Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure Deluxe is a title that is quirky, if nothing else, and seems to pride itself on being silly fun.

Play Stikbold for a few hours and you'll still be doing exactly what you did at the start, exactly the same way, and while there's nothing offensive about that, it's also not particularly memorable.

While Stikbold is a worthwhile multiplayer experience, the cooperative adventure mode is what sets it apart from other multiplayer-focused titles. Players looking for a primarily single-player experience will be disappointed by the adventure's short length. However, those seeking a compact experience and a go-to party game for groups of multiple skill levels will find Stikbold up to the task

Stikbold is a great party game, allowing six players to battle it out with simplistic controls that are accessible for all, regardless of age and gaming experience. The audio is superb, especially the music, and it has a coherent art direction. The game falls down a bit with a lacklustre story mode and character design, but most importantly the performance can be quite shaky. Overall you can't go wrong with Stikbold for a fun party game, though if you intend to play alone then there won't be much for you here.
