Stealth Inc. / Stealth Bastard Deluxe Review

Stealth Inc. / Stealth Bastard Deluxe Review
It's Summer which means its time to "play". Sony has reintroduced it's Summer sell called Play 2013. 
The first game to kick off the sell is Stealth Incorporated. This is a remastered, repolished version of the game, Stealth Bastard. 
It's a puzzle game that has you hiding in the shadows from cameras, robots, and turrets. The objective of the game is exclusively to make it out of the door. The original game Stealth Bastard was released in November 2012, a short 8 months later and a polished better looking, and better playing version of the same game comes out. I'm not sure if I like this idea as a trend, or loath this idea as a trend. 
Either way, what's done is done. Along with a change in the look, they also chose to change the name. Honestly I like Stealth Incorporated better for whatever reason. Stealth Bastard just sounds intrusive.
So apparently you're a clone that is being put through all of these test. The shadows are your friend, as you navigate your way around these life or death puzzles. 
Your goggles indicate how likely you are to be seen, Green means you're invisible, orange means your partially visible and may get spotted, finally red means you're going to get shot if anything sees you, out in the open like that.
After completing a level your clone can gains special abilities for that level. Things like camouflage or decoys, to help you complete the level in a faster amount of time, giving you a better score, and a better grade overall.
Stealth Inc. is also a cross play game. When you download it you get not only a PlayStation version of the game but you also get a PlayStation Vita version of the game that both sync with one another.
If you enjoy mind twisting puzzle games, this might be just for you. If you didn't play it when it originally came out. 
I enjoyed the dark moody atmosphere and repeatedly dying, while navigating my way through each level which is why Stealth Inc. is getting a 8 out of 10
