Can't Stop is a good one.

Pickomino is another candidate, although I've only played it once.

Maybe Escape: The Curse of the Temple?

#1 Don't underestimate the School Bus.

#2 Definitely look at Utopia Engine. It's not *really* push-your-luck, and it's solitaire, but it's a great dice game.

#3 Are you looking for a deeper/bigger PYL dice game or a game that has a large component of PYL dice in it?

#4 Trophy Buck is *slightly* deeper in that the more difficult Deer (Zombies) are worth more points.

But the best answer is to wait for Mars Attacks: The Dice Game. There's a demo video you can look at. It uses PYL dice as the motor for working towards larger goals. Everyone has access to all the goals, and some lend special powers. I am eagerly looking forward to this one - more game, more flavor.

Hunters of Arcfall

Daughter and I absolutely love this one. It's got the dice, the push your luck, and cards that impact gameplay without over complicating.

Hunters of Arcfall is, imo, the closest to what you at looking for.

My daughter and I have Zombie Dice and both expansions, and love it. But when we want a similar game with a bit more meat to it, it is Hunters all the way. The only issue is some cards are dark and hard to see icons, but it isn't that bad. The developer even sold me a copy since none were for sale on amazon at the time.
