Hitman Go is an award winning strategy based puzzle game. The player is required to navigate through hidden spaces to take out the target and infiltrate well-guarded places. The agent 47 has to be made to move around the board in well-designed dioramas to get to the exit point. The end mission of the game is to complete every level without being spotted.

There are games where direction provided in the game make the game slow and thus unappealing; and then there are games where you don’t know what to do next because there is no prompting at all. This game has achieved the perfect balance between both the extremes.
You are directed, at times by the camera and lighting, and at times by other players shouting; but the direction never overpowers or reduces the thrill or the tension of the game. It, in fact, adds to it.
The game is not just a series of adrenaline surges, but also an emotional rollercoaster ride. There is an undercurrent of realness under every scene that is being played out.
