Stealth Horse: Adventures in Burgerland

"There is no clear explanation at this time for the presence of horse DNA in products emanating from meat plants that do not use horsemeat in their production process. In Ireland, it is not in our culture to eat horsemeat and, therefore, we do not expect to find it in a burger.”-- Food Safety Authority of Ireland chief executive Prof Alan Reilly, commenting (opens in new tab) on an investigation in which horsemeat was found in hamburgers being sold in the UK and Ireland. There's only one explanation:

Stealth Horse™ is a third-person Stealth Action game for Nintendo 3DS, which sees players take the reins of the eponymous Stealth Horse™ and infiltrate a burger production line at various stages in an attempt to get into the burger business. Literally.

To do this, Stealth Horse™ must carry out a variety of strict, time-based challenges at various stages of the burger production process. Whether intercepting a convoy of delivery vans in high-speed chase sections or quietly locating and utilising a meat grinder in the factory, 3DS' 3D capabilities are used to the fullest in this stylish, cel-shaded action game.

Choose your horseshoes carefully as you equip Stealth Horse™ with customised equipment for the next level. Will you go for silenced horseshoes for an extra edge while sneaking? Or perhaps titanium alloy for increased health specs and kick attacks? It could mean the difference between whinneying and losing.

Stages end with a series of vaults over hedgerows or production line equipment in order to build up enough speed to leap into the van or grinder. And if you fail at the main game, there's always the chance to dive between two pieces of bread in the fast food restaurant showdown. Can you find all the hidden sugarlumps? Can you solve the mystery pig challenges to save your own bacon? It's up to you, Stealth Horse™!
