A new take on an old friend Pick up sticks? Seems like something on a four year old could love. Not so for this version. Quick and easy to master but not easy to beat. Try to get a better score each time. Fun time waster.
Fun but issues We love the game and enjoy playing against each other, but while playing a notice pops up at the bottom of the screen saying some achievement is unlocked. It prevents us from seeing the sticks to pick up. No matter what we do, it will not go away.
Constant shutdowns I get through about two games and the game stops working and interrupts my game. Also the ad on top is in the way of game play. A cute game, but has no challenge and is incredibly frustrating as it will stop working at a moments notice.
Alright I get the idea. Its cute but I started on hard and it wasn't. Not much of a reason to keep it with no challenge. Part of the real game is that since the sticks are round, you have to prevent them from rolling as well as just moving.
Good to pass the time Fun to play. Easy to game but can be made more difficult if that's what you want. Only complaint is the achievement pops up and takes up a good part of the screen and gets in the way and its the same couple over and over.
Ideal time waster This is a great game for killing time, with smooth animation and cute graphics. I like the skin points feature, it gives you a good little goal to work for. My only complaint is that often, the place where the sticks are crossing is obscured by the ad at the top. But I prefer a small ad than one that pops up between games, so if that's the price to pay for no totally obnoxious popups, so be it.
