Stealth games on mobile can be a bit of a mixed bunch. On the one hand you’ve got the super-deep games that punish you for spending a second too long in the light, and then you’ve got the more casual experiences that pretty much let you scream your lungs out in a group of guards and get through unscathed.
Sneak Ops fits somewhere in the middle of those two poles. It strips back the stealth experience into a pretty interesting midcore shape, leaving the bare bones but keeping plenty of the tension.
It’s taut, but it’s also got the friendliness of an arcade score-chaser. Imagine a Nitrome take on creeping through a futuristic warehouse and you’re pretty close to what you get here.
The game is split into little sections of scurrying around. To move you just tap on a square on the slightly-gridded levels and your sneaky hero will scuttle there as quickly as their little legs allow.
