I have personally been waiting for Dead Trigger to land in the Play Store since it was first announced at the beginning of June. It was originally supposed to be out yesterday, but due to some last minute bug fixes and additional enhancements, Madfinger pushed the release to today. Now, the wait is over: Dead Trigger is now available in the Play Store!

Update: This is universal - it will work for both Tegra and non-Tegra devices.

Why are you still reading this post? Go get it and slay some zombie scum!

    Strange, when loading https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=MADFINGER+Games the game is not listed. But the link from the article works. Installing now on my Evo 3D!

      Caching issues in the Play Store. Happens all the time.

    Will they have a THD version of this game? I thought they demoed that a few months ago.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      It's the same version. It should be optimized on Tegra processors but still works on others.

    does it work with game controllers? (i.e. PS3)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      It should, yes.

  • tanknspank

    No THD version of this one? I'm going to assume the same app is THD and regular for once then.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      Correct. Tegra devices will automatically get enhanced graphics without the need for a separate THD version. Updated the post to reflect this.

      • tanknspank

        Great! No longer having to decide which device I'd rather play a game on.

  • Sergii Pylypenko

    There are in-app purchases, can you beat the game without buying in-game stuff?

    • sssgadget

      From itunes review

      "This is a pretty good game with good graphics and variety, but the in app purchases ruin EVERYTHING. The guns and equipment are so expensive you'll be playing for hours before you can buy anything without spending real money. On top of that, about half the items are only accessible through in app purchases.

      It's a shame that this generation of great games and innovations all have to be ruined by this trend of in app purchases."

      • Nope.avi

        ok that part about half the items being only accessible through in app purchases made me refund it immediately.

    • Himmat Singh

      You don't 'beat' the game. The story just ends and after that you can go on and on indefinitely.

  • Woo

    Thanks for the heads up, AP...just bought it!

  • Wayne Randall

    IAPs? pass. thanks for trying Madfinger.

    Advice for non-tegra devices:

    Hi guys!, after playing this game for 2 minutes with graphic settings manually set on HIGH on my HTC Sensation XE @1.51GHz the phone reboot itself and somehow my /system partition got corrupted and i wasn't able to boot the phone. I reflashed the ROM without wipe and the kernel in my attempt to bypass the bootloop but nothing worked. I was forced to wipe all partitions and reflash the ROM from scratch (A nandroid backup would've done the trick too). Please DO NOT try to manipulate graphic settings, leave the game as is or you probably will end in the same situation. I think this is worth mentioning in the article considering there is only one version for tegra and non-tegra devices.

  • Frill Artist

    In App Purchases??? No, thanks.

  • ZombieJerky

    I almost bought this, then I realized there were in app purchases. They lost a sale.

    If they would just sell me the game for $5.00 I would buy it. If it is a really good game I would even pay $10.00. For any game, the moment I see in app purchases, I deinstall.

    • moelsen8

      Lost another one here. I refuse to support in app purchases as well. I can and have paid $5 for a ton of games.

      At least they're releasing one version for everyone. Can't stand the tegra/non-tegra BS as i own both.

        Game *cough* *cough* cih


        • thatdefault

          Only for money.

    • Jonathan Wong

      Let's send a message to the devs and request a single pay version without in game purchases

      • PAD

        they wont do that, piracy is incredibly high, around 99% user who instal is pirate. (they chose IAP to make money)

  • CJ Walker

    Loving the game so far. IAP do suck but these are moderately priced. 200 stars = 99¢ and by the looks of the gunshop it shouldn't cost you more than a $5 to buy all the weapons.

  • Leo

    Whats worse than a FPS game for consoles? A FPS game for touch screens.....

    • tBs_Battousai

      To be fair the touchscreen controls for Mass effect are really good, much better than these...

  • Palmer Nyako

    Lol just get critical strike.
    It makes buying shooters from gameloft retarded.
    Or from every other company as well.

  • Himmat Singh

    Hey guys, it's NOT temporarily on sale. That's its selling price.

  • Linch

    Is it pulled from the play store? I have it downloaded and I cannot find it in the play store or under the my apps section of the play store

  • http://www.feedchimp.com/ Nick DeSousa

    Just bagged this one. Really happy with the gameplay, especially happy with the controls. Somehow Madfinger has really managed to remove that awkward Watered-down FPS feel with this game. And the graphics? I'm playing on an AT&T One X and DAYUM is this the sweetest looking game or what? So they've got some in-app purchases. You just got the best looking game on Android for $1 and $5 for just about every weapon in said game is too much? Poppycock, I think this is a steal.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      I definitely agree.
