I’m a huge fan or online multi-player game, but I often approach new ones with a touch of apprehension. At their best, PvP games can be some of the most fun and addictive kind around, but at their worst they come off like dull copies of something that’s been done a thousand times before. Thankfully, Sniper vs. Thieves falls in the first category as the developers have done an amazing job of taking the familiar game format and presenting it in a fresh new way. It’s easily the best new mobile multi-player game released since Battle Bay .

As with all PvPs, Sniper vs. Thieves has players pitted against one another in a real-time battle. The interesting thing about it, though, is players can choose the kind of gameplay experience they want to have. Before a match, players can decide to play as either a lone Sniper that hunts the bad guys or as part of a group of four Thieves escaping the scene of a robbery.

If you play as a Sniper, your role is to be on the lookout for the thieves as they leave the location of their latest heist. Your goal is to shoot down as many of the thieves as you can before they make it to the getaway vehicle. Most thieves can’t be taken out with just one shot — unless you’re lucky enough to get a head shot in. But getting a good shot will be challenging as the thieves will dart back and forth between obstacles at varying rates of speed, sometimes deploying decoys or using other devices to aid their escape. The types of shots you make and the number of thieves you end up capturing will determine the cash and rewards you earn when the time runs out.

On the flip side, if you play as a thief, you’re part of a team with a team goal. On an individual level, your goal is to get out of there alive, but the size and type of rewards you earn will depend on how many of your comrades made it out alive. Your gameplay as a thief also differs from that of a sniper in that you don’t use any weapons for counter attack. Rather, your job is to sneak around using any means available to avoid detection and deflect damage as you make your way to the getaway vehicle.

As a sniper, if you manage to take out at least on thief you’ll be rewarded with a special suitcase. The same is true when you play as a thief and make it out alive.  These suitcases are unlocked over time, or if you don’t want to wait, with the game’s premium currency. The suitcases contain cards in them that allow you to unlock new gadgets and devices, or upgrade those you already own. For Snipers, the upgrades include things like better guns, bombs, and detection devices to help you root out the enemy. As a thief, your upgrades include things like disguises, decoys, health restoring drinks and protective clothing.

Like most multi-player games, Sniper vs. Thieves has a guild system, which players can join in order to complete heists together. Joining a guild also allows players to compete against other guilds by completing various objectives. Top guilds will be awarded premium prizes at the end of a season. There are also daily missions players can compete to win additional suitcases. Getting the hang of the game (especially when playing as a sniper) can be a little tricky at first, and for those who prefer to play a causal unranked game, there is a practice mode available.

Besides the excitement real-time PvP games bring,   Sniper vs. Thieves incorporates Garfield-like graphics and animated cut scenes that play as you wait for a game to begin, making each match that much more entertaining.

Sniper vs. Thieves is available to download now for free on both the Google Play and Apple App Store . If you love real-time, online multi-player games, be sure to check this one out.
