very good


Very nice game :)


Fun game with nice graphics. I've played it a couple of times already and am really enjoying it


Wow! I _so_ dig the style of the graphics - really unique, and when I first saw the screenshots I wasn't sure they were from a C64! You've really used the palette asking with dithering well!

Question: Is it totally out of the question to please consider a native build of Dicing With Death for the Commodore 128? It doesn't have to have any extra features; just being able to load and run it from the C128's native mode would be really neat! Seeing how small the C128's games library is, it would really mean a ton to the C128 community and, on top of that, a great deal of goodwill. Crossing my fingers for a positive response! :)

I'll look into it.

Thank you very much for your quick reply, and for even considering a C128 port. Really hoping for the best!
