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.
