Majority of casual mobile games are known for being difficult. You often hear they’re easy to get into but you die repeatedly before you can get anywhere. Stickman Hook is not what you’d call too easy, but developer Madbox seems to have gone out of their way so you can play and advance without pulling your hair.
Stickman Hook is a 2D game where the goal is to “hook” into points and go up. Tap the screen to swing up and get to the end of the level. That’s all you need to do, tap and tap until you reach the top. Sounds simple and the first few levels are. But as you might expect some more strategy is needed to get further, and there are a lot of levels here.
For instance, it’s fun to swing as fast as you can, but it can be your undoing. One of the ways to avoid this is to slow down. Fortunately, the game’s mechanics make this easy to do. When you find a point to attach to, let Stickman hang there for a while then proceed up. And there’s no need to worry about running out of time since there’s no time.
The meter shows how far you’ve gone, and it’s a great incentive to keep going. If you have been frustrated by other casual games that cause more frustration than fun, you’ll be in for a nice surprise with Stickman Hook as it rewards you.
