A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Match or Die is a relaxing match-3 game where you roll a dice instead of swapping tiles. Pick the dice you want to roll and replace it with one of the neighbours dice. If you fail to make any match, you lose a shield,  or worst ... DIE.

By Rolling the 4, the player might replace it by one of its neighbour, a 6 a 5 or a 3. The 6 has 50% chance to replace the 4 because there is two 6.

Pick carefully the dice you want to roll by checking which one have a higher chance to make a match.

Too easy? Press [3] on the title screen to switch the hard mode or [1] to make it even chiller.

Scoring when dice are matched, the game adds their dots to the score. A dice of 6 is worth 6 points, 5 is worth 5 points, etc. There is no multiplier or combo system.


Just use your mouse to pick the dice you want to roll, that's it!
