Do you remember when as a little child you were sent to fetch something from the cellar and you were always afraid that something's lurking there in the darkness? Cellar will allow you to go back to these days and face the greatest fears from your childhood - join Lily on her quest to find her missing teddy, Blackbear the Pirate!

Cellar is a short, casual game created in pixel art. Gameplay is presented in top-down view (like Bomberman or early Zelda installments). At the core, the game requires you to find your way through a maze of crates and other stuff stocked in a basement and get the key that unlocks the door to next level. The ultimate goal is to find your lost teddy bear while avoiding dangerous traps and monsters that lurk in the cellar.

You're still here? OK, so here's some hard facts about the game:

  • It's a fine variation of Bomberman/Dyna Blaster in the world of Sokoban (you know, because of all the crates)
  • The game auto-saves only at the beginning of each level. Deal with it.
  • There are 8 levels. That's right, 8 of them.
  • It's a perfect choice to boost up your completion / achievement rate on Steam. You can get a nice, round 100% in about 1 hour, unless you turn out really bad at this game.
  • We actually said this already, but the expected playtime is about 1 hour. Enough for a refreshing break from all those well-known, repetitive AAA titles, but still short enough to keep you from getting frustrated.
  • You CAN actually speedrun through the game in 15 minutes, even though you're in a cellar and not a vault. Are you up for a challenge?
  • Speaking of challenge, there's also an additional, time-based difficulty setting that becomes playable after you beat the game once.
  • There are Steam Achievements, including those horrible hidden ones that you'll be dying to figure out before someone finally posts a guide for this game.
  • You can play it with a controller from the comfort of your couch. Or you can keep standing, that's fine too.
  • If you're still reading this, then we'd suggest you get the game, cause it seems we seriously got your attention.

Cellar reviews and comments

It Is A game in the purest classic style, only 4 moves, up, down, right and left. For the price you have guaranteed between 35 minutes to 1 hour of play, depending on how dexterous one is to solve the maps. When you finish the main adventure or even during it, you have other modes of play, like counterclockwise, etc.... For a euro, honestly, I think it's not bad and you can squeeze the juice to the game, with the different modes of play. I recommend It for its price/fun ratio.

Cellar is a simple and short game, but it will make you spend some time entertaining. It'S Simple: You drive a little girl who wakes up from her sleep, to find her favorite toy Blackbear is lost. After searching your home, the only place you can be is in the basement, however it won't be easy to find it. The game is just looking for your toy, using only the arrow keys, as I said before, is short and simple, but it will keep you entertained for a couple of hours. If you get it on offer it's worth a lot, as it has Chrome and Accomplishments. I recommend 100% only if you want to spend a fun time without many complications, otherwise do not buy it.

Cellar is a very small game with simple mechanics. A Little girl goes down to the cellar to find her teddy bear. At each of the 10 levels hidden some toy, key and door. You need to find a toy, grab the key and run away from the big monster, overcoming obstacles. A Game for those who have enough patience to pass the same level for 5-6 times. Relatively Nice music, but incredibly annoying sound on Game over, there are problems with highlighting items to collect (not always clear, it is an element of décor or toy). It is Not possible to call Cellar a good game – it is rather similar to the result of a two-day gamepad, but also catastrophically bad there is nothing in it. It is Possible to take if there is an unnecessary dollar.

little puzzle game atmosphere very nice to play the more its price is ridiculous so much enjoy it:) It embodies a little girl living in the only House with countless Subfloors filled with washing machines!!! (a clandestine laundromat would explain everything!) who has the habit of falling asleep with his pirate Teddy bear (because it is the class!) blackbear, but one night the girl wakes up and does not find her cub! so she decides to arm herself with courage and a lantern to explore the subsoils (catacombs?) in search of blackbear. but voila... There are not only 15000 washing machines,32 bicycles and 20 pairs of skis downstairs. not nice monsters, unstable soil, steam leaks and a big dog zombie-pedobear lurch... It's screwed for the State of the places.. the flat, the soundtrack turns fast in a loop, I quickly switched on Pantera which well on glue perfectly to the atmosphere! (or not)
