The goal is to infiltrate the neighbor’s house undetected. Decoys and other distractions are helpful in turning the attention away from us. The primary element of gameplay is the advanced artificial intelligence that lets the neighbor remember the player’s actions and thus foresee his future ones. The paths that we take most frequently are quickly armed with numerous traps and alarms so the game requires creativity and flexibility to be won.

Each of the enemies has his own fighting style, which needs to be countered in order for us to win.
