Review: Stealth Inc. is an inviting entry in an often daunting genre
19 January 2013
Excerpt: Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark is one of those games that does very little wrong, but it hardly excels at any of the things that it does right. That's not a bad thing, though. This is, for all intents and purposes, a rewarding little puzzle-platformer that I urge you to check out.
Excerpt: Players inhabit a series of interchangeable clones who need to explore a complex facility that is fairly sentient and determined to stop them via any possible means, ranging from walls that close it to laser beams that turn the squishy human bastards into a kind of meat paste.
Pros: + Mix of platforming and puzzle game, + Art style, + Soundtrack
Cons: - Some very difficult sections, - Graphical quality
Excerpt: This year has seen a bit of a stealth renaissance, with games like Dishonored and Mark of the Ninja showing how much fun can be had from staying unseen. Stealth Bastard Deluxe, a newfangled version of a cult freeware prototype, arrives as a late-year addition to that roster.
Summary: Stealth Bastard is a good game, but it feels like it's missing something. The puzzles are challenging and well made but they lack any feeling of reward upon figuring them out, and even those who relish getting their arses handed to them in games will get tired of it quickly.
Conclusion: The Short Version: Stealth Bastard Deluxe is a triumphant fusion of pure stealth, cerebral puzzling and technical platforming, making it an essential purchase for fans of both genres and one of the most exciting indie games of 2012.
Pros: Pure, satisfying stealth meets well-crafted puzzles and responsive platforming, Compelling, 80 campaign levels, level editor and 1000+ community downloads for £6.99
