LONDON, December 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
A perfect family game for Christmas, Sneak is an app that challenges you to literally sneak up on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Made in Me, the BAFTA-nominated creative studio today releases Sneak, a unique and crazy new game for the whole family, now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
The aim of the game is to lure out a collection of shy beasties that live in your device. First you must select the bait, then run off and hide. If you're quiet, a little beastie will appear, at which point you have to sneak up on it. If you make the slightest sound the beastie will bolt. But if you can get close enough to tap the screen you'll successfully take a photograph of it. The ultimate goal is to photograph all five beasties that live in the app.
Shhh... don't make a sound
Creators Made in Me had the idea for Sneak when playing an old game with their young children called 'Grandmother's Footsteps'. Using the surprisingly sensitive microphone built into Apple's mobile devices, the beasties in the app are startled by the slightest noise. New bait and beasties are unlocked with each 'super sneak' performed by the player.
Not just for kids
If you think Sneak is just for kids you're wrong, as Made in Me co-Founder James Huggins explains,
"We've had as much fun with Sneak in the studio as we have at home with the kids. Initially we imagined it would appeal exclusively to young children but it quickly became apparent that this wasn't the case. I've seen groups of so-called adults reduced to tears of laughter thanks to this app."
Apple TV compatible
If you're looking for a wonderfully inventive and novel game to play with friends and family over the festive period then Sneak is just the ticket. What's more anyone with Apple TV can play Sneak using their TV taking the experience to a whole new level.
Special Launch Offer - 69p!
Sneak is priced at £1.99 and available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Download the Sneak app before 31.12.2012 and get it for 69p.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
