Dead Cellsfor iOS



The original adventure comes to iOS

Dead Cells impressed players from its initial release, and now you’ll be pleased to see it come to iPhone. You can explore the dark and ever-changing castle on the island and master your skills in combat, object collection, and creation. If you don't make it to the safe zone before you die, your objects are lost.

Indie combat classic

Dead Cells is visually impressive. It’s a rogue-lite action game that entertains for hours.

If you are a fan of horror and the undead, then the Dead Cells concept will appeal to you. You can keep yourself entertained with exploration and battles, or continue for longer and put together blueprints and head back to the island.

To beat your enemies and race back to the safe zone, you'll need to hone your skills. The game is both challenging and fast-paced. The original music and graphics match this style, urging you to move quicker and adding to the dark and gloomy atmosphere. As tension builds while you progress, you'll find that gripping action is rampant in all parts. If you’re a casual gamer, this game may not be the right fit and it's worth checking out a softer title.

Regardless, there’s a real sense of achievement as you start to improve, which adds to the longevity and replayability of the game. This is important because you can jump back into the title and you count on finding new ways to play. Whether you’re in battle or exploring the castle, the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable, and the overall experience is optimal.

Although porting a console game to a touchscreen platform is tricky, Dead Cells doesn’t fail by any means. The only caveat is that the lack of precision in the touchscreen controls can affect some situations that require immediate action or reaction.

Where can you run this program?

iPhone users will need iOS 11.0 or above to run this app. It’s also available for Windows 7 and later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. On this platform, Dead Cells is the best option. Limbo, Super Mario Run, and Sonic are other titles that have some similar game mechanics.

Our take

Dead Cells fans will enjoy the chance to play this game wherever they go on their iPhone. Almost all of the stunning game aspects ported well to iOS, but the controls can let it down at crucial moments.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you want a horror-based, rogue-lite action game, this app is for you.
