Hitman Goes Turn-Based On Smartphones With Hitman Go

By Ishaan . April 17, 2014 . 10:00am


Hitman Go, a turn-based puzzle game for iOS devices is available now, Square Enix announced this morning. The game uses diorama-style pieces and has you navigating a grid to avoid enemies and take out your target or infiltrate guarded locations.


“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, who developed the game.


“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.”


Hitman Go costs $4.99.

    Well uh… At least I’ll give them props for trying something diferent.

    This looks cool!

    I still don’t own any iOS devices, but this looks way cool! Very sexy percussion line in the trailer – considering Eidos Montreal’s track record I suspect this will actually be pretty rad. Somebody who can play it should give it a spin and let me know!

    Man, I really don’t want to go iOS because I love a few key Android apps too much, but all these delayed releases for Android wear me down, man.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    I wasn’t expected the boardgames like graphics but it looks interesting .

  • DesmaX

    Man, this looks a lot better than I though. Props for the team

    This game looks like it could actually be fun and the board game aesthetic looks interesting. If it does well on iOS I hope we’ll get to see it on other touch based systems like Wii U, Vita and 3DS.

    While I on the one hand wonder how cool a “stealth game” can be when things are turn-based, I have to admit that this digital board-game-esque thing LOOKS really good. Maybe it can even play good, even if you do see all the enemies and the whole playing field? Idk, I just think that making you work for a good overview of a situation is a big part of stealth games, and I can’t quite see how that would be applied to a board game design.

  • Looks cool! Hope they release for other mobile platforms!
