    Stupendous mobile game graphics, a powerful collection of weapons and equipment, mowing down zombies and seeing their heads splatter, affordably-priced in-app cash and gold, surprisingly responsive first-person controls.

    As expected, Dead Trigger ups the graphics bar and provides a nice variety of weaponry and perks, though many will require a little extra monetary investment to use.

    Dead Trigger is an incredible piece of software from a technical point of view, but while it shines on graphical power it lacks in inspiration.

    Dead Trigger surely hits a few spots: it's cheap, it has amazing graphics and it's also pretty fun for a while. Unfortunately, it is also extremely repetitive and its controls can be irritatingly unresponsive.

    Dead Trigger is totally braindead and quickly gets boring, but you'll find enough enjoyment for your 69p. In-app purchases and ill-thought-out controls can spoil the fun.

    The visuals are absolutely captivating, and are an excellent inexpensive way to showcase just how beautiful games could be on the new iPad. However, as a game, Dead Trigger just falls flat in terms of implementation offering the same dull freemium-based experience that we've seen before.

    Dead trigger is an amazing mobile game. Boasting good portable graphics and a nice interface. PLEASE DO NOT COMPARE THIS TO NORMAL CONSOLE ZOMBIE GAMES as this game is one of the most diverse ipad games there are. You can get this game for an amazing price of £0.00. Which is good. Only one criticism however. The controls are quite awkward as it is hard to look around, move and shoot at the same time. Apart from this THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    The game is pretty much like a prequel to Contract Killer :Zombies
    The games graphics are alright but seems to crash often. Most of the guns
    require you to spend real cash even if you have to pay for the game. Once you progress through the levels it gets increasingly tougher forcing you to buy better guns [most require you to pay real cash]
    Not an impressive game, you'll stop playing it after a week maybe.

    It's not hard to be deceived into thinking that this might be a good game considering its got impressive graphics and it's free to boot, but make no mistake that this game isn't worth your time. What kills the experience is the controls and the fact that in-app purchases are pretty much required in order to progress. The game plays well enough when you're just standing still and blowing the heads off of zombies, but it all goes to hell the moment you are required to move through levels because turning in this game is awkward and unresponsive. This is mostly due to the fact that the button you use to fire is on the same side of the screen, so when a zombie when a zombie is around a corner or coming up behind you, you have to fight to get the screen to turn and then shoot. This leads to a lot of frustrating deaths. The in-app purchases require you to buy gold in order to unlock more weapons. The game rewards you with gold occasionally, but it will take countless hours in order to be able to amass enough to buy a new weapon. This would be ok if the game didn't require you to buy these new weapons in order to face the increasing difficulty, but unfortunately it does which is a way the game becomes a pay to win experience. It's a little sad that this game ends up doing so much wrong, because the idea of a free zombie FPS shooter sounded too good to be true. Expand

    a boring zombie-shooter. Great graphics, a lot of weapons, but awful game play..

    Fun at times, but it is hindered by the constant feeling of needing to spend real money in order to actually be able to play through the game. I paid for it, so the fact that I bought it should not be taken advantage of by the developer. Expand
