Pick and play is probably my favourite genre of games. They have minimal rules, just a couple of controls and are really addictive, which makes them perfect for playing while waiting in a queue. Pancake – The Game and Dextris have been my favourites for this purpose but Stick World seems to be a compelling one.
Stick World has your default hero who looks like Buddha, standing by the edge of a cliff. There is a series of towers ahead of him and he needs to continue his journey to enlightenment, without falling off the edge of the screen.
Tap and hold to see a stick growing vertically upwards. Release and the stick falls down to form a plank for Buddha to cross over to the next tower. If you don’t hold the tap long enough, the stick will be too small; hold it for longer and the stick will overshoot the tower. In either case, the result will be Buddha falling to his end.
To keep things challenging in the Stick World, coins appear below the plank and you can tap to hang down like a ninja and pick it up. But make sure you get back on the plank quickly or you will crash into the towers. Besides coins, you are awarded gems and hearts for placing perfectly sized planks too.
Cross a tower and your score gets a plus one. Stick World is an endless game which means you are to reach as far as possible and cracking the high score is what adds the replayability. Each round of game takes off a heart, that can be bought by swapping with the gold and gems you collect, by watching an ad or of course using the in-app purchase. If you don’t want to do any of these, they will automatically replenish with time.
What really adds to the experience is the 8 different heroes you can play as, forming a light RPG component. Each hero has his own special power like jump, double jump, freezing stick, punch, flipping, moving the stick and more. Many of them can be unlocked for free as you progress through the game or by sharing on social media and rating on the App Store. You can even use a cut-out of your own face and use it as your hero in Stick World.
The app is Game Centre integrated so that you can follow you friends and top scores on the leaderboard. Stick World also has gameplay recording system, which can upload your gaming videos to Everyplace and share them.
In the end, the simple game mechanics and one-touch controls make the gameplay addictive and each session is a soothing experience. If you are looking for a light game to kill some spare time, Stick World is worth a look.
Get Stick World for free from the App Store.
