THE STORY

Ever fancied yourself as a master criminal? Or even a common thief? Well, now is your chance. Delve into a world of petty crimes and medieval puzzles in Rovio Stars' Tiny Thief for Android, iPhone and iPad.

THE EXPERIENCE

"But Life of Android, I am an honest person and my parents taught me that stealing is bad." Don't fret dear reader, this isn't really stealing, it's Robin Hood crime. Y'know – stealing from the greedy rich and giving back to the deserving poor. You're basically doing society a favour, so you can sit back down and play Tiny Thief with a squeaky clean conscience. The game is designed as a simple point and click puzzler, with a list of items to find on each level in order to progress. In the beginning it's easy enough to swipe the loot behind the turned backs of patrolling guards, but it doesn't stay this simple for long. In one level you have to release a small farmyard's worth of caged animals in order to trigger distractions, leaving the path wide open to lead a pig out the front door. Tiny Thief is brought together with brightly coloured 2D graphics and a gentle, offbeat humour. However, the control system could be a bit more complex, with a limited range of actions meaning most puzzles can be solved through a bit of trial of error. It's also a fairly basic offering for the £1.99 price tag, but as ever Rovio have come up trumps in the playability stakes. [Not a valid template]

THE BOTTOM LINE

Rovio aren't exactly reinventing the wheel with Tiny Thief, but there's a certain charm to its small-crime goals. We love an underdog here at Life of Android, and heroes don't come much more unlikely than this little guy.
