About the 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?

Quick Edit: there is some bullocks rule against the term for a child whose parents aren't married, so I will be editing my review accordingly

I have had Stealth Illegitimate Child for a long time now, and I am not entirely sure why I left it on the backburner. It has some humor, a nice art style, and solid gameplay. I barely paid anything for it, and that’s really a shame. With all this fuss over engines and production values, it’s a shame that very few developers actually work towards making a substantial game that is more flesh than flash.

Stealth Edmund from Shakespeare's King Lear is a mix of puzzle, platforming, and stealth (of course) that takes cues from greats like the Portal series. Though there are definite shades of Glad0s written on the walls, Stealth Fitzroy manages to carve out its own identity. This game relies more on hasty stealth rather than the slow sneaking that other games of the genre tend to have. However, despite how much speed is required and encouraged, it is all still just as calculated as any other stealth game: there all kinds of hazards, patrolling guards, and time sensitive obstacles that will kill your clone over and over again.

There is lots of replay in the form of unlocks and leaderboards. Meeting certain goals, finding helices, and so on determine the gear that you can unlock to replay a level. The gear changes gameplay a bit, and making a top score might be a reward in itself if you so with it.

It is interesting that I finished this game after The Swapper. Both deal with similar subject matter and share at least one gameplay aspect (puzzle platforming), but they seem to handle it in a different way. Whereas The Swapper focused on the self and what it is to be, Stealth Son of Henry I has its own message delivered in a less subtle way. The game, while humorous, is quite dark. The sparse narration, wall writing, and gameplay all have some heavy implications.

It was my mistake not to play this game sooner: it’s a delightful challenge with character at a great value.

*The DLC: I will leave the soundtrack up to the individual to decide, but The Teleporter Chambers are a must buy for fans: the freedom and strategy are raised along with the challenge.

This game is very challenging and creative! I enjoy the time figuring out solutions as well as the performance of retro arts. The combination of various logical mechanic setting and abilities of different characters delivers a high-IQ-testing gameplay. You could even design your own map to challenge other players or play others' creative work, some are very intriguing and fun. Also, it got a nice background music with sense of tension. Check it out if you like doing brainstorm; this game will greatly satisfy your demand.

[8/10]

TL;DR: Arcade, fast paced, quite difficult action/puzzle game with little stealth emphasis.

TL:
Gameplay: You probably won't get the stealth feeling you're looking for in this game, it's too fast paced and quite difficult, with emphasis on restarting levels until you get it right, rather than calculating a plan of action at first sight. You will repeat some levels so many times to unlock it fully, that it will become frustrating and stop being fun. After you restart a level a couple of times until you find the fastest course of action, you may become extremely volatile when you realise this game is not glitch/bug free and something won't just work on the 10th try (a switch may activate as you jump away from it, a robot may not move over a plain surface altough it should, etc.). Highscores are good and all but when each level is timed it will convey any other feeling but stealth.

Sound: The music is retro arcade style, which is not to say it's bad, it's just not something to keep you around for long. The sounds as well.

Visuals: The visuals are fine, it's like a pixelated film-grain, this won't bother you, and it's good for the type of game SBD actually is.

Story/Narrative/Context: Almost non-existing, and since it's displayed briefly on the walls as you pass by, you might miss a few while trying to move fast.

Conclusion: Don't get this game if you want a stealth game, but get it if you want a difficult platformer with fast paced action and some stealth nuances. The game is not bad, it's actually good for what it is, just don't be confused by the Stealth in the name since you'll regret paying for it. This ain't no Mark of the Ninja :P

If you watch the trailer you know that this is going to be a rage game, and thats kind of what it is,mostly but not really. The first thing that i'd like to point out is that its my favorite type of game, STEALTH, but its not really your standerd sneak up on a guy and kill him sort of stealth game its more of a sneak AROUND the enemy a get out sort of thing. The difficulty in this game is really tough but not unforgiving. the graphic style of the game acually suits it in a way. the level editor though i found to be really confusing , so i left it to the people who acually know what they're doing.All in all i'd give this game a 8/10
