Have you played Dead cells? That’s pretty good, at least if you like a tough-as-nails platformer that mixes in parts of Castlevania and Dark souls. Famous for its PC and console gift 2018, the game came out for Android (and by extension, ChromeOS devices that can run Android apps) earlier this year. If you have a new Chromebook, it’s now free.
This part of Google’s “ChromeOS Perks” system: buy a Chromebook, get free stuff, like a few months with Disney + or a year of Google’s One cloud storage upgrade. Recently, Google has expanded this to popular Android games, such as “I can not believe it is not Harvest Moon” Stardew Valley. If you go to the Perks page on a Chromebook, you should claim and install Dead cells, $ 9 is your game to keep forever.
Please note that this promotion is only valid in the US, but it runs for a full year. If you’re on a Chromebook with Android app functionality and you do not see it on the Chrome Perks page right away, try again in a few days – sometimes it’s a little tricky.
Oh, and if you’re going to play Dead cells… get a controller. Chrome OS supports Bluetooth controls just fine, and you absolutely need one to play through the battle-heavy, platform-focused game. It is possible to play Dead cells on a keyboard, in the same sense that it is possible to use a bicycle to deliver a mattress.
