    Another solid retro homage, made even more appealing by the fact that it's free. That said, the high level of frustration makes it a bit too polarizing. You'll either relish the challenge, or delete the game out of anger.

    Half-inch Heist is an arcade game, in that it is a brutal reflex testing experience that has players replaying old ground unless they pony up cash to make use of the continue system.

    Half-Inch Heist can be nerve-wracking in a good way, the chiptune music is intense and a great fit, and I enjoy the pixel art style. With some tweaks to be more user-friendly, I think this could be a challenging-yet-fun game, instead of merely challenging my patience.

    While it has an interesting central idea, Half-Inch Heist is more about frustration than it is fun.

    Half-Inch Heist is a nice idea, let down by a lack of content and a slightly shoddy movement system. It's free-to-play so you might as well grab it anyway, but here's hoping a future update rectifies these issues.

    Half-Inch Heist is an excellent game that's seriously hampered by an exploitive pay structure.

    Offers a great game concept, but with poor execution leaving it as one to skip
