Little time has passed since the events of Police Quest, when Sonny climbed the ranks of the Lytton police department and became the key element in the arrest of Jesse Baines, the notorious Drug Lord. After the trial, Sonny’s application to the Homicide division was accepted and proposed to Marie, who had her prostitution charges dropped and started a new life away from the streets. Life was good… until Baines escaped, taking advantage of a low-security prison and an inexperienced correctional officer. Sonny is now in danger from a vengeful Baines and is saddled with his new chain-smoker partner Keith. Sonny goes to the field again to capture Baines, but things are about to get awfully personal…

Operation Stealth (1990)

Operation Stealth

Interplay Productions, Inc.

The game is controlled by the same pop-up command menu consisting of six verbs that was introduced in Delphine’s debut Future Wars. However, it’s been slightly improved and does now allow interaction with your inventory, like examining and combining items. You get to toy around with a whole load of typical special agent’s gadgets, beginning with a passport forgery kit and ending with explosive cigarettes. Apart from solving puzzles, you’ve got to make it through some arcade sequences: escape the labyrinth, dive with limited breath, dodge the evil guy’s minions. Although not as frequent as in Future Wars, pixel hunting and the occasional dead-end are still annoying “features” in The Stealth Affair.
