Stop Thief!

January 31st, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

There simply aren’t enough “catch the hidden bad guy” games out there or at least, I don’t own as many as I’d like.  “The Omega Virus” and “Clue: The Museum Caper” were the first ones I’ve ever played and ever since I’ve been hooked.  “Stop Thief” has players trying to catch a hidden thief who is controlled by an App (downloadable via a cell phone, tablet, etc.). Catching a thief earns you money and if you earn enough, you win!  Like “Scotland Yard”, spaces are numbered giving players an easy way to compare the app’s hints and messages with the actual board.  My only grief was with the app, which froze on me once and isn’t user-friendly in the sense that I didn’t know that the difficulty drop down menu was actually a drop down and not simply a header.  Minor complaints aside, this is a fairly interesting and strategic game that will test your deductive reasoning skills via audio cues.  The version I purchased is a remake of the 1979 version and I felt was worth the buying price of about $20 on Amazon.

Like my other reviews as of late, I’ve opted to supplement a video in place of a long-winded written review due to health reasons.  I hope it’ll give you a taste as to what you’re in for should you decide to pick this up.

Final Verdict: 7/10
