From Hitman: Blood Money to the 2012 hit Hitman: Absolution and now the big-selling, Hitman 1, 2 and 3 series of games, the franchise has come a long way. Moreover, it only makes sense to come up with something like Hitman Sniper: The Shadows for the smartphone gamers out there.
Smartphone gamers will definitely be happy as the recent Hitman PC games are extremely graphically demanding. Most players won’t be able to play these titles seamlessly because of that. Hence, a smartphone game of the popular Franchise will come as a life saver.
