If you've been waiting for the right moment to pounce on Square Enix's bold yet surprisingly successful mobile reimagining of the Hitman series, now's your time to strike: Both iOS and Android versions of Hitman Go are currently available at $2, a 60 percent discount off its standard price.

Unlike its console- and PC-based third-person action game forebears, Hitman Go is akin to a puzzle game played out on a board of stylized miniatures. All of the murder-for-hire action of the franchise is included in Hitman Go, but the game itself is a more tactical experience that requires careful planning and execution. Rushing in with a basic idea of who you have to kill and then deciding to dispatch everyone with akimbo pistols will almost never accomplish your mission, and most often will riddle your character's bald corpse with innumerable bullets.

Those intrigued by this price cut should be sure to grab Hitman Go as soon as possible. This discount is only valid until August 25, after which the mobile game returned to its standard $5 price point.
