One of the best games of 2018, without a doubt, was 'Dead Cells'. Developed by Motion Twins and originally released for PCs and consoles, it offers us a game of fighting, dungeons and evolution combined with a playability of the most demanding. And if it is demanding (if not complicated) on computers and consoles, let's not talk about the version for iOS that has just landed on the App Store.
'Dead Cells' is part of the genre roguelike, although Motion Twins prefers to say that it is a roguevania, that is, a mixture between roguelike Y metroidvania. Roguelike, because it is a dungeon game with permanent death. Metroidvania, because the world to explore is huge (and constantly changing) and is unlocked by killing, getting objects and leveling up. It is most interesting and you can get it for 8.99 euros.
Prepare the nerves and arm yourself with patience
Have you played 'Dark Souls'? If the answer is "yes", you will know that defeating enemies is not exactly easy. Everyone has their attack patterns that you must know perfectly to move, dodge and attack when necessary. 'Dead Cells' is exactly the same but with a more interesting addition: if you die, you start over, from scratch and on a more or less different map.
We say "more or less" because each room is handmade, so when we die these rooms are relocated in different locations that we will have to find again. Come on, you won't do two equal paths. Each region of the island we are in has its own monsters and characteristics, so each game is, in essence, different.
If you die, start from the beginning
As we advance and level up we can unlock objects and abilities that will be permanent, but the challenge will remain equally challenging. To say that getting to the controls can be a bit complicated, because you will have to combine moving forward, jumping, moving, attacking and dodging in a game that does not stop requiring you to be very attentive. From the settings you can activate an auto attack mode and, if you wish, you can connect an MFi controller.
'Dead Cells' hooks and is very replayable. You have more than 50 weapons and several spells at your disposal, so you can play as many times as you want and opt for different strategies. As we said before, it has a price of 8.99 euros on the App Store and it lacks microtransactions or announcements. About the Android version, it is known that it will arrive at some point but there is still no specific date.
