(Yes, I know it's his arm, but I've shown this game to people and had them immediately start snickering, so it's not just me. The opening cutscene, when he's outside, makes it look especially like a "male endowment".)

Yeah I'd second that for sure. That "arm" might be the only funny part of the actual gameplay. In my post from earlier this year, I described it the same way: "The character models have a strange appendage coming out from their waistline area. Supposedly it's an arm, but it definitely looks like something else.. Makes you wonder what's really going on when Player 1 and Player 2 go behind the couch together..."

The eye tracks text differently on a computer screen vs. paper, so text that's optimized for print will always be awkward to read on a monitor. Writing documentation specifically for websites or email flyers is a unique skill set.

I love it when a thread gets a bit of life and you get opinions about a much loved game from your past. Plus sneak n peek it just sounds sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo awful.

Khan games did an nes remake of Sneak n' Peek. Not sure why! The new graphics don't have the same "charm" as the old ones if you know what I mean :lol:
