You are the sniper. Problem is, you can't always see your targets. Luckily you have a beast of a rifle that has no trouble penetrating walls. Use CCTV footage as help to hit your targets!
Man this is super creative, if nobody's done this before you've got a nice idea here for a longer game. That being said I was weirdly disturbed by this game. When enemies in a game are shooting back or would kill you if they could it's one thing, but somehow picking off random strangers as they nonchalantly walk past the corpses of their friends gave me the creeps. "waiting room" was where I felt genuinely uncomfrotable. Great game though
Very clever game mechanic, it was challenging but I was always able to "solve the puzzle". The Rooftop Exercise level might be my favorite (didn't quite play all of the levels, though). Two nitpicks: I would like to be able to toggle the security cameras while the scope is active, and it would be nice to have bullet holes appear on both sides of walls to more easily connect the dots when looking at security cameras. (Maybe they do appear on both sides, but not reliably?) Also, the "assassin" vibe is very creepy as another commenter mentioned.
This game's awesome. It's actually pretty fun to try and map out the buildings in your head. I noticed that the bullet camera didn't happen when a shot wasn't going to come near any targets -- I thought that was a clever way of reducing the effectiveness of peeking into every part of the building.
I think the only thing that was actually annoying was the fact that sometimes I'd miss a completely concealed guy by a hair (i.e. the bullet grazed riiight past him). At that point, it's not really feasible for me to better map out exactly where the torso/head is -- I just have to try making small adjustments until it works.
A puzzle about sniping? Haven't played one of these since the crazy old Flash days. Refreshing take on it too, with the security cameras tying everything nicely to the theme.
The graphics are the weakest link this time (out of very strong links!) The sparse textures are gnarly and out of place. A completely flat-shaded look would have been a better fit here. Some kind of a stylish shader would seal the deal.
Not much I can complain about. The bullet cam could be just a wee bit faster for my liking.

This is really good! Especially the two last levels. My favorite was hide and seek, I had such a glorious haha! moment. I also thought it was so cool when I found about the randomization.
The music was fitting and the bullet animation looked really good.
Would like to see a polished version of this!
