Play it again or for the first time.
Critically acclaimed indie darling Dead Cells is on pretty well every platform available and now it’s also available to play on your Galaxy or your Chromebook or any other Android device.
The maze-crawling platformer with permadeath is known for its difficulty and inventive blending of procedurally created maps paired with created, known sections. It’s an instantly satisfying game for those willing to invest in understanding its systems and are interested in the unraveling of the game’s narrative through the slow, but steady, drip-feed of information it provides.
We’ve played it both on consoles and on the iOS platform previously. We found the iOS version was constantly a few updates beyond its console brethren but welcomed its auto-hit mode of play. It felt comfortable for play on the iPad; on the smaller devices we played it on, we took advantage of the various ways we can modify the virtual controls. Physical controllers can be used with the iOS version though we never took advantage of this.
In basically all respects this seems to be the case for the Android port: auto-hit is there, custom controls, and a bargain price compared to console are all reporting for duty. That you can play this on a Chromebook has to be a selling feature for those with limited computing compared to the Steam release.
Dead Cells is now available on the Google Play Store with an introductory pricing discount of 10%.
