Having already surprised the iOS audience with its pleasantly novel take on contract killing, Hitman Go is now ready to dispatch targets on Android devices.

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.
