Shoot the Stickman Game Review
February 20, 2012
By Maxwell J. Provo
Shoot the Stickman is a very boring, very no-nonsense game. With only one thing to do, the game gets repetitive and tedious and after one minute, there is just nothing left to do. Shoot the Stickman lures the would-be player in with a catchy title promising sniper missions, guns, and levels. Only the first one is true and there are not even plural “missions.”
Plunging you into a cornfield, the objective of Shoot the Stickman is to shoot the Stickman as many times as possible throughout the game, which lasts one minute. A very simple goal, it is extremely easy to get fifty or more kills within the allotted minute. After each shot, the Stickman moves around the playing field in what can only be interpreted as an attempt to confuse and challenge the player, though it does neither of these things; it merely gets you to exercise your mouse arm (if you can call it physical activity).
Shoot the Stickman would benefit greatly from varied missions, different weapon choices, and a greater challenge. (Maybe even plural challenges.) It would be less painful to search for a more fleshed-out game here on StickMan than to sit through and waste a minute playing this so-called “game.”
Remember back in 2005 when on the top of every website would be “contest” promising you a four gigabyte iPod nano if you knocked George Bush, Osama bin Laden, or a duck? This game’s inspiration clearly finds its roots in those annoying ads. Go to the search bar and type in “shoot.” Any game that is not this one will much better fulfill your desire for weapons and fun.
