“9 \ 10 If you enjoy dark sci-fi themes and like a challenging RPG with some roguelike elements, then look no further than Dead Shell. ” Christine Chan,

“There is potential here, and I don’t regret buying this game.” Andrew Koziara,

Blaster-wielding mercenaries vs beasts from the labyrinth: who will win? You're commanding a die-hard assault squad. Destination: Plutonia, a settlement on a Doom-4 class planet. Shuttle cargo: a range of lethal weapons, from axes and chainsaws to blasters and BFGs. Anything might come in handy in Plutonia, the Federation's most remote colony.

Scientists, miners, guards – all sorts of civilian personnel worked there until recently. A week ago, the Center received a mayday signal from the settlement. Demonic roars and screams of terror filled the comm channel, and then it fell dead silent.

It's time to descend into the infernal abyss and show the demons who's the boss here. Fight your way through all the circles of hell to reach the very bottom. Look cosmic evil in the face and emerge victorious.

Editors’ Notes

From its ’80s-tinged soundtrack to every chunky pixel, Dead Shell packs the action of shooters like Doom into a deceptively cute dungeon-crawler. It’s a blast unleashing heck with an arsenal of gnarly weapons, and you’ll really feel trapped in a derelict space station where anything could be drooling around the next corner.

So close to a 5

I feel like if you combine the mechanics of the free one with this one you’d have a great game. Let this one have the leveling up and better chance of chests. Leave the respawn for the free version. Let this one have the explore mechanic to find more ammo, make it more rogue like!

Many thanks for your feedback and suggestions!!!

Nice Mashup

Although this game is described to be a rogue-like, I was disappointed that many of the elements like permadeath, steep difficulty increase, traps, and unique items do not appear. I enjoyed the awesome music, pixel art, and thematic mashups from other games. At the moment this is more like a strategic clicker than a rogue-like game.

Maybe you're right, Salazaar, but we're going to improve the game with a few elements more and we hope that you'll find it interesting :)
