New Tiny Thief Game Comes From One Of The Biggest Names In Gaming, Rovio
Rovio has just released the second game to be launched under its Rovio Stars third-party game publishing initiative. As announced by the Finnish entertainment company as it unveiled Rovio Stars itself last May, the game in question is called Tiny Thief:
In a world of greed, corruption and injustice, one little guy decides to stand up for the little guy! Say hello to Tiny Thief, an unconventional hero who uses cunning and trickery to out-smart his opponents across six epic medieval adventures. But beware! He faces fearsome foes, like the Dark Knight, rogue pirates and even a giant robot!Developed by Barcelona-based 5 Ants, Tiny Thief is essentially a point-and-click puzzle-solving hidden-objects adventure game. What sets it apart from most other games of its kind is the fact that it's set in a medieval fantasy world and that it features a distinctive visual style and an offbeat sense of humor not unlike that of Rovio's flagship game, Angry Birds. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Optimized for iDevices running iOS 5.0 or later, Tiny Thief is available now in the App Store for $2.99. Unlike most of Rovio's iOS offerings, the game already comes as a universal download for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The first title to be published under the Rovio Stars banner was released a couple of weeks ago in the form of the physics-based puzzle game Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. Developed by London-based Nitrome Ltd., Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is an expanded edition of the award-winning Icebreaker Flash game. Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage was reviewed quite favorably here on AppAdvice. Check back with us later to see whether Tiny Thief fares just as well. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
