This is something that is really really really well made. Just when you are starting you get welcome at a very simple and nice looking home menu. The settings have everything you need: FX/music on/off, iCloud synchronization, sending feedback, purchases (up to $15), restore the complete game and credits. When you start to play you will get a big surprise: It looks like a board game! But there is more: The sounds, the details at the figures, even the weather situation is great! So I like this design a lot. I give it 10/10 points again.
You are playing an agent who must get to a destination or have to kill a person. This isn’t as easy as it hears like because you have to pass bodyguards which aren’t standing very ideal (:D). I give it 7/10 points because it isn’t a very special story but it makes sense.
The idea is simple. Swipe from your agent in the possible direction and you will arrive there. One great thing: Everything is smooth and it makes really fun to play. Especially on a tablet. So I give it 10/10 points!
There are seven level packs which are in around 10 to 15 levels large. To be honest when I started playing I didn’t have a plan what should I do. So sometimes you need time to finish one level because they get heavier and heavier. Two packs are inspired by “Hitman: Blood Money“ and “Hitman 2: Silent Assassin“. In each level you have three mission. The first is killing the target, the second is to catch the briefcase and the last is usually to do less traits than 12, 20, etc. But sometimes you have to kill all bodyguards or even the opposite. Unfortunately you get for each solved mission points. Why unfortunately? Because you can just get a new level pack with these points and trust me this isn’t easy. So I give it here 8/10.
Hitman Go is one of the best games I’ve ever played. Sure, it isn’t easy but with the right tactic and enough expierence you will get better and better. And for only $0.99 can’t do something wrong. Complete point conclusion: 8.75/10
