Stickman Sport Games
Welcome to the Fascinating World Of Stick Sport Games!
While it is true that stick figures are especially suited to shooting action given their simplistic nature, there are several examples of stick sport games in which guns don’t enter the picture at all. There are many sports that can be approximated quite well by simple stick figures. While such figures can't compare to the realism of full-blown, 3D rendered games that currently rule the video gaming world, it is their inherent simplicity that makes them so suitable for expressing kinetic motion.
Some of the most popular stick sport games are basic simulations of real world sports such as tennis and badminton. Stick figure soccer games are especially popular, and the action can get pretty intense. In one particular version, players go against computer opponents that block their every attempt to get the ball past. If successful, you are rewarded for your efforts with a gold star and eventual victory. You can even increase your points significantly by earning a gold star with as few scoring attempts as possible.
Like many stick sport games, this soccer simulation utilizes very simple controls, with the mouse buttons being used to control pretty much everything including aiming and shooting. Far from being limiting, the basic controls actually mirror the simplicity of the game to great effect, and avoids the complicated controls that bog down so many games.
With so many people playing games on their mobile devices, it makes perfect sense for stick sport games to make the migration to the iPhone platform–and it has. One of the more interesting variations of the game is called Stickman Games: Summer Edition, and it brings classic stick figure action to the iPhone, albeit with numerous interesting twists. The object of the game is to set new records and win as many medals as you can. There is a generous list of sports to choose from, including freestyle swimming, archery, javelin throw, long jump, hurdle run, and meter dash. A simple yet highly enjoyable game, Stickman Games: Summer Edition is one of the best examples of the genre by far.
