Dead Cells puts you in control of a failed alchemic experiment trying to figure out what's happening on a sprawling, ever-changing and seemingly cursed Island. Tough but fair combat, responsive controls, challenging foes, permadeath and of course, the emergency panic roll to get you out of trouble, make for a demanding, visceral and cathartic action game.

Experience a roguevania, mixing an interconnected world, branching paths and unlockable skills with the constant adrenaline-pumping threat of permadeath. No checkpoints. You either vanquish the final boss in one go, or you try again. However, you keep some of your progress for successive runs; new paths you’ve unlocked, access to new levels, mutations, abilities and weapons.

Speaking of weapons, Dead Cells features a plethora of ways to slay your enemies. A large variety of swords, bows and of course spells, but also whips, grenades and turrets, each one with its own unique twist. Plus, mutations and scrolls allow you to build and customize your character differently with each and every run.

At the end of the day though, it’s your skills as a player that matter most! Roguelites are about constantly sharpening your skills, until what was an insurmountable obstacle becomes a walk in the park. Patience, you’ll get better! … eventually.

Features:

  • Roguevania: The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath.

  • 2D Souls-lite Action: Tough but fair combat, the iconic dodge roll, more than 90 weapons and spells with unique gameplay… The unforgiving action wed to the absence of any kind of safety net makes for an adrenalin pumping ride each and every run.

  • Nonlinear Progression: Sewers, Ossuary or Ramparts? Once unlocked, special permanent abilities allow you to access new paths to reach your objective. Opt for the path that suits your current build, your play style, or just your mood.

  • Exploration: Secret rooms, hidden passages, charming landscapes. Take a moment to stroll the towers and breath in that fresh sea mist infused air.

Hhmm PS4 or Switch. As a fairly low-fi Metroidvania rogue-like which lends itself to short bursts and repeat playthroughs, it seems very well suited to the Switch. However as a massive trophy whore and general Playstation fanboy, I am drawn to the PS4 version.

If only there were a Vita version (RIP).
Switch version is on sale digitally with Nintendo sale. £17.99.

doesn't come with keyring and art booklet
Plays fantastically on Switch, wholeheartedly recommend! Heat!
Can I just add that the artbook is a joke , nice images but it's really crap .
Personaly I am not massively enjoying the game either (I loved games lik rouge legacy) way to repetitive and the upgrades quickly get verry slow so you feel that whole runs are not really getting you any progress whatsoever , and the bosses have so much going on that it's hard to know what's going on on the screen unlike other metroidvanias that have very clean bosses that you can more easily plan and work out their mooveset .
Still great offer tho so hot , but game wasn't for me

I know what you mean about trophies.

It's only recently I have changed my mindset to break away from going for achievements on decideding whether to go with Switch or Xbox. Tough habit to break. Giving up smoking was easier.
