I love this game. Its easy and fun. There is blood and bad ways to die. When you fling people up in the air they smash in the ground and blood comes up. and with a spear they fall in the the spear in the head but you may lower the blood to low medium or high. so over all its a fun and easy game to play.

STICKWARS 2 doesn't do much to improve upon the original. The first StickWars game was a novel idea with an irreverently clever use of stick figures. This sequel has basically the same gameplay, but adds a lot of color and ramps up the difficulty factor (the game was way too hard when first released, but was updated to make it much more manageable). Frankly, the colors don't help much -- the original black stick figures had a more classic quality to them and were more appealing to look at. It's possible that people who finished the first game and want to try a more challenging followup might like the increased difficulty, but newcomers will most likely just get frustrated. The original StickWars is often available as a free download -- and it's a better game.
