Stealth Bastard Deluxe keeps the essence of Stealth Bastard – which has been described as a cross between Metal Gear Solid and Super Meat Boy – but builds upon it in almost every way.
Players must journey to the exit of each level by employing a mix of platforming, puzzle solving, hacking and stealth. Vicious robot drones are on constant patrol, poised to shoot on-sight. Security cameras perform constant sweeps, ready to execute anyone who falls within their field of vision. And fiendish traps lurk in every shadow, eager to lure careless agents into their clutches.
One false move and – zzzzk!, frrrrap! or gnnnnnnnnr! And sometimes spppppplrrrt!
The main game now boasts a brilliant new narrative which reveals the origin of the character, and why he’s trying to escape such a bastard-tough facility. With 80 levels spread across eight worlds, there’s even more hard-as-nails challenge – featuring all-new equipment, and lots and lots of new ways to die.
Stealth Bastard Deluxe will also come complete with an intuitive level editor, allowing players to become the titular bastard themselves. Levels can be shared and ranked by the Stealth Bastard community, with a comprehensive online leaderboard tracking and ranking progress – enabling players to boast when they are better bastards than their friends.
