About this game

Get ready for our new free update on November 29th and save up to 50%!

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?

I really enjoy Dead Cells a lot :) I usually play it in class or for fun or when I'm trying to get to the next Boss Cell. I don't really see that many problems with it but after the update, but when you load into the game the background is kinda like..Fogged in a way? It doesn't bother me all that much, but there's that. Overall this game is awesome! The gameplay is pretty smooth 'n stuff. But I do wish the buttons were a bit bigger as my sausage fingers costed me some good runs.

One of the best games available on Play Pass. Frustrating beyond belief. Amazing controller support as well! My only issue is that my phone's punch-hole front camera is in the middle of the items UI in lower left corner, so I've got a black circle in the middle of the UI. Not sure if there is a way to adjust that on my end or not. Pixel 4a5g | Razer Kishi V1 USB C Controller Edit: lost 26 runs of data due to sync issue. As of 11/29/22 I am logged back into Play Games, and my acct is syncing.

I had to reinstall after a null access issue to fix it. The only consistent complaint is the layout customization options are awful. Especially with the D-pad customization limitations. Just the ability to simply customize the position of the d-pad with floating pad off would make a huge difference.
