Hotline Miami – Assault
Hotline Miami’s addictive gameplay, shocking violence and relentless difficulty quickly earned the game a reputation. Assault, is one level in particular that really tests both your reflexes and strategy.
Starting out on the first floor, you’ll have to work your way through a police station heaving with heavily armored officers. There are several different tactics that are effective, but if you’re trying to earn an A+ achievement, you’ll need to bait enemies toward you and take them out in successive combos. Things can get very hectic, very quickly, and with so many bodies piling up it’s hard to tell which are dead and which are simply knocked down. If you allow one to get up and retrieve a weapon laying on the ground, you can say good night.
The level is a myriad of small rooms, many of which have windows that enemies can shoot through. If you fail to spot on or miss time your movement by just a fraction, expect to die instantly. Scraping through the level with a low rank is possible with only a few dozen deaths for most people. But if you want an A+ ranking, you can quadruple that number.
