Back in November of 2019, Madfinger's competitive first-person shooter Shadowgun War Games arrived on the Play Store for pre-registration. At the tail end of January, we learned the game would be officially released on February 12th, though it would appear Madfinger hit a few snags yesterday, and so the game was released late in the day, which is probably why the official PR didn't go out until this morning. Still, Shadowgun War Games is now officially available for all to enjoy, though it currently feels unfinished despite the presence of multiple subscription passes.
It would appear that the pre-registration for Shadowgun War Games was announced last year, though the title has been missing in action since that announcement. Thanks to a recent press release, it's clear that Madfinger Games hasn't given up on the title, and is now offering a beta sign-up on its website, and since registration is open to anyone, only so many slots in the beta will be available, so make sure to sign up soon, or else you may miss out.
Madfinger Games is probably best known for its Shadowgun mobile shooters, though I'm sure plenty of you enjoy its Dead Trigger zombie series as well. One thing is for sure, Madfinger is all about games with gunplay. Unkilled is one of its older FPS titles. It was originally released back in 2015, and it would appear that development has yet to cease as it just received a significant update. Not only is there a bunch of new content to explore, but there's a new co-op multiplayer mode that should really liven things up for the player base.
In an article from earlier this month, I talked about how Madfinger Games was planning the upcoming release for their long-awaited title Shadowgun Legends. This was supposed to go down on March 22nd, and well, it's the 22nd somewhere in the world, which means it's right on time. So if you dig mobile first-person shooters with a penchant for high-quality graphics, then you are in luck because Shadowgun Legends is finally here.
Madfinger Games'Shadowgun Legends has been in development for so long at this point that I completely forgot about it. But apparently, Madfinger is still plugging away. The official company Twitter recently tweeted that it will be releasing on March 22nd. So yeah, we will have to wait just a little while longer, though it's reassuring that they felt confident enough to finally mention a date.
When I was a kid, my dad used to tinker with model cars. As I got a bit older, he started buying them for me, as well; first, the simple snap-together kits, eventually moving up to ones that required glue, and then on to completely blank canvas vehicles that needed paint, glue, and everything in between. Those took some time, but there was a real sense of accomplishment when it was all finished (assuming everything went smoothly). That seems like it was ages ago at this point, and I probably haven't even thought about model cars in close to two decades.
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.
Zombies are still cool, right? Even if they're not, Dead Trigger 2 could potentially tip the scales of trendiness in favor of the undead. The zombie shoot 'em up has been teased a few times, but now we've got a date. Madfinger Games will release Dead Trigger 2 on October 23 – just in time for Halloween.
The game will be optimized for Tegra 4 devices like the Shield and just announced Tegra Note devices, but any modern Android device should be able to get in on the fun. There will still be lots of zombie shooting, but Dead Trigger 2 will be taking place in an expansive multiplayer world that develops in real time.
If you're a DeadZone player, there are now more ways and places to play than ever before: as of today, the game is also available on Facebook and PC. Mac owners, fret not – it's coming soon to your platform as well. This means you can now get your DZ fix regardless of where you are – all games are cross-platform, and you can log in with your existing credentials.
For those who aren't already playing DeadZone, you're missing out on one of the best multiplayer games to hit Android in... well, forever. Staying true to its name, DeadZone delivers familiar ShadowGun gameplay – but this go you're not slaying mutants, but other players.
Madfinger Games is hard at work on the follow up to one of last year's blockbuster mobile games. Dead Trigger 2 is nearing completion and the developers have decided to release a few new details and drop some impressive gameplay footage on us. The video demo shows the stark difference between Nvidia's last generation mobile chip and the new Tegra 4.
Dead Trigger 2 is going to behave more like a massive online RPG by encouraging cooperation with other players. Of course, you can still go solo if that's your thing. The game will actually play out in real time, which is an intriguing concept for a mobile shooter.
