Tiny Thief coming to iOS, Android tomorrow

Rovio Stars has announced that 5ants' Tiny Thief will hit iOS and Android devices tomorrow.


Rovio has announced that the puzzle game Tiny Thief will hit iOS and Android devices tomorrow. The medieval fantasy game uses point-and-click adventure mechanics to guide your little pilferer through his sneaky exploits.

The announcement promises six quests, as you steal from locales like a pirate ship and a castle. The trailer (below) shows off the hero climbing, outrunning guards, and using stealth tricks. In short, it looks like Assassin's Creed except adorable.

This is being published through Rovio's "Stars" label, which the company announced in May. Rovio Stars specializes in publishing promising games from third parties, and debuted its first game last month with Nitrome's Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. Tiny Thief is developed by the relatively small studio 5ants, but the Rovio name will likely do it some favors.
