Vampire Survivors simply obtained an surprising launch on cellular—all the game is on the market to download without delay on iOS and Android. The game is free on each platforms, although the app web page suggests this model has advertisements.

I’ve performed a couple of rounds of the iOS model up to now and it does seem like a whole (or close to full) model of the $5 Steam game that is been persistently well-liked all through 2022. Developer Poncle hasn’t formally introduced the cellular launch but, however judging by the timing and this tweet, that is probably considered one of reveals deliberate for tonight’s Game Awards.

After a couple of runs of Vampire Survivors on my iPhone I have not hit an advert but. A nice shock, but when Poncle is utilizing the identical ugly, disruptive advert breaks that so many different cellular video games are infested with today, my first advert could come after I hit a sure threshold of makes an attempt. 

Both method, I might fortunately drop one other $5 for a similar ad-free model of Vampire Survivors that I already get pleasure from on my PC. That does not appear to be an possibility anyplace within the app itself, however fingers crossed that it is coming.

It will not shock you to listen to that Vampire Survivors performs very well on a telephone display screen. All you want is one thumb dragging within the path you need to move, and the remaining is completed for you. You’ll be able to activate an on-screen joystick if you happen to desire and swap from the default portrait view to panorama—which, relying in your playstyle, may be the best way to go. Whichever path you’ll be able to see extra of (up/down or left/right) is usually the most secure path to journey, particularly when you’re 15-20 minutes right into a run and the enemy density is ridiculous.

Assuming that is an unofficial Game Awards reveal, it is simply considered one of many anticipated to unfold tonight. You’ll be able to watch the awards right here and browse concerning the rumors, confirmed reveals, and our predictions earlier than the festivities kick off.
