Hitman Sniper

Developed by Square Enix Montreal, Hitman Sniper puts you in the shoes of the notorious Agent 47. There are two modes in the game - Montenegro (the main story mode), and a zombie survival mode called Death Valley.

Montenegro is basically one giant level. There are 10 "top" targets for you to assassinate, but the actual amount of missions you can complete is around 150. Most of these missions involve killing your main target plus extra objectives such as killing characters with accident kills, finishing off a certain amount of guards, achieving a certain score, and so on. The money collected after each mission allows you to buy new weapons or upgrade existing ones. At a first glance, the game looks like a typical sniper shooter, but playing through a few stages made us realize just how complex and addicting Hitman Sniper can truly be.

On the Normal and Hard difficulties, there are three waves of zombies that must be killed before Ben gets the car up and running, while the Expert difficulty spawns an infinite amount of waves.

Dwarves got you down? Doomwheel. Rival clans done you wrong? Doomwheel. Goblin grief? Doomwheel.

Warhammer: Doomwheel is an award-winning indie title that adopts a comical approach to the Warhammer franchise. Basically, you can classify this game as a member of the "endless runner" genre, but there's a lot more to it than Subway Surfers or Temple Run. You take the role of a Skaven (the rat people) "enginseer" who has constructed the so-called "Doomwheel" - a vehicle of destruction that looks like a deadly hamster wheel.

In a nutshell, you drive and jump through the stages, smashing through the various enemies while collecting currency to upgrade your Doomwheel. The story mode is fun and immersive, and there are multiple regions, bosses, and achievements to keep you hooked.

Linia is a rather interesting puzzle game. You have to create color sequences by tracing a line connecting colored shapes. The mechanic is a bit like Fruit Ninja, but you'll realize that it's a lot more difficult to succeed here than to just slash fruit like a madman. Patience, precision, and quick reactions are key here.
