Dead Cells is a critically acclaimed action-platformer video game developed and published by Motion Twin. It was released for Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on August 7th 2018. The game has since been ported to iOS devices as well.
The player controls an undead prisoner who must traverse through a castle while fighting enemies with various weapons they find along the way. As the player progresses through each level of the castle they gain experience points which can be used to unlock new abilities or upgrade existing ones such as health regeneration or increased damage output from their weapons. Enemies defeated also drop cells that can be collected in order to purchase items at shops located throughout the levels.
The gameplay of Dead Cells consists of procedurally generated levels where players are encouraged to explore every nook and cranny in search of secrets and powerups that will help them progress further into the game’s world; death is permanent however so if you die during your playthrough then all progress made up until that point will be lost forever! This makes it important for players to plan out their strategies carefully before making any major moves within a given area – otherwise they may end up finding themselves back at square one again!
Overall Dead Cells offers an incredibly engaging gaming experience with its unique blend of roguelike elements combined with classic platforming mechanics; this ensures no two playthroughs are ever exactly alike meaning there’s always something new waiting around every corner just begging for discovery!
