“Snipers. Trained killers, specializing in long distances. Quiet. Stealthy. But above all else... patient.” -WKYK
Sniper 3D Assassin is a gaming app for Android and the iOS that puts you in the shoes of the deadliest military weapon in the world: the sniper. It's point-and-shoot style and realistic graphics make it a formidable foe for other first-person shooters out there.
The bad guys are at it again, and it's your job as a highly-trained sniper to take them out with your long-range sniper rifle. There are criminals aplenty in Sniper 3D Assassin, so you won't run out of bad guys anytime soon. Your ultimate goal is to take down the crime boss that heads his seedy empire of thugs and militia bodyguards.
One of the great things about this game is that you don't have to move around. What we mean is that you don't have to walk, run or jump anywhere. You'll begin your mission on a rooftop somewhere with an assignment to take out a particular target. The target will be somewhere within view of your rifle's scope. The only movement that's required is aiming your scope up, down, left and right. You can do this with your phone's tilt controls or buttons on the touchscreen.
The rifle you start with has minimal distance on the scope, so upgrading it is essential to taking out later targets. The game doesn't give you much of a paycheck for each kill. It may be awhile before you can get a second upgrade, but the game also has helpful hints as to which upgrade you should pick. Certain upgrades are needed for the next mission. You can upgrade any part of your rifle, including the grip, clip size, ammo and many others.
The game has several options for gameplay, including an optional “blood” feature that makes the game more graphic and realistic. There are also different mission types. The campaign mode is the main storyline of the game. Daily missions earn you bonus cash, and master missions help you to earn points by improving your skills. Special ops mode has unique goal-oriented missions. There's quite a lot going on with Sniper 3D Assassin.
Believe it or not, the game's creators developed Sniper 3D Assassin to help you sit back and relax after a long day at the office. While we're not sure about the moral ambiguity of the game's premise, we did greatly enjoy the gameplay. The graphics are amazing, and the attention to details is superb. It's hard to believe this is a mobile app with how good the graphics are; it looks like it was downloaded from a Next Gen console. Each mission is interesting and fun. The thrill of taking out your target and succeeding in your mission is comparable only to acing your finals in senior year. It's that rewarding.
