Madfinger’s hit zombie shooterÂ DEAD TRIGGERÂ has already reached 14 million downloads, and the dev team has taken the opportunity atÂ NVIDIAâ€™s CES 2013 press conference to announc DEAD TRIGGER 2. It was demoed on NVIDIA’sÂ Project SHIELD – a 360-like controller with it’s own flip up 5″ 720p display, running on a Tegra 4 chip – and it’s once again powered by the Unity game engine. According to Marek Rabas, CEO of Madfinger, DT2Â is going to be even bigger, better and much more addictiveâ€. Not a whole lot has been revealed at this point, but it’s probably safe to say that there’ll be even more zombies and the undead to kill and the visuals will be top notch. As for the release date, expect it to see the light of day in the second quarter of 2013 on both Android and iOS devices. Check out some gameplay footage after the break.
Dead Trigger, the gorgeous first person zombie shooter released by Madfinger Games a little over a month ago, not only got a rather significant update, but the game has also gone completely free. It was previously available for $0.99, and it would appear that this is a permanent price drop. As pointed out by IGNÂ recently, Madfinger decided to drop Dead Trigger on Android from $0.99 to free due to anÂ “unbelievably high” piracy rate. And while the developer has stated on Facebook that piracy rates are much higher on Android, it looks as though they’ve decided to go the “Free-to-play” route on iOS as well.
This week felt like the proverbial Christmas in July when it came to new games for iOS devices.Â In addition to the fine list Iâ€™ve compiled below, gamers were treated to a quirky tower defense game called Vampire Season.Â You are Draculaâ€™s right hand man, and you must use a crazy assortment of ghouls and what-not to keep those pesky humans from finding Draculaâ€™s coffin.Â If youâ€™re more into RPGs, Squids Wild West might float your boat.Â This sequel to last yearâ€™s acclaimed aquatic tactics game (TMA Review)Â takes a whole new look at the concept of cowboys.Â For those that want something completely different in tone thereâ€™s Frisbee Forever 2, the game that lets you show off your virtual disc throwing skillz.Â It’s free and looks to be sporting some pretty sharp graphics for a game about tossing a plastic object through the air.
Madfinger Games’ highly anticipated zombie shooter – DEAD TRIGGERÂ – has finally been unleashed onto the App Store. First announced earlier this month, the follow up toÂ SHADOWGUNÂ brings console quality FPS action to the small screen. The storyÂ is your typical zombie affair, with billions having been wiped out and now you must find a way to survive the onslaught. The graphics simply look amazing for a handheld device, and we have the Unity 3D engine to thank for that. Aside from the gorgeous visuals, players will be treated with more than 40 hours of gameplay, advanced ragdoll effects, and even get to decide whether they want to blow a zombie’s brains out or chop them up limb by limb (can anyone say Dead Island?). Best of all, the game’s only $0.99 on the App Store, not to mention that it’s a very friendly 116MB download. By the looks of it, Madfinger’s got another massive hit on their hands. Full PR and video trailer after the gap.
Â MADFINGER Games, a.s.,Â DEAD TRIGGERÂ – $0.99
MADFINGER Games, the talented developers behind the hit iOS gamesÂ Samurai II: VengeanceÂ (TMA Review)Â and SHADOWGUNÂ (TMA Review), have unveiled their next release: Dead Trigger, an action packed first person zombie shooter. Created using the Unity game engine, Dead Trigger will bring console quality graphics to the mobile platform and will featureÂ ragdoll physics, volumetric fog,Â advanced lighting and post-process effects. Typical story aside (a present day virus has turned billions into flesh craving undead, and only a handful of survivors left on earth), the game is certainly looking like it’ll be among the best of the FPSes on the App Store and Google Play when released in late June. Device compatibility has not been revealed yet, though it’s a good bet that only the more recent iDevices and Android phones/tablets will be able to run Dead Trigger. In the mean time, check out the video trailer, more screenshots and press release after the gap.
