First Blood Stickman Game Review
February 19, 2012
By Maxwell J. Provo
Scope: First Blood is the first in a promised series of similar “dark sniper” games. If the rest of the games are going to be like this one, then the rest of the series is definitely something to look for. True to its word, this is a dark sniper game. This game is not suitable for the StickMan enthusiast under fourteen or so.
The game centers around various missions you, as the gunman, are obliged to carry out. Increasing with difficulty as the game progresses, all of the missions require more than just eliminating your assigned target. Nearly always, the missions require ingenuity. Only once did I encounter a level where you simply killed someone. Every other mission had its objective cleverly hidden. For example, one mission is to kill everyone in a pool. In order to do this, you must puncture a hole in the pool with your rifle and then shoo the radio next to the backyard oasis. The trail of water from the pool meets with the electricity in the radio and feeds back into the pool. Let us just say that the swimmers are in for quite a shock (haha, good one).
Simple But Brilliant
Scope: First Blood has no power-up, weapon upgrades, or anything of that nature. However, the creativity and humor of the missions make up for that. Dark though the humor may be, it is humor nonetheless.
Scope: First Blood has a copious number of levels. Stumped on level ten or so (whatever the construction one is; trust me, it is hard!), I would have kept going. The simple fun of the game keeps you clicking continue. While not the most graphically appealing game on the site, Scope: First Blood nevertheless pleases on the most basic level. Hopefully, the rest of the planned series pans out. Be sure to click on this game and play until you are stumped. It is worth it.
RATING: 4.5 SticksScope: First Blood,
