There are many shooter flash games out there, but most of them don't have a story or some sort of plotline. Luckily, Hitstick 2 is not part of that group. This game focuses on story as much as it does on gameplay and the result is a great game which really lets you get involved.
Another great thing about Hitstick 2 is that you don't have to follow a specific pattern. You can decide what you want to do and how you will do it. Of course, there are some specifics which you have to respect, but this won't affect you. A briefing for the mission will appear at the beginning of the stage. You will receive the targets' name and the objective. For your first Hitstick 2 mission, you will have to kill a person and as many of his guards as you wish. You can carry two weapons and you have to make your pick from these options: the Beretta, an AK-47, a M16 and the Dragunov sniper rifle. After you make your decision, you can start the mission. You can move around the map, but only from screen to screen. This basically means that you have to shot the bad guys first and decide where to go later. You can reload your weapon with the space bar and you will fire with the left mouse click. In Hitstick 2 the weapons can be changed by clicking on the top right side of the screen, under the items menu. If you get lost, take a look at the mini map from the left side of the screen.
