Picks
Ian
Hitman Go
– iOS
– £2.99
– a great looking turn based strategy.
– You control your agent, dictating which path he takes through a level solving various puzzles as you go.
– One note of caution is that there is an element of in app purchasing for hints and unlocks but they aren’t needed to play the game and it doesn’t get in the way when I’m playing.
– An impressive game which will take some time to complete.
