Game Freaks 365 (Jul 03, 2010)
The game has four game modes, although all that really changes between them is whether the game is one-player or two-player and also whether the hiding place locations are fixed or random. That is not really that much variety and does little to add much depth to a game that, in all reality, never had much depth to begin with. The game may be fun to play for a round or two every once in a great while, but it is hardly the type of game that is going to coerce people to spend chunks of time many hours long playing it over and over. On the plus side, this is one of the most common of the games that U.S. Games released for the Atari 2600, so it should be cheap and reasonably easy to find. As long as you do not pay too much for it and do not go in expecting a long-term engaging experience, you may find it to be an interesting diversion every now and then.

Sicher ist Sneack 'n' Peak nur für einen bestimmten Spielertyp interessant. Doch ob der Neuartigkeit des Spielgedankens, sollte man diese Cassette unbedingt mal im Original sehen!
Sneak 'N Peek is as about as mundane as a video game can get. If you really want to play hide and seek, round up a bunch of friends on a hot summer night and knock yourself out. If this is not an option, just forget about it and find something else to do with your time.
Do you have fond recollections of the childhood activity "Hide and Seek"? Vidtec's recreation of this game came across as a flawed, one-dimensional, shameful excuse for entertainment.

I admit I could have given Sneak ‘n Peek more of a chance, but – much like Mr. Do!’s Castle a few months back – I could only take so much of this game. The game does have a handsome outside scene and some catchy music, but you can only polish a turd so much. I don’t think I’m being particularly controversial in calling Sneak ‘n Peek one of the worst Atari 2600 games of all time.
