Relive the glory days of flash stick animation and kill some stick figures while you're at it.
It's simple like the old stickman games, except not quite. You simply run around, kill enemies, get in cover to magically turn invisible. The weapons system, if you use advanced mode, is actually really fun when you get the hang of it. It's all about slaughtering stick figures who apparently are ideologically incorrect and copies and clones and bosses and mafia and crimes oh my. There are certainly some missions where you can just waltz in and blast everyone in sight. The feedback of taking them down makes the experience feel hardcore, it's cool.
Very good game, but short (3.5 hrs) thus the low price. Nice simplified graphics with a focus on fun gameplay. Its atkin to Gunpoint or Deadbolt but lots of differences too. You have infiltration missions that use stealth, grates to hide, covert close kills. Choose between a silencer, machine gun, explosives, gadgets (security cameras (equipment to disable) and can take cover behind objects to shoot/hide. You pick how you want to enter the facility as well, so has replay value and a bit fairly tactical. It is difficult too, on stealth missions if you are spotted by a camera - you start the level over, but the levels are not that long so it works well. I hope they add more missions, seems to be about 10. Probably can get 6 hours of out it as is. 9/10 based on price.
Choose between a variety of weapons and take cover... you are ready to shoot 'em sticks!, This game is a nostalgic letter about beloved stick figure games and has replay value. It is also a little bit strategic. It is difficult too, even if the levels are short I can say it's a bit challenging here and there. I'm sure it's a must pick if you want to have good time with an indie game... and it's also very cheap.
All in all a Fun Game with Minor Graphics. What is trully great is the Storyline and concept. The Fact that BombShelter Games brought back the good old days of Stick figure animation and games from the net all rolled into one decient package makes the time and effort to purchase and play this game orth wild. I did find a few issues with the Controller and bugs within the game. At times you have no choice but to quit a level to restart and not run into the issues. But the main Question is, would I recommend it or would I have purchased it? Both of the Answers are YES, as it has multi level play, a great story and tact. What more is needed, go out and try it today!
Ballistick might remind some people of the stick figure game and movie craze that was all over Newgrounds for some time, like many of those games this is a 2D sidescroller that uses stick figures for character models. Gameplay involves choosing different missions and loadouts and either moving through levels shooting enemies in your way or attempting to use stealth for silent kills and to avoid detection from cameras. You can peek through doors, make use of cover and blindfiring, throw grenades, or use gadgets to aid you. There is a simple story with short scenes showing your character leaving a criminal organization only to need to return to kill them after they send an assassin after him. Nostalgia for stick figures aside, the game just isn't that interesting with the dull graphics, poor animation, and at times slow gameplay. There are more interesting games to be had for this price.
