The author of this game said that it is a good game (several times on a forum), so I thought "What the heck, why not check it out?" That's what I did. Read below if it was worth it or not.

The controls for “Stickfighter” are okay, but it lacks the speed to be real fun. Also, if you run to close to your opponent, you just hit through him. And when he is on the other side where you started, you just can't hit him anymore (you only can hit to one direction). The AI is not the smartest and it seems that it does some random things.
Points: 4/10 ... Just a standard basic stick figure game

The menu has a nice interface, but besides that the graphics are really poor. As you can see, some ASCII characters represent the player and enemy. Other than that is not much too say about it.
Points: 3/10 ... Nice menu, bad in-game graphics (ASCII)

After initially running “Stickfighter,” I was surprised by a rather decent menu for a basic game (not that boring TI standard menu). So it starts of quite nice. But then I just let the calc run without pressing something, for two minutes or something, and BOOM!, there it was: A nice "ERR: Memory" bug. On the other hand, who runs a game without pressing something for two minutes except me? Next point is the credits menu. A waste of memory I say cause the author is named at the startup screen and the readme already. There is also a problem in the “Help” menu.. The following text is in the first sentence: "Left: Right". Don't ask me what this means. Other than that nothing special about the game. Maybe the author could add some different enemies?
Points: 3/10 ... Good menu, but minor bugs and waste of memory.

While the author makes a good first attempt, the game surely needs some improvements.

My advice: Only download it for the nice menu :).
Points 10/30 ... Nice attempt, but I think it needs a lot of improvements.
