The keys and buttons on UI are for DEBUG (Even though the iOS version is also be turned off when game controller online.), and it will be an optional in release version with default OFF. lol...


"Dead by Death is probably the best Castlevania-style action platformer that I've played in quite some time." - by TouchArcade

"Any fan of metroidvania games will feel right at home. Lacks the polish of big budget studio games. But ALL THE RIGHT stuff is in this game for it to be a fun action platformer. I hope they make another, deeper version with more polish."

"I'm obsessed with platformers, especially action platformers, and especially gunning action platformers. This is a GREAT game. It seems good platformers are very rare, despite many candidates. If you love Kero Blaster and the like, you'll enjoy this. The graphics and art are wonderful, the stages very well designed, and controls are tight. "

"Really impressed by this: it's 24Mb of old-school platform exploration and shooting, with fine pixel art, hidden secrets, weapon upgrades, solid virtual controls and good physics. It wears its Castlevania inspirations on its sleeve, yes, but in absolutely the best possible way."

“Ett av de bästa plattformsspelen någonsin på iOS. Kontrollen sitter som gjuten och bandesignen är både klurig, rolig och inte så lite utmanande. Är väldigt imponerad av det här spelet och vad det levererar. ”
