Ah, the holidays. Nothing says family togetherness like carols, eggnog, and a horde of ravenous undead monsters trying to gobble your brains like gingerbread. Madfinger's popular zombie shooter Dead Trigger has been updated once again: after the crowd-pleasing Halloween content, they've gone and added Christmas-themed levels. You'd better hope for some ammunition in your stocking.

In addition to a new North Pole Christmas Arena, you'll get to face off against new boss Zanta. (Zombie Santa? Christopher Moore would be proud.) A shiny new grenade launcher should make his torso shake like a bowl full of jelly, and there are new story missions to while away the cold winter nights. Since Dead Trigger is supported solely by in-app purchases, Madfinger has reduced the price on some of the weapons, not to mention a few memory tweaks for older devices. The update is live in the Play Store.

    for me all the weapons got more pricey, but after playing the arena i got a popup deal which snagged me the pistol for 15 gold...

    Minigun originally only costs 89 gold now costs 260 gold!! Greedy bastards!! Game play lags even when graphics setting set at medium or low. Especially when zombie appears or walking around. Lousy update.

      sounds reasonable. i bought it for 80 gold ways back and it felt too OP for the price. it's the best gun in the game by far.

      Minigun's original cost is 260. It was on sale during Halloween until now.

    Just updated. Frame rates seems to have improved (Nexus 7), transitions too. I still don't get why there's that initial jerk/lag each time you start a new level (or pop your first head-shot) though. New missions are welcome, though I haven't played them yet (not interested in the free T-shirt). Checked out the North Pole arena level, and it was nothing special. Grenade launcher sounds tempting, but when I compare the damage stats to what I already have (all upgraded to max) it doesn't seem all that worth it. I wish there was a way I could trade game cash for gold. Got a ton of cash (2 million +) but only 240 gold :(
