There has been a comeback of the simple side-scrolling Metroid-style 2D platformer in recent years. Dead Cells is no exception to this rule. This beautiful and dark platformer was developed by Motion Twin and later released in 2018. Dead Cells is turning people back to the 2D gameplay of yesteryear. Originally it was only on mobile but the hype around the game pushed the developer team to port it to consoles.

Played from the 2D, side-scrolling perspective Dead Cells follows the tale of an unnamed protagonist named the Prisoner. Waking up with total amnesia the Prisoner discovers they can not die. Every time the Prisoner dies, they are sent back to the depths of the prison and must try again. Through trial and error, the Prisoner learns more about themselves, the prison, and most importantly how to escape.
