When it comes to video games, all soldiers are expendable. But when it comes to online multiplayer shooters, they're also respawnable. That's right, there's no ambiguity in Zynga's latest title. The Respawnables is an action-packed shooter with pick-up-and-play multiplayer modes. This game was in a limited beta, but now it's found its way into the Play Store, and it doesn't cost a dime.

The Respawnable is a third-person shooter with over 100 single-player missions complete with fast-paced cartoony violence and unlockable characters. This is nice, but it's the multiplayer that is the star of the show, and players can jump into online games without having to create an account or deal with any other hassle. After downloading the game, I was able to hope into a match in under a minute. There's both team-based and free-for-all matches available, and players can compete over WiFi or cellular data.

Since this is a Zynda title, Respawnables pushes you to sign into Facebook and offers five gold bars right on its title screen. That should tell you a lot about the experience. It doesn't cost anything to download, but as we all know with mobile titles, few games are ever truly free.

    looks like Battlefield Heroes

    I think I see a ghostbusters proton pack in one of the screenshots.

  • IncCo

    Looks like an exact copy of blitz brigade

    • rolo143

      an exact copy of this. This game was launched before on iPhone. Besides, if there's something gameloft doesn't have, is originality. Example s:

      Nova 3 = Halo
      Modern combat = call of duty
      Gangstar = grand theft auto

      And so on.. :p

    "When it comes to video games, all soldiers are expendable."

    Wow what an IGNORANCE. ALL soldiers are expendable, no need to have a context like a digital one.
    BTW, did you know that our "reality' is actually a illusionary hologram?

      By "holo"gram I hope you mean #HOLOYOLO.
      Praise be to Duarte most high.

    Another shooter without gyroscope controls.
    Is this some kind of conspiracy? Maybe I'm stupid, and missing something obvious?
    Gyroscope is THE ultimate way of aiming for any mobile 3-D shooter. Once you tried it you'll never want anything else (except for gamepad of course).

    • Ror

      Gyroscope controls are absolutely terrible on a car, train, or bus though.

      • Sergii Pylypenko

        They are not - I'm playing in the subway regularly, it's totally immune to shake. However, if your device does not have hardware gyroscope, and uses accelerometer+compass emulated sensor, yes it is terrible. All new devices have necessary hardware, starting from Galaxy S2.

    Using the nvidia shield in this game just feels like cheating
