Stick Master DX Game Review
December 19, 2011
By Maxwell J. Provo
To put it simply, Stick Master DX allows you to live as Mr. Miyagi. You battle your way through the Asian Wastelands to search for your daughter, who has been kidnapped by the infamous Dark Lord. Along your quest you battle the minions of the Dark Lord: Evil Sticks, demons, and troll-like creatures. But have no fear; you are not the Stick Master for nothing!
About Stick Master DX
The game is a basic one. The enemies that you battle increase as the levels wear on. However, the enemies remain the same throughout the level, with most variation being introduced in the first couple of missions. You are equipped with magic powers that are comparable to the Force. You push, smash, and crash your way through the game and hope for the best. Navigation gets a bit clumsy, so keep a sharp eye on your screen!
Bonuses and Extra Lives
Bonuses are scattered throughout the game. These give Stick Master certain special abilities for a limited time period. The bonuses I encountered were Multi-Fire and one that added additional points to my total. Multi-fire takes the energy discharges that come from your fingers and splits them into many different, small fists that deal more damage to your opponents. The other bonus simply adds a certain amount of points (generally 100) to your point total.
As well as bonuses, extra life tokens are found in the game as well. These add one “life” to your game, meaning you can die and still come back to life. These come in handy and are the most useful bonus, in my opinion.
To add additional power to your abilities, hold the left mouse button down before releasing to charge your energy. This creates a larger shock wave and wipes most enemies out in one or two blows. Occasionally, a large fist of energy forms and knocks even more damage off the thug.
How good is the Stick Master DX game?
Stick Master DX is not a complex or long game. It appears as if it can be beaten within twenty minutes. It provides a quick warm-up for some more challenging pastimes on the site. While it is not the most advanced, it does allow your inner-Yoda to be channeled and it is fun for a little while. Try this out and you will not have a bad experience. It is a time-killer. Play it between reading chapters from that book that is due tomorrow.
