Immersive atmosphere, decent graphics, exciting game play
Menus need to be simplified, cliché story
Contract Killer: Sniper is an Android game that places the user in the shoes of a master assassin, hired to infiltrate and eliminate high-profile targets, dispose of their followers and even destroy entire bases; based on the task chosen from your contractor.
Do not be fooled by the name. The game is not all about sniping. Soon after starting the campaign players will find themselves armed with assault rifles, throwing knives and even rocket launchers. Sniping plays a major part in the game but it lacks the stealth feel that other games provide. A nice addition to the game is the player versus game mode. Here users get the chance to raid another player’s base in an attempt to steal their resources and use them to build a sturdy defense for their own base by purchasing turrets, guards or new weapons, or alternatively, upgrade existing ones.
The controls are responsive as both aiming and shooting with the virtual joystick proves to be a fluid experience. The game gives players the option to duck via an onscreen button on the right corner of the screen, or jump from cover to cover by taping on the arrows around the edges. As players progress through the game they gain access to consumable like knives or medical kits to enhance the gameplay.
Overall Contract Killer: Sniper is a well-constructed game that does a great job at immersing the player into a warzone. Weapons have a great feel to them with just the right amount of recoil when fired and realistic sounds that should be present in any shooter.
