Cold Crime Stickman Game Review

By Maxwell J. Provo
Cold Crime is a game where you can freely indulge your inner murderer or pretend you got into the Marines. Right off the bat, it is clear that this game is intended for the older gamers of Stickman Games.
“The game is bloodier than the rest, but that does not mean it is any less fun”
You are thrust into the role as a policeman of some sort at the beginning of the game. The mayor has just been shot and it is your duty to chase down and eliminate the assassin. The game takes place in a shopping mall of some sort. You need to progress through the floors in order to chase the assassin down and kill him. Throughout the game, you are met with the resistance of the assassins Stick Thugs. You are given a basic semi-automatic rifle at the beginning, but as the game progresses you can switch to weapons that the criminals have dropped.
Chasing down the assassin is no easy task. The Sick Thugs prove to be a challenge; they are armed heavily and often outnumber you. Surrounding you from all sides, they can be hard to take down. It takes several tries to get beyond the second level.
The Thugs vary in strength and ability as well as how well they are armed. Some Thugs can be killed with one head shot while others actually take two or three. Many of them can take four or five slugs to the chest and can still keep firing at you. Starting in the second stage, many throw grenades. The ones that throw grenades throw five or six at a time, so arrow key agility is required!
As well as arrow key agility, a quick mouse finger is needed!
The basic rifle provided is only fired once per click; it is not automatic. Even the second gun does not fire automatically, but it does have three-burst fire, which proves to be a huge advantage in the game.
Cold Crime is a great game, but it is not an easy game to win. It should be firmly said that this game is for older audiences. The blood and death screams are pretty graphic. However, for teenage guys and the slightly older user, this game can provide hours of challenging fun. (If you are in fact lonely enough to have hours to play flash games. This is a judging-free zone, no worries.) Sit back, have fun, and chase that assassin. This is your chance to be a Marine; there’s no physical to pass, so do not get nervous!
CONTROLS: Arrow keys (or AWSD keys) for movement, spacebar to switch weapons; left mouse button for firing
