Sneak King is a comedic third-person stealth-action advergame developed by Blitz Games and published by King Games for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox exclusively in North American Burger King restaurants between November 19, 2006 and December 24, 2006.
In Sneak King, players assume the role of The Burger King as he sneaks around various locales, attempting to surprise the hungry inhabitants with various Burger King meals and his signature flourish.
The game was sold alongside two other games, Big Bumpin' and Pocketbike Racer, for $4.00 each with the purchase of any value meal. All three games are unique in that versions for both Xbox platforms were included on the game's disc, with the Xbox version resulting in lower graphical quality. The Xbox 360 version includes achievements worth 200 points (similar to Xbox Live Arcade titles at the time).
Stealth is the primary focus of the game. In order to feed the various construction workers and citizens that inhabit Sneak King's world, players must sneak up on them. Each character that players are able to feed has a blue shadow that appears around their vicinity; if the player happens to tip-toe into it, the character will be alerted. While avoiding the blue shadow, players must get close enough to the characters to surprise them. Once they are surprised, players then can attempt to perform a flourish maneuver by hitting 'A' at the appropriate time. There are three levels of flourish, one being the worst and three being the best; the better the flourish, the more points that are awarded. Another way to obtain more points is by racking up chain surprises. To do this, one must simply surprise multiple targets without getting spotted. Surprising characters from a hiding spot, such as a dumpster or a bush, will award bonus points as well.
