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?

One of the few early success stories of Greenlight before it turned into the garbage pile it is today.

Frustratingly challenging game. Compare it to Super Meat Boy if you want - in there you at least know most of the time what you are trying to do and pure skill is what is required. This game has more of an trial an error and figuring out element that especially in Levels 2 and 3 start to be the name of the game. But the skill element is there too in some levels and it can get very frustrating as you spend a lot of time getting over a specific obstacle only to get stuck completely just before the exit. But as always with games like this the solution is usually simple so you can only point the finger at your self when you get stuck.

Nevertheless there is plenty to do. Achievements. Community levels (once you sift trough the garbage) contains even more stuff to play. Quite inventive and deadly levels too.

In one sentence: An extremely addictive platformer with tight controls (played with my trusty Xbox controller) that not only turned out to be a massive times time sink for me as it's one of the few games where I'm actually motivated to go for perfect scores on every level, but also works equally well on all supported platforms. Much recommended.

(Also, I just noticed that this is the 666th review, so there you go.)

Awesome game. Great level design. The music is pretty nice, though it seems perhaps not enough of it. My girlfriend enjoys it. Has a level creator, not sure how to go about making a level though. All 2 times I've tried to build a level, my game crashed half way through. The DLC I don't really care for, but it was nice to have more levels. Best side scroller I've played for a while.
