Thief Lupin is a fun and fast paced side-scroller iPhone app from BLUE WIND. You can choose between a few cartoony characters and immediately get thrust into the action. The background of Thief Lupin is that you are a thief and you have received an invitation to become the King of Thieves by sneaking into the world’s top most famous buildings and bypassing their security, winner takes all!
This game is fast and fun. It is reminiscent of the side-scrollers from years past that brought us so much amusement back in the day. There are new threats that appear in each of the levels and a boss to defeat at the end of each level. While it is 2D, the graphics are quick and look slick. The motion is smooth and it never fluttered or staggered during gameplay.
Thief Lupin is probably one of the easiest games I have played with regards to controls. All you have to do is tap the screen anywhere and your character does a motion that will allow you to get through each level. Sometimes when you touch the screen he will jump, the next time he will fly in the air, sometimes even scrunching down for a power jump. The levels are quick to reset if needed, thus the action comes at you fast, and you must be quick to be crowned king of thieves!
If you like side-scrolling video games in the realm of Castlevania or Mario, then you will like Thief Lupin. You don’t get to shoot at targets, but you get to duck, dodge, jump, and dodge obstacles. I did say dodge, right? Thief Lupin doesn’t have any real violence in it, and it is rated for all ages. Kids can easily play this game with its ONE control. But, don’t let the simple interface fool you! This game provided hours of fun for a variety of age groups that we exposed to the iPhone app.
Thief Lupin is free, and I certainly felt that there was significant value to the game, hence as a free app, we were highly impressed.
Dust off your dodging skills, jump on iTunes, and download Thief Lupin. It will be a great game to loose yourself in for hours. Easy controls and fast gameplay make this a great game. Since it’s free, there is no reason not to check it out. Who knows, with enough practice, you could become the King of the Thieves!
