In addition, you will also have a good chance to show off. While playing you will see red strawberries on levels. They don’t influence the gameplay but the will come into account. After that you can share how many of them you gained to let other players know how great you are.

Celeste mechanics and gameplay

First of all, if you die you don’t have to start the level from the very beginning. Every level is divided into parts, each screen you play is a separate part. Therefore, after death you will have to replay only the active screen but not the whole level itself.

On the other hand there is a nice peculiarity. You can see dash charges by the color of Celeste’s hair. In other words, her hair color changes each time you use one of the middle-air dash charges. That optimizes your game as you don’t have to keep it in mind all look up somewhere else on the screen.

Moreover, you will find cutscenes with funny dialogues between the levels. They are easygoing and relaxing. So, you will feel the unique atmosphere of the game.
