Square Enix has announced that Hitman GO is now available for iOS devices for $4.99. Players can head over to the iTunes store to download the game that takes place in the Hitman universe with a brand new experience for mobile devices. Are you ready to enter this new puzzle game with challenging levels? Read on.


From the Press Release
Today sees the launch of Hitman GO, a simple to play, but difficult to master puzzle game set in a stunning interpretation of the Hitman universe. The talented team at Square Enix Montréal has created a new and unique experience for iOS devices priced at $4.99 and can be found on iTunes.

Hitman GO takes aspects of the Hitman universe to create a brand new and distinctive mobile gaming experience. 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 at Square Enix Montréal. “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.”
