Dragon Nest Studio, creators of Ultimate Stick Fight on iOS, have unleashed a new character, Slash, for its beat-’em-up scroller. The playable new hero wields a sword and gun, sports all-new animations, and a slew of original combo moves for long-time players to master. The Ultimate Stick Fight game update also brings enhanced support for the iPhone 5 screen, new graphical effects like blood splatter, and improved intelligence for the stick figure enemy army. Gameplay improvements include the ability to use jump attacks to counter thrown weapons like dynamite.
“As soon as you see Slash outfitted in that purple bandana you know he’s no ordinary stick figure warrior,” says the iOS title’s developer, Ray Chambers. “Slash can shoot a gun, has brand new combos, and offers a wider attack range, while the original hero Ryan still bests him in agility and speed.”
The novel addition of Slash, as well as plenty of enhanced combos and upgrades, breathes new life into what was already a unique title for iOS, blending combo-driven fighting with a beat-’em-up scroller. It is still the only game in the stick-fighting genre that boasts a real physics engine, so that enemies bounce realistically of the walls and objects in the environment can be thrown.
“Players on the App Store are saying Slash’s unique skills, awesome animation, and gameplay makes Ultimate Stick Fight like a brand new game, and we agree,” he adds.
The game’s smooth animation, effortlessly mixing cartoon-like stick figures with detailed and interactive backgrounds, and many stages of play have won it rave reviews. The ability to upgrade weapons, combos, and skills is also much appreciated by fans.
“We worked hard on the game mechanics to make it fun to play over and over, while also a challenge to master,” explains Chambers. “As you play you earn coins that you can exchange for new combos and upgrades to your existing combos.”
