title (EN)Stick it to the Man
synopsis (EN)It can’t be much fun to discover you’ve got a ‘pink spaghetti arm’ sticking out of your head, but that’s the hand Ray Wood’s been dealt in crazy platform puzzler Stick it to the Man, available to download from Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
After being bashed on the bonce by a mysterious object, Ray wakes up in hospital, only to discover a new appendage attached to his brain. Better – or should that be worse? – yet, he’s able to read minds. And that may be his only out, as he finds himself framed for his girlfriend’s murder, surrounded by shadowy thugs, and most definitely on the run from ‘The Man’. Inhabiting a platforming world made from paper and stickers, Ray is able to fold and tear the structures around him, and his spaghetti arm is handy when it comes to clasping platforms or swinging from push-pins. Better yet, he can peel stickers from the world around him and attach them to objects and people to solve puzzles: if a disgruntled goon is blocking your way, slap a friendly dog’s mouth on his face to improve his mood so he lets you pass! It’s a puzzling world, and no mistake… Ray can also learn people’s motives with his new-found telepathy. Pick up the Wii U GamePad, and it’ll switch to mind-reading mode – hold it up to your TV and search for characters, then zoom in on their brains to read their thoughts or straight-up pluck them from their heads! It’s an appealing skill that’ll help Ray escape sticky situations, as he tries to evade the host of crazies that populate this outlandish, aberrant town. When you’re not picking peoples’ brains, you can also find your way around with a helpful map on the GamePad – or you can play off-TV altogether! With a curious eye on retro run-and-jump action, Stick It To The Man contains an insane amount of humour that constantly threatens to tear the very folds of its world. Is Ray cut out for life on the lam? Can he escape the bind he’s in? Will he ever discover why The Man wants him pulped? There’s only one way to find out – get stuck in!
*Meet colourful, crazy characters when you go on the run in an old-school, platforming world.
*Use your pink spaghetti arm to fold the world, attach stickers, and escape "The Man."
*Read characters’ minds by sweeping your TV screen with the Wii U GamePad.
