Dead CellsDead Cells is a roguelike Metroidvania soulsborne sidescroller. The main mechanics of the game is to make our way through procedurally generated dungeons, killing enemies and collecting cells along the way.
Cells are used to buy permanent upgrades for our warrior. If we die before reaching the end of a stage, we must start all over with only the chosen upgrades intact. Combined with the large range of available weaponry, this creates a fun and challenging gameplay experience full of fast-paced combat. The risk of death and loss of the coveted cells creatures truly adrenaline-rushing gameplay moments.
The amazing pixel art-style is well-designed and the fluid movement and animations perfectly compliment the brutal combat.
Dead Cells is a $8.99 premium game with a single iAP for a DLC pack. Due to the sheer amount of gameplay value, the game is well worth the price. Especially if you are a fan of metroidvania souls-like games.
UPDATE REGARDING DLC: Playdigious has done a great job with its first paid DLC called "The Bad Seed". This expansion adds three new biomes, accessed in the early game as an optional route after Prisoners Quarters, the first game area. The core gameplay remains the same, but in addition to the three new well-detailed environments, the expansion also adds new weapons, abilities, enemies, and a boss.
At $3.99, the "The Bad Seed" DLC is a great addition to the base game and the frequent free content updates that give the game a long lifespan.
