Reviews

"Every aspect of its clever design, laugh-out-loud noir story, tiny but expressive art, and moody music work harmoniously with one another."

"The joy of Gunpoint comes from the clever ways you can make all the obstacles work to your advantage."
9.5 - Destructoid

"Gunpoint is a bracing reminder of how lovely simplicity, when exquisitely executed, can be."
9.0 - Polygon

"An outstanding puzzle game with sharp writing, beautiful music and clever mechanics."

Steam Exclusive Offer

Purchase Gunpoint from Steam and receive an exclusive Team Fortress 2 item:
The Crosslinker's Coil
Did you know: before the mercenary fashion world discovered the obvious style and mental health benefits of wearing 22 feet of powered electrical cable around your head, people once wore hatbands made from 'silk' or other barely-lethal textiles! Strange but true.

Special Edition

The Special Edition of Gunpoint includes:

  • The Soundtrack: Includes all of the game's noir-inspired spy music in high quality MP3 format.
  • Developer Commentary: When enabled, you'll find little sprites of Gunpoint's developers on every mission. Talk to us to hear a little about our thinking behind the design (Tom), the art (John), and the music (Ryan).
Caution: shooting a developer while he's talking ends his current commentary track. This kills the developer.

Exclusive Edition

The Exclusive Edition includes all of the items in the Special Edition plus:

  • The Making Of Gunpoint: a 40-minute video feature taking you through how Gunpoint developed from a one-room test game to what you play today. Featuring Gunpoint's designer playing his earliest prototypes for the first time since they were made, to great personal embarrassment and shame.
  • The Prototype Pack (Windows only): Play snapshots of Gunpoint's development at 9 different stages, including cartoony programmer art, the first conception of the hacking system, many scrapped levels, and overpowered gadgets we later cut. For hopefully obvious reasons, we can't give technical support for these.
  • Exclusive Tracks: Bonus pieces produced specially by Gunpoint's composers for this edition, mixing the game's noir style with electronic influences. Since they're not used as background music in the game, our composers took the chance to be more adventurous with these tracks.
  • The Secret Beta Access List (betas may be Windows only): adds an option in the game menu to sign up to our Secret Beta Access List. If and when future Suspicious Developments games are developed, we'll sometimes give secret beta versions only to the members of this list.

About This Game

Gunpoint is a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people. You play a freelance spy who takes jobs from his clients to break into high security buildings and steal sensitive data.

To get past security, you'll need to make creative use of your main gadget: the Crosslink. It lets you see how all the security devices in a level are wired up, and then you can just click and drag with the mouse to wire them differently. So you can connect a lightswitch to a trapdoor, then flick it when a guard walks across to make him fall through.

Key Features

  • Rewire levels to work however you want
  • Trick guards into trapping themselves or shooting each other
  • Throw yourself - and others - through plate glass windows
  • Investigate a noir-inspired story of murder and espionage over 20 missions
  • Choose what to tell your clients, including lying to trick them
  • Choose your own playstyle: quick, quiet, non-violent, no living witnesses, or any combination
  • Discover new solutions to levels that no-one else has thought of
  • Buy specialist gadgets to suit how you want to play
  • All story stuff is skippable
  • Hardest puzzles are optional
  • No bosses - everyone dies in one shot, including you

This has got to be one of my favorite games. The story is very fun to get into, especially with the witty character comments and the whole roleplaying aspect. Your decisions come into play to where you end up. Gunpoint is a short game, but how well it was made helps make up for that. Playability expands over to the community, where there's plentiful of maps and story to explore. I especially love the developer's humor shown in many parts of the game. Definitely going to try to get all the achievements.

plus u can break doors like a badass
10/10 would fall out of buildings again

- Came for the TF2 hat

- Stayed for the gameplay

Actual opinion: It's a bit pricey when it's not on sale, and it takes only a few hours to complete, but despite these factors, I definitely feel that this game is worth it (I mean, on sale, as that was when I got it). Not only does the game challenge you to think, but it also CHANGES the way you think.

My final verdict? An 8/10 (give or take a few decimals).

Very enjoyable; I'm glad I finally got around to playing it. I did require a guide for a few of the hidden achivements, and found an interesting glitch relating to vault doors, but both of those things happened after a complete playthrough.

A stealth puzzle game about jumping far distances and punching people until the game itself tells you to stop. Great concept, amazing execution. Well done developers. 10/10

Witty writing lifts this ordinary looking stealth game above most of the others. Tom Francis, the one man dev team, is amazing. A mix of puzzle, strategy, stealth, action, this is a really enjoyable experience. Once you get the hang of how to solve the puzzles, it's satisfying to beat the levels in different ways.

Gunpoint is a stealth game that throws you right into the middle of a conspiracy which threatens to take away your freedom. Murder! Did you commit it? Will the corporations manage to trap you in their web of lies? Who will make it out alive? What is your fate, and the fate of others? Gunpoint will answer all these questions as you play it again and again.

Probably one of the most interesting mixed genre games I've played in awhile. You've got stealth, you've got puzzling of a sort, and you've got platforming. Combine them all together and you end up with a masterful combination that takes you on a journey of punching, zapping, and eventually even kicking things into people in order to infiltrate and discover "Who dun it?"

Sound: For the game and the setting, the music is so appropriate. It just keeps you in the mood to keep going even when you've failed a few times. The few sound effect assets aside from the music are simple, to the point, and not bothersome.

Graphics: This game as very simple graphics, but they do exactly what the dev intended. Though they aren't complex, they do exactly what they need to in order to keep the game going. You can tell the dev put some work into the various levels.

Controls: Very simple, responsive, and intuitive. Except for one small bug, discussed below.

Gameplay: I had no real issues though I thought I did till I discovered the reason I was frustrated. When you first start crosslinking, a popup at the bottom of the screen tells you how it works. Click and drag to connect two things, and click on something to remove the connection. Somehow I made it through half the game before it decided to finally put the information on my screen when I was completing a mission. Prior to that, I was having issues disconnecting things, sometimes they would, sometimes they wouldn't. Perhaps it's my fault for not figuring it out on my own, yet personally, I think that's a devs job. But I wouldn't know how to report this anyways.... Either way - Now you know in case you run into the same issue. Click and drag to connect.... Click and release to disconnect. Now go punch people in the face... No really. Do it.

Overall: 9/10 - This game has great replay value at least a few times to discover the various arcs. I haven't completed them all myself, but even on your first playthrough you can tell that this will be an option later. Sadly the game has been bundled, but even so, the game is worth it. Personally, I'd probably try to get a coupon, but it's still not a bad way to spend $10, but better if it was six or seven instead. Definitely will go kicking more things later. And Punching. Lots more Punching. Punching is love... Punching is life. Eat, Pray, Punch.

Honestly one of the most unique puzzle games I have played in years. It\'s the only game I\'ve seen to truly blend a well-designed hacking mechanic with a top-notch stealth system. The music is jazzy and adds to the noire feel of the game. The level editor is great with loads of community levels to test your skills on. The only problem with the game is that it ended too quickly.

I highly recommend it.
9/10 Better than Watch Dogs

Short but incredible game.
Noir style story, great humor, beautiful graphics, fun puzzles.
Not a huge fan of having to restart the whole game to get all achievements but if you're not obsessed with achievement hunting that shouldn't bother you.
Even better it comes with a level editor offering a nice way of extending its playability.

It is quite a short game for $10 but if it's on sale GET IT.

Accidentally electrocute yourself while having too much fun with crosslink: check.
Whack a guy with a door: check.
Get whacked by a door: check.
