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

    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.

    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 a cute, challenging, and inventive offering that sucks you in from the get-go with it's ample charm. It has its tough moments, but they're worth muscling through.

    With beautiful cartoony graphics this game is a must-have for mobiles and tablets. It has an original concept, is really funny and it’s only a few euros. All the levels are different, a fantastic achievement by developer Rovio.

    Tiny Thief isn't particularly difficult, but its bite-sized challenges are a perfect fit for a quick session on the move and provide just enough mental exercise to blow the cobwebs away on the journey to work.

    Tiny Thief is a charming reduction of the point-and-click adventure, though its charm and polish cover over some pretty basic trial-and-error gameplay.

    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. Expand
