4 mobile stealth games that are just as good as Dishonored 2

By , on November 17, 2016

It’s a pretty sneaky week on consoles, what with Dishonored 2 and Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection stealthily swooping their way onto those big black boxes we all have stuck under out TVs.

But it’s not just consoles that do stealth gaming well. Oh me oh my no. There’s plenty to choose from on mobile as well. If only someone was content savvy enough to create a list of them…

Oh. Wait. I am. So here’s a list of some of the best stealth games that money can buy on mobile. You might agree. You might disagree. You might not care. Whichever path you choose though, make sure you’re loud and vociferous about it in the comments.

Okay so it might not be as good as it could have been, but Republique adds an interesting twist on things. Rather than controlling main character Faith, you’re controlling a disembodied someone who tells Faith what to do.

If you stop and think about it that’s pretty darn meta. Anyway, you spend most of the time looking through CCTV cameras, electrocuting guards, and working your way through a dystopian future that may not be all that it seems.

Beat Sneak Bandit

This one has sneak in its name. And it’s from Simogo. There really wasn’t any way that this wasn’t going to end up on this list. It also has an antagonist called Duke Clockface. Come on people. Duke Clockface.

Anyway, this one is a mix of rhythm action, a puzzler, and a stealth game. And it’s got a beautiful cartoon art style as well. Basically it’s great, and if you haven’t played it yet then you definitely should.

CounterSpy is a game of espionage and super stylish graphics. It’s like what would happen if the cubists had created James Bond. Well, maybe it’s nothing like that, but that does sound pretty cool too.

Sneak through a variety of bases taking out guards, stealing secrets, and generally being super cool and spy-like. Sounds like a good way to spend a few hours if you ask me. Which you didn’t.

Ooooooh a proper leftfield choice. Framed is sort of a stealth game because you’re trying to get past a bunch of guards. Except rather than pushing buttons you’re arranging and rearranging the panels of a comic.

It’s smart, it tells a better story than most games without using any words, and it’s got an ace soundtrack. You might not stab people in the throat with a special hidden dagger, but sometimes life is about more than that. Jeez.
