Rovio has been teasing the release of Tiny Thief for some time now. We first saw mention of it back in mid-May when they announced the Rovio Stars program. You see, Tiny Thief is coming by way of Rovio Stars but is has actually been developed by 5Ants. This game release marks the second under the Rovio Stars program. But with that in mind, Tiny Thief is the only Rovio Stars release available for Android.
Putting that aside, Tiny Thief can be found by way of the Google Play Store and it is priced at $2.99. The game is currently sitting at version 1.0.0 and with support noted as being for devices with Android 2.3 or later. Tiny Thief is a point-and-click style game that promises to “charm you with its very own visual style and offbeat sense of humor.”
While we have yet to run through the full game, we have spent some time checking it out. At first launch we can say that Tiny Thief does indeed have its very own visual style. We sort of like the way it all looks, but as always that will be up to the individual to decide.
More to the point here, the game play is on the simpler side, but yet still fun and entertaining. Another point worth mentioning, we suspect this will be a good game for all ages to play. We did run through the first few levels and from what we have experienced — we can say the game play is easy to pick up. Just like the game style would imply, you point and click your way through the game.
The object of the game is to save the princess and the kingdom. Tiny Thief includes six adventures and will have you going against foes to include the Dark Knight as well as some rogue pirates. The game will also have you going up against some dragons, a giant robot and evil sheriff.
Otherwise, while the game play is simple and likely good for all ages, the description brings talk of everything from “a world of greed, corruption and injustice” to how the Tiny Thief must use “cunning and trickery to outsmart his opponents.” Sounds like fun.
