The game is set in the 1970’s and is full of goofy charm. With the camera set toa top-down view, players will need to navigate through each stage while cleaning up the crime scene and sneaking past police and sometimes bystanders. This can involve disposing of bodies, cleaning up blood, and making off with incriminating items left at the scene of the crime. Once all objectives are met you have to make your escape. Cops have a cone of sight and they will give chase if you’re spotted. Luckily there are hiding places scattered around the level that you can quickly jump into until the heat dies down. If you do get caught, however, you have to restart the entire level from the beginning.
So far, there are twelve levels available to play. They get progressively harder as you go on, requiring you to clean up larger amounts of blood or dispose of an even greater number of bodies. There is also a bit of randomization in the levels, such as hiding spots or bodies in different spots than the first time you played through, adding some challenge and replayability.
I really enjoyed this game. It’s interesting to see a quick-paced stealth game with a concept like this. Serial Cleaner also has a nice, dark sense of humor along with an interesting style of graphics going for it. The best way that I can think of to describe it is that the art is full of sharp angles, giving it more of a cartoonish vibe. Serial Cleaner is available now on Steam’s Early Access program for $9.99 USD.
