Sift Heads 2 Walkthrough

In Sift Heads 2, the sequel to the popular stick game Sift Heads, Vinnie - everyone's favorite hired assassin - is back again, taking out his targets and earning a reputation. Although the name implies yet another sniper based stick figure game, this is far from the average game. While most of the other games in the genre settle for being simple, straight forward sniper games, this one takes it to a whole new level. Offering several different types of weapons you can buy with the money you earn for doing hits, lots of missions that get more and more difficult as you play and little extras thrown in to make the game even more difficult (such as the driving challenge you confront right away), this is more than a sniper game. This is a stick game at its finest; offering a little something for everyone regardless of what kind of games they're in to. With that said, it's hardly an easy game. There is a lot you need to pay attention to if you want to do well in the game. If you're easily frustrated, this might not be the game for you. It takes a fair bit of skill but if you have patience, you can develop the skills you need as you play.

If you want to do well in Sift Heads 2, it's absolutely vital that you pay attention to your mission objective. Your mission objective shows you an image of your target. Without that image, it's incredibly easy to take out the wrong person - an offense that will cost you the mission. In addition, your mission objective will also often offer you clues that will help you complete more difficult missions; especially missions that involve more than one target. In missions with multiple targets, you often have to take out those targets in a particular order or you will fair. Sometimes figuring out that order will just involve looking at the line of sight of each of your targets. This isn't terribly uncommon in sniper based stick figure games so more experienced players shouldn't have a lot of trouble with this one. For newcomers, the best way to think about it is to look at what your targets can see from where they're standing. If your first target can see the second target but the second target cannot see the first target, you want to shoot the first target before the second. If not, you risk blowing your cover or at the very least, scaring the other targets away. Read your objective carefully for clues that will keep you from messing up the mission. For example, there is a mission in which you need to take out a man running through the scene, but you need to take out an undercover cop first. Your objective shows you a picture of your primary target, but not the cop. Instead, the briefing tells you that the cop will be sitting. He's the only one in the scene that's sitting. If you fail to read that part of the objective, you'll also fair the mission.

The greatest thing about Sift Heads 2 is that although it's challenging, it never feels impossible. The most frustrating thing about this game, unlike most of the other stick games out there is that it often feels like you just about had the target and barely missed. It's frustrating to no end, but it's also what keeps you playing. You're sure that you'll get it the next time and then the time after that. You want to keep going to prove to yourself that you can do it, but also to see what the game is going to throw at you next. It keeps you on your toes which keeps it interesting. This is what helps the game avoid the typical problem many games in this genre face - getting boring or stale after the first few levels. You never quite know what's going to come next. The only problem with failing a mission repeatedly is that you can't skip the lead in clip. The clips are all entertaining and very nicely done, but after the tenth time, you've just seen it enough. I suppose in reality, that just gives you one more reason to try to figure out what the mission is asking you so you can get it done and move on.

Overall, Sift Heads 2 is one of the most addictive sniper based stick games online; offering something for everyone and always keeping things interesting. This game is just a glimpse of what the series has to offer though. Make sure you check out its predecessor and the rest of the games in the series. The story that winds throughout the series is always entertaining and gives each game a little more intrigue. You are going to have to have fairly good shooting skills to get through this one and you'll need to be a quick shot. There are a few missions that will require you to take out two or more enemies in a fairly short about of time so speed is key. If you can't quite get the hang of it at first, stick with it. This entertaining stick game is far too much fun to pass up.
