    After noticing that Glu Games’ Contract Killer has soared to a top 2 position in the Top Free iPad Apps chart I decided to check it out and I’m certainly glad I did, as if you’re a fan of shooters and in particular sniping games, this is a must-have. I was hooked after a couple of plays. For each mission you undertake as the contract killer of the title, you’ll be placed at a vantage point in one of five 3D Central City locations, given your instructions, and then left to carry out the deed, more often than not with a sniper rifle. There are 17 story missions and unlimited Random Missions, and 20 weapons to use, including handguns, machine guns and assault rifles. The more accurate and quick you are, the more XP and cash you earn to unlock and buy more weapons and equipment. The push notifications are fun too, hilarious getting messages through on your iPad that one of your in-game contacts wants you to carry out a contract.

    It would also appear that Contract Killer is very much a free game in every sense of the word. Although there are in-app purchases available, it seems that you can still play the game quite happily for free without ever making an in-app purchase. If you want to get free Contract Credits, you can download free apps via a link. No problem, most of them are good apps, such as Words With Friends and Gun Bros. An absolute bargain, and well -worth checking out if you’re a shooter/sniper game fan. It’s a universal app so also compatible with iPhone.

    Explain this to me. I downloaded this app and felt like it was tricking me into spending money. Am I right or did I miss something. I deleted it because I thought it was one of those scam type apps. However the reviews are really good...so I'm confused.

    As far as I can see, and I've been playing for quite a while, you don't have to make any purchases if you don't want to and you can play quite happily without doing so. Basically you just go from mission to mission on the map, talk to the contacts and you then get to play their mission. You can buy guns, weapons and stuff with the in-game currency (not real money!) that you earn from successful hits. I would suggest you maybe give it another go. I don't intend to spend a penny in-app and so far I haven't had to! :)

    Thanks. I think the "currency" is where I thought I was getting tricked to spend my own cash. I'll give it another try. Thanks.

    It seems faster at loading.

    Fun fact: if you open it every day, you win a random "comeback" bonus :)

    It must be a hello of an app. On my fast home wifi, it took forever to load. I then noticed my Ipad had 1.2 Gig less space than it had before the app!

    Can't figure out how to edit. Meant to say it took forever to download and install.

    The game is definitely fun but... after 20/30 deaths, doesn't it seems "more of the same"?
