Madfinger Games Celebrating 4 Year Anniversary by Updating Popular Titles This Month

There are few companies out there that have taken the mobile gaming industry by storm quite like Madfinger Games. This is the company behind games we have been playing for a long time, such as DEAD TRIGGER, Shadowgun and Samurai Vengeance. Four years and 60 million downloads of their games later, here we are today, and Madfinger wants to celebrate by giving us more of what we love.  (more…)

Madfinger Pushes Winter Update to Dead Trigger, Prepare to Battle Zanta

 

The Madfinger development team is definitely in the Christmas spirit, as they just launched an update to Dead Trigger revolving around the holidays. Inside, you will find a new North Pole Christmas arena, including a new boss called “ZANTA.” On top of that, you can equip a grenade launcher which should certainly help you get through a few waves of rabid reindeer.  (more…)

Halloween Updates Go Live for Dead Trigger and Ski Safari in Google Play

Two days ago, we mentioned that Madfinger Games was to release a Halloween update for their zombie-killing epic hit, Dead Trigger. Today, the update is live and you can go grab it in Google Play right now. The update isn’t just some random pumpkin-headed zombies either. Madfinger included a brand new cemetery arena, reduced price for the minigun (fun!), and the brand new crossbow weapon complete with ballistic arrows. That should be exciting.  (more…)

Madfinger Has Halloween Themed Update for Dead Trigger Coming Out

 

I don’t know about you, but I still love blowing the heads off of zombies. Yesterday, Madfinger Games announced that a special Halloween-themed edition of Dead Trigger would land on Google Play. Naturally, it’s “coming soon” with no official date, but I would guess this Friday or next Monday at the latest.

From the image above, we can see there’s some pumpkin-brained zombies and maybe there will even be some new weapons and maps? And speaking of Madfinger, have you tried out the Shadowgun:DeadZone beta? It’s still my favorite game at the moment.  (more…)

Friday Poll: Freemium or Paid App Model?

Whenever Dead Trigger gets a mention, we can’t help but think about the launch controversy that initially accompanied it. Madfinger, the makers of the game, charged users for the game up front and then also hawked in-app purchases of guns and add-ons to help you cruise through levels easier. If you checked out the comments and reviews for the game during its first couple of weeks, you were bound to be overwhelmed by negativity. Thankfully, they made the game free after a short period of time, but kept the in-app add-ons.

Normally, app developers either go the freemium route (free app + in-app add-ons) or simply make you pay for it up front with no additional costs to follow. Madfinger threw everyone for a loop, but eventually came around to one of the standard models. And that brings us to today’s poll.

What would you rather deal with – freemium apps or paid apps with no additional add-ons?

Madfinger’s Dead Trigger Update Goes Live, Early Buyers Receive Good Compensation

Madfinger pushed an update for Dead Trigger this morning. If you happen to be one of the many people who bought the game for a dollar before it was made free due to “unbelievably high piracy rates,” you’re going to love this update. For those that purchased, there is a brand new alien gun, new Story missions, new items such as a laser turret and mini-mortars, and free gold + Casino chips. Not bad.  (more…)

Madfinger Credits “Unbelievably High” Piracy Rates on Android for Price Change to Dead Trigger

Last week, Madfinger Games published an updated version of Dead Trigger to Google Play. Along with the massive update, the publisher also decided to drop the game’s price from a low $0.99 to completely free. Many early buyers were somewhat confused by this decision and took to Madfinger’s social media outlets to see if they intended on either refunding people’s money or would give them all in-app credit.  (more…)
