Dead Cells is a brilliant “roguevania” title and one of the best action platformers on iOS. Players take on the role of a “failed alchemic experiment” that must master frantic 2D combat skills and a wide variety of weapons in order to take down the minions in an ever-changing castle environment. Having sat between $8 and $9 on the App Store since back in November 2019, you can now download this indie gem for $5.99. This is the first notable discount on the iOS/Apple TV version and a perfect opportunity to add it to your mobile gaming library. Permadeath, nonlinear progression, MFi controller support, multiple control schemes, and more round out the experience here. Rated 4+ stars from over 3,400 Amazon customers.
