Sneaky Sneaky is a stealth-based adventure game. There isn't a tutorial, but the game provides lots of pop-up hints and tips along the way. And instead of constraining players, this encourages them to experiment with tools and items to figure out new, creative ways of solving each map's puzzles. Sometimes, the puzzle solving involves getting into combat -- but, as a thief, you're much safer performing sneak attacks that instantly kill opponents. Direct attacks, by contrast, result in turn-based struggles with enemies that are frequently stronger and much harder to kill.

Although you may choose to kill enemies, it isn't the sole goal of the game; in fact, the game focuses much more on exploration and puzzle solving than combat and rewards you more for coming up with creative ways to clear maps without engaging in battle. That gives players a reason to replay stages and attempt to beat their scores with new strategies. Overall, Sneaky Sneaky provides a great brainteasing challenge to players young and old by forcing them to think and adapt to their environment to succeed. If you can overlook the fact that the character is a thief who sometimes backstabs his way to success, you have a game that virtually the whole family can enjoy.
