Stickman Ghost 2: Galaxy Wars Review

Sep 7, 2017

In a crazy world, we all need our genteel pastimes; here’s to Stickman Ghost 2: Galaxy Wars making the list. It’s set in deep space, and has all the potential trappings of a thrilling beat ’em up.

Control-wise, it is well set, with dual thumb control probably being a natural mode. There is a virtual slider for movement, and a bank of buttons for attacking and jumping. It comes together well, and the controls do not interfere with the playing area.

As far as gameplay goes, easy does it. You take control of a the main sticky character, and battle through waves and waves of faceless attackers. The options are not singular, no; there is the reliable melee method, special combos, rechargeable effects and even guns. All can be used to dispatch the enemy.

But not infinitely so. Most pieces have a timed recharge requirement, so you have to mix an match — and do do so strategically — to ensure you can get through a level. So, take them out before they reduce your lifebar to nothingness.

There are in-level power-ups that can be collected by contact, and these are quite helpful. As one gets through, newer, tougher challenges await. The attackers become otherworldy even, and it takes even more of said strategizing (as well as upgrading of skills and attributes).

It’s a game that is fairly easy to become enamored with, and not just because of its inherent simplicity; the different pieces come together just right. The achievements are logical, and increase in complexity as you play on, and splitting them into two broad categories just fits.

The upgrade system make uses of different types of currency, yes, but in the end, it boils down to the tried and true improvement of attributes so you can compete better at the more difficult higher levels.

This a a fun one. Trust us.
