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.

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?
I got Stealth Bastard Deluxe in a bundle and was surprised with how good it is. The platforming was perfect which is important in a platformer and I liked the art style and music as well. There is some side stuff to collect in every level but sadly I don't see that as much replay value. The puzzles in this game were not that difficult as I had more trouble dealing with certain enemies than the puzzles themselves. I had fun with this but it only takes a few hours to complete and there isn't much in terms of story.
Neat little platformer where you're trying not to die in any traps. It's got a good amount of levels, and also features a level editor and the ability to share your levels. The level design is nice, and the controls feels tight. The resolution can't be changed in the options menu, but it has rebindable keys at least.
S.B.D. is a nice little 2D platformer with retro feel to it, which provides a good mixture of platforming, puzzle and stealth elements. With its 8-bit era inspired art style, fun and addicting gameplay, and 80 levels full of deadly hazards and a collectible item in each level, it will surely distract you for a while. Puzzles can sometimes be frustrating, which is kind of a good and a bad side, depends on your gaming preferences. If you're into old school, tough-as-nails platformers, that shouldn't present a problem. ;) There's also a level editor, which is a good way to extend longevity of a title, and a good feature to mess with after completing all of the missions. So, If you like retro style platformers don't miss this one. It can often be found in bundles, and on sales (e.g. I got my key for 1,40 € on GMG a few months back). There is also a sequel which came out in April 2015 called Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones, so you might want to check out that one as well.
So much fun while playing this game. Theoretically everything is simple. But not so long. Some missions will probably last few minutes for you to complete each one. Then you realize that you could do it in less than a minute. And then you are trying to beat your own record. Several times. But forget about it. Nice logical platformer (I was surprised that it was that good), graphics and music are also good. Just.... the best challenging game that I played as far as I remember .
Stealth Bastard creates tension for a platformer that I don't experience often. There are a lot of stealth games out there, and most stealth platformers give you enemies you also have to fight, or that odd weapon that will at least incapacitate that camera or those guards on the watch for you. This game offers none of that—the only respite being stealth itself. Hiding is your only option here, and that was such a great challenge. Ducking and diving past laser sensors and traps is so satisfying when you know there's nothing but your lightning fast reflexes there to get you through. The atmosphere was perfect, and I felt so engrossed in this that I couldn't stop paying attention to this game. It helps that the music wasn't bland at all, so that you didn't feel that there was this droning sound in the background. All in all, excellent game. Definitely worth it to play.
