Awesome Sniper Man Game Review
February 23, 2012
By Maxwell J. Provo
Awesome Sniper puts you in control of, well, an awesome sniper. With the ability to upgrade weapons, cloths, and bullets, this game has some appeal behind its point system. While the interface is nearly impossible to use on a laptop track pad, playing this game with a mouse will most certainly rack up the points for you.
Placing you in control of a Stickman sniper, so named Awesome Sniper Man, this game works much like many other games on Stickman Games. Enemies start off charging in small numbers and then begin to come in larger and larger droves as time goes by and your score gets higher and higher. Your vantage point is the hallowed high ground in the form of a tower; shoot down on the charging ones to claim your points.
The sighting mechanism employed by the proverbial Awesome Sniper Man is unique. A red laser sight shoots out from the rifle, but that is not how the bullets find their true targets. On the laser is a grey dot that shuttles up and down with your moves of the mouse. Place this grey dot on the Sticks to blast them to Hell.
Each kill garners you fifty points and twenty StickBucks to spend at the upgrade store. AT the store you can purchase a multitude of items. These include bullets that can kill more than one enemy at a time and different rifles that improve accuracy, aiming, and firing speed. Along with weapon upgrades, you may purchase clothing to give you an added, if unknown, edge.
Awesome Sniper Man employs many elements common to Stickman Games. However, with the unique aiming method of the rifles and the interesting power-ups this game delivers a new feel to the classic. This game promises to please the diehard Stickman fans along with the newcomers.
RATING: 4 SticksAwesome Sniper Man,
