LambdaMu Games, the developer behind adorable city-builder Pixel People, has decided to reboot 2011's Dice Soccer in the form of iOS "casual strategy" game Dice Soccer League.
What exactly is a "casual strategy" game, you wonder? LambdaMu explains: "In Dice Soccer League, players get to build their dream team of soccer characters, and use them to win matches by scoring as many goals as possible. Once on the field, characters roll unique 6-sided dice and use special soccer skills to gain possession of the ball. The team that rolls the highest total on the field gets control of play, and kicks its way to an epic showdown between striker and goalkeeper!"
The free-to-play game will debut this Summer with both single- and multiplayer modes, including a 75-match Campaign. LambaMu also mentions a "unique hybrid system" which combines online and offline play, though the exact specifics of this feature are currently unclear.
Singapore – June 24th 2014 - LambdaMu Games, makers of 2013's hit game Pixel People, announces a new game titled "Dice Soccer League". Set to launch later this summer, Dice Soccer League is a reboot of the studio's critically acclaimed 2011 title Dice Soccer. This new iteration preserves the spirit and essence of the original card-collecting dice-rolling soccer mashup, but takes the graphics and gameplay to an all-new level.
In Dice Soccer League, players get to build their dream team of soccer characters, and use them to win matches by scoring as many goals as possible. Once on the field, characters roll unique 6-sided dice and use special soccer skills to gain possession of the ball. The team that rolls the highest total on the field gets control of play, and kicks its way to an epic showdown between striker and goalkeeper!
"As Manager of a Dice Soccer League team, finding the right character with the right dice sides is key to victory. Under the certain conditions and in the presence of the suitable team mates, characters can unleash zany yet powerfuls skills to change the fate of a match, thereby ensuring that the biggest dice on the field doesn't always win" says Ivan Loo, CEO of LambdaMu Games. "This aspect of the game adds an amazing level of strategy and depth to what is otherwise a very casual and accessible experience!"
Creating a team from the vast selection of crazy characters is half the fun of Dice Soccer, complimented by the ecstasy of seeing how they actually fare on the field. Dice Soccer League ships with potentially endless hours of immersive gameplay across 4 different game modes:
Campaign - 75 matches against carefully designed AI opposition, over several seasons of play.
Tournament - A weekly battle for supermacy, against other players, from across the globe.
Arena - The ultimate test of your team's endurance, versus formidable opponents from around the world. The longer you last, the better the rewards!
Casual - Challenge your friends' or random strangers' team for the most imporant prize of them all - bragging rights!
Dice Soccer League will be free to play and aims to bring a unique and charming blend of card collecting, strategy, and sports gaming to iOS devices. Dice Soccer League also uses a unique hybrid system allowing for seamless online and offline play, allowing you to live, breathe, and roll with your team, no matter where you may be.
