Edit
Dead Cells puts you in control of a failed alchemic experiment trying to figure out what's happening on a sprawling, ever-changing and seemingly cursed Island. Tough but fair combat, responsive controls, challenging foes, permadeath and of course, the emergency panic roll to get you out of trouble, make for a demanding, visceral and cathartic action game. Interconnected levels and progressive unlocking of access to the island provides you with a real incentive to explore your surroundings. Add in a degree of evolution for your character and permanent weapon upgrades. At the end of the day though, it’s YOUR skills as a player that matter most! Roguelites are about constantly getting better, until what was an insurmountable obstacle becomes a walk in the park. Unforgiving combat wed to the absence of any kind of safety net makes for an adrenalin pumping ride each and every run and unrivaled replayability.

Review from Steam

Dead cells is the type of game that you first pirate it then get blown away by how amazing the game is and actually buy it on steam, I love this damn game and a lot of people seem to agree with me.

Review from Steam

Got this for the steam deck, it works flawlessly and doesn't tax the battery too much at all either.
Such a fun game, you need to get through the first learning curve but the cycle time getting back into the action is quick. I love how many of the weapons have clear conditions on causing critical hits, unlike your traditional x% chance to cause a critical many weapons in Dead Cells will trigger 100% of the time if you satisfy the conditions they call for.
So for example you'll have a bow that'll crit at long range, another at short range, other weapons might crit when the enemy is burning.
This makes for some wonderfully imaginative playstyles, and given the HUGE array of weapons keeps the game fresh.
The only aspect which I wish was clearer at the start and took me a bit to pickup is the upgrade system, you essentially have 3 skills, Red, Green and Blue which relate to Brutality, Survival and Tactics; what they're called isn't important but the game doesn't make it super clear how importing stacking one of these is, once you realise that and start doing it, you get further and are more successful in your runs.
Is one of those games which "changes when you complete it" and finishing the game is only the start. The game is initially very hard, but also completely fair.
100% recommend, especially if you have a steam deck.
