Level 22 lands on Windows Phone 8, a game about sneaking into work late

Better late than never. Games from iOS and Android keep rolling into the Windows Phone Store. This time, it’s Level 22. Metal Gear Solid fans are going to love this game. You play as Gary, who wakes up late after partying hard the night before. This isn’t the first time Gary’s been late for work, and he could be fired if he’s spotted arriving at his desk after everyone else yet again.

Watch the official trailer below.

Gary works on the 22nd floor. Help him work his way up without being spotted. Tapping on different areas of the offices moves Gary into those positions. Some objects can be interacted with. For example, you can push vending machines, enter vents, hide inside closets, or pick up certain items. You can drag around the screen to scout the area, but you can’t pinch to zoom

There are a few things Gary can do to avoid being spotted. Obviously, you want to be away from your co-workers’ line of vision. Fortunately, they move around and sometimes even fall asleep at their desks. Timing is important. Props can be used as well. Some missions let you hide inside a box and even move around with it. Of course, people will get suspicious if they see a box moving around by itself. You can also cover your face with a newspaper to avoid being identified. Security guards are smarter though and tend to get more suspicious if you get too close.

Sometimes, hiding and sneaking around aren’t enough. More daring actions are required. This game lets you booby-trap photocopiers, give laxatives to your co-workers, knock them out, poison them, or even expose them to harmful radiation.

Level 22 costs $1.99 from the Windows Phone Store. We’re having a lot of fun with it. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!

Thanks for the tip, Elloy K.!
