About This Game

Stealth games are awesome. Hiding from The Man, skulking in shadows, the thrill of infiltration. But why do they have to be so... slow?


That was the question that spawned Stealth Bastard, the fast-paced, nail-biting antidote to tippy-toed sneaking simulators that the world had so desperately been craving. Now, building on the ideas sketched out in this unholy marriage of deft, wall-hugging stealthiness and insane break-neck platforming, we’re proud to bring you the bigger, better, shinier Stealth Bastard Deluxe.


Armed with only your wits and a pair of top of the range Stealthing Goggles, it’s your job to sneak your way through a deadly facility that’s determined to extinguish your fragile little life. With no weapons and no armour, being seen means instant death. Stay out of the light to avoid the attention of deadly security robots! Leap like a lusty salmon to avoid those zap-happy lasers! Think fast as the walls close in around you! Only the fastest and sneakiest will make it to the exit without being mangled by the facility’s security systems. Will you be among them?

Key Features

  • Campaign Mode: 80 levels spread across eight worlds, featuring tricky puzzles, platforming challenges and a wide range of sharp-eyed security bots who are entirely unsympathetic to your plight.
  • Dynamic Lighting: Stay in the shadows cast by Stealth Bastard Deluxe’s dynamic lighting system to escape the attention of enemies and security cameras.
  • Equipment: The Camo Suit, the Decoy, the Sonic Decoy, the Antilight and the Teleporters provide new ways of outfoxing enemies in every level.
  • Secrets: Find all the secrets hidden in the game to unlock new levels and equipment.
  • Leaderboards: Stealth Bastard Deluxe’s Global Leaderboard will determine once and for all who is best at games. Each level has individual leaderboards for playthroughs with and without equipment. You can also compare scores with your Steam friends using the Friends Leaderboard.
  • Level Editor: The level editor used to create Stealth Bastard Deluxe’s Campaign Mode is included with the game. Taunt friends and strangers alike with your hard-as-nails creations!
  • Online Level Repository: Levels created in the level editor can be uploaded to the online level repository, from where other people who own the game will download them automatically.
  • Steam Cloud Support: Pick up your save no matter where you are.
  • Achievements: An assortment of dastardly achievements, some obvious, some mind-bogglingly oblique. Will you get them all?

Overview: 2D Puzzle Stealth Platformer

The Good:

+ The game does a fantastic job of mixing puzzle elements with platforming elements with stealth elements. All of this comes together in a complete package designed to challenge you.

+80 levels across 8 sectors

+ Each Sector introduces a new gameplay mechanic that adds to the challenge and fun. As you progress through the levels these mechanics are put to more creative uses.

+ Each level contains a collectable, get all the collectables in a sector to unlock a new level.

+After completing a level you are graded based on three factors, time, deaths and number of times being spotted. S -Rank is the highest rank you can achieve. Achieving S Rank in all levels in a sector unlocks a new level. This provides plenty of replay ability to the game.

+ Different equipment to experiment with. Some equipment allows you become camouflaged, use a decoy, teleport etc. All of this is strictly optional, in fact to get an S-Rank you have to use no equipment, but it is nice they included these options for anybody who wants to try them out

+Level Editor to make your own levels and share.

+Lots of fan made levels that can easily extend your playtime

+ Game provides a cute story that fits nicely with the game

+Great music

+Surprisingly addicting.

The Bad:

-Some minor glitches,

- Getting S-Rank in certain levels requires some luck

- The game can get frustrating at times, especially if you are trying to unlock everything

Conclusion:
I really loved this game mainly because I knew so little about it when I started. Though the game is called Stealth ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, "stealth" is a bit different than what you normally expect as this game is also about speed and precision platforming. What makes this game so good is how they were able to combine all these different elements together and make a great game. If you are interested in any of these elements than I strongly recommend you check this game out.

I was expecting more stealth mechanics and gameplay when I started this. To my surprise it plays more like I wanna be the guy than a stealth game.

A series of fast paces action platforming puzzles that you plow through with the good ol trial and error. Its just not my cup of tea.

What I saw of the story was very minimalistic phrases on the walls. I would imagine it stays that way.

For a game with Stealth in the name I would have expected stronger emphasis on stealth....

Good gameplay, challenging levels that live up to the name, and a wonderful sense of black humour. Thoroughly enjoyed!

This game is right up my alley! I love stealth based games! Even though its more focused on puzzle rather than actual stealth. I like the idea of creating new levels far after the game is done... But what I dont like is that it doesn't tell me how to unlock more suits e.g. Stealth suit, Clone suit. I'm sorry to say I dont recommend this game. You will buy it... Then play it but after a couple hours you get bored of it, Delete it and regret buying it.

Excellent, with a small sag in the middle and then a very strong last two sections. Hard but fair. Sick story :)

Game is ok but not worth the price offered on Steam. "Trine" or "Toki Tori" is much better games in my opinion. Toki Tori is cheaper - 5 euro and is much better choice I think. (on hard levels Toki Tori is great - only first easy levels is boring - Toki Tori has stupid music but you can switch off music in options) Trine is not much more expensive (difference 1 euro) from Stealth ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Deluxe 8.99 euro (Trine 9.99 euro) and is better too.

If you want buy on sale :D

Well my only real gripes are that it doesn't feel like a stealth game, rather it just feels like your standard indie puzzle-platformer, and the AI of the NPCs (when they're essential) can bug out. It's not bad for what it already is but it's pretty terrible for what it claims to be.
