Tiny Thief is a point and click adventure game that is part of the publisher Rovio Entertainment's Rovio Stars program.[1] It is set in a vaguely medieval period, although robots and lasers can be found.

The story of Tiny Thief follows a childlike Robin Hood, that steals from enemies such as the sheriff, pirates and bakers. The solving of puzzles normally requires stealth, meaning that if a guard sees the Thief, the level will restart at a certain point.

Rovio have discontinued the development of Tiny Thief and removed it from stores in February, 2016.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

In Tiny Thief, the goal is to steal a certain object placed in an area of the level. Each episode has five levels. Players controls a thief by tapping on an accessible area. Players may guide the thief into a ladder, door or anything like it to access more areas. Players can also let the thief pick up objects to help with the mission. Some levels require stealth, so if a guard sees the thief, the level will restart. The game uses the three-star rating format. The first star is earned by picking up hidden items, the second one is earned by stealing the primary item, and the third one is awarded when the thief's pet ferret is found.
