Square Enix Montréal has temporarily dropped the prices of both Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO to $0.99. I’m not sure whether Square Enix are using this surprise sale as a means of capitalizing on the current craze surrounding the similarly monikered Pokémon GO, or if they’re simply trying to drum up interest in the soon to be released Deus Ex GO. Whatever the reason, this is a great deal since these titles would normally set you back $4.99 apiece.
Despite its critical acclaim, I’ve never really warmed up to Hitman GO. I’ve tried to get into the game quite a few times, but something about its stripped-back stealth puzzles and board game-style aesthetic just doesn’t click with me. Don’t let that put you off though, because, as I say, everyone else seems to love it.
Lara Croft GO, on other the hand, is one of my all-time favorite iOS games. From the incredibly clever gameplay to the amazingly lush and stylish visuals, I dig everything about this one. My colleague Clovis L. Dye, Jr. also had lots of nice things to say about Lara Croft GO in his in-depth 5-star review, such as calling it “a wonderfully produced experience” and a “masterpiece.”
Update: One of our readers just let me know via Twitter that The GO Collection (which bundles together both the aforementioned GO titles) is also on sale for $0.99. If you don’t yet own either game, that really is an unmissably excellent deal. Hat tip to @zigadolar.
