It’s a unique auto generated game. Missons tend to be often very similar but there is always different glitches. A unique touch I saw was each auto generated game has it’s own little backstory for why your playing the “game” like every video game. The only glitch I see is with the flying mission which is if you try to barrell roll it doesnt work then u cant shoot and in shooting as planes sometimes if u die u never respawn/get the restart u should. Through the ramble I would say it’s a good time killer if you just want good casual fun to kill stress tho some of the hard mode glitches uggh lol I’d wait for a discount but like $15 vs th e current $20

I really wanted to like and recommend this game, but I cannot.

On the surface, the idea sounds great. Mix and match pieces of different retro games/genres and play through whatever wackiness gets created.

In reality, the game overall fails to deliver. Individual mashes take at most 10 minutes to play through, but rarely did I ever spend that much time in any one “game”. Instead, some are so easy (even on a hard setting) that you’re in and out in a matter of 30 seconds or less. The game description even calls out that some mash ups easy to win, some will be impossible. That’s acceptable given the premise.

Stealth Bastard Deluxe

Stealth Bastard Deluxe

Stealth Bastard Deluxe was one of the early games out of the Greenlight gate - prior to it becoming an open door three miles wide - and it shows how decent some of those first Greenlight games were. This was made in GameMaker Studio, but you can scarcely tell as the inventiveness on display here is outstanding, both in terms of art assets used and the gameplay itself. On the face of it, it’s just another 2D puzzle-platformer in a market awash with titles from that genre, but this one has something a little different. The aesthetic is dark and brooding with a sharp sense of humour, suiting the setting well…and the soundtrack is similarly appropriate. But the gameplay is, as ever, the meat and potatoes.

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys spending weeks on end figuring out then practicing how to complete Rubik’s Cube in 40 seconds, then SBD would be right up your street. But for anyone else, it would be very difficult to have a satisfying experience of SBD beyond say, Round 3, and I’d recommend not bothering with it.


Stealth Bastard Deluxe (SBD) is not a stealth game … stealth is just one minor aspect of a multi-faceted game, and the only real purpose of stealth in this case is to avoid being zapped, and consequently having to restart from the last checkpoint.

Gunpoint is a sidescrolling stealth platformer with smooth jazz, guns and cool hats.

I’ve never been a gigantic fan of platformers, but this game is a big, big exception in my library, and I felt I needed to address this by updating my review in 2020. I’m going to reinforce this by saying that I have MANY more hours than steam says, and it provided me with endless entertainment on a couple of bus rides half way across the country, and that says something!

Gunpoint is unique in that it’s stealthy gameplay extends much further than ‘sneak around, shoot guy’ with some pretty complicated puzzles made by the in-game wiretapping feature “Crosslink”, which leaves every level open ended, akin to something like Metal Gear Solid V in a completely new medium.

-Quick Review-

Gunpoint is an indie puzzle game with loose ties to “stealth” and “technology”, Gunpoint was developed by Suspicious Developments and released 2013.

-Detailed breakdown review-

Story: The story is all in written format, somedays I feel like reading all that is writen in a video game, other times I see a chunk of text and think “I don’t really care” and skip right into the mission.

Gunpoint lets you skip dialogue and jump right into the puzzle solving action if you feel so inclined, however the story is quite well written. You’re a detective and have multiple choices for interaction with your clients. (Naturally I was as condescending and insulting as possible – the reactions were very much worth it!)

Great mix of roguelike and squad based strategy. Unique setting and mechanics for a zombie game. Love the art style and the music is very enjoyable and gives a nice tone. Very polished with no crashes or issues so far. Has that addictive “one more turn/mission”. Glad I found this hidden gem.

recently got this game on sale, got completely hooked within the first three missions

the style, dialogue, combat, and crafting system are all top notch, 10/10

some of the things that hold the game back in my eyes is the movement, often times passing through another person (or vice versa) can mess up my placement, but to be fair thats just a learning curve

the combat enforces high mobility because of the healing combat, and i think thats really interesting. It makes positioning, resource management, exploration, and map awareness very important. Also requires a little bit of tracking which “patients” you have already treated, etc

Aborigenus is a short platformer about a warring tribe that has invaded your own sky tribe, taken people away, and you leave in pursuit of the warriors that left, overcoming obstacles and challenges on your way to find them. Your girlfriend is missing as well, and your main goal has been to set off in search of rescuing her, and trying to catch up with the rest of your own tribesman along the way.

This game doesn’t have nearly enough levels. It was over before I even figured out how to use all the features. I only discovered there was more than one magic skill after I was done by looking at the pictures and reviews here. And you only get to ride one single chicken. :-(


After accidentally beating the game with just the spear, level 1 crow shot, and level 1 strength, I decided to play again and figure out the skills system. That’s the closest thing to making the game long enough to be satisfying. Anyway, it’s way easier to defeat the boss with some magic blasts than just using the spear. And if you really want to gain all the skills, it’s possible to grind next to a checkpoint, then kill yourself and repeat, because the enemies respawn when the checkpoint restores you.

This game is something special. I knew it was going to be a relatively short game, but I was stunned by how fast time flew when I actually played. I finished this entire game in roughly a day.

And I’d do it again, because its really fun.

I first heard of this game when I saw it on one of TeamFourStar’s streams. I believe Gaijin Goomba introduced it to the couch? Either way, I think he’ll be pleased with how authentic the mechanics in this game reflect a real Shinobi experience.

The inventory system is unique. You get no descriptions for what any of your items do outside of context clues from the names of the items. You might have to consult with google or a thesaurus for some of the item names, because they use words like ‘soporific’ to describe a smoke bomb for example. Which, btw, means ‘to induce sleep’. So its a sleepy smoke bomb. Awesome!

This game is GOOD but unpolished to Oblivion. (Finished it 3 times to get full skills. Game stopped leveling up with me after level 52 and I couldnt get the final skill to unlock the damn achievement since your damn leveling character asks you to get more levels. Yes you can’t open the skill tree without a shitty character, and mid way of the game you can’t level and have to finish first run to re-learn more skills in the next play-through (unnecessary BS))

Before we start, to let you be aware This game REQUIRES you to finish the Tutorial before even starting the game. I didn’t know and i finished first run without knowing half the moves. Why didn’t they put the tutorial at the beginning of the game you ask? They did but the full list of skills/moves requires you to enter the tutorial which is separated from your game. How do I know no one used the tutorial? Because there is a FU(king skill that is within the tutorial and gets you achievement (Flying Dragon & Tornado) and only 1.6% of players got it. So the problem is why did they put half baked tutorial in start of the game which logically makes you wonder why do I need a stand alone tutorial hence explaining why no one did it. Again, it is REQUIRED because dropping weapons was part of it and I never knew it even entering the damn controls to check it and found nothing until I finished the first run and then found it out.
