Stick War 1EditIn a world called Ina'morata, you're surrounded by discriminate nations devoted to their individual technologies and struggle for dominance. Each nation has developed its own unique way to wage war. Proud of their unique craft, they have become obsessed to the point of worship, turning weapons to religion. Each believe that their way of life is the only way, and are dedicated to teaching their polices to all other nations through what their leaders claim as divine intervention, or as you will know it... war. The others are known as: "Archidons," the way of the archer, "Swordwrath," the way of the sword, "Magikill," the way of the mage, and "Speartons," the way of the Spear.
You are the leader of the nation called "Order" , your way is of peace and knowledge, your people do not worship their weapons as gods. This makes you a mark for infiltration by the surrounding nations. Your only chance to defend is to attack first, and obtain the technologiess from each nation along the way.
That is the voiceover for the intro of the flash game Stick Wars. It is voiced by a Magikill, in a deep croaking voice. There are 5 different kinds of units that can be used to attackin the game: The Swordwrath, the Archidion, the Spearton, the Magikill, and the Giant. There is also an attackless unit called the Miner. The Miner's job is to mine for gold and enable you to buy and train other units for attack. You start every match with at least one miner. The Swordwrath are your basic attack units.
Stick War 2 a.k.a Stick EmpiresEditFollowing the success of Stick War, a new flash game is created by Jason Whitham (CRAZYJAY) and Winston Zhang. Thus Stick Empires was born, a online multiplayer game. Like it's predecessor, or Stick War, it has the same units, but new and more advanced ones were added for new gameplay. The upgrades are also changed for balanced gameplay. Also a new empire was added which is known today as the Chaos Empire. The setting is still set at Inamorata where the Order Empire rules it but the Chaos Empire threaten its existance.
The game is currently at beta stage but is opened for the public. Once your account has been confirmed, you automatically unlocked the Order Empire and its armory. A membership that costs $3.99 per month, will unlock the Chaos Empire and its armory. The gameplay is quite easier than it's predecessor. Unlike Stick War, which you can only create 20 units, Stick Empires allows 80 units to be made.However, there are a few setbacks. For example, in Stick war 2, you now have to buy garrison archers and the maximum amount you can have (3) is less than that in the first game. Unlike any other flash games, right click is usable. Also, before you can only control a single unit, but in Stick Empires you can now control your whole army in simple left and right clicks.
- Miner- A simple miner. This unit goes to the mini mines to mine gold. Usually, the maximum gold he can collect is 100, unless you upgrade his bag.
- Swordwrath- A club man at first, but can be upgraded to a swordsman. This unit is a strong unit and other swordwraths are no match to him. Defence is good.
- Spearton- A strong unit which has a spear and a shield. He is very hard to kill. Once he throws his spear, he pulls out his sword and continues to kill.
- Archidons- A basic unit. It holds bow and arrows and shoots at the enemies with accuracy. The headshots can cause instant kill to swordwraths. You can upgrade his arrows in the armory.
- Magikill- A strong unit. He has the power to stun you in one attack. He is slow but he can spawn Minions to aid him at battle. Guaranteed loss in melee combat.
- Giants- A very big unit that carries a large club and a dead man. Its attacks doesn't cause that much damage but usually stuns the enemies. Good for destroying statues.
