Ballistick is an homage to the stick figure flash videos of the early 2000’s. It combines tactical realism and over-the-top violence to capture the absurdity of the era. The player will navigate multiple planes of two dimensional combat as they gun their way to the objective. Be sure to take cover when the gun runs dry, because a reload isn't just a click away. Each action of the reload sequence requires input from the player, from pulling out magazines to chambering rounds. The player will even have to pump shotguns and pull the pin out of grenades. Ballistick is reexamining the way we design gun mechanics. So keep your head down, and stick it to 'em.

Main Capsule

The days of stick figure combat have finally returned. Today, the side scrolling tactical shooter, Ballistick, hits stores.

Ballistick combines over-the-top stick figure gore (typical of the era) with extremely realistic gun mechanics and tactical gameplay. The player must hop from cover to cover, intelligently taking out their targets, either via stealth or brute force.

Ballistick also offers gun mechanics rarely seen in games today. Each action requires the proper steps to complete. Want to pump a shotgun? You must hit the back key to cock it back, then forward to cock it forward. Want to reload a magazine? You must hit down to drop the magazine out, up to lift it in, and forward to reengage the bolt (if you fired the last round).

These mechanics offer an entirely new layer of depth to the game that 2D games of this type are sorely lacking. Combine these mechanics with unique gadgets like ECM Jammers, a snake cam, claymores, and even grenades, and you have gameplay that will keep you coming back again and again.

  • Infiltrate enemy strongholds
  • Massacre enemies with ten different weapons/gadgets
  • Stealth or guns blazing, you decide
  • Live the animations that you loved as a kid
  • Intensely realistic gore and gun mechanics
  • Manually add shells to your shotgun, drop the clip out of your M4, or toggle your safety

Relive the glory days of flash stick animation and kill some stick figures while you're at it.
