Quickshot Stickmen Game Review
February 21, 2012
By Maxwell J. Provo
Quickshot Stickmen is not an advanced game and it is not complex. However, it does have a strange, short-lived appeal to it. While not advanced or complex, it is challenging and gets hard to play after a little while.
The goal of this game is to block as many Stickmen as possible from leaving the game screen. The Sticks pour down from the top, ooze from the bottom, and fly in from the sides in attempts to thwart your efforts. In order to block their assault, you must put the sight on the Sticks and fire away.
With each Stickman representing two-hundred fifty points, the points accumulate quickly. But as the game goes on, the men come faster and with more fury. With the increased number of Sticks, defending the borders of the screen becomes more and more difficult.
Playing this game with a laptop is not a very good idea as the track pad makes the sighting of the weapon difficult, though it will exercise your fingers well. To make the game easier, an external mouse or desktop will be to your advantage. Also, the knowledge to know which Sticks to pursue and which to let go is key to have. (If you do not have “abandoned target sense,” you will acquire it with this game!)
No matter how you play this game or what system you play it on, it provides a pretty substantial challenge of reflex and sight for at least a few minutes. While not the most involved or advanced game, Quickshot Stickmen dishes out a great challenge for a little while. Play the game to see if it can take as well as it can dish.
