“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,

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.

This game is awesome

I love this game a lot and it’s style is great. The controls are simple and the gameplay is easy to understand. The art style is epic and very interesting. The whole game as is is very fun and enjoyable. I do have some suggestions that I think could make it much better though. Just having your avatar’s sprite moving around the room as you play would give more of a sense of location and be a bit more interesting. Also having more background pictures that are different for each room when you battle just to make it more immersive, along with images of the monsters you’re fighting and not just the tiny sprites next to their health bar. Also adding power ups and usable items like bombs or shields or maybe temporary weapon upgrades would help with making the game a little more involving so it actually takes a little strategy to play. These ideas I think are simple, but I really think they would make the game just a bit more interesting and immersive

I’m sorry developer for the slightly negative review about the ad reward for beating the boss level. You’ve been very persistent with your reasoning of these ads and I get it now. I’ve seen worse amount of ads that are forced on mobile users. My issue from the beginning was that the ads didn’t start until I was further into the game and after beating a handful of bosses. This is a great game and I love the random encounters that give player extra crates, corpses, and (my fav) machine gun guy that blasts through the enemies and is almost a guaranteed win.

Needs a lot of work

I like the idea of this game, but the execution is really lacking. The fact that you cannot replay previous levels to get xp and are forced to sit and waste ammunition on levels that are too difficult to pass is extremely poor game design. It would also be nice to be able to complete past levels that may not have gotten 100% completion.
It’s far too quiet, even at max volume I can barely hear a thing. I’ve read previous reviews, and it seems this problem has been noted, but nothing has been done about it. That’s highly problematic to me when a developer knows of an issue and does not fix it.
The characters and level design are alright, and are really the only reason I open this game. I will probably delete it soon to free up space, however, as it’s just not worth the data as it is now.
Save the space on your phone for a game that’s actually worth your time and energy to play.
