Madfinger's Dead Trigger was undoubtedly one of last year's premier mobile games. It brought forth elements that were previously only seen on consoles: quality graphics, a decent storyline, and gameplay that involved more than throwing birds at a some repurposed Jenga blocks. It was (and still is), a gamer's game.

Like with all popular games, we all expected a sequel. Something more immersive, with better gameplay, more features, a deeper storyline, and the like. Madfinger has been teasing Dead Trigger 2 for some time now, which should offer all of the above features, and now it's finally available. Right now.

This game is packed to the gullet with guts (much like a normal human being, I suppose), guns, and action. You're once again fighting for your life against hordes of undead, but this time you're not alone. DT2 brings about a whole new level of gameplay, as you'll actually have to team up with other in-game NPCs to complete specific missions.

While the living companions in themselves bring a whole new angle of gameplay, there are new undead to face, as well. Bigger, stronger, more undead-ier, they're ready and willing to eat your face. And torso. And legs. But not your feet. Fun fact: even zombies hate feet. Crazy, I know.

Dead Trigger 2 is a free game in the Play Store, and much like last year's title should feature what I assume will be fairly reasonable and optional IAPs. Hit the link to start playing.

Thanks, Anthony Garrett!

    • Andrew

      Finally, something to distract me from constantly refreshing for Nexus 5 news!

      • DeadSOL

        I feel the same way! :D

    • Amy

      Thanks for the news! Play don't worked for me but I managed to download from Feirox. http://www.feirox.com/dead-trigger-2-apk-sd-data-android-free-game-download

      lol, I had the exact same thought--and the day before my B'day so it was like a gift just for me.

  • Sean Lumly

    This is huge! I haven't installed it yet, but I hope that there's the choice of display resolution so that I can enjoy it with decent framerates on my Nexus 10.

      this game plays WAAAAYYY better on my 2013 N7 than the old one did on my old N7. I am amazed at the frame rates on this game. looks awesome and none of those corny Tegra effects.....I'm sorry, but i dont want water dripping down my screen when I'm trying to shoot zombies.

      • Sean Lumly

        You're making me wish that I had a N7 2013! I too like the 'idea' of added effects, but I agree that the Tegra effects are overdone.

  • Trent Callahan

    I'm still waiting for a racer that appeals to me :( Asphalt is a bit "cheesy" imo.

    • turdbogls

      agreed. but its hard for me to get into a racing game with touch screen controls (i hate tilting my tablet around)
      if i just manned up and bought a moga pro, i think i would be much happier with the racing games available (mainly real racing, need for speed, asphalt ect.)

      • nitamse

        Yes, tilting and using joystick are the worst control methods. Therefore choose the arrow buttons instead.

    • nitamse

      -Colin McRae Rally 2 with PlayStation emulator (or Driver 1 and 2, however Drivers are not racing games, but driving games)


  • Ray

    @archon810:disqus liking the new app widget. Just need the rest of the website revamped now. ;)

    • My name is….

      i like it as is, its the best interface EVA

      • Ray

        it's not too bad overall but compared to some other websites out there today, it is certainly lacking some sex appeal.

        • My name is….

          I have many on my bookmarks, this is the sexier.

          • Leonardo Farage Freitas

            I just think that this old website model of displaying everything in the center wastes too much space. I dunno why this even came to be, but today with all these wide screens and all. Just wasting space.

            I like the layout, I just think that AP should push the right box to the far right of the screen and fill the rest with the article and commentaries.

          • solbin

            Sometimes less is more. I like how easy it is to see the new stories compared to other websites. The simplicity is really nice, and one of the main reasons why I prefer this site over other android news sites.

  • Pratik Holla

    anyone else having a problem on Galaxy s3? All i get is a black screen.

    • http://www.prosoftstudio.com/ Brandon Enriquez

      Same that is all I get as well. The common Disable HW Overlays doesn't do anything to help.

    • nyr2k2

      seems lots of folks with an S3 are having issues. it's working fine on mine at the moment.

  • tym0

    Aaahh! I can't believe my nexus 7 is dead, I really want to play this game.

  • ather akber

    If you have a note 3 device (dunnow if it works on others), use this to activate tegra4 graphics! I tested on my N9005


  • Maxime Henrion

    Damn. Just when I was finally about to reach the final level of improvements for my Uzi in the original version :-). Let me dream - is there any way to transfer cash/gold/weapons across games?

  • heiti

    I hate those tegra exclusive graphic features! If an iphone 4s is able to play it, my nexus 4 wouldn't had a problem with it....i guess i just have to wait for a mod to unlock ultra graphics :(

    • turdbogls

      whats the big deal. am i the only one that turns that shit off? OOOOwwww some smoke, some sparkles in the air, and some water running down the screen obstructing my view.....ummmm pass.

  • Valynor


    This app has access to these permissions:
    Your location
    approximate location (network-based)
    precise location (GPS and network-based)

    Nope, I'm not letting a simple game know my precise location down to less than 5 meters. It's none of their business. Approximate location is sufficient for localized ads.

    • BoneCollector

      If you have a 4.3 Android just revoke the permission.

        • UniBroW

          there's a hidden shortcut to appops if you're using a custom launcher though the easiest way is to download App ops Starter from the play store. =)

  • Funem

    Does this require an internet connection to play, or can it be played offline ?

    • http://www.youtube.com/crisr82 Kristian Ivanov

      It requires internet connection at all time, no offline mode available

  • http://www.youtube.com/crisr82 Kristian Ivanov

    Always online to play, worse controls than the original, tegra-exclusive graphics...yeah definitely am improvement [/sarcasm]

    • GraveUypo

      no offline play?
      yeah i guess i'm not even downloading it.

  • Hamza Javed
  • Digi

    Not seeing this coming up on the Playstore

    • Digi

      Never mind....couldnt find it on the play store, but when i googled it i linked to it that way......weird

  • Hamid ALobeidi

    why can't play this game offline?

    • Loogie Vuitton

      coz you dont love jesus

  • nitamse

    The fact that Dead Trigger 2 does not work offline, because it requires internet connection, it destroys the game. A game is not a game without the ability to play without internet connection.

    Dead Trigger 2 is a pile of shit. Or search for a cracked version (if there is) which works offline.
