There are some great puzzles contained within the world of Rovio Stars’ Tiny Thief, and there’s a lot more things to like about the cutesy game. But has Rovio overestimated its worth by charging too much for the game, or is it worthy of your 300 pennies?
Tiny Thief is generally just a fun game. The graphics are unique and of high quality, and there is no screen tearing or graphical hiccups. The animation and art direction are both well done. There are some truly engaging puzzles contained within the game, and you’ll find yourself stumped once or twice while playing (hang in there, you’ll figure it out!!) The controls are very simple to use, as it is just a point and click game. There are also some brilliantly funny moments in the game that are worthy of a chuckle.
The worst thing about Tiny Thief is that it is so short. It has less than a couple of hours of gameplay (I’d estimate it at maybe an hour and ten minutes, if that), which definitely leaves room for Rovio to add more to this little gem of a game. Because of its short length, it would have been more respectable to price the game at 99 cents. I would have also liked to have seen an intro video that explained the premise of the game a little more; it feels like you are just thrown into the game without any explanation of who the tiny thief is.
The Ugly Truth
While Tiny Thief is a very cute game worthy of a few laughs, I have to question its value at $2.99 because of the shortness of the game. The graphics and animations are well put together, though. If Rovio were to add more levels, I might be able to suggest it to our readers. However, as the game currently stands right now, it isn’t worth your $2.99.
Would I Buy Again:No
Learning Curve:Very Low
Who Is It For:Anyone looking for some cutesy laughs
What I Like:Looks great, and there are some funny moments
What I Don't Like:Too short; not enough gameplay.
Final Statement:While Tiny Thief is a cute game, it is hard for me to recommend downloading it at $2.99.
