If you don’t have a controller though, your mileage with it may vary. It’s a very challenging and complex game from the get-go, and the virtual controls don’t really do it any favours. It needs a total rework in the control department if it’s going to function as comfortably with just a touchscreen as it does on controller.
Again, there are plenty of great pieces to read on the ins and outs of what makes Dead Cells a great game. This mobile version is that exact game, but it’s a little harder to enjoy on this particular platform. So, unless the iOS version of the game is the only way you can play Dead Cells or you want to have yet another way to play it, I’m not sure why you’d get this version over the ones that came out last year.
Dead Cells is an amazing game, and anyone interested in rogue-lites would be well advised to give it a shot at their earlies convenience.
