Dead Trigger has proved very popular on iOS and this new Android version looks set to repeat its success.
Of course Android apps have to cater for a much wider range of devices than the walled garden of iOS hardware so, as might be expected, some early users have found minor bugs in this initial launch (e.g. it was not tested on Sony Ericsson devices).
Expect updates to be released in the near future to address glitches on specific phones or tablets.
