  • Summary: Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark is a fast-paced stealth platformer featuring brutal hazards, ruthless enemies, fiendish puzzles and red pixels galore. Jump, sneak, and be chunked through 80 levels. Will you make it out alive? Armed with only your wits and a pair of top-of-the-line 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 armor, 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! And once you've defeated these deadly chambers (or they've defeated you), create your own fiendish death-rooms in Stealth Inc's fully-featured level editor. This game supports Cross Buy and entitles you to both the PS3 and Vita version! Collapse

    Its stealth and puzzle mechanics are first rate, but its foreboding look and feel are what really set it apart. This is not one you want to miss.

    A great mix of platforming and puzzles, with loads of contents and an attractive design.

    Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark follows an individual searching for freedom, and delivers an unnerving 2D puzzle-platforming adventure.
  4. Stealth Inc’s mechanically fascinating, and holds you in just the right level of contempt as a player to keep you bashing your head against its heavily guarded walls. Now go forth, and break my heart on those leaderboards, you nimble-thumbed dream-stompers.

    Stealth Bastard born anew on PlayStation Vita offers a challenge that is both captivating and frustrating.

    A clever mix of puzzle, stealth, and action that manages to avoid most frustrations thanks to a constant stream of new ideas and a knowing sense of humour.

    Xcelent game with fast action, and levels that make your brains really work out to pass the chambers, is like a 2d action splinter cel, fascinating, fully recommendable and addictive Expand

    A challenging and incredibly enjoyable 2D puzzle-platformer with some great stealth mechanics. With excellent level-design, a steady difficulty curve, plenty of extras, and new challenges around every corner, it's hard to find much fault with the game. It's definitely hard, but rarely manages to over frustrate thanks to it's top-notch design.

    While the game often requires quick thinking, fast reflexes, patience, and pattern memorization, the difficulty doesn't mean it's inaccessible to those who haven't given the genre much attention. In fact I can see anyone picking it up and having a good time, but that being said only the elite are going to be able to take a spot on the leaderboards. In order to become one of those people is going to require quite a bit of practice.

    Still, the game is incredibly rewarding even to those like myself who have to suffer through countless deaths before seeing the end of a level. While it does have the potential to frustrate, the fresh theme and overall excellently designed gameplay are enough to keep the game fun throughout. MY total score for the game is a 9.1/10=Amazing.

    It's a 2-D platformer where you navigate platforms in 2-D—unfortunately there's not much else to say about it. Naturally it does have its idiosyncrasies (such as the level making snarky comments to you when you die) but I get the feeling that the quirkiness of the presentation only serves to deflect from the fact that it's pretty average.
