This is one game that really is right on the edge of the seat action. It’s Killing Time and you are the person who can meet interesting and glamorous people and then kill them for your reward. But this is an entire new twist on gaming, a new angle on a theme of killing and a highly addictive and novel approach to gaming.
You see, It’s Killing Time is essentially a book – a 140,000-word one at that – and it’s a book that YOU control by deciding the outcome. It’s almost as though you are writing the novel and what you determine decides how the story unfolds.
Your choices control the outcome of this fabulous story that is essentially about the player being the hitman or hit woman. It allowed me to stretch my own imagination into the darkest recesses it could possibly go. Knowing that you choose what happens next is great and I’m guessing any psychoanalyst reading the completed article is going to be able to see into the deepest recesses of your active mind.
As a hired assassin you must gain respect, money and of course a reputation. There are always people out there with money who want to do away with certain people (at least in this book there is) and you are the one to try and bolster your claim to hitman fame.
You will be more of a James Bond style character than a downtown street thug with a gun. You get to drive around in top class motors, wear designer clothing and pack enough arsenal in your trunk to blow half a town away. Yes there is glamour and a pace so fast it will be like Miami Vice on steroids or Mission Impossible on Ketamine.
But who can you trust? There will be those who will aim to deceive you and those who simply cannot be trusted. You must decide whether you need to play the same game (and trust me, I HAD to) by deceiving others.
Whether you decide to be a sociopathic nutcase or just a clinical hitman is entirely a matter for you. All I can say it’s a great deal of fun finding out a little bit about yourself – and a tad scary too.
If you are looking for a game that has an outcome decided by you and is ultra-fast paced, this one is likely to tick all of the boxes.
