About this game

Death is not the end.

Play as a failed alchemic experiment and explore the sprawling, ever-changing castle to find out what happened on this gloomy island…! That is, assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers.

Dead Cells is a roguevania action platformer from Motion Twin that will require you to master frantic 2D combat with a wide variety of weapons and skills against merciless minions and boss.

First available on PC and consoles, the indie hit Dead Cells is now slaying foes on mobile!

Main Features

• Roguevania: The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath

• Frantic and Dynamic 2D Action: Learn your enemies’ patterns to stay alive, or prepare to be sent back to your cell before you can say “baguette”

• Nonlinear Progression: Unlock new levels with every death, opt for the path that suits your current build, your playstyle or just your mood. Surely, the ramparts can’t be as bad the sewers, right?

• Play at your own pace: Will you explore every nook and cranny of the castle, or rush to the end?

This is a really good roguelike, it starts off as being kind of easy, but still semi-difficult, but as you beat the game, each difficulty requires exponentially more skill. The mobile version has a few small drawbacks- it is slightly behind the PC version in content. There is also an annoying glitch with the map where sometimes it becomes intangible and you have to exit it in order to use it again. I am currently having major issues with joining the game, so hopefully that is fixed soon.

Honestly I truly like the game. It's hella fun and takes some unique skill. Only problem keeping it from being a perfect 5 for me is the fact that it crashes almost ALL THE TIME. Plus there's no way to see why. I just figure if you paid money for the game you should be able to get the best most optimal experience but it's ok the game is still a solid 9 out of 10 when it does work though

This is an amazing game that I love to play, back in school I would play all the time with an Xbox controller. I recently downloaded it again to play with my new PS5 controller while on the go. It's unplayable, I'm not sure how to fix it or if it'd a bug but O is supposed to be back, but it's the interact button and X has no input. Please help or fix, I wanna play this game again!!!
