. panel. Those are basic odds expressions, but by no means do they describe the complex odds that govern dice rolls in Dotzee. I could write a book on that alone and I do not think that this tiny game needs a giant text inside of it. Enjoy.

Needs a highscore table and larger window.

As others have mentioned, you should really increase the window size.

Also, for this game, a high score table seems indispensable.

Interesting rules and I liked the honest mix of strategy and luck.

I got 247 on my first go and were there a high score table, I'd definitely return to this.

Please update!

It was okay

I think you should continue making flash however I find your game a little too small and it was hard for me to read the instructions. It is pretty addictive, so my suggestion would be to go with making a new & improved version of Dotzee, or a fun, similar game, or Triple Dotzee as you mentioned in your comments.
I really think that if you spend some more time making flash, it will be much better and get much better reviews or ratings.
