Daddy Was a Thief

JohnBDaddy Was a Thief is a solid little arcade game from Rebel Twins, creator of the gorgeous mobile game Crumble Zone. The story begins with dear old dad losing his job, then picking up a How-To book on robbery so he can nip off to the bank for a bit of thievery. When the action begins dad is making his escape. The only problem is there are hundreds of things standing between his high-rise hijinks and the safety of terra firma.

Daddy Was a ThiefYour basic goal in Daddy Was a Thief is to stomp down through the floors of the building so you can escape the police. Swipe down on the screen to heave dad around and break the floor. You can also swipe upwards to jump, useful for avoiding small obstacles. As you progress to lower floors you'll encounter more and more things that want to end your game. In addition to armed officers on some floors, you'll run into missiles firing from outside and even shrink rays to turn you into a tiny daddy. Some items are there to help you out, though, such as the refrigerator shield or the bathtub that lets you crash down several floors at once. And let's not forget a few stops at the pinball-like casino as we make our escape!

Between rounds you can visit the shop to spend coins on various upgrades. They tend to be on the expensive side, unfortunately, so unless you're extremely lucky/skilled, you'll probably end up investing in a few small in-app purchases to beef yourself up. Apart from that, Daddy Was a Thief is practically perfect. The interface is simple and easy to use and the graphics are just plain gorgeous. It's one of those games you'll have to make yourself put down!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
