Left 4 Dead 2 is now available on mobile devices, but it's a scam ...

Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile is a dream come true. Of all the ways to spend time on a busy commute, or while you're protesting Half-Life 3, teaming up with three pals to once again tear through Valves' iconic survival horror game sounds like the best. However, be aware that this is not the same FPS you know from Steam.

On September 2, Left 4 Dead 2 was officially certified for mobile release in Australia, and a quick browse through mobile stores displays a wide array of different versions, supposedly of the co-op zombie shooter originally released back in 2009. To labour a simile, downloading this game would be like firing your shotgun right next to the Witch youll quickly regret it.

Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile, as captured by Valve aficionado and content creator GabeFollower, is nothing but a scam, shovelware game intended to deceive unsuspecting horror enthusiasts. This isnt even a game, as such. All you seem to be able to do is walk around a poorly rendered, T-posing version of The Coach.

If you see Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile anywhere, run a mile and lock yourself in a safe area. The vehicles are strangely scaled so that you feel like a giant, and the entire level is littered with ugly, also T-posing mannequins, which blankly stare at you as you walk around, generating an extremely loud stock footstep sound effect.

While we are not sure what exactly happened to Half-Life 3, there have been some changes since a few leaked, legacy graphics for an initial version of the game, and you can still keep the dream alive by following our guide to everything we know about Half-Life 3. Alternately, try some of the best horror games on PC, or perhaps some of the best multiplayer games, which we promise are significantly superior to Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile.
