Dead Cells is pretty darn terrific, and its iOS port is among the best we've seen in a fair while. Its blend of fast-paced hack-and-slash action and roguelike mechanics make for a great, often brutally hard time.

Playdigious, the team behind the port, tweeted out a little tease earlier today, suggesting some big news is on the way. Could it be the announcement of a release date for the long-awaited Android port? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, we have another wonderful piece of Dead Cells news for you – the iOS port is on sale for the first time ever. It's currently $5.99, down from the usual price of $8.99.

Six quid for one of the best indies around is an absolute steal, and those who value breadth of content above all will be pleased to hear that you can easily sink dozens of hours into its labyrinthine castle and many challenging bosses.
