A little over a month ago, MadFinger Games released a new trailer for their zombie blasting sequel to Dead Trigger, along with a release date of October 23rd. If you don't happen to have a calendar handy, let me help you out: today is October 23rd and Dead Trigger 2 [Free] has officially launched in the App Store.

So far, early impressions in our forums suggest that, just like the first game, Dead Trigger 2 is a graphical showpiece. There is a greater emphasis on story this time around, though it will take some time playing to discover if it really is an improvement over the first game's repetitive nature of shooting wave after wave of zombies in confined areas. There are also encounters with massive bosses, a "Hideout" where you can unlock and upgrade tons of new weapons and items, and for some reason there are lots and lots of chickens. Grenade chickens, rocket launcher chickens, and machine-gun mounted chickens. Huh.

If you were a fan of the first game then this definitely seems like an improvement in many ways, but even if you just like pretty games or blasting away at zombies there's no reason not to check out Dead Trigger 2 for yourself seeing as it's free. Again, it'll take some time playing to see just how the free-to-play elements are implemented. Also an Android version should be hitting within hours, and down the line MadFinger hopes to include online multiplayer functionality to the game. Be sure to check out Dead Trigger 2 to and head into our forums to let us know what you think.

    Do u need to play one to get two

    • deadlock32

      What do u mean?

      • rewyan

        He means does he need to play the first game to understand this one.

      • Suji

        I thought it was a buy one take one.

    • deadlock32

      Each person needs to have a game on their own device to play multiplayer. However, the online support isnt available at the moment. It may come in a update.

    • zergslayer69

      If you mean story, this isn't an RPG. It's mainly just shooting up waves of zombies in a level, and then doing it again in a different level. There's nothing to "get" really.

        Just downloaded and it is amazing

      • loophole

        Yeah that's what I'd expect. The story seems rlly generic but I guess u aren't playing dead trigger to listen to a story

    • lll Anubis lll

      The first one was about a zombie outbreak that required multiple bullets or blunt objects to kill the walkers. The end. No you will be fine forget that the first existed.

  • deadlock32

    Online multiplayer support.. Finally like call of duty zombies

    • PresidentZer0


      • deadlock32

        No the option isnt available at the moment. They said it will come in an update..

    Guess this franchise into the either love it or hate it category. I'm in the hate it.

    First one was chocked with freemium BS, boring, repetitive, closed off and generally uninspired in every aspect. But it was pretty and there are tons of people who see nothing beyond graphics.

    Unless there are some seriously drastic changes to what was a one-note arena shooter. I'll be avoiding this game like the zombie plague.

    • PresidentZer0

      You are save to pass this one

    • Wedge598

      I actually thought the first one was the first reasonably priced freemium game I'd played in long time. I spent $2 on the IAP gold and that was just enough to get me one of the top guns. With that I finish the campaign missions and played until I got bored of the others. Never felt the need to spend any more money.

  • CzechCongo

    Requires iOS 7.

    • shadax

      I was able to download on 6.1.2

  • iOSPeace

    This sucks it requires iOS 7. My iPad 2 is jail broken and I want to play it on there but don't want to update

    • Panzerbush

      I guess it's "Choose Your Own Adventure" time for you, huh?

    • Nekkedsnake

      ditto. im JBed on 4S. too bad cuz i wanted this.

  • bored2death

    I'm actually quite liking this one...coming from somebody that found the first game an absolute bore. It's still a bit similar to the first with bite sized missions. But it tends to mix things up a bit in terms of gameplay. Been playing it since it came out in nz. Which isn't quite long but so far it seems quite awesome 🙂

  • iValerio90

    This game is a pathented sh*t! F**K FREEMIUM AND FREEMIUM DEVELOPERS!

    • Jake7905

      There's a reasonable opinion.

    • dariusjr98

      Please, I'm asking nicely, stop. You're a broken record, and by now everyone who comments on here knows who you are. No need to "spread the message" any further.

        *cough* "idiot" *cough

      • iValerio90

        I dont give a..u know the rest

      • dariusjr98

        Now that wasn't very necessary.

  • chamillion205

    It sucks this game need iOS 7 support. It worked for me and I still run my on iOS 6. It did pork for the first level, which was actually fun. Not fun enough to give up my jailbreak tho. Worth a look.

  • Boris Nguetie

    the game should have been released first before ios7 and yet its the minimum required os??? isn't this a bit STUPID?? that and the permanent internet connection! i m curious to see how it'll perform on the market.

    • Jake7905

      That required connection kills it for me.

    • Suji

      To me to, ever since that greyed wifi showed up.
      I'm on ios7 though.

  • Deixa

    Good graphics and game RUINED by...

    1. Requires internet to play
    2. Timers
    3. iAP (no surprise)

    • deadlock32

      Da faq? It requires internet?

    • Tobey

      Well it is a NO NO for me like the 1st one, cause it requires internet connection too.

  • Zeillusion

    This game is awesome, 3-5$ can get you enough resources / currency to play the game out through the end. I don't understand you people, I'm loving it. This is a quality mobile game, how do you expect them to pay their workers? How do you expect the company to service? This is easily a 7$-10$ game. You can pay for free but might have to log once in awhile for your weapons to finish. Whoop-di-doo , great job madfinger, loving the game.

  • Taclys

    Dead Trigger 1 was an IAP nightmare, how's this?

    • Boris Nguetie

      an iap nightmare witht timers, permanent internet connection required and ios 7 and up only!

    • themostunclean

      From what I've read, the nightmare continues.

  • sakara214ever

    So i can finish this game without iap? I do not mind to wait for timers.

  • avoid_lokz

    Why is it only ios 7 ?? Plz let it be for ios 6 tooo i dont even like ios 7

  • avoid_lokz

    Its bull****

  • Dan Piotrowski

    Ok, first off, I don't like the fact that I have to be online every single time I want to play. Secondly, for some reason, the game will not allow me to play past the second mission (rescuing the toolbox). Anyone else having this problem?

  • PresidentZer0

    Kinda sucks that we have to wait for multiplayer...

  • Cesar Ramirez

    You lost me at "In-App Purchase"

    • rednekzomby

  • cruz30

    The game is really good, and if people are stupid enough t not play this because of a comment written by a wanna bee reviewer, then your just as stupid! Everybody has an opinion, but opinions are like assholes..........!!!!! Congrats Madfinger!!! Great job!!!
