You're a magical dice snail, on a mission to get revenge on the gnomes for not letting you eat their cabbages. Roll your shell to use six different abilities to attack, and try to kill as many gnomes as possible! (Be careful, they're dangerous!)

Nice elemental mechanic!
Though the dark power remains so little time that to even make use of it, you gotta put yourself at a lot of risk, so it is pretty useless.

Thank you! 😄 And thanks for the feedback! I agree that the different powers could be better balanced/tweaked haha. The time constraints definitely limited us on polishing that aspect. 😆
