(Call of Dead: Duty Trigger 14)

Looking for the hottest action games? We’ve got all the bullets, blood, enemies, and action you crave. These are the best Android action games of June 2014.


1. Call of Dead: Duty Trigger 14

Check out the video above to see this game in action. (Note that the audio commentary is in Hebrew, but the game itself is being played in English.)

If you love aliens, action, and first-person shooters, the frenetic sci-fi carnage of Call of Dead: Duty Trigger 14 will get your heart pumping. Boasting an environment that’s not unlike Starship Troopers, this violent game has some scary enemies peppered throughout the atmospheric setting of a ruined city. There’s also an undead element here as well, with “zombie arachnids” being a featured enemy in the game.
