    Stick it to The Man is a short adventure but one worth playing. The fun puzzles, beautiful environments, and peculiar characters makes Rae Doewood’s insane journey an extremely enjoyable and intensely hilarious experience.

    A game that manages to wrestle some originality out of the point 'n' click genre - with only limited structural problems - while making us laugh in the process, this is an all-too-rare pleasure. [Nov 2014, p.84]

    Stick it To The Man is a total blast to play. The puzzles may not be all that challenging, but the beautiful visuals, catchy soundtrack, and wonderful humour make it stick out above other adventure games.

    Stick It To The Man is a bit tiny when it comes to content as there is not a lot of it and the game is pretty easy, but it is a very original game with lots of humor and mind reading fun.

    We've had lots of trouble handling the Spaghetti Arm, but at the same time we enjoyed the superb characters and the uniqueness of the story Stick it to the Man has to offer.

    Very unique concept. Basically a 2.5D platformer with fun graphics and real cooky story line.
    Some of the speech is long winded but
    Very unique concept. Basically a 2.5D platformer with fun graphics and real cooky story line.
    Some of the speech is long winded but fortunately you can speed it up to get through it fast (makes them sound like chipmunks).
    Bottom line is that game is a fun diversion. You can finish it in 1 to 3 days. Its also priced slightly less than your average Live Arcade game.
    Here is one complaint though: After you finished the game, you can go back to get the things you missed in order to gain achievements. Unfortunately, you can't just go for THOSE things alone. You have to repeat getting everything (reading minds).

    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
