Assist Mode is a new mode to customize the games difficulty added in Version 2.9. It was added alongside new accessibility options. Enabling this mode does not disable Achievements, the acquiring of Boss Stem Cells or perfect kill rewards. It does, however, hide your score from being on the Daily Challenge leaderboard.

Assist mode lets you customize certain game settings to make it more accessible. Dead Cells is a difficult and demanding but easy to play game. We therefore recommend using these options to fit the difficulty to your needs while keeping the game challenging for you.

However, our goal with this mode is to make the game accessible to the broadest audience possible without forcing you to play with arbitrary difficulty settings. Feel free to use whatever option you want! What really matters is that you have fun playing Dead Cells!
