Belarusian blogger Maxim Poletaev, known under the pseudonym Gabe Follower, figured outwhich is the mysterious Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile, lit up on the website of the Australian rating agency.
The Australian Classification entry on Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile immediately aroused suspicion: general (“for all ages”) rating instead of “adult”, CB&AKG Games as publisher and developer instead of Valve. The fears were not in vain.
As Gabe Follower found out, Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile really exists and is even available in Play Markethowever, from the real Left 4 Dead 2 in it, except that the model of the Trainer standing in a t-shaped position.
At a poorly recreated level of the original Left 4 Dead 2, the mobile “adaptation” features strangely scaled cars, a bunch of mannequins standing in the same T-shaped pose, and a very loud sound of footsteps on the pavement.
Left 4 Dead 2 Mobile was apparently created to lure unsuspecting fans of Valve’s zombie shooter and then extract money from them (after the countdown at the top of the screen, the game offers to subscribe).
The only Valve engine adapted to work on mobile devices is Source 2, so the likelihood of full-fledged mobile versions of old (on a different engine) games from the studio is extremely small.
Left 4 Dead 2 debuted in November 2009 on PC and Xbox 360. Over the past almost 13 years since then, the cooperative zombie shooter has only managed to get to macOS (October 2010) and Linux (July 2013).
