Stickman Legacy: Giant War is a free action game for Android by developer iStar Technology Investment Co Ltd. In other Android action games, you control anime characters like in One Piece Fighting Path, or soldiers as in Combat Master Mobile. In this title, however, you control stick figures.
These stick figures are quite unique because they’re very detailed and represent characters such as ancient warriors, kings or zombies. Your objective is to fight for supremacy against other clans and bosses, and get rewards. Different gameplay modes, including survivor mode and boss mode, keep the fun going.
Colourful and highly-detailed graphics
One of Stickman Legacy: Giant War highlights is the graphics. Both characters and backgrounds are vibrant and detailed. Everything looks as if you were watching a 2D cartoon about fighting.
Animations are good, too, and you can clearly see the trajectory of your sword slashing and other weapons hitting the target with colourful and detailed visuals. That said, because of the nature of the stick figures, it can feel generic after a while.
Many features for a simple game
Even though this game’s premise is simple, there are some things that keep the action flowing. Several game modes make it a unique experience for each playthrough. For example, in survivor mode, you need to be the last one standing, whereas in campaign mode, you follow different missions.
There are lots of different characters and weapons, too, such as giant stickmen, master archers, and stick clan warriors. You can increase these characters' abilities and their weapons.
People love fighting games and stick people. Stickman Legacy: Giant War is a successful marriage of both concepts. It has the right amount of content, so it doesn’t overstay its welcome, and yet there’s plenty of variety within the game, thanks to the different weapons and gameplay modes.
However, some people complain about the number of ads you have to endure, and there are also in-game purchases that can give you an edge. That said, the title offers a lot at no cost. It’s suitable for anyone looking for a fun fighting experience with generic characters.
