    Stick it to The Man!
    From charming to tedious
    Stick it to the man is an adventure game where you play as Ray... a hard hat tester
    The game starts with him getting hit on the head, to find himself in this dream worth with a pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his head... and of course you have to figure out exactly what is going on…
    This opening tutorial level takes you through the basics...
    And is honestly what I wish the entire game was… a straight forward adventure platformer.. but sadly it isnt
    This is a game is told across 10 different chapters and is all about readings minds and trading items...
    It’s about 4 hours long and is full of humor which makes it so enjoyable…
    Your sticky hand can be used to grab thumb tacks to reach higher locations in a levels, but more importantly its used to read characters minds, and snatch their thoughts in the form of a sticker…
    As an adventure game you’re basically running around an area, using your map to see locations you haven’t been to yet and interacting with everything you can, listening to everyone’s thoughts until eventually someone thinks of an item you can grab and take it to the person that needs that item.. They’ll then either think of a new item or drop an item you need for someone else... and the cycle continues...
    It’s a really fun cycle, definitely one of my favorite ways an adventure game is delivered... you aren’t really combining items.. Just listening to characters, their needs, and providing them with those items to eventually be able to get what you need to move onto the next section…
    However… listening to characters gets old really fast…
    Dialog can go on for what feels like forever…
    Thankfully you are able to just fast forward thoughts, which is what I ended up doing for more than half of the game...
    he mind reading novelty quickly wore off for me…
    but you’re not the only one that knows about your sticky hand...
    There are of course bad guys after you too, and you’re able to read their minds to put effects on them like temporarily putting them asleep so you can sneak past them..
    At first they’re a nice little challenge for you to overcome every once in a while... but by the games end they just become a nuisance in your way...
    As the game wants to annoying you with like 5 of them at once…
    Though I was over this game long before its conclusion…
    This is still a really clever and charming game…
    There’s a story and mystery that keeps you going forward, the adventure aspects are delivered wonderfully and the writing is guaranteed to make you laugh here and there…
    I give Stick it to the Man!
    A 7.5/10

    Stick It to the Man! has all the makings of a fantastic game.

The gameplay is your garden-variety 2D puzzle-platformer but with a twist: a knock on the head has caused your character, Ray, to have a large pink hand stick out of his head. This hand is used as a grapple to travel around the world, and can pick up stickers to solve puzzles and others' problems, usually by reading peoples' minds, in an attempt to save the world and Ray's girlfriend, Arlene. This mechanic isn't particularly original, but it is used very effectively throughout the game. The art style is reminiscent of LittleBigPlanet, the world being completely made of cardboard with corkboard pins used as grappling points. The most engaging part of the game, though, has to be the voice acting. It is seriously good and makes the whole world come alive and really fun to explore. I had a ball just listening to all the citizens' thoughts, laughing out loud at the wonderful humour and the wittiness of the monologues. But with all of this positivity, there must be something that keeps the game from getting a perfect score - and that is the length of the game. It took me just six hours to beat, and I was going extremely slowly, having fun listening to all of the monologues and exploring the cardboard environment. It is unfortunate that there isn't even a small inkling of bonus material, no secret cutscene, nothing beyond the main game. A little disappointing, but this doesn't detract from the overall quality of the game, which really is very high. I recommend Stick It to the Man! to anyone looking for a short adventure with amazingly witty humour in the form of a puzzle-platformer. Really great game and much enjoyed. Expand

    Stick it to the man is such a brilliant unique game, featuring amazing voice acting, lovely game-play mechanics and a good length for how much it costs and its certainly a game that you think about after completing it because it has so much character to it and its just very enjoyable.

    Firstly, this game has an incredible cast of voice actors that do a superb job. This game was just like watching my favorite cartoons from Nickelodeon and early Cartoon Network. Some great dark humor and a fair number of subtle references from all sorts of pop culture are also thrown in. As far as gameplay, this is a very simple Point-and-Click style of adventure.

If you're familiar with Sierra games, then you will understand the basic game play of "Try everything, and you'll end up with your quest items eventually". There are a few stealth puzzles that are slightly difficult, but most of your time will be spent running around reading minds, grabbing stickers, and then placing those stickers.

    This is a short game...maybe 4 hours if you get stuck on something. I want more of it. Great style, fun story, terrific writing, and impeccable voice actors.

    We need more games like this on the Wii U! Great voice acting, smart puzzles, and a jazzy soundtrack with just a smidge of platforming thrown in! Having the map on the GamePad and using the pad to read minds is REALLY cool. I hope the series continues as I loved every minute of it! Worth the download!

    Maybe Stick It To The Man is just a simple platformer with only slightly challenging puzzle elements that can be finished in a couple of hours, but thanks to its quantity and quality of humor and jokes, to me it was one of the best eShop experiences I’ve played on my Wii U.

    Stick It To The Man! is a great adventure game whose only crime is that it's over before you know it.

    Stick It To The Man is a great downloadable titles with plenty of actual laughs and some engaging gameplay to match. With so much that could have gone wrong, you owe it to yourself to check out the game that got so much right.
