Zynga Launches Mobile Gaming's Answer to Battlefield Heroes

Available today on iOS and coming soon to Android, The Respawnables is Zynga's first mobile multiplayer online shooter, bearing a striking resemblance to a pair of popular PC games.

Developer Digital Legends worked on the mobile version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, so drawing a little inspiration from the cartoony free-to-play PC entry in the franchise is understandable. Teams of up to eight players can battle against each other in maps that bring to mind Valve's Team Fortress 2 or go crazy in an online free-for-all match. Online play earns experience points and cash, the latter invested in hundreds of pieces of equipment, decorative and functional alike. It's derivative, but in a welcome sort of way.

It also plays quite well, even if I keep getting killed by an asshole with dual pistols.

tablet and mobile shooters never really interest me, it's because you can't control the camera and shoot at the same time. Maybe if it has a back touch pad to replace the trigger button it will work.
