Been playing this a fair bit, some of the areas are the same and some killings are super easy.

But i've turned off push notifications, in my settings also its all set not to notify me. What happens at 5am this morning ? My gadget beeps to tell me my health had increased ! I turned off push notifications etc !

Seems to be an issue with this

I've been playing this off and on in short bursts and I've really been enjoying it. So far the contracts have been pretty easy but there is always a challenge to get a faster kill to get more XP. Locations and missions seem to be repeating but I've only done ~12 missions, looks like there are more locations to unlock on the map as you gain levels. Overall a fun experience and doesn't cost anything to try it out.

Missions cost energy, once your energy is gone you can either buy more with credits, IAP, or just wait till they replenish over time. They also fully replenish when you level up, thus if you're good at the game and can get bonus XP you can get a lot farther faster. As I don't mind grinding a bit for cash and have the patience to wait for my energy to recharge I haven't been pressured to spend any real cash. If you like gun simulation games with fairly simple missions and slight leveling up elements this could be a fun game for you.
