This is the moment we’ve been waiting for, folks. Get your thumbs ready because Dead Trigger from Madfinger Games is now officially available for Android. The same guys that brought you Shadowgun and Samurai II: Vengeance — Dead Trigger drops players into a post-apocalyptic world where zombies are running amok. Lucky for you, heavy weaponry is plentiful and you can blast your way through 40 hours of gameplay, leaving behind a trail of dead, zombified carcasses in your wake.

Originally scheduled to launch yesterday, Madfinger Games experienced a few, last minute technical problems which delayed the games release, but have all since been taken care of. As a “thank you for waiting gift,” Madfinger is giving Android users access to a few new features, not yet available on its iOS counterpart (but coming soon in an update). Booyah, suckas! (Haven’t said that since 4th grade). So, which features, tweaks, and enhancements do Android users get to claim firsties to? Let’s take a look:

New Features

  • IronSight
  • Hard difficulty missions

Bug Fixing

  • Player can move while using grenades, etc
  • Bank will not disappear
  • Money Booster is working now
  • Spawn blood particles, even when zombie is dying or is dead
  • Fixes minor issues in Contests
  • Removed some debug logs
  • Fixed stutter when enemies use obstacles for first time
  • Various fixes in the missions, graphics


  • Cost of some weapons are lowered
  • Higher chance for contest spawning
  • Running zombies will start spawn sooner
  • Improved injury animations

Alright, my juices are already flowing and I’m ready to start scoring some head shots. The best part about Dead Trigger? Madfinger has generously included the game as part of their 99 cent app sale. No telling how long this will last so you’d better hurry. Expect a full review/hands-on a little later today. Have fun, and happy 4th of July!
