Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review - A New Inevitably Needed DLC

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review - A New Inevitably Needed DLC

Two and a half years after its release, Dead Cells tirelessly continues to be updated. True "service game" of the rogue-lite, the title of Motion Twin does not have much to prove. This new paid DLC comes with a little bit of slack, and we are very happy to refill it.

Fatal Falls is also the second paid DLC of Dead Cells, after The Bad Seed. On the menu: two new "biomes", a new boss, a handful of enemies to discover, and new patterns to unlock. The program is also rather agreed and the quantity of novelties seems in all respects similar to what we already found on The Bad Seed. But the strength of this DLC is probably the inventiveness of these two new levels ("The Broken Temples" then "The Eternal Shores"), which are apprehended in an opposite way. First of all, I should say that these new environments are not accessible from prison, as was the case in The Bad Seed. You have to beat the Concierge beforehand (1st boss of the game) to be able to unlock access to the Broken Temples. Then comes a new moment in Dead Cells: at the end of this first level, access to the Eternal Shores is closed, blocked by two guards who bar your entrance. You have to think a bit to get through, which is ultimately not so common in Dead Cells, where reflexes are more often present than reflection.

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls game level

Anyway, let's get back to this first level. The Broken Temples is a 100% outdoor and very aerial area, which gives pride of place to the platform. Fairly linear and horizontal, the level stands out on several points and I understand why this new DLC is called Fatal Falls. Because many traps can make us fall in the blink of an eye, while many platforms crumble under our feet. On the enemy side, the same story: between the crows which fly in a straight line and make us retreat a few meters and enormous knights capable of throwing their gigantic sword from a distance, everything is done so that the void opens up under our feet. Visually, however, this new area is very bright, with splendid backgrounds displaying fallen statues and ruined temples. Not necessarily very long to go and finally quite quickly repetitive in terms of level design (we feel that the procedural generation is more limited), The Broken Temples remains one of the most original biomes in the game.

Fatal Falls
' only real flaw seems to be its relative stinginess when it comes to new unlockables. After several runs, I did not find anything transcendent except a few new costumes which remain above all aesthetic. A finding perhaps due to a certain dose of bad luck, but, on this point, The Bad Seed had been more satisfactory. Another negative aspect to note: on Switch, the Broken Temples area is not always very fluid, especially when a lot of traps and enemies are on the screen.

Dead Cells: Fatal Falls Game Review, the conclusion

Those who have already sanded Dead Cells and want more have no real reason to miss Fatal Falls. For the price of a couple dollars more, they will enjoy an ultra-fast action, through two levels as successful as they are different. Maybe I would have liked a little more craziness in the level design and more new loot, but Fatal Falls brings just the right amount of quality content to dive back for a few hours.

Atelier Ryza 2 Review, A Worrying Shift For The Series

With no less than half a million copies of Atelier Ryza shipped worldwide, I managed to give a critical size to the latest from that series. But great success does not come without great responsibility. The first having departed from many totems of the franchise, I was entitled to expect a certain number of investments to fill the gaps. but, It is not the case. The first thing that I hope very much by starting Atelier Ryza 2 is to finally be rid of the hopelessly candid atmosphere of the first game. Unfortunately, it's worse. I begin Ryza's new adventure when she receives a mysterious black egg. Left to perfect her alchemist skills in the capital, she thus attends the birth of a mysterious little creature called Fy. In parallel, Ryza reunites with Tao, his childhood friend. A model student in the history of antiquity, he gathered all the rumors and legends of the surroundings. The call of adventure is felt and the two rush into the ruins and other lost civilizations of the re

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Review: Strong Like A Viking, Thin Like An Assassin

It took 13 years and a slew of episodes for the Assassin’s Creed series for this brand new installment and then return to the Middle Ages. Valhalla , the new title, takes us back to the first years of the Golden Age of the Vikings and has chosen to forge its own path compared to its two predecessors, Origins and Odyssey . A colony to manage, from infiltration based on crowd concealment, the more extensive use of environmental puzzles, all grafted onto the modern Action-RPG approach of the license: anxious to offer a “best” approach. -of ”of the series, has Assassin's Creed Valhalla succeeded? Before we get started, a quick word is needed on the options at the start of the game: on this point, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is adorned with some good ideas offering better customization of the experience: it is for example possible to configure the difficulty of combat, that of exploration (offering more or fewer indications) and infiltration (determining the ability of enemies to

Are 2D Games Still Popular in 2020?

In 2020, the video game industry is full of new releases. Whatever if you are a game designer working for a 3A game company, or even if you are just an indy game developer, chances are you probably ask this question yourself: are 2D games still popular in 2020? The answer might surprising because actually 2D games are more popular than ever before starting with the retrogaming industry. Thankfully, 2D gaming later saw a resurgence in the industry,  and with most of these AAA series receiving 2D (or at least 2.5D) entries. Just think of these popular indie games like Nuclear Throne, Hyper Light Drifter, and also Super Meat Boy! Those 2D video games pave the way forward for what was nearly a lost art. Even if some blockbusters like Red Dead Redemption 2, Fortnite, and Overwatch seems to dominate the market, there will always be a place for 2D pixel art somehow. We have to remember that a video game is still an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate v
