Like last year, Madfinger is bringing a holiday update to their popular zombie-killing mobile game, Dead Trigger 2. This year’s update includes a handful of extra content, including four new weapons, a new environment to play around in, new story and challenge missions, and a bunch of Christmas themed elements to get you in the holiday spirit.
Some of the new weapons are melee weapons that include the Big Hammer, Butterfly Sword, and the classic, a Machete. You’ll now be able to fight zombie hordes in China and access a bunch of new challenges and story missions, just in case you were running out. Madfinger is also bringing Google Play Achievements to the title. There are also some Christmas presents strewn throughout the game right now, but Madfinger isn’t saying exactly what they’ll do. If you’re an avid Dead Trigger fan, you may want to stock up on those for when they do get an actual purpose in the game.
Already late in delivery, Madfinger Games has released some new screenshots for Dead Trigger 2, the sequel to their popular zombie-killing title Dead Trigger. They have also promised to announce the release date on September 19, 2013. In addition to the screenshots, to help keep people at bay while they wait for the title to be available on Android devices, Madfinger has also announced some more details about improvements in this newest iteration of the Dead Trigger series:
About a month ago, Madfinger Games released the multi-player version of their popular 3rd-person shooter Shadowgun. The beta was initially open only to those with Tegra 3 devices and then later opened up to other devices. On November 15th the game will come out of beta status for all to enjoy. Once the finished product is released onto the Play Store, it’ll contain ten playable characters, a variety of weapons, equipment, and two game modes with up to 12 players total. The game will also feature a ranking system which, as you progress, will unlock other features. As mentioned, the game will be available on November 15th free of charge, but will have the option for in-game purchases.
Halloween is one of my personal favorite times of year. First-person video games are another of my favorite things. Unsurprisingly, the latest update to Dead Trigger is right up my alley. The update to the zombie-filled, first-person shooter brings a new Haunted Graveyard arena as well as a new weapon – the crossbow. It also looks like you can grab the minigun at a reduced price, and you can use that amazing piece of weaponry to test out the new rag-doll physics applied to the rolling pumpkin heads after you blast them off of the undead bodies.

Fans of the now freemium game
Dead Trigger have even more reason to be excited. After a little over two weeks since the game became available for free (ahem, officially), the game has just received a massive update. This isn’t just a map or a weapon update. This is a full-fledged upgrade to version 1.5 including two new arenas to get your frag on and a plethora of other goodies to keep you gaming. You can find the complete change log and download links once you hit past the break:
Last week we mentioned that Madfinger, developer of zombie shooter Dead Trigger, had decided to make the game free due to the piracy rate for Android apps being “unbelievably high“. This statement, of course, has caused a lot of debate over whether Android apps are easier to pirate than iOS apps, and how big a problem piracy really is for Android.
The latest developer to speak out about piracy is Chris Pruett, the developer of the very popular Wind-up Knight game. His point of view, however, is a little different than Madfinger’s. He took to Twitter to post a series of 10 tweets explaining his thoughts. It started with this:
“Lotta press about Android piracy lately. For the record, our piracy rate is about 12% on Android and about 15% on iOS.“
So first of all, he is stating that piracy is happening, but also states that it’s not an Android only problem, with the iOS piracy rate slightly higher than Android. But he goes on to say more on Google+, basically compiling all his tweets into one cohesive statement. Read it after the break.
Where you one of the many who paid for Madfinger’s Dead Trigger before they decided to make the game free a few days ago? I bet your pissed, huh? Well, you’re not alone my friends and Madfinger wants to make it up to you by giving you some new and exclusive content. The new add-on will come within the next update and will be given out to early adopters only, the ones who paid $.99 for the game. No word on what the update will include or when it will be pushed out, but it’s sure nice to know that Madfinger wants to make things right. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get a new “high roller” level or something. :-) We’ll keep you posted.
When the mobile game company Madfinger lowered their newest game Dead Trigger from $1.00 to free, there was a small sense of outrage within the Android community. While it didn’t bother me since it was just a buck for such an exceptional game, I can see why it would bother some early adopters to see the game become free in such a short amount of time.
Today, Madfinger released an official statement regarding the price drop via their Facebook page and fingers the blame on Androids ongoing app piracy problem as the reasoning for this sudden move. Here’s their official statement after the break:
Madfinger Games’ newest mobile gaming masterpiece Dead Trigger is receiving a hefty update very soon. If you haven’t already purchased this gem of a game, then maybe this update will finally persuade you. Dead Trigger is a game with wonderful graphics and set in a zombie apocalyptic world where you shoot up as many zombies as you can while staying alive. Any Walking Dead fans out there?
This update also brings support for devices that don the Adreno 205 GPU (Snapdragon S2 processor) such as the Sony Xperia Play and numerous popular HTC phones such the T-Mobile myTouch 4G, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Desire HD, etc. The update brings the game to versions 1.1.0 and Madfinger was kind enough to provide a changelog ahead of it’s impending release:
Looking for some gaming action to take up during the July 4th holiday this week? Madfinger Games has just the answer to help you out a little bit. Starting today, they have put both Shadowgun and Samurai II: Vengeance on sale for only $0.99 in the Google Play store. Hit the break for links.
