Take on the role of a mythical Sasquatch to perform fun, stealthy tasks in this Apple Arcade title. You need to sneak around various human campsites as a Sasquatch and take part in various activities without humans catching on.

Steal clothing, which will allow you to dress as a human. Steal food from their coolers. Play games, fish, and dig for treasure. There are several activities in which you can take part in throughout the campground.

One of the more interesting activities is racing. You can acquire vehicles to race on the campground racetrack. You can even spend time upgrading these vehicles for even better performance.

If you've been looking for an 'Untitled Goose Game' kind of experience on Apple Arcade, Sneaky Sasquatch goes a long way to scratch that itch, even if it's not quite the same thing. It's definitely worth taking a look at if you want something a little stealthy.

In Operator 41, you take on the role of a spy trying to get vital intel back to headquarters. This highly stylized game takes its design cues from old 1960s spy shows and was designed by a 14-year-old developer.

In each level, you need to reach the phone, which is always located on the other end of the stage. The levels take multiple forms, like rooftops, parks, or multi-floor stages. Each one requires you to duck around cover to avoid being spotted as guards with flashlights patrol. Watch out for patrol patterns, time your movements right, and you'll be able to make it to the end.

If you're looking for a stealth game with an old-school spy feel, check out Operator 41. It's got style, interesting gameplay, and is definitely stealthy.

Don't get caught!

Stealth is a genre that isn't yet well-represented in Apple Arcade. These are the titles we've been playing so far, and they're pretty interesting. But there could be more, so we hope to see the list grow over time. Which ones are your favorites? Let us know in the comments!
