Slice, Dice & Rice

Fighting 27 April 2017

A 2D fighting game set in an alternative reality based on how the ancient Japanese imagined afterlife. We can choose from a roster of eight characters, each of them has different appearance, weapons and special abilities. Additionally, they all have their unique stories which we discover during the game. The feature that distinguishes this game, developed by an indie studio called DojoGames, is the lack of a health bar. The gameplay is based on searching for openings in opponent's guard and dealing instant, lethal attacks. We can fake attacks, parry when there is need for that or perform quick dodges. The unique, dark and grim graphics are Slice, Dice & Rice's strong point. Another plus is that we can play in single player mode but we can also face another player, local or online.
