Stickman Trials will provide you with hilarious and exciting moments. The app is a bike simulator; the player has to overcome obstacles which come up during the course. So far nothing new. The game is addicting. It’s not particularly difficult to finish the courses, but the player needs to run against the clock in order to score achievement stars. There are objectives which will only be achieved if new two-wheel vehicles are acquired, and to do this the player has to meet certain goals, such as like the app’s Facebook page, and so on. The app has an easy, friendly-player, intuitive interface. All of this kind of compel us to play once again. The game creators are the Estonian Fun Factory Creative Mobyle.
To try it out, you have to go to the Google Play Store, download it for free, install it on your device, and that’s it—you are ready to go. It’ll be asked from you to register with your Gmail or Facebook account. This makes it possible to follow your friends feats and compete against them. We can follow the app’s news on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social network websites, and it’s easy to post game images. We can take great pictures when the avatar falls down.
As I said before, the interface is very interactive: once we initiate the app there will be a menu displaying the options “play”, “multiplayer”, “store”, “options”, and “Credits”. If you want to play by yourself, all you have to do is to press Play, buy a bike and go through the maps/levels, moving up every time you get to the end of a course. At Multiplayer mode, you can race a random course against an opponent, who can be someone invited by us or somebody else chosen randomly. At this game mode, wins the one who makes it first. At the Store, we can buy new options to our game, which are basically objects. They’re not indispensable, though. The menu Options option offers the player the possibility to change the game’s language and to control sound track and sound effects. The Credits tell us the names of those involved in the development of this application. The game is suitable for all ages, and it has a graphic environment dedicated to young players. But it is still an interesting game to adults thanks to the difficulty level. When playing you have the “Garage” option, which offers you the chance to buy new motorcycles or bicycles.
The app runs smoothly on the cell phone, and takes almost 120 MB of RAM memory. The battery consumption stroke me as a bit excessive. However, it’s a game we’re talking about here, and as in cases like this, battery consumption is always an issue.
To sum up, I urge the readers to try this app, because I bet they will have a good time playing Stickman Trials. On the pros column, I would check fluidity, difficulty level, and the fact it’s a friendly-user app. On the “almont-cons” column, I would mark lack of realism of some obstacles and being excessively difficult at some levels. But you should try it out anyway. I am at the level 16.
