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?
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?

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.
