As what the title of the game suggests, your goal is to master walking on stilts and overcome all the challenges you will encounter along the way. The game brings you to a series of challenging and tricky levels with a varying range of difficulties. Using your trusty stilts, reach the finish line safely and quickly. If you think you are skillful enough to win this game, feel free to explore Walk Master and see what else the game has to offer.
Simple, fun yet surprisingly tricky. This is how you can perfectly describe Walk Master. It follows a very simple set of mechanics. Despite the apparent simplicity, players are still strongly encouraged to establish an effective strategy to win all the challenge, otherwise, you might find yourself exploring the same level over and over. Walk Master is generally a physics-based action game and it’s also unique of its kind. As mentioned above, the objective is to help your character reach the finish line without falling onto the ground or without breaking your stilts.
The game control is what makes Walk Master a little bit tricky. Since you are walking with two poles or stilts, you must keep your balance perfectly to prevent the character from falling. What makes it even more challenging is the fact that you are only using one finger to control everything. You advance on the side-scrolling map by simply tapping the screen. The poles will advance in an alternate manner and you can manipulate the distance between the two. It is all up to you if you want to stretch the poles wide or you if you have to make the steps small depending on the obstacles you need to overcome.
Colorful Characters to Unlock
Walk Master is generally simple yet frustratingly challenging at the same time. Interestingly, all failed attempts will not affect your overall score. The mere objective of the game is to help the character reach the finish line no matter how long it takes and no matter how many times you failed in the process. Trails will become more and more challenging as you progress. You will soon encounter moving mechanisms and other challenging obstacles that will hinder you from reaching your goal. Good thing, you can take advantage of the Checkpoints. The trail is composed of multiple checkpoints so every time you fail, you will no longer start from the beginning but on the last checkpoint instead.
Matching its colorful maps are equally-adorable characters that you can unlock. Simply tap the character icon to access the Wild Walkers page. You can unlock a new character using the virtual gold coins that you collect every time you completed a trail. Most characters are worth 200 coins or you can also randomly unlock a character with lesser price. To top it all, you can also customize your character by purchasing new accessories. Walk Master, however, is not really generous with their rewards but they cleverly give an option to players to watch reward videos to double up their earnings.
Aside from the main campaign, Walk Master also features Challenges. These are special-made levels that are far more challenging than the average level. Interestingly, the challenge can only be accessed upon reaching certain levels. Generally, there are 13 challenges to complete and you can access one for every 10 completed levels or trails. These levels are notably much longer than the typical ones. Completing each challenge allows you to earn a medal.
The rate of difficulty will drastically increase as you progress. You will be introduced to an even more challenging set of obstacles. Some of which includes deadly spikes, moving platforms, floating logs, bees, monkeys, lava and many more. Mastery plays a crucial role in this game to maximize your chances of winning. Luckily, the game is not being timed and the number of fails will not really affect your progress which gives this game a remarkable replay value and commendable longevity.
Walk Master is generally a simple yet fun and tricky game that will put your skills on a test. Appearance-wise, the game features visually stunning details. The map is dynamically changing and you will explore different sceneries for each trail. To top it all, the game will introduce us to lovely cartoonish characters and you can personally customize. If you are looking for a light game that will not consume much of your phone storage and works well even without an Internet connection, Walk Master is definitely a perfect fit.
