Pocket Gamer reports that Dead Trigger 2 has received a massive update. It adds a new Chinese environment, which features a single-player story and warfare missions. The update also celebrates Christmas time with new special limited-time Christmas presents for players to earn.
Madfinger Games has recently announced the official release date for their zombie-blasting sequel, Dead Trigger 2, and it’s just a little more than a month away.
The zombie-laden shooter sequel will have a “real time” story that is affected by the interaction and performance of all its players. Each update will shuffle locations around and otherwise change up events based around how everybody performs. Neat!
Madfinger Games announced its plans to bring forth a world on the verge of a global zombie apocalypse. Dead Trigger 2 is on its way, offering an experience with much higher ambitions than the previous title. Players will dive into a parallel world where humanity continues to battle a zombie plague that has been going on for the past two years.
“The first time you play Dead Trigger 2, you become part of a global conflict. You are not alone and you are not playing only for yourself. You are one of many survivors across continents and from different parts of the world,” said the co-founder of Madfinger Games, Marek Rabas, in a press release.“While there are individual objectives within the context of the game, you must align your efforts together with other players to fulfill a joint global objective.”

Black Friday Survival Guide: Halloween is just about to pass by, which means we will all soon be stuffing our faces with turkey, cranberries, and pies in preparation for one heck of a day. You know, Black Friday! Sazze has taken it upon themselves to assist you with all those early flyer leaks, deals, and shopping tasks during this maddening time.

MADFINGER Games are bringing their iPhone and iPod touch hack ‘n slash game Samurai: Way of the Warrior to the iPad as the creatively titled Samurai: Way of the Warrior HD. Featuring detailed cel-shaded graphics and a smooth gameplay engine to match, this game has you playing as a samurai who is out to cut his enemies into tiny bits using his sword. There are no puzzles to solve, all you’re doing is just finding and killing your enemies, just trying to survive and advance.
The controls of Samurai: way of the Warrior HD are the most questionable aspect of the game so far. Movement takes some time to get used to, but it’s easiest to just tap to where you need to go. The combat controls have upwards and sideways motions that you can chain together for combos. Early on in the game, you can just wildly swipe about the screen and have success destroying enemies, but soon you’ll unlock combos and they will be necessary to defeat the more challenging enemies you run into. The slash inputs are often inaccurate, especially when slashing from side to side, so sometimes, just kind of swiping like mad and hoping you pull off a combo works better than actual controlled attempts at executing specific combos.
There’s the standard campaign mode with three playable difficulties, along with a selection of Dojos to fight in, that let you fight endless numbers of enemies in an arena until you die, along with online leaderboards via AGON Online for all game modes. Samurai: Way of the Warrior HD will be available on Friday, July 1st for the iPad.
Last week, as most of you know, Rockstar Games announced that it was porting its critically acclaimed GTA: Chinatown Wars to the iPhone. Not only is this great news for fans of the game, though we do already have the superb Gangstar, but it also shows how seriously the iPhone is taken as a gaming platform. Rockstar is not a company to make gratuitous ports for every platform available (I don’t think the Wii will be getting GTA anytime soon), so this upcoming port shows that Rockstar believes in the power of the iPhone. If Rockstar will port GTA for the iPhone, what other big-name developers will follow? The days of the iPhone being a phone that you could play some gimmicky accelerometer games on are over. Sony, I would be afraid.
New ngmoco FPS trailer, now called Eliminate, reveals the use of micro-transactions
Ngmoco has released a new trailer for their upcoming Eliminate, and while the game is looking awesome, most people are fixating on another detail: you will only be able to play so many matches online for credits in one day, and if you want to play for credits again without waiting a day, you have to buy an “energy pack” using real money. So what’s the big deal? Well if you ask me, as long as ngmoco doesn’t abuse this, nothing. Here’s the kicker: if you run out of energy, you can still play online, you just won’t win credits. So the only people who will buy extra energy are the perfectionists who have to show how good they are. For people like me, who just want to play a game to have fun (isn’t that what a game is for), you can play however much you want and still have fun. So really, this is a great idea as long as two things hold true: the game is not originally priced above $6.99 and the amount of energy you get per day is reasonable. What do you guys think? Sound off in our comments below.
C64 Emulator finally approved by Apple
After months of back room deals, Apple rejections, and Apple non-communication, Manomio has finally gotten their superb C64 emulator has been approved! Obviously this won’t appeal to everyone, but if you’re one for nostalgia, at $4.99, it’s worth picking up because of the high level of polish and solid controls. The emulator comes with five fully licensed games, but no BASIC emulator as was originally included, though it’s apparently suspiciously easy to enable the BASIC if you’re SSH savvy. Future games will be available via DLC at prices to be determined by the original IP holders. Next up, Manomio, a legal Atari emulator (I wish)!

Modern Combat: Sandstorm
Modern Combat is the most visually impressive title on the iPhone to date, bar none. Models are good, textures are sharp, and everything is fully and accurately 3D. Not only this, but Gameloft actually nailed the controls, a first for an FPS on the iPhone. The gameplay, specifically the AI and level structure leave something to be desired, but Sandstorm remains a great accomplishment nonetheless, and it comes with a solid recommendation at the low price of $6.99.
Samurai: Way of the Warrior
Samurai is one of the coolest games I’ve played on the iPhone. It’s a hack-and-slasher with great graphics, perfect controls, and gratuitous blood! Controls involve different combinations of swipes, and the gameplay is actually somewhat strategic – you have to balance small attacks with huge combos, because if you miss a huge combo, you leave yourself very prone to an attack. Execute moves correctly, and you might be lucky enough to see the body of the opponent samurai stop, then fall on the ground in two pieces, with blood squirting across the screen. Samurai comes with both a story mode and an endless or “dojo” mode. My only complaints about this game are that once you figure out the controls, it’s too easy – there’s an uneven difficulty curve, and that it does get repetitive at times. Still, I found myself playing this $2.99 gem much more than Sandstorm. Expect a full review soon, but until then, you really have to see a video to appreciate the awesomeness of this game.
