User Rating:

The game is played from a birds-eye view of your assassin.  The idea is to collect contracts and kill people while elluding the authorities.  Touching certain corners of your screen moves the character around.  Your assigned other players online, and then pick up targets to determine which player you need to kill.  Then you wander around town until you find those players and simply tap them to assassinate.

Surprisingly, it requires quick a large amount of skill needed to walk with other civillians around town.  You need to match their movements as much as possible in order to stay "stealthy".  At the same time, you want to keep your eyes open for other "civillians" who are moving strangely or going places they shouldn’t be to try and avoid being assassinated yourself.

The game has various power-ups along the way, and a friends system.

Using my home WiFi, I still found myself thrown off the network quite a few times.  Perhaps it’s due to the heavy traffic resulting from the initial (free) release of the game.

I found the initial game to be fun, but after a little while, the interest for me wore off and I found that I wasn’t going to keep this one around on my iPhone.

Quick Take

Value:For $2.99 I'm on the fence.

Would I Buy Again:For free, sure. Otherwise, its up in the air.

Learning Curve:Not difficult.

Who Is It For:Anyone who likes multiplayer gaming.

What I Like:Good graphics. Smooth game play.

What I Don't Like:Need constant Wi-Fi Connection, Server was flakey

Final Statement:Unless you're really good at it, this game could kill you.
