Devel: Square Enix Montreal
Wazzat: Hitman GO is a simple to play, but difficult to master turn-based strategy game set in a stunning interpretation of the Hitman universe.
Mandatory US Disclosure: They sent us keys
– Not sure if want
– Check it out
Makes with the working
- Sound, music, VSync.
- Yeah, welcome to the config menu, Neo.
- I’ve seen some lazy ports but that’s just… damn.
- Granted you can disable sound/music but WHAR sliders?
- No options for resolution and more importantly, windowed mode.
- Ya loosin a chair for that.
- Saying it has an options menu is a stretch!
- But, to be fair, it runs great even on the Steam Box.
- It came out for Android in 2014, but good on Square Enix on releasing it for the Linuxes at the same time they brought it to the consoles.
Shiny / Sounds
- It’s a mobile port so don’t expect much.
- The “playas” are nondescript plastic things only distinguished by their jacket colour.
- The dioramas are well done albeit a little flat.
- What I’m saying is this, it looks alright… for a iPhone game, on a 28’ display, at UHD.
- Sound? FK sound! I never once thought to put on my headset.
- I mean, for a digital board game it looks about as good as it’s going to
- Not deserving of four chairs, but it does do what it sets out to
- It’s a sliding block puzzle with a Hitman theme.
- The graphics are heavily stylized but all that means is the game will hold up for a long long time.
- The music… Well, when that lady starts singing Ave Maria with a really annoying pitch my ears just want to coil in on themselves.
- Grab a controlla and sit back.
- 99% of the time the D-pad works flawlessly.
- 1% of the time it will miss register the input and send you flying right into nopesville.
- You can adjust the overhead view from faux isometric to overhead.
- Unfortunately you can only temporally pan the camera about 30 degrees at any time.
- Click and drag and click some more!
- A Unity game with proper controller support, well I’ll be!
- Lads, I think this is the first mobile port (with possible exception of Sky Force Anniversary) that did not completely suck donkey testicles
- This critter starts off hella simple but gradually ramps up to “Oh, FK this level!”
- First there are trap-doors, then jackets, and now sniper rifles.
- Admittedly I’m only on the third boxen but it’s genuinely using my brain-organ.
- And if we’re being honest, I really didn’t want to like this game.
- Turns out… I did.
- That said this has exactly FK and ALL to do with the Hitman franchise.
- It’s a single player board game. Angry birds hitman edition
- I mean, it’s alright, but it’s not really my thing.
- When it comes to turn based movement games, I prefer mine in the flavour of Xcom or Shadowrun Returns
- As far as android ports go, it’s not horrible, but it’s not fantastic either. I give it a meh
- It’s an Android game through and through.
- You can get through missions anywhere between 30 seconds and 10 minutes.
- It’s well done and the only reason I can’t give it 4 chairs for the fun is because the desktop/Steam Machine medium doesn’t lend itself well to this kind of game.
- If I’m slouched on the couch or sitting in this admittedly very expensive chair, I want a proper engaging experience.
- Hitman GO is much better when you’re sitting on the toilet with your tablet.
- Especially if you had a lot of fiber in the last few days and it may take you a good few minutes to get it all out.
- Every time I started the game, 10 minutes later I would have finished a few missions and I was satisfied with it and decided, since I was sprawled on the couch, might as well play some GRID Autosport or The Binding of Isaac.
- Also, I’m not sure $8 is the right price point for an Android game… Oh wait, this is a Square Enix game. Nevermind!
