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 that will require you to master frantic 2D combat with a wide variety of weapons and skills against merciless minions and boss.

Kill. Die. Learn. Repeat.

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?

Practice Makes Perfect - Test your skills in the Training Room before you set out on your path with the new World Map

Ready for a leap of faith?

Best game I’ve played on iOS

It’s amazing, challenging, interesting, fun, and has a nice sense of humor if you only look for it. I’m not kidding when I say it’s literally the best game I’ve played on iOS, and I keep wanting more. I bought some of the dlc and am only a little bit of the way through, it feels like, but I plan on getting the rest once I’ve had my fill of the base game content.

Many people talk about the controls being an issue and I don’t think it’s that bad. I get the occasional misclick, but it doesn’t affect too much for me right now. I should say that I haven’t played it on other platforms though, so it may be hard to adjust if you played it previously not on iOS. What I do wish was better, though, was the stability. I’m playing on an iPhone 13 Pro Max, so far from obsolete, and I’ve run into memory problems and crashes at least a few times. It’s not keeping me from getting back on, but it’s really frustrating when I’m going through a run, doing pretty well, getting some good loot, am getting closer to the end of the level and ready to invest my cells and then - boom, game crashes and I can only go back to the previous save, basically the beginning of the level again. It’s again not much wasted time, but it adds enough frustration that it really takes away from what is honestly a masterpiece.

This game keeps on giving, and I’m not talking about how it has more content after you beat the game, but it does that exceptionally well too. I keep coming back to this game, switching from Xbox to laptop to the app on my phone now because they keep releasing new content that completely changes to feel of the game (in the best way possible). The foundation for this game is so solid I’m sure an entire world could be built with this gameplay, not just an island this game’s setting is using, which is why I’m sad to hear the DLC in 2022 is the last they plan on doing. I’m sure their next project will be amazing as well, but I want Deadcells to keep living and growing. It knows exactly what it is, and it has mastered itself in the way most games can barely dream of, let alone come close to. I love this game, for its art style, the music, the gameplay, the story, the ingenuity, and most of all, raw uniqueness, especially because it’s a direct inspiration from all the beloved games that have come before and after. I’m in love with the gameplay provided by the last DLC and more so by the crossover content. The newest weapons are an absolute joy, and I never thought my favorite weapon in a game would be a bone, but like I said before, Deadcells does it right.

Such an awesome game never get bored

I like dead cells. I’ve played on Switch and I just had to buy a mobile one too. The game structure is designed so that you never get enough of it because you can never be strong enough with max hp. Every time you die, you start over with 100 hp lol. I personally think those games that let you master and hit max hp always get me bored out since it gives a feeling that I’ve already hit the top. This game doesn’t let you feel that way and is always challenging to survive. But it’s definitely doable. I’m not really that good at controls in general but I’m totally okay with playing this game. Plus, so far I’ve been perfectly fine with the controls on mobile version of this game. It’s totally worth the money and time. It’s very well designed, balanced, reasonable difficulty, and there are many surprises and loots that are hidden and many many possibilities of new paths in the game. To be able to play such well developed game at this price is a bargain! One thing that disappointed me is that while I was able to play with different languages on Switch, I could not play the mobile version with different language setting. I wish they’d add this feature if possible. Other than that, no problem with the game!
