The Good Stickman Base Jumper for iOS has great physics, easy controls, and plenty of challenge as you try stick the perfect jump off of a skyscraper.

The Bad The perfect timing required for success means that once you master a level, there's little reason to do it again.

The Bottom Line If you're not afraid to repeat levels to get them just right, download this physics-based game that is both fun and extremely challenging.

Stickman Base Jumper for iOS is a physics-based game that requires perfect timing as you jump from the top of high skyscrapers to deploy your parachute just before hitting a target. The controls for the game are dead simple, requiring only that you touch the screen to perform each part of the jump process. The graphics are simple too (like in other stickman games), but the challenges in the game are anything but.

The procedure is the same for every jump, but it's your timing for each step that will make all the difference. Your little stickman starts at the edge of the jump zone, but you'll need to walk back to get sufficient run-up room for each particular jump. Every jump sequence has four steps. First, you touch to begin walking away from the edge, then touch again to select your run-up distance (where your stickman will start running toward the edge), then touch again to jump off the edge, then later, touch a final time to deploy your parachute. Your landing zone is marked off with a flag between two markers, and the closer you are to the flag the more stars you will receive for the jump. If you land outside the markers, you will fail the jump. On each jump, as in many games, you can earn a maximum of three stars, and you'll need a majority of stars for each set of levels in order to unlock the next difficulty level.
