If you tuned into the BlackBerry Jam Americas keynote, then you likely saw the demo of Shadowgun being run on the screens. Now, the game has been released into BlackBerry App World and best of all, it's available as a free download. If you're big on third-person shooters, this will be one you want to add to your collection:

  • Crush, Kill, Destroy - Featuring the most advanced combat A.I. to date—enemies flank, seek cover, and utilize teamwork to take you down! Battle automated sentries, aerial drones, and other lethal foes—tactical maneuvers are based upon actual military strategy! Solve hacking mini-games to whet your nerdly appetite, then get back to blasting!
  • Console-Quality Graphics - It ain’t just pretty—it’s gorgeous! Advanced lighting effects, beautifully rendered environments, and pro voices make this one of the most advanced games for your smartphone!!
  • From the mind of a madman - Survive the onslaught of Dr. Simon’s deadly creations, including level bosses, mutated grunts, killer machines, and more!

The game comes in at just over 350MB so while it's not massive, it is something to be aware of for sure. If you're looking for the trailer to see the gameplay before you dive in, you can jump below to get a good look at it otherwise, hit the link below to download Shadowgun today.

Now, I wonder if Madfinger games will also bring Dead Trigger to the PlayBook as well.

Great!! Union has also released another good one free with 124MB - CreaVures.
Great end to weekend by this Sunday Duo from Union.
Well this after I was having addicting gaming weekend with Stick Tennis and Magic Wingdom :)

How awful is appworld when you search for "shadow" it does not find this game but finds "shadowfall."

I did find it and am downloading it - so thanks for the pointer.

koool1

Wow free? - shocking and awesome.

bambinoitaliano

And they say there's not enough games on Playbook! Slowly and surely, they are coming....love it!!

Camfella

Actually, here on Crackberry, they say "Tools Not Toys"!. It's becoming quite clear that was just jealousy talking!

Anybody else getting this message, or know what it means?

Running 2.1.0.840 Beta

shebmiller

It means you can't install in on the Beta OS: something you should expect if you have a Beta OS loaded on your device

Maybe this is the lite version?
The graphics is bad..
First i think my pb has an error or something

freya09

I agree. What Console-Quality Graphics? Yeah, they should release an HD version.

drummer_god

Restart your playbook before trying to play, and everything is fine.

-katar-

I have restarted my pb, same result, bad graphics..
FYI im running 2.1 beta

BB_Bmore

I don't see any "bad" graphics. I'm on 2.1.

playbookster

The textures are quite bad. It looks like its not finished. Its also v.03 something so its not even a stable release.

RubberChicken76

Complain, complain, complain, complain.

Power Mac

Should see the Android and iOS versions: the graphic is much better. I think they released it free because they're planning a paid-version with better graphics and possibility to download updates. At least that's what I suppose, because PlayBook has got the same graphic capability than an iPad 2 (maybe it's also more performant).

BB_Bmore

Don't go by the link here... Go to appworld tap games, tap new arrivals. Boom Done. Sometimes clicking links to appworld will do that. Idk y but it's happened to me too.

masqueofhastur

Console quality graphics sure, like late gen PS2 games...

-katar-

Wew, strange..
Some people has a problem like me, and some not..
I want to try delete the apps, and try to download it again..
I download from app world - games - new arrival, not from link on this site..

*maybe because i have low storage space?
When download this game, my free storage just 1.2GB

*update still have same result after redownloading this game, im frustating..

freya09

I've been playing Dead Trigger on my Nexus 7, but I rather play it on my PB.

desos

i have bad texture too :_(

veeru789

I don't understand all the complaints. It's a beautiful game I like it better than MC3 and it's free.

masqueofhastur

If MC3 is anything like MC2, I'd agree. Free never hurts, but it also has some issues with the controls.

Blackberry_boffin

Mine is not running. Its has a black screen. Anyone know why?

BSFA2008

I had the same problem. Did you try restarting your PB? That fixed it for me.

BTW. Graphics look good to me.

PostMortem

Yeah, there has to be something wrong. With the "its gorgeous" comment, you would expect the game to look anything but horrible. The video from the jam session looks nothing like what I am seeing on my screen. Nothing like the video posted above. The textures don't seem to be rendering properly. I'm sure they will fix this soon and am glad to see them supporting the PlayBook; especially free.

chaosdivine

Things are fixed with 1.0 update. Graphics are improved and so is splash screen and gameplay. 348MB update so grab a beer.

Rootbrian

348MB, but that is just the downloaded package size. Once it extracts and installs it, it's much larger. Free up space if you have to.

For those complaining, DELETE IT THEN. But don't give it a bad review just because it didn't work for you, or was lower than your high expectations demanded. Support the developers.
