DESCRIPTION
Master the elements in this stealth game where everything burns. Use your elemental powers to start fires, freeze water, and move earth as you outsmart superstitious enemies in this mischievous 2D stealth game.
EXPERIENCE
You Sneaky Bastards made a 2D Pixel Stealth Puzzle Platformer where I burn down the environment, summon rideable water bubbles, carry dead bodies and soar through the air with chicken power and I couldn’t be more pleased.

You are the chosen one. Well…you or Ezra…but you are better than Ezra…the meteorite chooses a protector once a generation…this time…its you…too bad the Dutchess already burnt down the village and you have to learn on the job by rescuing the villagers and facing off with the Dutchess’ superstitious army…Burn Witch…Burn!

Objectives, Skill Points, Elemental Powers, Fire (Smoke), Water (Ice), Earth (Tentacles), Spirit, Meteor Shards and most of all STEALTH! Watch out for Soldiers, Archers and Bobcats!

Enemy emojis, I hear ya! I scared! You a ghost! I smell ya.
Art: Retro Pixel Art with a clearly defined environment and sprawling parallax backgrounds.
Animation: The animations make feel alive and occasionally make me laugh…in a good way.
Music/Effects: Totally appropriate. Can be a little overwhelming at times. But not too often.
V/O: Did we unlock that Kickstarter goal? Mostly mumbles and ha ha’s and screaming.
World Building: Serviceable. Revenge Adventure tropes.
Currency: Elements, Meteor Shards and Spirit allow you to upgrade your powers.
Gameplay/Loop: Stealth, Achievements and upgrades. Each Stage is playable with different goals in mind.
AI/NPCs: They follow the rules pretty well…unless they don’t…and that is fine because that is also entertaining.
Controls: I used a Xbox One controller. Pretty straight forward. Allows for some pretty good control.
Interface: Minimal in game HUD and Icons. Menu could use a reworking. Hard to navigate.
Replay/Endgame: I have already revisited stages to earn differnt outcomes. I didn’t make it to the endgame. Am I a Witch?
Score: 8 fiery deaths out of 10 stealthy bastards
