H2F Informationssysteme GmbH (say it three times fast) has recently released Dice-O-Mania [App Store] for the iPhone throught the iTunes App Store.
Dice-O-Mania is another "match-three-of-a-kind" puzzler, but with a few twists. Gameplay involves manipulating dice in a cube formation such that they eliminate, the goal being to eliminate dice faster than they are being regenerated. When there's no more empty space left, the game is over.
Dice-O-Mania can be played with 3x3, 4x4, or 5x5 dice cubes. As the YouTube video demonstrates, gameplay resembles that of Cubes [App Store], which we reviewed earlier, but Dice-O-Mania offers two modes of play: match colors or match dice-face number, the latter proving somehow more challenging. Unlike Cubes, rotation of the dice cube is handled via accelerometer rather than screen swipes. As well, Dice-O-Mania's starfield backdrop rotates along with the dice cube, adding a degree of 3D immerison beyond that offered by Cubes.
I found gameplay to be engaging and challenging and a good match for the iPhone's unique combination of touchscreen and accelerometer controls. Dice-O-Mania can be purchased for $4.99 through the App Store.
