    Though it won't test hardended point-and-click fans, Tiny Thief is a witty puzzle adventure packed with personality and character.

    There’s nothing fancy about Tiny Thief. It’s just adorable.

    There are five tutorials, which barely count as levels, and another 25 stages across five worlds. I was shocked by how well every level distinguished itself, even within worlds. Every new screen was like beginning a newly reset game of Mouse Trap, but with setup exorcised in favor of pure Goldbergian fun.

    In every way possible, Tiny Thief manages to raise the bar between what can be accomplished on the mobile platform today in 2013, as it settles right into its impeccable balance between fun, original gameplay, and the bright accessibility of games like Angry Birds.

    If you're a fan of adventure games, this is a no-brainer -- just don't be surprised if you spend an entire afternoon tearing through it, longing for more.

    Tiny Thief is one of the most refined titles ever appeared on smartphones and tablets.

    Tiny Thief is a lovely and original game with an incredible attention to detail in terms of graphics and gameplay: it's a little bit too short, but while it lasts it's one of the most enjoyable puzzlers out there.

    I love the Goblin games when I was younger, and this is very similar. A bit of a point and click for dummies in a good way. Solve the problems, collect the stars and suck out all the little details that will make you smile.
    Wonderful art and animations so the art director should have a big thumb up.

    A more modern game that can be compared whit tiny thief is Amanita Designs lovely game Machinarium.

    More like an interactive story book than a full game. Nice graphics, but low animation frame rate, and the scenes are quite static, feels and plays ok, but the game itself might be perhaps a bit too simple for some gamers; touch an object and see what happens. There's no music in-game, and the sound effects are quite simple. End of level loops are like four seconds long. Cannot really recommend this. Full Review »
