Dead Cells for iOS is on Sale for $4, Its Lowest Price Ever

[August 25th, 2020]: For the first time since being ported to iOS a year ago (almost to the day!), you can get the popular Dead Cells mobile game at half its usual price, making it just $4. There’s never been a better time to try out this fast-paced action-platformer, so get on it while the gettin’s good!

With merciless try-die-repeat action and lush pixel art visuals — not to mention a fantastic soundtrack — this “roguevania” style game is one where dying is not only inevitable, but a fundamental part of the experience. Every time you die, you lose all unspent “cells” you’ve collected and have to start over at square one, EXCEPT for any permanent weapon/skill upgrades and/or new areas you managed to unlock that will help you on future runs.

The game starts off almost impossibly difficult, but by the end you’ll have figured out enemies’ patterns and set up your build well enough to exhiliratingly reach the endgame and finally defeat the big bad 😎

One thing I like is that there’s a lot of flexibility in how you can navigate the castle to reach the end. You can explore every nook and cranny on one playthrough, then rush through the shortest possible path the next. There’s no one way to do it.

At this point, why are you still reading these words?? Go buy the game and experience it for yourself! If you’ve got an MFi-certified controller to play with (I’m partial to the DualShock 4 myself), then all the better.
