How to Play

Have you ever wondered how you can create your own action-packed stick figure animations? With Stick It Action, your dreams will surely come true. This app offers an easy to use graphic editor that allows you to manipulate the movements of stick figures.

The best animation apps for iPhone and iPad

To create your first animation, just load the app to open the storyboard editor. The app allows you to select from a set of different backgrounds including a blank canvas, a castle, a street, a warehouse, and more. You can also import a picture from the camera roll and use it as background.

Next, add any number of stick figures you need for the scene and place them on the screen. Double-tap a figure to open the movement editor. You can now manipulate its movements by using the on-screen control buttons. Double-tap the figure again to apply the movement and return to the scene.

There are dozens of available objects in the app including trees, guitars, explosions, blood spatter, and weapons. Add any object to the scene and it will be included in the final animation. You can also add sound effects to make your animations more engaging. Then, apply speech bubbles to let your stick figures talk with each other.

Once you finish a scene, take a snapshot to save it. Repeat the whole editing process while taking snapshots for every completed scene. The more frames you create, the smoother your animations will look on actual video.
