Earlier this afternoon, Jared and I spent some time with 21 Days [$0.99]. It's a stealth game that caught our eye initially because it looked vaguely like an old-school Metal Gear Solid title. In 21 Days, you play as a convict on a mission to escape his prison just before he's transferred to maximum security. Levels are broken out across days, each introduced by bits of story.

Presented in an over-the-top perspective, the stealth isn't exactly complex. Your main threats are guards and cameras, both of which have very specific movement patterns that can be exploited. A simple click and drag interface, similar to the one RTSes use, keeps character navigation breezy.

We're still pretty early in 21 Days, but here's a video. It seems like it's a rock-solid stealth game, which is pretty hard to find on any platform.

    You know you're watching too much walking dead when you see a prison and instantly think about the show.

    This looks good but with Jet Grind Radio and Baldurs Gate nearly in my grasp I'll have to come back to this one own the road

      I don't wanna be this guy but...Jet SET Radio*. Fantastic game btw.

        The American version of Jet Set Radio was originally called Jet Grind Radio for legal reasons when it was released in the states on Dreamcast. I personally prefer the latter.

    Moles don't really have eyes in the traditional sense of the word nor can they really see. They don't have ears either. Again in the traditional sense of the term.

    BattleFriends !!! Do you guys imagine playing this in a songpop-like style (turn based). For me - must have!

    Sharp makes better TVs than Samsung, IMO.

    (And as a bonus, you don't end up with something that says Samsung on it.)

    "And old school metal gear solid"

    You mean like Metal Gear? The originals for NES?

      Well, technically the original was on the MSX :) But the NES version is one of my favorite games of all time. I beat it as a kid, one of my more cherished gaming accomplishments.

      That is actually the version we were referring to in the video, I think Brad just misspoke calling it Metal Gear Solid, though he is kinda a youngster.
