Dead Trigger Finally Available On Android; Shadowngun and Samurai II Go On Sale!

MADFINGER Games are known to release some of the most popular and quality games in the Play Store including Shadowgun and Samurai II: Vengeance. The company has now released a new zombie killing FPS on the Play Store, Dead Trigger. The company has teased us the game a couple of months ago, and had released the iOS counterpart of the game just last week. The Android version of the game was supposed to be released on 2nd July, but some last minute bug-fixes delayed the release by a day.

The story-line of the gameplay is as follows -:

In 2012 modern civilisation is coming to an end. Global economics have been disrupted, money has lost its value. People have risen against the ignorant politicians who were just lining their pockets – and they didn’t spare any of them.

However, those who really ruled the world were prepared – and escaped. Suddenly billions of people died from a strange virus, while others turned into butcherly beasts with just one thought:

Only a few people on the planet have survived, at least until they run out of ammo… or learn how to stop them…”

Smash hordes of bloodthirsty zombies * Secure vital supplies * Save other survivors * Protect the Safe Haven * Explore the city * and uncover the provoking truth in this intense FPS action game!

I have been playing the game over the last 24 hours on my Galaxy Nexus, and while the storyline of the game takes a backseat while a user goes on a zombie-killing spree. Dead Trigger is available for only $0.99 in the Play Store, but be warned that theere are some in-app purchases in the game as well. Unlike the previous games from the company, this time there is only a single version of the game even for Tegra powered devices. The Tegra powered Android devices however will get some other graphic effects including water simulation and spectacular ragdoll.

MADFINGER Games has also two of their other games on Android for sale – Shadowgun and Samurai II: Vengeance – at only $0.99. If you have not already purchased these games, this is probably the best time to do so.
