Gunpoint is a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people. You play a freelance spy who takes jobs from his clients to break into high security buildings and steal sensitive data.
To get past security, you'll need to make creative use of your main gadget: the Crosslink. It lets you see how all the security devices in a level are wired up, and then you can just click and drag with the mouse to wire them differently. So you can connect a lightswitch to a trapdoor, then flick it when a guard walks across to make him fall through.Key Features Rewire levels to work however you want

Gunpoint reviews and comments

Short but with tons of replayability
Translated by

A short indie stealth game with multiple Ways to Target. On Gameplay: As Detective Richard Conway, you have to navigate several predefined levels where you usually have multiple Paths to the Goal. With a "Skillbaum" you can train yourself differently and thus enjoy the Game even more. Unfortunately, the Storyline is relatively short and most People have already played through it in 3Hrs, but when you play again you have the Chance to make other Decisions. The Game Lacks nothing from the Cabling Of building lines and stealth action. For Graphic art: A 2D pixel game with a beautiful Design. The Colors are super chosen and the Pixel Type itself is also pointed. To the Sound: The Game doesn't really have a lot of Sound, but what's there has been very well. From falling Rain to Punches and Shots, the Sounds are very good. Verdict: A Game worth its £7. While it's short, the different Decision-making Options in the Dialogues in the Game give a super replay value. Funny Humour, beautiful graphics/beautiful Sound are really successful in the Game as well as a lot of Attention to Detail. Highly recommended.

Review of Gunpoint Gunpoint Is many things. A Stealth Game. A Shooter. A Puzzle game. A fun Game. A touching Game. Gunpoint's Story may not really last long, nor is it really complex, but somehow it also makes up for its Appeal. She's funny and can really make the Player laugh really often. Once you have a boring Day, you can quietly throw at Gunpoint again and at the Soundtrack you can shoot your Way through the Security as a "Freelancer Spy," or just sneak. It is even almost possible to complete any Mission without an enemy dead on the Account. You can find your own Style of Play. Even for People who want to chase High Scores and go to their Limit is also served with Gunpoint. Let's Just Get to the Pro-contra list for the fast guys among us: Pro: + wonderful Soundtrack + low Price, even at the Normal Price + nice, funny Story, which you can maybe have 4-7 Hours through when You play Through for the first time. On my second Run, the Result looked much shorter. + Dialogues are funny written + Pixelart is nice to look at, but not without Pitfalls (see Contra) + Steamwork Shopmaps are available and easy To obtain + Level editor and the Ability to upload your own Levels in the Steam Workshop + many different Skills Contra:- The Graphic Style is very detailed, but very small. Everything is so tiny that I sometimes had to sit very close to the Screen to take a closer look at various Items. I think at least the Option That you could stop the Camera removal yourself would have been very welcomed. Prontra: +-What bothered me personally was the Fact that you get the cool Skills quite late in the Game. The Doors to enter is really very strong, but fun as usual. Fortunately, it is possible to play all Missions again and use the Already preserved skills there. +-At the Beginning of each Mission during the "Briefing," there is always an optional Goal below the Contractor. In my Opinion, this Comment has not been marked very well by the Client, only in the second Run of The Game, which, by the way, has only been one and a Half hours, I noticed this Comment. At that time I bought Gunpoint for only €1.75 and am completely satisfied! If you should watch this Game in the Sale: To strike as long as it goes! I thank you for Reading and wish you a lot of Fun playing! ;-) http://store.steampowered.com/app/206190
