    The best couchplay game since TowerFall. [June 2016, p.94]

    There's enough depth to keep players coming back for more, but not enough content to recommend long play sessions. A completely ridiculous, albeit short, campaign also helps round out an enjoyable package. 'Stikbold' offers up all the fun of dodgeball with the added bonus of not getting smacked in the face with a large rubber ball.

    There's nothing overly serious about Stikbold, and that is where most of the charm comes from. For a game that is nominally about Dodgeball I was overly impressed with how the developers were able to keep the experience fresh and comedic throughout.

    Stikbold! is a beautifully unique party game at its core. Though a short campaign allows you to familiarize yourself to the gameplay, it’s lacking refinement to be considered worth much of your time. Multiplayer is where the game blossoms, it becomes an outstanding display of cartoon chaos. With so many different possibilities and room for further content, it’s best played with a gaggle of mates alongside you.

    Stikbold finally gives the sport of dodgeball a credible representation in a video game. It nails the simplicity and mastery of the sport while remaining fun and humorous, but it lacks online capabilities and is just a bit too short.

    Fresh and frantic, Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure is a pleasant surprise, with moreish multiplayer and a beguiling, unique style that sets it apart in a crowded genre.

It is easy to pick up but hard to master and will be an instant classic on game nights with friends. With the current asking price the game is a steal! Highly recommend. Expand

It’s made for local co-op multiplayer and it shows, it has a few flaws but overall it’s a fun adventure and worth buying. Expand

    It is like playing Atari 2600 Combat with only slightly more depth. Not a lot here especially single player. No online.

Yes, it gets quickly boring and repetitive, but you will spend many hours in local multiplayer and mini games. Expand
