Attack is the best form of defense in Stick Wars, a challenging online strategy game where your goal is to lead an army of Stickmen to victory against a whole host of enemies. In each level, both you and your enemy has a monument (statue), and it’s your mission to destroy the opponent’s monument while defending your own. This game employs the two different elements of classic war game strategy: Tower defense and all out attack.
You’ll need to fine-tune your thinking skills as you plan how to defend your base while also doing damage to the enemy. Your line of defense must be strong enough to withhold an attack, but your troops must also be varied enough to cause your opponent problems. Because you have to plot on both fronts, this game should help to exercise your multi-tasking skills as well as your ability to work under pressure. Use your Gold Mine to purchase troops and upgrades as you go along. So, you think you’ve got the strategy skills to outfox your enemy? Well then, show us what you’re made of Colonel!
How to Play: Select your Level of Difficulty: Normal, Hard, Insane. Your base it at the left of the game screen, the enemy is on the right (scroll between them using your computer mouse). You must earn gold in order to purchase troops and upgrades, and to do that, you must mine the area around your monument. The stone blocks around your monument are rich in gold, so hire miners to extract (get) it for you.
Use your computer mouse to click on the miners icon at the top of the game screen. Once your miners are working, a steady stream of gold comes into your piggy-bank. Use this gold to buy troops to defend your base and attack the opponent. Choose which type of troop you want at the top of the game screen. You can only have a maximum 20 troops on the battlefield at any one time. You can also switch from defense to attack by clicking on those icons. Once your troops destroy the enemy’s monument (they do this automatically once you tell them to attack), you complete the level.
Tip: Vary the type of troops you send into battle. If you send in a lot of infantry, they will be picked off by archers. Maybe send in two infantry troops at a time, with an archer of your own to back them up.
