GIZORAMA - In the gaming ecosystem, mobile phone games play an important role. They serve as entertainment when it’s not possible to access a dedicated gaming system like a PC or console. In general, the best mobile games are simple, addictive and accessible to a wide audience. Perfect examples of this type of game are Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies and Fruit Ninja. Ported titles occasionally succeed as well, such as XCOM: Enemy Unknown, but the limitations of mobile devices mean not every type of game works out on the platform.
Dead Effect is a first-person shooter for iOS that pits the player against various types of zombies: walkers, crawlers, sprinters, special armored zeds and spitters that attack from range. But the real enemies are the game’s awkward controls and shoddy hit detection, which detract from what could have been a decent, if not very original mobile title.
