  • Summary: The evil Dr Puss has stolen a priceless diamond, and only you can get it back! Venture into the depths of Dr Puss' security vault and test your mettle as you dodge his deadly army of enemies, hell-bent on making sure you never leave with the diamond alive.

    Half-Inch Heist will test your
    reflexes, reactions and endurance as you battle to stay alive. Each level brings a new challenge, guarded by diabolical bosses including LazerPussy, Pork Hammer and Skullatron.

    It pays homage to the arcade games of old, featuring beautiful pixel graphics and a hand-crafted soundtrack.

    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 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 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 is an excellent game that's seriously hampered by an exploitive pay structure.

    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.

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