How your character looks is entirely down to you, and although the game is called Draw a Stickman you can draw a much more complex design if you wish. As you progress you acquire different pencils that utilise the elements to manipulate your world: from growing plants with the water pencil, to creating wind to blow things down.
At times you can add equipment to your character, and although it says draw a pickaxe, there is nothing stopping you from giving him a banana to do the same job. This game gives you a lot of options for self expression.
As well as the main quest there is also side missions to complete, and they are all puzzle based. Work out which pencil to use to reveal a path or save an animal or operate some machinery. There are also fighting sections where you need to defeat the end of level boss. This game looks cute and childlike but the puzzles are complicated and require some lateral thinking.
The series is available on different systems:
- Draw a Stickman: Epic (2013) iOS, Android, PC, Mac.
- Draw a Stickman: Epic 2 (2015) on Nintendo Switch, Wii U, PC, iOS, Android, Xbox, PS4.
- Draw a Stickman: Epic 3 (2020) on Android, iOS, PC, Nintendo Switch.
Having your own drawings come to life is a unique experience and will appeal to a wide age range, but the puzzles are more suitable for older children and adults.
