    MacHeist has just released their first foray into the world of iOS games with the release of The Heist [App Store].
    MacHeist has been a promotional partner with MacRumors in the past and is best known for its Mac app discount bundles. Their promotions have always been wrapped in some sort of puzzle/game element.

    The iOS app follows the same basic idea, but this time offering it wrapped in an iOS game with a prize awarded at the end. TouchArcade reports that the ultimate prize is a Steam code for a PC/Mac game worth "substantially" more than $0.99.

    (so while macheist has been a promotional partner with MacRumors in the past for bundle sales, this story's just been posted for interest, and not part of any sort of promotional deal)

    I am intrigued but before I spend $0.99 on the app, I would like more hints on what the prize will be. The game itself isn't that interesting enough to me spend money and time.

    Edit: I just read that the prize is a Steam code. Not interested.

    Is it for Portal or Portal 2? If the latter I will get this for sure! I already own Portal though. :apple:
    EDIT: Also just want to say that the game in question actually looks very well done, props to them!

    Aah I see. Their page said "Our cake is no lie", so it made me assume Portal. :apple:

    Was easy to beat the game... At least you get a prize, even though I may never play the prize game...

    There are in fact two prizes - if you complete all of the puzzles, you get a discount voucher for the next macheist bundle! Hopefully this means there definitely will be a next macheist bundle.
