  • Summary: Meet Ray, he lives in a world where everything is made out of paper and stickers. One day he has an accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain. This gives him awesome powers and he can suddenly change the world around him by folding it, tearing it, pulling stickers off and sticking them elsewhere! And if that weren't enough, Ray can also read peoples minds! Digging into the brains of his fellow citizens, Ray can hear their thoughts and use that to his advantage. Unfortunately, Ray doesn't have much time to get to grips with his new abilities. He is framed by 'The Man' with a crime he didn't commit, and is on the run. Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation? Expand

    Which is to say: Stick It To The Man may aim to make you laugh, but it's the gameplay and the graphics that make it worth a purchase.

    Stick It to the Man is the funniest adventure game you'll play this year!

    Stick It to The Man! contains all the humour of a Tim Schafer game, mixed with some intuitive controls, and a wonderful melding of platform and point-and-click genre norms.

    Stick It To The Man is a short, uncomplicated project that lives and dies by the quality of its writing, and to its credit, that writing is strong enough to support the entire experience.

    It can be a little inconsistent in terms of both actions and puzzles but late entry or not this is one of the funniest and best-presented adventures of the year.

    Stick it to the Man is a really weird game, and that’s part of the reason why I enjoyed it for what it was. It’s like watching a particularly dark episode of Duckman or Rocko’s Modern Life, and while it may not be as classic as the subject material, it’s still definitely worthy of the same conversation. I kind of just wished it knew what it really wanted to be.

    Witness humorous story and meet crazy characters in a weird world where thoughts and dreams become stickers. Gameplay is simple -- you will be exploring surroundings, listening to people thoughts, using items and sometime running from guards -- which together makes relaxing experince that could leave smile on your face.

    As the game begins we are introduced to Ray who works as a safety helmet tester. Following an accident he finds a giant pink arm coming out the top of his head which can be used, not only move objects around, but also to read people's minds.

    Stick it to the Man is another of those games that is difficult to give a score to. In terms of gameplay it is fairly simplistic and largely involves listening to the thoughts of the NPC's in order to solve puzzles that mostly just involve moving stickers around in order to trigger next event or conversation. Aside from a few irritating sequences in which you have to try to make your way past 'The Mans' henchman even the platforming is straightforward with regular checkpoints ensuring there is no real punishment for failure.

    Clearly influenced by the work of Tim Schafer it is in the presentation in which Stick it to the Man really excels however. Everything in Ray's world is made from paper, making for a unique looking game, and many of the characters inner thoughts are pretty funny (and often slightly disturbing) meaning that most players will actively try to read the minds of any NPC they can. After a short while I began to see the gameplay as simply a means to an end and it was the games wacky sense of humour that kept me playing through to the final chapter more than anything else and, at four to five hours in length, it lasted for just the right amount of time.
