You play as Vinnie, Kiro and Shorty, however you can freely choose which of the characters you want to work the most with, and they all got their own ways of assassination. So either you like sniping or close range shooting, Sift Heads World 9 will provide an entertaining game play with both humoristic and stressing moments.
For those who have played one, or more, of the previous eight games in the series will immediately recognize the graphics; stickmen inspired drawings and black and white background colors. The mix between the colors, graphics, sound effects and background music really creates that assassin effect, which the game is all about. The artificial intelligence will sometimes give you a hard time as your opponents will become more powerful and smart throughout the game, and you'll meet characters that have been important since the first game!
