Description

Tactical Assassin Substratum is the third entry into the series where once again the player takes control of the stick figure assassin. The story is slightly different in this version, while the previous games had the player either work freelance or do odd jobs for an organization, this one has the player once again for an organization where they have the assassin intervene in a mob war and bring an end to it by eliminating targets given to them by their superiors.

There are nine total missions to play, ranging from simple shoot-to-kill while other's reply on the player's speed and aiming and some others require the player to rely solely on the intel given to them before each mission. Another added feature that is absent from the other games is a stealth mission where the player will view an animation of their assassin sneaking up behind a target and require them to take them out with a knife. To do this the player will be shown a screen where the can view their target and their knife, to kill their target a "killzone" line will be shown on the targets head while a "slash" line is moved up and down in random intervals. The players must click it at the precise moment the "slash" line lines up with the "killzone" line to turn red in order to eliminate their target and advance to the next.

This version mostly resembles its first game where the player only has one rifle, but has six shooting reticules to choose from, whereas it's predecessor had a plethora of weapons to choose from and a monetary system. A score is tallied at the end of the game depending on how fast the player can complete the game and how accurate their aim is and deducted points for failing missions.

Players can also receive points for finding "easter eggs" scattered throughout the stage in the form of cans and birds, shooting these will give the players extra points. The gameplay is the same as the previous two, using the mouse button to aim at their target and clicking the left mouse button to fire the weapon.
