I have to agree that Dead space is an amazing iOS game and is in my top 5 favourite iOS games. Amazing atmosphere.
To me, this is a full flege zombie game. There are many types of zombie games, just because it isn't as as atmospheric, doesn't make it an action game.
If you look at Desert zombie on iOS. Definately not scary, it has a lot of action, but still a zombie game.
You know that might be something Madfinger could work on, ... a creepy type of map kind of like a ( Nacht der Untoten) with lots of atmosphere? It is actually good constructive criticism. I think Madfinger is very capable of this.
I still think it's very unfair to compare a console game like Left for Dead 2 to Dead Trigger on iOS though.
Wait, what? "Zombie game" is a genre now? It's a theme, sure, not a game genre.
And yeah, Dead Trigger is an arcade action title, through and through, and there's no problem with that. It's an action title that happens to revolve around zombies. Just like Dead Space is a survival horror with aliens, and that doesn't make the genre of that game to be called "alien game".
The thing is, when you see an action title featuring zombies you usually expect a horror game of sorts, which is not the case with Dead Trigger. There's no problem with that, people only need to adapt their expectations and judge the game on what it attempts to be and not what the person was expecting. So, if you can't wait to see what's on your side (to quote one of the posters), the title fails as a survival horror but succeeds as an action title. And since Dead Trigger never attempts to be a survival horror, it succeeds in what it sets out to do, which is an arcade action title.
