Excerpt: Stealth Inc.: A Clone in the Dark is the latest indie game for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita to feature Cross-buy and Cross-save support, so for R95 you can download the game on both consoles and access your latest save file regardless of which platform you’re playing on. This is just as well because Stealth Inc.
Excerpt: I never would’ve thought to combine stealth and platforming. From a logical standpoint, it doesn’t make much sense. After all, platforming is often about nonstop gameplay that relies heavily upon fast reflexes and lots of practice. Stealth is about patience, timing and tact. So how can the two possibly coexist? Well, developer Curve Studios has found a way and the result is pretty freakin’ awesome.
Conclusion: Much like its hero, Stealth Inc. could easily blend into a lineup of samey-feeling puzzle-platformers at a glance, but on closer examination it finds ways to conspicuously impress and entertain. Its stealth and puzzle mechanics are first rate, but its foreboding look and feel are what really set it apart. This is not one you want to miss.
Pros: Dripping with atmosphere, Responsive controls, Imaginative puzzles, Well-tuned stealth
Summary: Why would anyone mourn the death of a clone? Replicated humans are as disposable as toilet paper, after all, and only slightly more sanitary. No one would weep if a clone were to be executed by robotic sentries or crushed between moving walls. Heck, you wouldn't even be able to tell which clone met its untimely end; they all look alike.
Pros: Smart puzzles with lots of variety, High difficulty without ever feeling cheap, Tricky boss fights, Achieving high scores is fun and rewarding
