    In late June, Rovio's publishing label Rovio Stars released its first game, Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, which turned out to be quite successful. Today the company's second app, Tiny Thief, debuted on the App Store and it looks like it's going to be a hit as well.

    In the game, players take control of a thief, using the character to sneak and steal to solve a variety of puzzles and defeat enemies. Tiny Thief utilizes basic tap commands to allow players to guide the thief through each stage, bypassing guards and other dangers.

    Our sister site TouchArcade spent some time with Tiny Thief and found it to be both challenging and charming.
    Tiny Thief is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for $2.99. [Direct Link]

    You're complaining about $3?!

    Really annoys me. Until mobile gaming took off, you know how much you'd have been expected to pay for something like this?

    Weird. It works on mine. And yes, I am positively sure I have iPhone 4, not 4S.

    Liked it

    The game is pretty fun. It is a little clunky at points, in that some things dont necessarily make sense. For example the requirement to exit the screen to end the round once you have already clearly accomplished the goals and escaped. ...also having to walk to interactive points and then tap on them rather than a simple tap on the point activating the logical sequence. There are a few other odd things but on the whole a cool game. The comic strip interludes are a typical but nice Rovio touch.

    I thought this game was independently developed. Maybe Rovio just published it...

    I think that is indeed the case.
