One of my most anticipated meetings was with MADFINGER Games’ CEO – Marek Rabas. This guy is extremely passionate about his company’s games and that’s probably why it’s so good in the first place. He was on hand to show off SHADOWGUN: Dead Zone multiplayer, a freemium game that will make its way exclusively to Tegra 3 devices at the end of March.
Freemium, if you don’t know, means that you can download and play the game for free, but some unlocks or features may only be available to those who pay. It’s a great model for those who don’t want to pay for a game but would still like to enjoy some of the experience.
The gameplay is just like you’d expect from SHADOWGUN. Hit detection is great, you get satisfaction from bullets piercing the skin of your foes and grenades blowing them to smithereens, and the best thing of all is that it’s quite easy to get used to. Playing the game on-screen is great but you haven’t squeezed all you can out of the experience until you’ve played with a controller.
Dead Zone’s multiplayer features bloody battles between up to 8 players in deatmatch, team deathmatch and more. With 6 maps (more are on their way), customizable characters and a ton of different ways to take your opponent out (customizable weapoons!), this game should give any mobile shooter fan their fix.
