Free decision-making stickman game
Stickman Escape: Choice Story for Android is a free stickman-themed escape game from ABI Global. You play the character Lupin who’s on a mission to rescue a woman kidnapped by the shadowy Red Skull organisation, the sworn enemies of the Prime Minister.
As you set off in hot pursuit, you'll be faced with important decisions to make. They range from choosing a mode of transport to interacting with items in your fight against criminals. If you enjoy stickman-style visuals in your games, you can also check out Stickman Falling Sky Go and Stickman Rope Hero.
Graphics and animation
The graphics are simple, yet colourful. Lupin is a stickman, but he's given character by the nice facial animations the developer has created. In some scenes, you have left-to-right scrolling, and in others, you have an overhead view of proceedings. It depends on the situation that Lupin is in. The background graphics during the game are clean and fun, so the game's easy to play, even on smaller screens.
As the story progresses, you need to choose how to deal with each scenario. In the early scenes, you’ll need to choose between two options, but in later stages, there are three choices.
Based on our testing of the game, the whole decision-making process seems to be a case of trial and error. If you make the wrong decision, there's usually no obvious factor indicating why. You just have to try the other options until you find one that works and lets you progress in the game.
While we understand that developers don't normally create free apps without the expectation of remuneration via advertising, we found the ads in Stickman Escape: Choice Story incredibly annoying.
The presence of ads doesn't bother us—it's the frequency and duration that's irritating. In Stickman Escape: Choice Story, the ads between game scenes last longer than the scenes themselves.
Stickman Escape: Choice Story is fun to play for a while, but the gameplay quickly becomes boring because there's no logic in whether you make the right or wrong decision. Coupled with what we consider to be excessive advertising, this game feels more like a vehicle for generating advertising revenue rather than an exciting adventure game.
