Hunter Assassin is an action game published by Ruby Game Studio. The main objective of this game is to guide your character infiltrate the bases and kill all the enemies without getting caught. Interestingly, the game will actually remind you of the classic Syphon Filter video game but in simple and less complex gameplay. The game will take you to a series of action-packed levels with a varying range of difficulties that will surely put your stealth skills on a great test. Each level comes with a target number of enemies that must be killed and if you think you have what it takes to become the best hunter assassin, then feel free to explore this game and see how far can you go.
The mechanics for Hunter Assassin are very simple and easily manageable yet the player is still encouraged to exert the best of his visual reflexes and to show off his impressive eye and hand coordination to maximize his chances of winning. As soon as the game starts, it prompts you right away to the first level. The game comes with a simple interface with a fixed game area parameter. The obstacles or the walls, however, are changing dynamically as you progress. You can move the character by simply tapping any area on the map. The character will follow the track (represented by yellow trail). You can kill enemies by simply passing through them.
Keep in mind that your character is not armed with any weapons other than his knife. You are strongly encouraged to attack enemies from behind. All enemies are actively roaming and patrolling the area and you can see their covered radius through the light coming from their flashlights. You must avoid confronting them at all costs, otherwise, it will trigger the alarm and they will shoot you. It will also attract nearby enemies which will only put you in so much trouble. Your character can only endure a couple of shots and inflicting more than that will kill you immediately. This will give you no other option but to start the same level back from the very beginning (you can watch a rewarded video though to revive the character from where you left off).
Achievements and Upgrades
Another great thing about Hunter Assassin is the Achievement system. The game will provide you a series of goals that you must achieve to earn rewards in return. These quests are given three at a time and once you have completed a task, it will soon be replaced by another task. Some of the quests might ask you to eliminate a specific number of targets or might require you to complete a level without taking any damage. You might also be asked to watch a reward video which is a clever way for developers to input ads on the game. These ads, however, will be shown on top of the other advertisements that will pop up almost after every level.
The rewards are in the form of diamonds, the game’s virtual currency. You earn diamonds in many ways. The players can earn diamonds not just through completing quests but also through the game itself. You will earn a certain number of diamonds every time you kill an enemy. Occasionally, you can also collect keys that are randomly hidden in the map. Collecting three keys allows you to access the vaults and unlock more items such as new characters, new attributes, or more diamonds. The diamonds are mainly used to Upgrade or unlock a new character. You can unlock the first character by collecting a total of 5000 diamonds. The game will randomly unlock new characters which might possess better attributes like greater speed or better health rate. The upgrade fee will exponentially increase as you progress.
Gifts and VIP Account
From time to time, you will receive Gifts that might contain great prizes. To open the gift, however, you have to watch another reward video (which could be a downside for Hunter Assassin). The gift rewards might be in forms of diamonds or new characters. If you really want a better gaming experience with Hunter Assassin, you might as well consider upgrading your account to VIP. The VIP account allows you to access special characters like the Ninja Assassin which has the ability to kill targets even from afar. VIP account will also show no ads and will grant you a total of 5000 Diamonds and 100% Level Bonus.
Speaking of which, Level Bonus is a special level where you fight against diamond-made targets and will give you the opportunity to collect more currency. The VIP access currently offers 3 Days free trial before you proceed to their fee-based subscription amounting to a $6.99 weekly plan.
Hunter Assassin is a very simple yet surprisingly addictive action game. The game can be very repetitive but the rate of difficulty will drastically increase as you progress. Tougher enemies will be introduced on higher levels which makes the game even more challenging and thrilling at the same time. Appearance-wise, Hunter Assassin comes with a neat and visually-pleasing design that is also accompanied by well-fitting music and audio effect. The frequent ads are one of its notable downsides but other than that, this game works perfectly well even without an Internet connection. Above all, the game has an overwhelming number of levels to explore and it comes with a decent replay value. Currently, Hunter Assassin is available for both Android and iOS devices and you can download the game absolutely for free. Have fun!
