After launching a couple of weeks ago on Windows and for Facebook users, Madfinger Games has now made their multiplayer shooter, Shadowgun: Deadzone, available for the Mac. The free-to-play title is already popular on both iOS and Android, and now Mac gamers can join the party, playing against mobile and Windows gamers at the same time.
The cross-platform multiplayer nature is just one of the great things about Shadowgun: Deadzone, since you can go to any supported device, sign in, and pick up right where you left off. It also means there's always plenty of opponents to pick off. Controls are simple, using keyboard and mouse for moving, aiming and shooting, though be sure to check the sensitivity first. Gameplay modes are standard, kill-em-all Deathmatch, and when you reach rank 4, you unlock the Zone Control mode.
The free-to-play nature is sure to fill some with dread, but as you play the game you earn XP and currency on every kill. You can top this up with in-app purchases for real cash money, but it depends how far you want to take it. There's also an option to upgrade to a premium account for differing lengths of time which nets you more rewards as you play. But you have to pay for that.
All told, Shadowgun: Deadzone has transitioned to the Mac perfectly. It looks pretty good, is simple to pick up and play, and is all round just a fun multiplayer game. I generally suck at these type of games, so I don't play them, but I do like this one. I'm interested to hear what you guys think, though. How well do you think this has made the jump from mobile to Mac?
