Intense, immersive and addictive game environment
Author: Jay Feldman
Date: 22 Jul 2014, tested on ASUS Nexus 7 (2013)
Quality soundtrack, quality 3d graphics, exciting plot, exciting game play, responsive controls
Lags here and there, uses a lot of system resources, kills your battery, dependence on in-app purchases
Dead Trigger 2 for Android is a highly developed and intricate game environment. It reminds me a little of Godzilla, only this one stars a freakishly huge and foreboding super zombie, big enough to eat that stinkin’ lizard.
Dead Trigger 2 is the sequel to the hugely popular first edition of the game. In this one, you are one of the lone survivors in a desolate urban nightmare. Pretty much everyone is either dead or has been infected and converted into a flesh eating zombie. Your mission is to stay alive, survive and kill zombies bent on picking their teeth clean with your bones.
The game is played from your character’s point of view, effectively placing you inside the action and on the zombie’s dinner menu. Navigate through the streets looking for food and survivors, and when you come upon a cluster of zombies, be prepared to fight for your life. Every now and again, you catch a glimpse of Zombilla, the enormous super zombie. I don’t know how he got so big, but he’s really pissed off, and it takes a lot of tasty human flesh to fill that big’o belly.
The controls are outstanding. Swipe left and right to scan your surroundings; swipe forward and back to move. The best part is the controls work in tandem, so you can look and move at the same time, which just amps up the angst and intensity. The game presentation does an excellent job of creating tension and fear. If someone snuck up on me and screamed “boo” while I was playing, they’d probably have to peel me off the ceiling! It’s just that scary and intense.
Shooting is great because all you have to do is get your crosshairs over a zombie and the bullets fly automatically. Reloads also are automatic, but you do need to watch your ammo and find more. All the automation effectively keeps the action ramped up while still keeping you in the thick of the action.
Dead Trigger 2 is an all around killer – you’ll kill as many zombies as you do batter cells. But it’s a lot of fun, highly addictive and diabolically terrifying. Play it if you dare. Definitely not for children, much as they’d love it.
