Hitman GO Hits The Amazon Appstore: Take Out Enemies In The Mobile Puzzle Game From Square Enix
Even more mobile devices are falling into Agent 47's crosshair, as popular puzzle game Hitman GO makes its way onto Amazon's Appstore.
The mobile spin-off game has proven to be one of the more popular games that the franchise has put out in recent years. It's quite the aesthetic leap from traditional Hitman games to the minimalist style of Hitman GO. Agent 47 has officially traded in his rich, open levels and blood-splattering ways for the simpler and more light-hearted atmosphere of figurines on what's essentially a board game playing field.
Of course, he still kills his targets in cold blood, but he looks adorable while doing it.
Instead of stealth-focused, third-person gameplay, Hitman GO offers puzzle-based levels where the player needs to figure out the smartest way to complete their mission. Agent 47 still has all of his old tricks, too. He can distract enemies by making noise or slip by them in a daring disguise through 91 unlockable levels.
It may seem dicey to try to adapt an action stealth game into a turn-based puzzle game, but Agent 47 and the team at Square Enix somehow manage to pull it off while receiving fairly consistent critical praise. It's not a bad way at all to keep your assassin side sharp while we wait for Hitman 6.
Hitman GO is now available in iTunes, Google Play and its new home in the Amazon Appstore.
