Stealth Bastard: Tactical Espionage Arsehole
Stealth Bastard looks like a cross between Super Meat Boy and whatever your favorite stealth game is. It's free but I am literally too lazy to try it out even though it is free so I am informing everyone here in the hopes that people will try it and report back on its quality. I'm actually not a massive platforming fan and I don't have the masochistic streak it takes to enjoy something like Super Meat Boy or VVVVVV so I might actually sit this out entirely. Still, I figure that plenty of people here will perhaps enjoy it.
I leave you, now, with a trailer.

Your Jedi mind tricks won't work on me, boy.

Love the name, and watched the trailer earlier. But I don't see any bastardry.

But yes, gameplay looks fantastic. Something like this always comes down to the tightness of the controls, which is something that's impossible to gather from a video.

Although I suppose you're kind of right in that I'm trying to get people to play it. The reason, though, is because I don't want to waste my time on it if it's not fun.
So I guess my mind tricks might not work on you after all.

Spent the last hour eventually the aforementioned meatboyness of it all started to grate, on the last level of the second chapter (helios on the high score table btw) but a well made puzzle platformer, nice to see convictions light as writing on the wall get an airing.
Mantling down off an edge only worked like 10% of the time, and the level where you need to crush the flying drone with the lift had zero sign posting that you had to do that.
An excellent game I never want to play again*, checkpoints could be more generous though but i can see this being developed further in the later levels, I just think when the leaping and sneaking around the rotating light source was misjudged.
*i really hate the meatboy,

I fully support and endorse this game for people who enjoy this sort of game.All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.

Bugger - genuine apologies. Although it's not an excuse, I am somewhat drunken this evening and am prone to talking shit.
Also when drunk.
Again - sorry. I hereby grant you free licence to troll the next five topics or comments I make on RPS.

As to the game in question: it's quite fun, looks great, and has peachy-keen mechanics. It's lovely that they're giving it away for free, as I have paid for games that were definitely inferior to this one.

It closes with an ad for Explodemon. They should've charged for this and given that away, having much more fun with this one.

Just downloaded this and gave it a whirl, it's strangely compelling and a blast to play.

Just finished it.
71 deaths on the last level alone.
