    Best Platform Games of 2021

    Platform games like Super Mario are super fun on video game consoles. But which reigns supreme on a mobile phone? Here's the Best for Your Buck.

  • Such an awesome game never get bored Oct 9, 2019

    I like dead cells. I’ve played on Switch and I just had to buy a mobile one too. The game structure is designed so that you never get enough of it because you can never be strong enough with max hp. Every time you die, you start over with 100 hp lol. I personally think those games that let you master and hit max hp always get me bored out since it gives a feeling that I’ve already hit the top. This game doesn’t let you feel that way and is always challenging to survive. But it’s definitely doable. I’m not really that good at controls in general but I’m totally okay with playing this game. Plus, so far I’ve been perfectly fine with the controls on mobile version of this game. It’s totally worth the money and time. It’s very well designed, balanced, reasonable difficulty, and there are many surprises and loots that are hidden and many many possibilities of new paths in the game. To be able to play such well developed game at this price is a bargain! One thing that disappointed me is that while I was able to play with different languages on Switch, I could not play the mobile version with different language setting. I wish they’d add this feature if possible. Other than that, no problem with the game!

    Works great with an Xbox controller. - Biggest gripe is the controls. Devs, could we please get shape (round button, square button) and transparency customizations? Also the ability to move to control stick and/or set it to a D-Pad configuration. I find myself doing an accidental ground dive far too often. It might be nice to have the option to set that ability to, say, a triple jump press. I feel like many improvements can be made, so I hope the community feedback is considered.

    At first I was skeptical, as I thought the game was originally intended for PC, so I thought it was off bounds for me, or that it would be a cheap rework with in app payments. But yet, I find it sitting there in the recommendation section, and I just had to try it. For those wondering, it’s a one time payment. You pay once for the game, and you get the game. Plain and simple, the way games should be sold. I just want the developer to know, if you put in an optional donation function, I don’t doubt people will thank you and your team for your flexibility! Random generation for new life’s is incredible, I truly feel as if I’m trapped in repeat, but yet it never gets old. First time was expectingly clumsy. I stumbled along, and got killed by spikes. I got re... globulated? And I found a fire Molotov like throwable. I was doing pretty well! Then I found an amulet that made it so when you did your down smashing attack the ground you landed on gets engulfed in flames. I was cruising along, but then my lack of skill is what got me killed. I’ve found that restarting with the default weapons, I’ve improved. I’m taking less and less damage each run, and it feels really good to know that’s me, and not some boost.

    What a pleasant surprise on mobile with a dual sense controller and a framerate @120 fps on S20+ I was blown away by the quality and addictive nature of this game. Running on my Galaxy 20 plus I can hit 120 fps with the framerate removed.Graphically, the game is on par with the console release. After each death, instead of quiting in frustration I kept going just to increase my permanent stat boost. The games sense of humor keeps things pretty light hearted. Controller support is spot on.

    Great game, well worth the price, addictive. Not unbearably hard, actually pretty easy to get into but I feel that it’s going to probably be hard to master. It is challenging but fair. Every time I lose I know it’s my own inadequacies at playing the game and I want to hop right back in for another run. The way the game is designed makes it very easy to do so: you are expected to die a lot and the game doesn’t punish you for doing so. Every run is a blank slate and at least partially randomized each time. That said there are some things that carry over across multiple runs and you sort of unlock more and more of those so between that and your own growing skill you get the sense that you’re getting a bit further each time. Controls can be a bit awkward given the small size of the screen. I think though that that is equal parts the inherent downside of the platform (small touch screens) and a mix of both my own unfamiliarity with the controls and me not quite deciding yet what the best configuration is for me (you can move around the control icons).

    My updated review after the update... Fixed crashes. The game feels more fluid... THANK YOU DEVELOPERS FOR LISTENING TO US PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND WE WILL KEEP COMING BACK TO ENJOY MORE OF YOUR CREATIONS. PREVIOUS: Crashes. Loving and enjoying every single minute of the game. But it still crashes on my Samsung s10. Already spent enough money including the DLC. Please fix this... Properly this time... I love this game and want to love it more once it stops crashing and will do 5 stars...

    I really enjoy dead cells and find it really fun and addicting. Although I sometimes get angry when I die and lose all my progress it really isn’t that bad. In response to all the people getting angry and giving bad reviews because you restart every time you die. I mean did you even read the app’s description? I would think you would actually spend some time researching a game before just getting it and being mad because you didn’t do any research on the game before hand. You’re supposed to die and restart that’s how the game works. Although I do admit when you’re finally at the hand of the king with 1 boss cell and realize that there isn’t any healing station and you’ve spent all your potions in the last area it does get quite frustrating when you die and have to start over again. But the game’s about skill if you’re good at the game you can get through the areas easily and get to the point where you died with better loot and items. Overall I really enjoyed Dead Cells.

