    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.

    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.

    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 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.
