Alright I know it's been out for a while, but I finally just started playing my copy of Dead Cells yesterday, like a year after buying it (dat backlog!) and oh my god I did not expect it to be this good!
I've only played 4 hours so far, so I guess I'll see how replayable it is once I've put in a lot more hours. But so far it feels like pretty much the ultimate 2D side scrolling action slashing game.
Love the procedural generation changes the play each time, the fighting is soooo fun and very skill based, love how you you gradually get better through both skill and permanent unlockables, the pixel graphics are gorgeous, the difficulty is fantastic hard but not frustrating and I find on each new run for the most part I get a little bit further.
I'm just a bit blown away by how good this game is. Haven't been this blown away by a game since Axiom Verge back in 2017, but I think I already like Dead Cells more. Anyone else care to join the love fest?
