This game provides the player with great puzzles (some of which are of a rather difficult level) The game itself forces the player the take into account stealth elements (otherwise it would not be called Stealth Bastard, right? ). Now here comes the hard part. You have to balance the stealth game play... and solve the puzzles together, at the same time. The controls are easy to use, that said, you may need help tinkering about the first few stages to get the hang of it... but it should not be too difficult. The graphics itself are okay.. for an indie game. But I got some bugs on certain levels with the graphics (it started flashing), so windows 7 users might want to take note...it may not run all the well that smoothly. 7/10

Scientists in video games love making death traps, don't they? Luckily for you they make them into fun puzzles in Stealth Bastard. Unlike the typical hop and bop sort of platforming, your goal is to sneak through each stage alive. How so? The shadows, careful timing, and many bloody restarts. Thankfully, despite the challenging puzzles, the game gets you back in the action very fast with each level having a few checkpoints to help you. In addition, you have an arsenal of gadgets you can earn to make stages even easier like decoys for the cameras and robots, and so on. Many will compare this to the other recent stealth platformer, Mark of the Ninja,and while two are wonderful indie games, Stealth Bastard focuses more on stealth puzzles, while Mark of the Ninja offers stealth and many ways to kill soldiers. That said, I highly recommend Stealth Bastard. With all thrilling death trap puzzles and extras to play for (extra stages and gadgets), this is an indie game well worth the price.

This is a great indie game. This is a great game period. The puzzles are varied as all get out and the art style is pretty cool. Yeah it has the indie moniker but this is just as addictive as any other stealth game out there. It will hook you and make you want to sneak past just one more lazer before you realize it's been longer than you anticipated. Drop a few bucks and enjoy the ride.

It's a nice puzzle- platformer that can give a few hours of fun. It's an indie so it doesn't cost a lot, and it is a good point for this game.. If you enjoy this type of games of course. It's very hard too, so another good point, because you will have to sneak throught many enemies, and obviously if you get caught you will die.

This game managed to impress me on multiple levels. I appreciated the stealth-platformer elements, while the atmosphere was on the level of some of the greatest stealth games out there. The controls are tight, and this game always leaves you wanting more. Stealth Bastard Deluxe is a must buy - especially when on sale.

This is a great game, with a high difficulty. And stealthy gameplay that I love! Also there are a lot of puzzles that can be pretty hard. If you liked Mark of the ninja, be sure to check this game out!
2D Stealth Done RightF4T4LV0iD | July 27, 2013 | See all F4T4LV0iD's reviews »
Stealth Bastard Deluxe offers some of the most fun 2D stealth puzzling yet to be offered. The only 2D game that uses stealth that I'd say would top this game is Mark of the Ninja, but that's like comparing apples and oranges, as Stealth Bastard Deluxe is more focused around the puzzle aspect and finding the exit while avoiding robotic sentries.
The premise is simple but effective. There is a door that you must open and escape. Sound easy? If only it were that easy. You typically need to find consoles which will unlock said door, and then you can make your escape. But what fun would that be without throwing puzzles in your path, and dangerous robotic sentries out to make your day a little more difficult?
I kept going back to this game time and time again and found it difficult to quit, I always felt like "just one more level". None of the puzzles are so painfully difficult that you'll throw your hands up with defeat and never play the game again, but you are presented with enough of a challenge to make you feel like you accomplish something meaningful each time you complete a level, and as the subtitle says, you feel like a total tactical espionage arsehole as you sneak through the shadows and avoid pesky security cameras.
I got more than my money's worth out of this game, and if you like fun platformers with a stealthy puzzle twist, I suggest picking up this excellent indie title.

Stealth Bastard is an interesting combination of hardcore 2D platformer and hardcore stealth. This isn't the kind of stealth game where you slowly crouch-walk through the whole level and snipe all the guards with a silenced tranquilizer sniper rifle. Instead of taking it slow, you have to observe your environment, plan your movements, and then leap into action like a ninja. As in Super Meat Boy, you will die often, only to instantly respawn anew. Succeeding in the later levels of the game requires foresight, skill, and perseverance.

Stealth Bastard Deluxe is a hardcore platformer where you have to sneak into a place and must get pasts lots of enemies and things like security cameras. The way this is similar to Super Meat Boy is how the game is extremely hard and frustrating but makes you determined to finish the level. And by the end of the level you are so proud of yourself that you move onto the next level. If you love platformers this is a must buy.

Stealth Bastard Deluxe is an amazing, little stealth games, full of puzzle of course. The game stars to be hard as soon as you press enter, and complete it will be a real challenge. If you loved Mark of the Ninja, give this a try too.

Steatlth Bastard was a new platform game from Curve Studios conceived primarily to be signed death. But the truth is that this contract may not necessarily be the victim, who just holding a pen. When the Bastard quick, skillful, uncompromising precision and foresight, can defeat death.
Speed is all but over. Curve of her gray-green arcades literally did speedrun. It is a discipline at progaming in which the player level or multiple repetitions of the game in record time can overcome obstacles and establish that either their own or straight world maximum.

It’s a game that drives you crazy. It can be compared to Super Meatboy (yes, it’s a hard but addictive platformer with instant restarts, and plenty of messy deaths ) The stealth game that isn’t about being slow. Stealth Bastard was actually a freeware game (on sale is the deluxe version), so you can try it out first.
