Apart from this: Can Dead Effect 2 convince as a first person shooter?
Dead Effect 2: Extensive first-person shooter for smartphone / tablet
If you like first-person shooter, you should take a look at least once at Dead Effect 2 that plays much differently than, say, Dead Trigger 2. So you learn in the first Mission to control the game, know how you move and how opponents are killed. Another big plus is the extensive storyline. Although this is only available in English, but completely contained as audio track. You can also talk to people and so advance the storyline.
In Dead Effect 2 you have to choose from different weapons to compete against different enemies that attack you. During the game you not only have to fight against individual undead, but also against large groups. Some zombies even shoot blood balls at you, that cause damage, if you take hits.
Frequently, there are also only tasks such as “Tap this button” and similar. On the way through the mission, there are also hiding objects and spaces in which objects or money can be collected. At the end of a mission, it is displayed how successful you were and what trophy you get out of many evaluation criteria.

Download the first-person shooter for free
When you hear that a game is downloaded for free, of course, you immediately ask the question of financing.
