Back in 1990 the new Stealth fighter was the most sophisticated aircraft in aviation history. Invisible to radars, able to fly low and fast, and equipped with state of the art weaponry and avionics, it's was the pride of the US Air force. Unfortunately for the Americans, Stealth is stolen. Operation Stealth takes you into the quest of searching for the stolen tech, in an adventure game with good graphics and a great storyline. The game was released by Delphine Software for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST/E and DOS.

Operation StealthSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The CIA calls in their top undercover agent John Glames to hunt for the missing high-tech combat aircraft. Using his skills, ingenuity and an array of gadgets, John sets off to the exotic South American state of Santa Paragua, where the ruling Military Dictator (at the top of CIA's suspects list), in search for the stealth fighter. He is in a hurry though as the KGB is already informed about the incident and their agents are hot on its trails.
Operation Stealth includes all the addiction an interactive adventure offers and it's 100% mouse-driven, making it highly playable. You move Glames around exotic locations, pick up, examine, and use objects and in general interact with the scenery and any characters you meet, all with just a click.
The better you get, the harder are the puzzles to solve. Places may seem normal and empty of any information but you must examine everything and you may discover the strangest of things in the strangest of places! Glames must solve many puzzles as he starts to unravel the story -breaking into safes and blowing things up, for instance, but there are also less obvious things that must be done in order to complete your mission (i.e. by buying a carnation from a florist or exchanging money at the bank and many seemingly trivial things that are actually of vital importance). The game offers a few action sequences as well.
Operation Stealth has a totally engrossing story and once you start playing, it is doubtful that you will stop until you complete it. A brilliant game from Delphine!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics on the Amiga are impressive although the use of only 32 colors on-screen (I would expect at least running in EHB with 64 colors). Everything is well presented and the exotic scenery gives the game the feel of a James Bond story. The characters' animations is done well and the overall playability of the game makes for an engrossing and addictive experience. The lengthy intro sequence gives the game a movie-style opening and sets the standards for what will follow. Operation Stealth is a beautiful interactive adventure with some neat touches of animation such as the greasy looking airport officials and the way in which the hero purposefully strides from one scene to another.
The sound is nothing incredible, with pretty basic sampled sound effects and a few short tunes covering certain scenes, although the title music is quite groovy. A quite impressive detail with a cracked Amiga version is that the game can be played having the text-to-speech synthesis enabled, but -beware- there's also a bug here and if the player attempts to quickly click the mouse button to skip the speech, the game might freeze and will then have to be rebooted).
