When the wave of high-intensity summer action games starts to slow, you may want to cool down with a nice, peaceful puzzle game to relax into the coming Fall season. Enter Sokodice, a new puzzle game from Canadian indie studio The Socially Awkward.
Those who are familiar with the history of puzzle games may remember a certain title from ages pats: Sokoban, the Japanese puzzle game that involved players pushing crates into the correct spots to beat the level.
Sokodice is heavily inspired by Sokoban, if you could not tell by the name. In Sokodice, players are presented with a maze-like levels with several different dice lying around. Certain tiles around the level have numbers on them, and players must roll the dice on top of these tiles with the matching number facing up.
Sokodice captures the same spirit and feel of Sokoban but adds its own twist on the formula, with players needing to keep track of the different numbers and spots to move the dice.
Sokodice also features 100+ levels with ten different worlds. Each world has its own gimmick that you need to incorporate into your strategy, and sometimes even your dice will special properties to them.
Sokodice has enough mechanics and unique tricks to keep players on their toes, but it never becomes pressure as there are no time limits. Take your time, relax, and make your move carefully. The dice awaits!
Sokoban is coming to the iOS App Store on September 17, 2020 for 2.99 USD.
