DjinnWorks offers a large selection of stick and sketch-themed sidescroller games for the iOS. One of their most popular titles is Wingsuit Stickman, an aptly-named app for the iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone. Remember that sweet wingsuit scene in Transformers 3? Take the same approach in Wingsuit Stickman, by flying through each zone, avoiding obstacles while collecting points to advance. Here’s the lowdown on Wingsuit Stickman: It is $0.99 through iTunes, runs on iOS devices rocking version 4.0 or later, offers over 25 different levels, sports retina graphics, has physics ragdoll effects, in-game achievements, leader boards and more. So, is it worth purchasing? Read on!
I’ve always wanted to try wingsuit flying, but I’m not the type to jump off a cliff or tower. However, Wingsuit Stickman provided a nice, entertaining escape to the sport through my iOS. Zones feature obstacles of many sorts to avoid, along with rewards to “hit” throughout. At the end of each level is a target you must strike to move onward. It starts out fairly slow, but picks up pace as the levels progress. It can be very tricky navigating the tight confines of some corridors. You’ll need to master all the controls, including the sensitive tilt control and slow-down/brake tap control to beat these later levels. There are even environmental effects to take into consideration, with rainstorms, updrafts, volcanoes and more! Graphics are quite impressive, with retina display support, and feel like a children’s sketchbook come alive, in a good way. Audio and music beats add a great feel to this app. Overall, Wingsuit Stickman is a soaring good time on the iOS!
In this day and age of “freemium” apps, with most of the good content locked behind “in-app purchase” walls, Wingsuit Stickman offers a little more freedom. All of the levels are available to be played through the initial download. The in-app purchases will unlock all zones for you, without you needing to play through them all initially though. Coin packs and other features may be purchased through the in-app store as well.
Developer DjinnWorks offers a winner of an app with Wingsuit Stickman. The whimsical graphics, soaring game play, high replay value and low cost really helps this app stand out. So, to answer my initial question: Is it worth purchasing? Yes!
