What is Slice Dice and Rice?



Welcome to another hands-on with indie games. Today I will be talking about two fighting games. Slice Dice and Rice, a Bushido Blade-like indie fighting game. Slash The Power Battle reminisce of Guilty Gear and Street Fighter gameplay. I try out these fighting games and enjoy them. Slice Dice and Rice bring in one-hit kill mechanics. Dojo Games utilize oriental  back and white Japanese style. There is calligraphy stokes and shaded character design. Player’s could take control of 8 characters with weapon style. There are different games modes story, local versus, and dojo (training).  Slice Dice and Rice run into some problem in gameplay.

During battle, you don’t hit the opponent once but numerous times. That’s a minor issues and player’s could cripple each other. The game gives you hints and easy control scheme. In gameplay, characters have four methods of combat.  Each  characters have three attack light, heavy and medium. You have to timed your counters and weapon clashing. Slice Dice and Rice is a very artistic indie game with hand-drawn stages. It has grounded mechanics and flux design. Online multiplayer would be a nice touch. Slice Dice and Rice is available on Steam.

Slashers The Power Battle have 11 player about character with upcoming dlc. Each character have a different playstyles and moveset. In character select, you can choose your character super move like Street Fighter 3rd Strike.  Different fighting game mechanics parry, counter, power recovery (Guilty Gear) and many more.
