Imagine a "serious" stealth-based game like Splinter Cell blended with Super Meat Boy and you’ll have an idea of what you’re in for with Stealth Bastard Deluxe, which you can stream on SHIELD with the new GeForce NOW game-streaming service.
This mixture, and the title, may sound whacky. However, if you are intrigued by stealth-based games but turned off by the inherently slow pace most require, you really need to give Stealth Bastard Deluxe a good long look.
Stealth Bastard Deluxe: Stealth with a Twist!
This Indie game challenges you to "sneak" your way through a deadly factory composed mostly of dimly lit environments filled with deadly traps and obstacles. The trick is you must do so at speeds normally reserved for action or platform games. You will die in all sorts of imaginative, and humorous, ways and need to rethink your path to success.
And there's usually more than one path you can use to beat each of the game's 80 levels, which are spread across eight worlds—each increasing in complexity, and difficulty. A generous checkpoint save system minimizes frustration, and scores of hidden secrets add to the replay value.
More Levels, More Fun
The Deluxe version includes the Teleporter Chambers downloadable content pack, which adds another 20 joyfully twisted levels to the 80 that are included in the base game. These new levels will require you to master the pack’s new toy, teleporters, to warp past even more sophisticated traps and enemies.
Give it a try and you just may find yourself hooked—there's a reason Stealth Bastard Deluxe is so well liked on Steam, earning an 89% average user rating.
