Hello Banters and Bantresses,

Amazing Thief is a simple game in which you, a stick man who is a thief (I assume), jump or double jump through oncoming rectangles with gaps in them. The gaps come at different heights (naturally). The rectangles come in different colours which adds much needed colour to this otherwise bland game. That said, the plain, white background allows you to concentrate more on what you are doing.

The Double jump feature is very important to the game. There is a hint before you start that suggests you should drop a bit before jumping again. However, this is the medium
Amazing Thief is good, but needs something to draw more people in. There is nothing unique or new about it and this does not attract new players. A reward other than the medals you get after passing 10, 20 or 30 rectangles (which are somewhat underwhelming) would also be nice.

Overall, this is a nice, basic game but needs to add more features whilst maintaining that simplistic vibe that is it's only unique element. I would recommend if you are looking for a simple endless runner that is also a challenge. This review may seem a little short and that is because there really isn't much to this game and that's the beauty of it.

You've been reading an Olimg App Review, Thanks and come again!
