  • better than Samurai ?
  • This game's apparently awesome, hence the writer has written about it before the developer officially releases it.
  • FINALLY! Love the graphics!
  • Best FPS currently on Windows phone?
  • No.
  • What is?
  • Maybe modern combat 5 or blitz brigade.
  • Gameloft made..mc5 free for both android and iOS..!
  • Yes, just because you can't download it doesn't mean it isn't the best FPS on Windows Phone.
  • We just got started
  • Yayyyy, downloading
  • WHY YOU DO DIS?!?!?!?! LOVE FOR 512 MB RAM :/
  • The game is way too hardcore for 512mb devices.
  • Aham so a crapdroid with 512 ram play it but quad core 1.2 can't?
  • I ran it (like crap) on a sub 512mb android. I think in a future update it can happen.
  • Currently rocking a Snapdragon 800 "crapdroid" device and I haven't been playing intense 3D games for over an year now. But I remember waiting up till 3 in the morning for the original Dead Trigger to launch and I purchased the original one(before it became free), and it ran pretty well on my 600 MHz single core 512 MB "crapdroid." Not sure how the second generation of Dead Trigger would work on that device, but there's no denying that in terms of gaming it's: Android > Windows Phone Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Yeh sux...waiting for MS Lumia 640 to arrive here so I don't have the 512 ram limit
  • You got a low budget phone. What do you seriously expect. You're lucky they update highly technical games to 512mb. If its not out now just give it time... Or buy a phone with 1gig of ram or more..
  • 1 gb ram is the standard as of now soon Lumias with Snapdragon S4 like L920,1020,820 will not be supporting mid-high end games even having 1-2 gigs of ran due to old processor. Microsoft is no more sincere in optimising its own ecosystem with lags(resuming),app updates,music app. Honestly speaking i don't expect too much from Microsoft just expect them to be par with the features which iOS,Android has. Microsoft is dumb really dumb instead of optimizing it just pushes more powerful specs which are of no use because it is not optimised.
  • Does it need a 930/1520 or will it run acceptably on slower phones like the 830?
  • Best way to find out is to install and run it yourself.
  • 500MB+ is quite a download for a test :)
  • Runs fine on a 535.
  • Just fine with lags? Or just fine fine?
  • Fine Fine. Smoothie.
  • nothing much, i usually test my 10gb game on my PC with the same wifi
  • 830 has the needed power!
  • I would be surprised if the game looked and played good on the 830. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Is it that bad?
  • What was it made you think like that?
  • It looks and plays amazing on the 830.
  • can play on 920 with medium graphic pretty good with no lags
  • Another major app leaving windows phone is dying!!oh no damn sorry!!
  • Wtf?
  • +720
    WTF
  • You have Down or something?
  • It was sarcasm
  • It was the last joke of April fool. He wants us to remember.
  • Idiot
  • Wow, nice addition.
  • downloading ! Awesome !!
  • No 512mb? Sucks.
  • Need to sell my 720 soon. Had a sweet time with it. Lovely phone. But I'm waiting for Microsoft's flagship in may that's y I'm not in a haste to buy Lumia 930.
  • Get a 1520
  • Achievements as in Xbox live achievements ?
  • No.
  • In the future maybe
  • Make for 512
  • Infinite Loading  on Main Menu on lumia 925
  • Hope it'll run smoothly on 1020.
  • It's laggy, when it comes to the Real mission. :( im 1020 too
  • Cannot play the game on my Lumia 1520. Infinite loading when I press to play the game; cannot create an account, it says on "creating account" for infinite time
  • The developers are extremely active, they'll fix it.
  • Oh great

  • First game by Madfinger Games. They make good games. Hope more to come.
  • Anyone try Moga yet??
  • Excellent, can't wait to download.
  • Damn game wont dl for me starts then just says pending about a quarter of the way thru
  • Can't wait to play this!
  • Finally... Need to get me a new phone ... Lumia 640xl when are you launching in Ghana??
  • How to pair Xbox one controller to windows phone
  • Runs smoothly on my Lumia 525..,
  • I had a choice between lumia 520 nd 525, went with 525,it cost Rs 2500 more than 520, my decision was right!
  • I already know Microsoft always release big games only for 1gb ram device. But 512mb ram android phones running all big games.
  • It's running like crap on 512MB Android.
  • Oh really then how does iPhone 4s run this with 1ghz dual core and512mb ram?
  • I don't have an iPhone but Asphalt 8 is laggy on my friend's iPhone 4S
  • download stuck at pending since the story 1st broke....
  • Having the same issue.
  • Download the XAP/APPX file manually via your PC and store on SD card of your phone. Install and enjoy.
  • Is it any good? I don't want to download it yet, it seems too heavy
  • How to connect Moga Pro to this game?
  • Grrrr
  • 512 MB ram phone are always last,why? I cant download this game 1 gb ram. Go to hell
  • Will it support 512MB devices in the upcoming updates?
  • Hope they'll include 512 mb in the upcoming updates
  • what abt 512mb devices??? M using lumia 720
  • It's stuck pending o.0
  • Can be played in offline na ????
  • Nope! You need an internet connection to play this game. Make sure a high speed internet :)
  • Não consigo baixar no meu lumia 830, só fica em " pendente "
  • I can't get my moga to work on my L830 running W10:TE. I'm gonna try it on my L92 running 8.1 Lumia Denim...
  • I knew dat it wont be available for 512mb ram devices
  • When I see articles regarding games I first scroll to the bottom of the article to see the last pic about no 512 mb support, then I close the article without reading.
  • I think it's a great shame that you can't play this game if you are not connected to the internet. It defeats the object of a mobile gaming device. I never use the data connection on my phone, due to the costs. If I am at home and connected to wi-fi, I'll be playing on my Xbox.
  • For that way I always take the flagship lumia phones. Good graphics on 930.
  • Any 1020 user downloaded it??
  • I used to play this game on a Samsung Galaxy S Plus with 512MB de ram when it came out on Android and when i did not have a Lumia yet. Hence I see no reason to not be able to play it here. Please just make the effort.
  • WHEN IN INDIA?!!!!
  • YES, FINALLY!
  • Awesome gane! Amazing graphics nd gameplay! Running smoothly!
  • Hi i dont see the game dead trigger 2 in the store, is the game officially released
    Gesh

  • Switch off phone nd switch it on again, worked for me( it stayed on pending for a hour), will consume 940 mb when installed
  • What sort of device is needed to get High graphics? There's a medium and low option.
  • Finally Downloaded Truly Awesome game graphics
  • Bring it for 512mb ram phones,my Nokia Lumia 520 can handle it better than Microsoft Lumia 535.......remember asphalt 8 lag 535 users?
  • (Authentification en cours) ca ne marche plus
  • Hi Its not available in India when this game will be updated u have any idea
    Hesh
  • J'ai installé le jeu mais quand je toucher (jouer) il s'affiche authentification en cours
  • Too bad that you can play only with your Smartphone United States region and language English...i with Ukraine...
  • Lags a little on my L730
  • Lags on my 820 after 10 minutes or so of gameplay, graphics set to low. Phone becomes hot as coal and I think that's the reason why it starts lagging.. Sometimes it lags so much that touch screen doesn't seem to respond to input..
  • This game is awesome! But the control is unresponsive too many times... And I cannot update the game. It keeps showing me an error code...
  • The only thing that sucks about this game you can't walk around like you can on Android and IOS that pissed me off!!!!!
  • Anybody successfully connect and play using a Moga Pro Power controller? If so, steps.
