    Overall, The Heist is a really well designed and fun puzzle game for the iPhone. If you're a fan of solving challenging puzzles, you'll get a kick out of this game and its creative bank robbery premise gives it extra fuel for success.

    Thanks to some super-challenging puzzles, unique presentation elements, and the tease of a possible prize for those who see all 60 levels through to the end, The Heist manages to take a number of old elements and turn them into something compelling.

    But by and large, everything plays quite well. The game also looks good, with a nicely designed vault-cracking theme for each puzzle - although I'm not quite sure how the zen garden stylings of the Sudoko-like puzzles relate to cracking vaults.

    This cleverly packaged collection of puzzles will have even the most determined gamers scratching their noggins.

    In isolation, all would be entertaining if rather sterile. But in the context of the heist and the pretend phone-calls from the lovely Sophia, The Heist proves greater than the sum of its parts.
