How do you move?
According to comments from the bored.com's website, one of the most common questions goes something like this 'How the hell that damn stickman moves?' This is a point and click game guys! In point and click games you don't use keyboard but your mouse. You click at certain things on the screen to pick them up or to activate some animations. This game is basically interactive flash animation with multiple choices.
On the other hand I am absolutely positive that players know what point and click games are and how they work. Yet ppl easily get confused on this game and decide to leave before the game even started. That is definitely another of developer's mistakes. They should have given you few animated hints at the start just to point you in the good direction.

For that reason I am going to provide not only the video walkthrough for Epic Stickventure, but also an image which represents drawn instructions on how to solve level 1.
Music & Sounds
Sounds are just fine. I kind a liked the screams our stickman makes while slices his opponent in two. Effects you hear during fights and battles are quite nicely done. But the background music is way to repetitive and it makes the whole game looks and feels a but cheaper that it really is. There are those nice buttons of salvation called 'mute' and 'play' located in the top left corner, but on my greatest disappointment - they actually don't work quite as I expected. If you kill the music, you shut off the effects too. OK, you can always turn down the volume on your speakers, but this game should not be played in the absolute silence neither. I hope bored.com will fix these problems any time soon, before the game (if at all) gets too viral.
The first level was quite easy. First, you need to click on the spot in the ground right underneath the stickman, so he can jump off the hill and take the sword out of the tree stump. Once he gets armed, another red devilish stickman also armed with a sword jumps into scene. It's enough to click on him, and the menu will offer you two options: to slice or to plunge the enemy. Whatever the option you choose, your hero will show no mercy and the scene gets really bloody. This is a good moment to warn those young players who are not really supposed to play games which contain blood, or two warn their parents to not let them to. The point is that the enemy's head end up separated from the rest of the body parts, and the blood fills up the space in between. I am completely aware that this is actually the only reason why some guys play games like these in the first place.
Than you get to the level 2. No matter how many times I tried to win, I always end up dead in this scene - which is not good. I am at the level 2 and I already need to make that sneaky peak into the video walkthrough. That's both humiliating and frustrating, especially for an avid gamer like myself. Do you hear me bored.com? The solution is to click the opponent's head at the right moment, which is extremely hard while he's running and jumping. The only good news is that I won the achievement trying to win, probably for getting killed more than a 10 times in a row - 'failcore'. When I finally did it, I made a screenshot as a proof, so you can see it below between the screnshots.
I leave you at the level 3 to cope with it all by yourself. By that time you should have taken better weapon from that chest. A 'shoot-hook', according to the in-game guidelines, is meant to be used both as a devastating weapon and as a climbing gear.
