    Uno de los juegos que mejor representan el potencial del GameMaker. Muy interesante para aprender desarrollo de niveles en juegos de infiltración y plataformas. Vale la pena comprarlo en rebajas.

    The graphics are excellent, the controls are tight, but this really feel more like an infuriating puzzle game than anything else. If you love solving very hard puzzles and doing so very fast and flawlessly then this game is for you. If you are a meticulous stealther or dislike puzzle games move on.

    I wish the previews had conveyed more of the puzzle element. I'll research more
    thoroughly next time. Expand

    SBD is a clever puzzle game. It reminded me of Portal, but has a lot of stealth elements in it, too.

    The gameplay and level design was perfect. Always challenging and rewarding, but never too complex or too hard. A couple of the later levels have a frustrating difficulty. That's how it should be! The final boss was a little too easy, though...

    What's missing is character. A lot of
    indie games have beautiful artworks, an unusual setting or music so distinct that it would never make it into a AAA title. That's where indie games usually shine. But SBD is a little boring in that respect. The presentation seemed quite mediocre, music was terrible... But one thing in SDB's favor: I loved the ending. Not only funny but also very intelligent.

    Despite it could be better in the mentioned aspects, SBD was great fun to play. Recommended to anyone.

    Extremely interesting game. Comedic, tricky, thought provoking puzzles that will genuinely puzzle any Portal vet. Especially for the price it's offered at, its fantastic.

    Wow. Just wow. Sneaky puzzles and murderous traps, platform bouncing action, snarky humour, and a bucketload of brainbending levels. I can't really fault this on any level. If you want a brilliant and beautiful puzzle platformer, go by this now. Even if you don’t, buy it anyway.. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

    The concept of Stealth Bastard is ripe for a mind-bending puzzle adventure. Alas, instead of teasing our brains, Curve Studios made a tedious exercise for training finger strength.

    A fantastic package, and a genuinely unique take on the puzzle platformer. [March 2013, p.89]

    Do stealth games have to be so slow? Stealth Bastard Deluxe has an answer – no, they don’t! Well, you can argue whether it’s a real stealth game or rather a platformer but the important part is that it’s very addictive and well-balanced. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.49]
