From MADFINGER Games I present Dead Trigger. If you enjoy games that involve slaughtering zombies then this may be the game for your handset. As a fan of most zombie based shooters, when I first saw this game I decided it was a must have for me. I was going to complete the game and then do a full review however it may take another couple of days, therefore this shall be my first impression review with a full review to follow.
Following a similar background to the resident evil storyline. We begin in a run down city in which civilisation has collapsed. The city is plagued by a breakout of a virus released by the rulers of the civilisation, causing the infected to turn into zombies. Obviously this is a cliché in the zombie franchise but to use another cliché; if it’s not broke don’t fix it.
Currently the game is available from Google Play Store for £0.75 on version 1.01. The game takes up a hefty 96.32mb of storage.
From my experience so far in the game I am rather impressed. Graphically it joins many games that have been released recently that show just how far mobile gaming has come along. As can be seen in the image there are four buttons: One to fire, one to reload, one to aim and the last to use an auxiliary item such as grenade or a bandage to regain health. Swiping on the left hand side of the screen produces the joy stick and doing the same on the right adjusts the camera angle. From what I’ve seen this control system works rather well, however the camera adjustment can be a bit jumpy if high sensitivity is in use, which most gamers prefer.
As an attempt to avoid spoilers all I have to say about the storyline so far is that it is a bit slow going and all of the missions are based around the same three formats and vary only in the difficulty. All I can hope for at the moment is the missions get more exciting, with ore variation in the style and perhaps a variation in the types of enemy you have. The mission select menu is based around a map of the city which I found a rather interesting feature. This menu allows you to but and upgrade weapons, equip weapons, choose your next mission and check your statistics.
The biggest problem so far seems to be that the cheap pricing of the game isn’t as cheap as I thought. Every opportunity the developers try to get more money out of you, whether this be for new items, new weapons or the ability to carry more, which can be done in game with money earned from missions but appears to be difficult. My biggest fear is that this will severely increase the difficulty of the game if your not willing to spend mega bucks to have a fighting chance.
All in all so far I am impressed with this game however I do hope the game gets better as it will be truly disappointing if not. This game has great potential and I hope that it will surprise me. I shall post a full review as soon as I finish the game.
