The perfect game, fighting in 2D, slashing stuff and discovering the unknown secrets of those scorched lands filled with different monsters that along your way keeps get stronger.

The best thing is the weapons, tons and tons of different kinds and they got each different special skills, I played 2 hours straight and it felt like 1 minute, never been so excited on that simple gameplay.

Never gets old, and it only gets harder, yet more rewarding.

It’s an experience full of surprises and curiosities that will undoubtedly kill you for trying to uncover its secrets. It’s a prime example of taking a handful of quality ingredients and conjuring something up that’s nothing less than exquisite. This isn’t just a Roguevania with Souls-like elements clasping it together. Dead Cells is a modern-day classic that absorbs the knowledge and spirit of the games that originally coined the terminologies in the first place.

Speaking of homes, we did not even touch on the performance of Dead Cells on the Nintendo Switch. After playing it on both PC and the Switch, I have to say that the Switch is my preferred platform for it. Maybe it’s all of those years playing Metroid Fusion on a handheld unit or kicking back with Castlevania games. Whatever the case is, Dead Cells couldn’t be more at home on the Switch, whether on the go as a handheld or in the comfort of your living room.

In the lineage of the indie roguelite revival, Dead Cells might be the new zenith. Not since Spelunky have I been so completely taken by the play and craftsmanship of this style of game. Every run is engrossing and fun and when I die, the only thought rushing through my brain is to start over and try again, pushing as far past my previous run as I can.
