Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile sounds like a dream. Of all the ways to pass the time on your busy commute or while you’re camped out outside your local game store to protest the demise of Half-Life 3, team up with three friends to go through the iconic horror game once again on valve survival sounds like the best. But if you see this in the App Store, stay away – it’s not the beloved FPS you know from Steam.
Left 4 Dead 2 has apparently been officially certified for a mobile release in Australia on September 2nd, and a quick scan of the mobile stores reveals a number of different versions of what is believed to be the co-op zombie shooter that originally launched back in 2009. You might be tempted, especially considering that some of the versions are offered for free, but in comparison, downloading this game would be like firing a shotgun next to the Witch – you’ll soon regret it.
According to Valve enthusiast and content creator GabeFollower, Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile is nothing more than a scam game designed to lure unsuspecting horror fans. It’s not even a game as such. It seems like all you can do is walk through a really bad reconstruction of one of the Left 4 Dead 2 levels and stare at a version of the Trainer with a barely textured T position.

None of the objects have hit detection, the vehicles are strangely scaled so you feel like a giant, and the entire “level” is littered with ominous T-position mannequins that stare blankly at you as you walk, creating an extremely loud footsteps sound effect. I guess it’s kind of a horror game, but it’s highly unlikely that anyone is going to download it. So, don’t get caught – if you see Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile anywhere, run a mile and barricade yourself in a safe room.
However, when it comes to Half-Life 3, there have been some recent developments thanks to some leak, outdated artwork for the initial version of the game, and you can still keep the dream alive by checking out our guide to everything we know about Half-Life 3. Alternatively, if you’ve got that Left 4 Dead 2 itch again, try some of the The best horror games for the computeror maybe some of the the best multiplayer gameswhich we promise are much better than Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile.