    It's really good, one of if not the best PC to android game port. Plays really well on touch controls. Had some random crashes and loading screen freezes but all that has been fixed with the new update, no bugs or crashes encountered at all since then. As for the game itself, it's one the best and most fun games I've ever played with insane replayability. An absolute must buy.

    I was enjoying Dead Cells, but then I hit the “Roguelike” wall of having to play the same level over and over. If I bought this on my PS4, I probably would have given up on it. But since it was on my phone, I gave it another shot on my commute. Eventually, the Metroidvania elements kicked in - unlocking different weapons and finding different areas - and the game became more interesting. Even the aspect of not being able to choose your initial weapon keeps the game interesting. So often, I’m like “Ugh, I didn’t get what I wanted” only to find that the weapon I got has some pretty cool features. Another evil feature is the cursed treasure boxes. I avoided them at first. Why would I risk an insta-kill and have to start over just to get some random weapons/money? But now it’s all about the odds - do the weapons I have give me a better chance of not being hit before I can kill ten enemies? So even though I’m not the strongest gamer, I’m having fun doing the same thing over and over.

    Quite possibly the best game on the play store and one of the very best video games of all time. Stunning graphics and music, tight controls and incredible longevity, especially with the dlc packs, which are well worth paying extra for. This game manages to finely balance difficulty with fun to create an exceptionally addictive experience. Bought it when it first came out and it's only gotten better and better. Only downside is that it makes almost every other game seem lackluster by comparison.

  • Best game ever Jan 25, 2020

    By Monstar9623
    Maybe I’m biased, but this game is amazing, I played it on my consoles, but when I found out that this game was on mobile, I got so excited. If you played this game on the console, the mobile version can be a little eh, especially if you aren’t used to playing with a touch screen (yet its still fun to play, still worth the money) BUUUUUUUUUUT if you are upgraded to ios 13, just connect your controller to your device. Easy and simple. If you have an ipad, it’s even better. SO MUCH BETTER. Especially on the 12in. This game is 10/10, never boring, and challenging. Also if your devices are connected to the same account, you can shift your progress on your devices. For example, I’ll play a little on my phone, and if I want to go on my ipad, it saves where I quit. (This game saves your progress, but if you die, you start completely over, but if you quit during a game, it saves where you left over. Just to make things clear) For new people to this game, this game is DEFINITELY worth the money, you got to have a little patience. AND It’s a one down payment. You don’t have to pay anything extra in the game. This game isn’t something you’ll blow through in a day, it’s an actual good lengthy game. I rage quit a bit in games, but I can actually enjoy this one, this has progression. If I could, I could play this game for hours. This my addiction. I hope you can give this game a chance, it’s an amazing game, and the artwork is beautiful. This game deserves more love.

    At the time of me writing this, the game has officially been fixed. I waited for a week after the update to fix itself and the game is now playable. But if you're a long time player that has played this game for amount of time, you need to clear your caches in the Google play store settings. Personally I think the developers should fix this so that long players could come back in peace while playing. As a long time player myself, I will update this review to 5 stars once fix. Thank you.
  • One of my favorite mobile games Sep 1, 2021

    By John R Boyd
    Don’t have a lot of games I can scratch my neck in anticipation to play on the phone like I do console or pc games, this is definitely the challenge and fun I’ve been looking for in a mobile game for a while. I kind of a souls like game where you get a lot of progress and if you die, you lose nearly all of that, but instead of leveling up your stats like an rpg, you invest your “dead cells” in other words souls into things that’ll help you in the long run such as instead of dying and losing all of your coins and starting out with nothing, you can save up to 3000 or 6000 coins which can be useful later, or even start out with a little better something if you want your early game to go faster and easier. I love this game, would recommend it for people who wants more than a free mobile game with pop up ads and simple gameplay that people made from unity in 2 weeks or something.

    Works great with an Xbox controller. - Biggest gripe is the controls. Devs, could we please get shape (round button, square button) and transparency customizations? Also the ability to move to control stick and/or set it to a D-Pad configuration. I find myself doing an accidental ground dive far too often. It might be nice to have the option to set that ability to, say, a triple jump press. I feel like many improvements can be made, so I hope the community feedback is considered.
