Ultimate Stick Fight
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
If you’re an iPhone gamer, you’re aware of the fact that there are a ton of games available on the App Store and it’s seemingly impossible to try your hand at every single one. If you’re longing to check out a great game that will test your reflexes as well as your fighting skills, this is one that you definitely can’t afford to pass up.
Concept and Gameplay:
As a fan of hack and slash games, I have to admit that the genre is great for anyone and everyone who’s just looking to kick some bad guy butt. Whether you’re a button masher like me or you have every special move combo memorized, you’re sure to enjoy playing Ultimate Stick Fight.
Prepare to fight by selecting which character you’d like to play. You can choose between Ryan, the stick wielding warrior or Slash, the sword master. Each character comes with different fight moves that you have to master as you progress through 40 stages of gameplay. You can also choose between three difficulty levels (easy, medium, and hard), and stages get harder as you progress through them. I won’t say I had a difficult time playing on easy mode, but it definitely became a challenge after a while.
One of the things I love the most about Ultimate Stick Fight is the fact that you can customize almost everything about your character. It seems like there isn’t a single stat that can’t be upgraded or modified. From hit points to power and even your fighting skills, you can spend coins and stars to upgrade them. Coins earned by killing bad guys and stars are accumulated based on how well you ranked on a stage.
Ultimate Stick Fight is packed with great features that help make it a class of its own. For example, I love the retro graphics and great sound effects. The gaming environment definitely reminds me of similar games from way back in the day, all the way down to earning massive combos and dealing critical blows to your foes.
As I mentioned before, you can play the game as two different characters, meaning Ultimate Stick Fight essentially becomes two games in one. If you’re looking for challenging gameplay and enhanced playability, this has to be the most valuable feature in the game. You’ll definitely spend hours mowing down enemies and fine tuning your character into a powerful fighting machine of raging destruction. If that doesn’t sound cool, I don’t know what does!
Ultimate Stick Fight is available to download from the App Store for only $0.99, which is an incredible deal given the fact that you can play the entire game two different ways. I definitely hope the game makes its way to the iPad at some point in the future, but for now it works really well on the iPhone and I can’t recommend enough for anyone who loves beat ’em up games. Note that there is also an Android version of this game. You can visit the game’s Facebook page here.
Ultimate Stick Fight is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
