What is it

Sneak is an app from Made in Me that can be used by one or more players. You choose your bait to entice out a range of monsters to come and have a snack. The aim of the game is to take a picture of the monster having it’s snack. But beware the monster can see movement and hear sounds and is easily spooked. If spooked the monster runs flies or floats away and you have to start again. The pictures of the caught monsters show a snap of the catcher doing the catching on the reverse. There are three levels, easy, medium and hard, and the difficulty levels really do match the name.

What our experts think

We thought this was a great concept, Grandmothers Footsteps for the tech generation. We observed children learning from their mistakes, working out what caused the monster to flee and planning how to avoid that again. It is an app that works as well for one player as for several. We saw children challenging themselves with harder levels or helping younger ones to succeed. Teamwork came in to play as children tried working together approaching from several angles to achieve their goal. The children really enjoyed the voice that encourages you and have many funny comments that made the children laugh. We observed many celebrations when a monster was caught and they thoroughly enjoyed the reward of the pictures of themselves when they had caught a monster. Competitions for the funniest catching picture were seen to be popular. We liked that the game was physically engaging with a wide range of movement and space used.

It would be even better if...

We think this game would be even better if there were more monsters to catch that could be unlocked when 3 stars were achieved in catching.
