Looking for a fun platform puzzler with stylish tracks and challenging levels? Give Beat Sneak bandit a try.

What�s up everyone! Welcome to another episode of Tap that App, the show where we check out the hottest apps in the mobile space. My name is Eddie Cho and today we�re going to show you Beat Sneak Bandit, a game that blends rhythm, stealthy action, andsome clever puzzles. As you all know, time is money, so it�s no surprise that when the world�s clocks get stolen, all havoc breaks loose. It�s up to you asthe Bandit to break into the Duke�s mansion and reclaim time for all the people... Like Robin Hood but with clocks. The controls are pretty simple and straightforward: : Players must sneak and tiptoe around the mansion to the rhythm of the music. Therefore playing with speakers or headphones is absolutely recommended. Move the Bandit across each stage by tapping to thebeat. If you hit off-rhythm, you�ll cause the Bandit will stumble, halting him in his tracks and pretty much throwing off your groove inthe process. Though the mechanics might sound a bit mundane and repetitive, Beat Sneak Bandit makes up for it�s limited controls with intricatelevel designs and a really hip soundtrack. Because everything in-game is tied to music, there�s a LOTTTT of detailed, environmentalelements that react to the rhythm. Everything from trap doors and security cameras, to patrolling guards and even floating vacuumsare all connected to the background track... so there�s a lot to focus on if you want to make it to the end. To get past all the traps and obstacles, you�ll have to figure out the best moments to sneak across� and also when to slow downand take a chill pill. Players complete each level after they capture the biggest clock, but there are also bonus clocks scattered around every level. These extra bonus items create incentive to revisit levels and try out new strategy. After collecting a certain number of clocks, youcan unlock even more challenging stages to really test your espionage groove. The hand drawn graphics are clean, the animation is fluid, and the music is fresh. You can grab Beat Sneak Bandit now from theiTunes App Store for a reasonable $2.99. That�s it today for Tap that App. If you�ve got any apps you�d like us to check out, send them over to tapthatapp@cnet.com Thanksagain for watching! And we�ll catch you next time.
