For many, Dead Cells is one of the best games of recent years. This title is interesting because it has some characteristics that make it, well, infernal.
The difficulty is the strength of this game and as a lover of impossible challenges, I could not try it just as I did with the new Demon’s Souls. Anyway, I did, and here’s my review of Dead Cells!
Innovative and damned hard gameplay
First, I want to talk to you about the gameplay of Dead Cells. This game published by Motion Twin is a roguevania, a mixture of roguelike and Metroidvania. So, you have to expect frantic action, enemies to palate and you have to have reflexes ready. If you want to relax, well, try something else friend.
You will not have checkpoints where you can save, every death will be permanent. Besides, the difficulty will increase more and more, frustration will come to unimaginable levels. You will only be able to equip two weapons and unlock different skills. Coming to the end of the game, if you succeed, you will be satisfied with your build perfected in every detail.
Compared to classic Metroidvania games, here you’ll have to use your imagination to move on. For example, in the early stages of the game, you can defeat enemies using only melee weapons. However, as you advance you will need to develop a real attack strategy, using skills, bombs, remote weapons, spells, and much more.
If you’re not afraid to die and want to play an exciting title for several hours, Dead Cells is the one for you. A 2-D Dark Souls to discover!
Dead Cells: don’t just fight, explore with curiosity
Another thing that makes Dead Cells unique is exploration. In similar games, like Ori and the Blind Forest, exploration leads you to get better upgrades or weapons.
But on the contrary in this title, you will find some interesting side quests that you can complete. If you succeed in this, you can unlock alternative routes that will allow you to change the end of the story. I don’t want to spoil you but believe me, it’s worth replaying this game to find out all the endings. Through these gameplay mechanics, Dead Cells manages to be long-lived and pleasant despite its high level of difficulty.
Besides, there is no lack of secret areas, difficult to reach but incredibly profitable. The bonuses you can get in these hidden areas are exceptional, I suggest you explore them or at least try to do so!
You can’t miss the opportunity to play Dead Cells
This game is incredible, you have to try it, gamer’s word. Plus, I’m sure you’ll also be able to appreciate its graphics, with crazy settings and beautiful colors. Take a look at the graphic details as you enjoy the game trailer.
If you want to save on buying the game, I recommend you get it in our store. It is available at a discounted price. You can also express your opinion on the game. Let me know if you found it difficult or if it was not so complicated for you.
In any case, Dead Cells is not a game for everyone, only those who have more patience can complete it and get the victory!
