Available to download right now on the iTunes app store and coming soon to Google Play, is Hitman GO, the turn-based puzzle game from Square Enix, which is easy to play but difficult to master, and set in a stunning diorama / boardgame version of the Hitman universe.
Available for iOS devices and priced at £2.99/$4.99/€4.49, this beautifully rendered diorama-style turn-based puzzle game focuses on forward thinking to progress through challenging levels and stylish freeze frame environments, to challenge even the most accomplished Hitman fan.
“We wanted to make something unexpected. Something that crystalizes everything ‘Hitman’ in the simplest way possible, while retaining the high class, cool attitude the famous assassin is known for” said Karsten Lund, Creative Director for Square Enix Montreal. “Essentially Hitman is about being behind enemy lines. You have to consider your every move in order to solve the puzzles. It’s about being undercover, smart and stealthy. We boiled most of the core Hitman mechanics such as disguises, distractions and different weapons, down to the simplest possible game, without losing the fun and tension of its AAA counterpart.”
From the screenshots that I’ve seen this game looks absolutely amazing, the board game style graphics and environments look stunning let’s just hope it plays as good as it looks. Be sure to stay tuned to n3rdabl3 for our Hitman GO review.
