Are you a sniper, or a thief, or would you like to be both? Thieves are stealing The Banker’s money, and it’s up to the Sniper to stop them in this mobile online multiplayer game. You get to decide whose side you’re on.
Snipers Vs. Thieves by Playstack is a fast-paced game where you can play with strangers or with friends. Either play as the sniper and be a lone wolf or play with up to four friends and play as a band of thieves trying to escape with the loot. As the sniper, it is your responsibility to take down the thieves before they reach the getaway van on the other side of the map. The thieves can be taken down either by shooting them as they sneak around or, if the sniper delays them long enough and time runs out, the remaining thieves who haven’t died or escaped will be arrested.
As one of the thieves, use your environment to safely get to the van with your loot. Hide behind buildings and cars, use barrels and boxes to sneak across the map like it’s Metal Gear Solid. If the thieves can reach the getaway van without dying and before the time runs out, the loot will be split between them. If someone dies along the way, their loot can be picked up by another thief and added to the total at the end. How difficult it is to get to the van depends on how skilled of a sneaker you are as well as the skill of the sniper in the game, giving Snipers Vs. Thieves a good level of unpredictability.
On the main screen of the game you will be able to choose sides. For Snipers, there’s the office button. This is where the leaderboard can be found, as well as updating your profile (coming soon), and masks. Your character can have a variety of masks from collections like the “comfortably warm collection” which is ski masks in different colors, to the “oddball collection”, where if you want a giant eyeball for a mask, you can get it. In the Black Market, players can find the masks to buy as well as better scopes for the rifles, health kits, and other items. The items change every 24 hours, giving a nice level of variety and adding to the replayability of the game. The more new stuff there is, the longer the game will stay interesting.
On the Thieves side of the screen, you find a “cartels” button. This is where players can join a group of friends or strangers up to 25 people can fit in each cartel. You have to be level 14 to join any cartels, but leveling up is super easy, which keeps the game fun and interesting. Lastly there is a Loot button which is where loot cases can be opened with keys collected while playing the game or by buying them. And if you need more money or gold bars, the currency in the game, there are microtransactions in place for that. There are occasional ads in the game as well, though they’re not excessive which keeps from discouraging the player from playing the game.
Snipers Vs Thieves is fun and easy to get into, and matches are only about a minute long. Matchmaking goes pretty fast, so the waiting and loading doesn’t take too long. There are at least nine different maps including the docks, downtown, and the pier. The maps are picked at random by the game and give it even more variety. Before you start the game, there’s a power-ups shop where snipers can buy amo, traps, and better rifles and thieves can buy boosts, disguises such as boxes or trees, and different loot bags.
The amount of variety in this game is what makes it so easily addictive. Different maps and two character types to choose from gives it a new feel each time, and playing against other people and not bots definitely adds to it. The art style is cartoonish with bright colors and simple designs, giving the game a fun feel. Snipers Vs Thieves is highly addictive and the fast pace and quick matches makes it easy to get lost in.
