Stick Squad 2 is another entry in the well-worn sniper genre on Android Is it worth a shot?
As for the actual gameplay Stick Squad 2 provides some pretty good sniping action. A simple control system lets you pan around the scope with a finger and there are buttons for fire and reload, although the reload button for whatever reason is very small. The rifle you use in Stick Squad 2 has a very small magazine so itâ€™s important to a make your shots count. Head shots of course are instantly fatal while sloppy body shots usually requires multiple hits to kill enemies.
Only a few missions are unlocked at once and these must be completed to unlock more. Completing a mission awards a rating and three star rating are worth much more cash. Missing even one shot usually ends any chance of a three star rating, so like real sniping this game is all about precision. The missions vary wildly in fun and challenge. For every fun snipe fest with enemies there is another mission that is dull as dishwater, such as a target shooting mission. Blowing off heads is fun, but shooting static targets isnâ€™t so much. These target shoots take place in the same levels as those used for enemies as well, so they really feel like filler.
Stick Squad 2 features an upgrade system for its guns. Coins earned in gameplay can be spent on weapons upgrades. These get expensive in a hurry but good play awards plenty of coins.
Graphically, Stick Squad 2 is slick. Unsurprisingly the game features plenty of stick figures yelling at each other and amusing/terrible voice acting. There is plenty of blood and good death animations and targets are easy enough to make out.
Stick Squad 2 is a fun game and since its free itâ€™s worth a download for some head explody action.
