The Vast World of Online Games

By Elissa Joyce Subscribe to RSS | December 12th 2011 | Views:

When you think of online gaming, huge brands will come to mind: Blizzard, Microsoft and Jagex are just three examples of the giants of the gaming world. However there is a whole range of online games that are worked on either independently or with small organisations that deserve some more credit. To demonstrate the huge array of gaming types there are online, I’m going to explore the various games that feature stick men.

Stick Figures

One of my favourite genres of game to play is stick man games. Although you may think that the genre sounds like something a child could create, there are actually very complex and exciting games out there based around stick figures. From shooting and strategy to just plain old time-killing, online stick figure games are popular with all kinds of online game players.

A simple internet search will pull up a list of websites where you can play these games – usually flash-based – online for free. The advertisers are the guys that support the production of these free games, meaning that the playing experience for the user is fantastically hassle free and simple. If you have ten minutes to spare and can’t think of what to do, try out some stick man games – you won’t regret it.

What are some types of stick figure game?

The majority of games that are based around stick figures involve shooting. Sniper strategy games, where you have to kill stick men in a certain sequence to complete the level, are by far the most popular type of game within this genre. There are hundreds of games that involve snipering targets out there, so you’re more than likely to find one that you’ll enjoy.

The simplicity of stick figures is what makes them such a great gaming tool. The game artists will not need to work on intricate artwork, leaving the animation team free to work on complex and exciting storylines that will grip you. The strategy game, where you will have to solve puzzles and work through the levels (not necessarily with the shooting aspect involved), has proved popular with many older players. Whereas young people typically like playing action-packed shooters, it seems older players are more interested in the thinking side of game play online.

That’s great, but I can’t afford to pay for games!

That’s fine! The majority of websites that host these types of online game do so with absolutely no cost from the game player. Whereas big corporations force you to pay for their games (or at least extension packages), stick figure games are usually free.

Free? So who pays for the games?

As mentioned earlier, it’s the advertisers that essentially pay for the company to make these types of game. Small businesses don’t need huge amounts of revenue for their employees, so they can rely on the money that advertisers bring in. When you see an advert before you play your game, that’s what is paying for you to have the gaming experience!
