Trigger Happy Review

Oct 31, 2014

Lunagames launched a Halloween-themed shooter for Android, but is it worth you time? Well, that depends: do you like murdering zombies?

Trigger Happy from Lunagames is a straightforward action packed shooter. In it, you need to shoot every zombie or other Halloween themed monstrosity that’s coming right for you. You can do that with just your handgun, including unlimited ammo – the way I prefer to play my Halloween/horror games. But that won’t do the job in Trigger Happy.

So luckily, when you play the game, you can earn all sorts of bonuses. One of them is earning coins by shooting at them when they lay down on the ground, right after they popped out of the zombie you just killed. With those coins, you can upgrade your current weapon or buy new ones – and if you want the special weapons, you can always throw some real money at the screen. But that is optional, as I did not get the feeling the game forced me to do so.

But before you can start upgrading your stuff, you need to get a lot of points to raise you level. Because at higher levels, you can get better weapons. It is as simple as that. For a free game, it actually has been balanced out – putting fun at the first place. And that is something I can really enjoy in a free-to-play video game.

The only thing I didn’t like about Trigger Happy from Lunagames is that I stood still on one point. There wasn’t a moment where I could move – either automatic or normal – and I thought that was a shame. The action feels kind of static now and therefore the game can be repetitive at a faster rate than normal. Which is a shame. Because if you’re looking for a fun little Halloween game, which doesn’t charge you for every move and let’s you have fun with every fired bullet, you can give this game a chance.
