Play Dead Cells on PC

Developed by Motion Twin, Dead Cells has been a huge success on the PC platform and has won numerous awards. Winning BAFTA and Golden Joystick awards, this game soon became one of the best-selling indie games on the market. Therefore, adaptation to other platforms was inevitable.


The iOS and Android adaptation of Dead Cells is undertaken by Playdigious, which we know from many games such as Evoland II, Chicken Jump, and Mini Metro. The mobile version of Dead Cells is released in June 2020 and quickly became one of the most popular games on mobile platforms.


Dead Cells is an action-platform game but it is also inspired by the Metroidvania series. In other words, it uses “roguevania” mechanics: In each game, levels are randomly created and no player plays the same level. It is possible to get a different experience every time you launch Dead Cells.


This is a challenging 2D platform game: You need to use the right build and have lightning-fast reflexes to defeat your enemies. When you die, you can unlock new levels. In other words, you sometimes have to die to progress! The mobile version of Dead Cells has two modes, Original and Auto Hit, and you can get easier gameplay by choosing the latter. But don’t think this will be an easy experience: Dead Cells is a game designed to challenge you!

The mobile adaptation of Dead Cells is very successful and offers all the features of the PC version. But there is a problem: This is a game where you have to react very quickly and the controls of the mobile version are not suitable for this.

Playing Dead Cells by “touching” is almost impossible: Even if your fingers are as sensitive as a piano virtuoso, you can’t react quickly enough. This is a game designed to be played on a computer and it deserves to be played with a keyboard & mouse as well.

BlueStacks allows you to do both. Moreover, you can play it not only with the keyboard and mouse, but also with a gamepad. In other words, you can regain control and survive longer in Dead Cells using BlueStacks.

To start, download the latest version of BlueStacks from our website and install it on your computer. Start the program and log in with your Google account. Type “Dead Cells” in the search box and press Enter. Select the game from the results displayed and start downloading.

Dead Cells has an installation file smaller than 1 GB so this won’t be a long job. In any case, you don’t have to wait in front of your computer: BlueStacks will complete the download and installation automatically. All you have to do is clicking the game’s icon on the home screen: Welcome to the game and start surviving!
