The 10 best Mac games of 2018

The name Dead
Cells
works on so many levels. For one,
you’re literally playing as a mass a mass of cells that
reanimates the bodies of dead prisoners in order to escape a
prison. For another, the cells of that dungeon are stuffed with
dead bodies, giving you plenty of options to choose from when
you fail.

And fail you will. Unlike its inspirations Metroid and
Castlevania, though, Dead Cells kicks you
back all the way to the beginning when you die, and then the
levels randomly rearrange themselves with new enemies and rooms
when you revive. It’s not as mean as it could be, though, as it
lets you keep the upgrades you earn along the way.
