Ah yes… the stick-figure shoot ‘em up. Just you, a gun, and an endless supply of stick figures to plow down for your cathartic gaming pleasure. This type of game would hardly be familiar to a classic gamer, as the genre – if you can call it that – emerged very recently. Games like this first sprang up on sites like Miniclip and MoFunZone in the early 2000s and they arrived at a time when browser games’ performance first began to peak. And since it was nearly impossible at the time to steam high-end graphics, folks had to settle for killing stick men.
