Additionally, Dead Cells: The Bad Seed DLC is also available for iOS and Android devices for $3.99. 

Dead Cells Whack-A-Mole adds The Toothpick, Oven Axe, and Tombstone weapons, three massively oversized bonking devices made for the express purpose of destroying everything in front of you. The update’s new mutations are Execution, which automatically kills enemies with less than 15% health; Barbed Tip, which inflicts damage over time; and Point Blank, which increases damage output at close range.

As if Dead Cells weren’t challenging enough already, Motion Twin is working on another difficulty option. This new difficulty would alter the challenge as follows:

  • BC0: Health fountains in every transition.
  • BC1: Health fountain every other transition, with one minor flask when the fountain is missing.
  • BC2: No more health fountain, one minor flask in every transition.
  • BC3: One minor flask after the first boss and before the second.
  • BC4: No more health in any transition, enemies teleport to your position.
  • BC5: No more health, enemies teleport, malaise added.
