Madfinger’s Dead Trigger to Receive Major Update: “More Blood, More Guns, More Gadgets”

Once Madfinger’s Dead Trigger hit Google Play, it instantly skyrocketed to the top of the charts and has since been able to maintain a very high popularity level among mobile gamers. With its insanely awesome graphics, fast-paced gameplay, and endless amount of zombie killing, Madfinger Games is looking to make it even more brutal with the games newest V1.1.0 update.

The update includes:

  • Enjoy the new funny and handy gadget — the Head-Flator X100 enables to inflate the heads of zombies to XXL size and… Headshot!
  • Meet new zombie creatures — mutated mobsters or armoured SWAT members
  • Explore new fantastic environments — underground car park or secret research base institute
  • Try out new gadgets or get more money – reveal deadly survival arena, that is tailor-made for massacre of hordes of zombies
  • Visit Casino and try your luck with a slot machine
  • Finally safe game data with cross platform cloud backup
  • This huge update brings Dead Trigger also to Adreno 205, including Sony Xperia Play!

According to Madfinger’s Facebook page, the update will be released very soon and users should keep an eye on their Google Play landing page. We’re stoked.

    Really Cool game. Follows on from games like Shadowgun and Angry Bots 9MB. The lightmapping is awesome and gun reload is particularly cool.

    All of the extra goodies in the world will not make up for the lame IAPs and nearly-impossible-to-afford weapon “purchases”. Ugh.

    The the first 2 games for Android by Madfinger (especially Shadowgun) were pure awesomeness, but they really went for a cheap cash grab this time around. Why don’t they just release a “free” version with IAPs then a $3 “Deluxe” version where you gain XP and weapon upgrades the old-fashioned way?!?

    • From Madfinger – “Regarding your complaints about IAP. We stand our ground. The only reason for IAP decision was to provide DT to as many people as possible. We have responded to greivance of fans who didn’t want to pay 5$ for SHADOWGUN. So we brought down the DT price while keeping it funny and fully playable without necessity of using IAP. According to us, IAP is only icing on the cake, nothing necessary to enjoy smashing gaming experience.”

      That about sums up my feelings toward people’s complaints of the IAP. 🙂

        While I was pissed off at first, the game is definitely playable and fun without the IAP, and while I agree that a version without IAP would be nice, a $1 game + $4 IAP (optional) is a better plan than a $5 game. At least cheapskates get to play a great game…

        Can’t wait for the update. Was having problems transferring my savegame using TiBu from my GS3 to my Nexus7.

        I agree with this. I ended up forking over an extra $.99 for 40K to buy some additional weapons and upgrades, and this made the game very enjoyable with more options. All in all, $1.98 for a game of this quality is still very reasonable. I have more issues with the gameplay mechanics than IAPs (I wish there was more exploring to do, instead of sitting around waiting for zombies to get close enough to blow their heads off). But for under $2, it rocks.

  • Hope this update doesn’t mess up the cheat to get the better graphics on non tegra devices!!! Any word or indication on this?

  • hmmmm, compatible will all five gnexs and both tablets,,,wish it would run on pc

  • opps never mind lol

  • like how it says ‘compatible with ‘some’ of your devices lol wonder which ones?

    “Finally safe game data with cross platform cloud backup”

    NICE! I was having a hell of a time using titanium backup to copy save game info from my GN to my N7. Just didnt seem to work. This will be an awesome addition.

    What happened to multi-player? There was supposed to be multi in Shadowgun as well .. Where did that go?

  • I can’t get into these kinds of mobile games. No matter how good they look, they still look like crap compared to a console game or even worse compared to a PC game. It’s like a playing an FPS from 2002.

    • EvanTheGamer

      I take it you don’t have a Tegra 3 device or a Nexus 7? Probably not. Also, are you blind? For a freakin’ mobile game, it looks pretty f’n incredible! Get your eyes checked immediately.

      AND these graphics are FAR MORE FREAKING SUPERIOR than the graphics in games from 2002. Seriously, you have to be bloody joking.

      Lastly, sure it’s your “opinion”, but why even comment if you have something negative to say?

      • I couldn’t agree more with your assessment of this person’s comment.

        • EvanTheGamer

          I just can’t see how those graphics look bad…there’s nothing bad about ’em. They look fantastic, even more so than on say..a PSP Vita. He must be smokin’ something, and that something I do not want any part of.

        • Frank F

          They first should focus on that stupid glitch that randomly throws our aiming off to like a 180 degree turn and makes it god awful to aim…it never fails at least once on every level …on both my N7 And my SGS3

          • blood

            I definitively agree with you. I thought I was the only one having those problems where it throws your aim off to about 180°

          • Higher_Ground

            Yes! It is extremely frustrating. I can live with IAP but the glitchy controls ruin it for me. I will be happy to throw down a few bucks once I know that I can play the game the way it was intended to be played.

    • r0lct

      What kind can you get into then?

    • Anthony_Armando

      get a tegra device (or unlock tegra with chainfire 3d) and then hook this up to your tv or a monitor. i had a friend come over while i was playing and using a PS3 controller. his first comment was, “new game?” followed by, “wait a second, you dont have a PS3. did you get one?” followed by, “holy cow, i couldnt even tell the difference.”

    • kretz7

      If you think these graphics look like ones from 2002 you clearly weren’t gaming back then. I don’t really play these types of games either, but the fact that they even exist on a mobile device is pretty bad ass.

      • Ok, so I’ll admit I don’t remember what graphics looked like in 2002 and I may have been exaggerating a bit. I also didn’t mean for my comment to sound so negative. I was simply stating that they don’t look nearly as good as a modern PC game. I have been gaming since 1985.
