Dead Trigger Is Now Free On Both Android And iOS Due To Piracy
Not long go, we reported to you that the FPS Dead Trigger had given up the fight and gone free on Android, due to an “unbelievably high” piracy rate. Today, it appears that Madfinger Games, the developers behind Dead Trigger have given in and made the game free on iOS as well.
So what’s going on? Does iOS have sky-high piracy rates as well, or this just a new strategy for Madfinger Games? Well, The Verge reports that according to CEO Marek Rabas, “the number of pirates on iOS is comparable with the amount of jailbroken devices.”
This should come as no shock to many users familiar with jailbreaking, considering that with a jailbroken device, pirating apps is only a few easy taps away. Apparently, Rabas is disappointed with the lack of protection both Google and Apple give to developers.
I have to say, I feel a little sorry for Madfinger Games. Game development is no easy job, especially in the competitive App Store environment, and to have the majority of your users steal all your hard work must be awfully depressing.
Regardless, stories like this really highlight the major flaws still present in the still relatively new mobile application world. The App Store is great, but it doesn’t come without its issues.
Both Apple and Google have a lot of work to do in regards to securing their stores from piracy, and hopefully we will see more progress over the next months and years.
If you’d like to read more from Madfinger’s CEO Marek Rabas, you can check out his thoughts on the App Store and piracy over at GameZebo.
Also, go ahead and grab Dead Trigger in the iOS App Store for free.
