September 28, 2011, Brno, Czech Republic – Beginning today, gamers around the world will never look at mobile games the same as Shadowgun, one of the most anticipated iOS games of 2011, hits the App Store, ushering in a new era of mobile gameplay graphics. The game, developed and published by MadFinger Games, is available for $7.99, and provides 10 levels of action and excitement, with console-quality visuals.
The most advanced handheld game on the market, Shadowgun, authored with the Unity development platform, combines tactical combat with third-person action. The game puts players into the role of John Slade, a professional bounty hunter in the year 2350. Slade’s mission: hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon, renowned geneticist and former employee of the trans-galactic corporation Toltech Enterprises. Players must lead “shadowgun” John Slade as he infiltrates Dr. Simon’s mountain fortress and fights his personal army of mutants, cyborgs, and genetically-enhanced humanoids.
Currently available for iOS devices including iPad 1, iPad2, iPhone 3GS/4G and iPod 4, Shadowgun will be available for Android devices beginning in early October. The game will support Android mobile devices including those powered by the NVIDIA Tegra super chip and will be available on the Tegra Zone app and Android Market.
“Shadowgun pushes the boundaries of what is possible graphically on today’s mobile devices,” said Marek Rabas, president of Madfinger Games. “Once a gamer picks up Shadowgun and experiences the amazing visuals, combined with the fast-paced, immersive gameplay, they will never be able to look at mobile games the same.”
”Unity has been thrilled to work so closely with Madfinger to help Shadowgun develop into one of the most exciting and beautiful games across any mobile platform,” said Unity Tecnologies CEO David Helgason “It’s awesome to be at the forefront of next-gen mobile gaming.”
Madfinger is also developing an even more enhanced version supporting NVIDIA’s Project Kal-El, the next-generation Tegra quad-core processor. The special version of Shadowgun will be optimized for multi-core processors and will take advantage of the processing and graphics power of Project Kal-El. The Android version will also support non-Tegra devices.

Doesn’t everyone love the Apple image? Did you know your iPod was built by a child in a forced labor camp? Still love the image? I found this article today Apple admits using child labour – Telegraph and I’ve got to say that I find it sickening.
This isn’t the evil Google, Microsoft, or Intel. This is everyone’s beloved Apple. This is the most politically correct company to ever grace the face of the earth, or so they’d like us to believe. And here they are engaged in the cruelest business practice one can think of. No, i guess I can think of worse. What’s next, knee-capping people who fall behind on their App Store payments?
So think of the little 10 year old boy who built your iPhone the next time you use it. How much cruelty are you perpetuating when you buy Apple’s products? Not only is this incongruous with their oh-so-carefully managed image, but it shows you what they’re capable of.
Before you jump to Apple’s defense, let me point out a few other things. Last year one of their employees committed suicide after leaving their Chinese plant. A few weeks ago workers in another one of their Chinese factories were exposed to n-hexane, a dangerous chemical that can cause you to go blind. And let’s not forget that Apple was also nailed last year for illegally disposing of electronics instead of taking care of the environment like they should.
So, what’s it going to be? Do you care about Apple’s human rights abuses? Or did they spray n-hexane in your eyes also so now you’re blind to their employment practices?
