Clear Vision 2 is the follow-up title to the original Clear Vision game, continuing the story of Tyler the contract killer. In the original game, Tyler is fired from his low-paying job and resorts to becoming a killer for hire to anyone willing to give him modest amounts of money to eliminate people. Clear Vision 2 picks up where the original game left off, but this time Tyler’s love interest has been kidnapped and he must find a way to get her back while picking up jobs on the side to keep him alive.

The life of a contract killer is not pretty. Every day a new target must be killed in order to make a living. The theme of this game definitely isn’t for young kids as the game is quick to point out. Although the game has some elementary graphics there is still a good amount of blood and graphic violence. The object of the game is simple: accept jobs from people who have placed hits on someone who has become a bit of an annoyance in their life. Each job has its own little story to go along with it that is explained in an email that Tyler receives before accepting to hit. Once the job is accepted, Tyler heads out with his sniper rifle to do what he needs to do to eliminate his targets. Most targets are easily identifiable but others require some patience and additional information in order to kill the right person. The game increases in difficulty as wind and increased distance are introduced. Players will need to steady their aim and be careful if they want to take their targets out in one shot.

Clear Vision 2 isn’t just about killing. There is a story line complete with animated cut scenes that tell more about Tyler’s life. As I said above, the animations are elementary but they are still very detailed in a lot of ways. The characters are simple stick figures but the environment around the characters is detailed enough to class up the overall experience. I thought the animations were rather funny at times even though they always end in someone getting shot and killed.

Clear Vision 2 is a great follow up to the original game. It’s a lot of the same thing but I like that it keeps going with the same story and delves deeper into Tyler’s troubled life. Fans of the original will want to pick this sequel up, especially since it’s only $0.99. My only complaint is that it can be repetitive and the missions are short, but this can also be seen as a benefit for those only wanting to distract themselves for a few minutes during the day.
