Dead Cells, one of the hardest indies on the market right now, will soon turn your phone into a roguevania torture device.
Having already conquered the Nintendo Switch, developer Play Motion is bringing their immensely challenging indie sensation Dead Cells to mobile phones, starting with iOS first.
Other than a Summer release window, exact details are light. We expect the full indie to be pushed onto smartphones and tablets, complete with touchscreen controls and optional Bluetooth gamepad support. With permanent death, Dead Cells is already hard enough...I couldn't imagine playing it without a joystick or buttons.
There's rumors that Dead Cells could also pop up on Apple's new Apple Arcade all-you-can-play premium gaming service, but this probably won't happen for two reasons: it's not a platform exclusive like all Apple Arcade games are touted to be (Dead Cells is on a bunch of other platforms), and it'll probably jump onto Android for maximum exposure.
iOS users can sign up here for more updates once the game goes live. Check below for more information about Dead Cells:
Roguevania - The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath
Frantic and Dynamic 2D Action - Learn your enemies' patterns to stay alive, or prepare to be sent back to your cell before you can say "baguette"
Nonlinear Progression - Unlock new levels with every death, opt for the path that suits your current build, your playstyle or just your mood. Surely, the ramparts can't be as bad the sewers, right?
Play at your own pace - Will you explore every nook and cranny of the castle, or rush to the end?
Carefully redesigned for mobile with a revamped interface
Two game modes available - Original & Auto-Hit
Custom controls & More touch controls options available - Change the buttons' position and size to your liking, swipe to dodge...
MFi external controller support
Pay once to get the full Dead Cells experience! No ads, no F2P mechanics!
