Not a terrible game, just a simple idea well executed. You play as a robber and must sneak around collecting coins and avoiding the guards. If you have played the Friday the 13th game it’s much the same deal, I’m talking about the slider puzzle game, not the 3rd person 4v1 game! With easy trophies and simple controls, Tricky Thief is a short but enjoyable puzzle experience.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
