OverviewOverview

Sneaky Sasquatch is an adventure game where you sneak around in campsites and try to find food from coolers and picnic baskets without getting caught. There's a large variety of things to do. For example you can race, play golf, ski, find buried treasure, rent an apartment, get a drivers licence and more.

There are also daily challenges and high score leaderboards for all the activities you complete. As well as available upgrades for your house and race-car. You can customise your disguises and plan out strategies to distract people as you sneak past them.

The game has a day-night cycle and sometimes it pays to go on night raids, although you do need to sleep as well. To earn money you also need to get a job as the game develops. "It's sort of Grand Theft Auto meets Untitled Goose Game," said Chris O'Shea. It's ideal for a family, not only because you can each have your own save slot and there is a variety of activities, but because the developer continues to add content regularly to expand and improve the experience.

If you're seen, you'll have to quickly run and hide from the person who saw you and wait for them to forget about you. This means that sometimes, you'll have to act quickly and with very very little notice. While the main game isn't particularly difficult, some of the events, such as pro skiing, offer a far greater challenge.

As most of the controls and aims are conveyed through simple diagrams and symbols, there is very little text in the game. What there is is quite large and always contrasts well with the backdrop, which is normally a text box or a speech bubble.

As the map is 2D, you only ever have to go left or right (and occasionally up and down a short distance), making navigation a simple task. There are paths that lead to each new area, and these are large and hard to miss. The game is generally bright and different elements contrast well.
