Unlike prior games in the stealthy series, Hitman Go is more akin to a puzzle game, where players must carefully maneuver the bald assassin through stages that resemble a traditional board game. The core goals of remaining undetected and finding the most efficient means to kill a target remain paramount, but Hitman Go infuses these traditional elements with a quiet subtlety not found in prior entries.
"The play style recalls the strategic thinking of the console/PC games, but does so with an entirely new style that fits touch-based devices like a fine leather glove," wrote Anthony in our 4 of 5 stars review.
Those interested in picking up Hitman Go can now find the game on the Google Play Store at a price of $5. Be careful not to confuse Hitman Go with the similarly-titled Hit Mango, a 2D fighter in which you beat fruit into a pulp.
