Note, only keyboard and mouse are supported.


Note 2, this is a version made for Newgrounds, adding some fixes, achievements and high-scores.

To play the original jam release, play it here on itch.io.


EXPLOSIVE DICE-A-RRHEA is a game made in 48 hours

for the GameMaker's Toolkit Game Jam 2022!

The theme for it was "Roll of the Dice". 


Shoot explosive dices with your Dice Shooter at enemies and get to the end! There are 10 levels in total.   


The dice's rolled number is represented on top in the middle as a big number. The damage taken on the enemies will be dependent on what number you "rolled" (for example if you rolled a 6, that would cause the highest damage).

By the way, you only get one life, which means if you're out of health, that means game over!

Limited ammo is also a thing so if you run out of it, the only thing you can do is press backspace to do a selfkill and try again.


Now go get 'em!

I like the EE-like controls.

I'm not sure why, but the title screen is just a black screen with the words "trial version" at the lower right, in white, but literally everything else is just the color black.

I know just clicking around randomly or pressing random buttons got me into the game one time but I haven't seemed to be able to get in again.

The one time the game was able to start it was fine. But gotta figure out why your title screen is doing like it's doing. Very inconvenient.

Medals dont work for me. Otherwise its fine. w for jump would indeed be better.

One major suggestion: W for jumping. Space is ridiculously inconvenient.

hatoving responds:

Sure!
