    Cool, thanks. What about the second part? Like is it trial and error until you figure out the right way or are there multiple ways to succeed?

    (Sorry for all the questions. Only have a few bucks and I'm debating between this and saving for other games)

    No problem, totally understand. Not sure yet, still early in the game, but possibly. At the beginning of the level you are shown your objective, you figure out how to complete it with the secondary objectives for a complete rating. Hope this helps.

    In the early levels there is definitely a right way to do things, but who knows, maybe there is an opportunity to try different approaches in later levels as the scenarios get more complicated.

    Not a puzzle fan, but I'm strangely compelled to get this one.

    Okay so I've decided not to save for Breach and Clear because the Steam sale is tomorrow and I can get the older Rainbow Six games

    Which means I can get this game and have enough left for others

    So last question: App info says 6 levels. I'm guessing this means like 6 chapters divided into stages? How does that work?

    Yeah, each of the 6 chapters is made up of 5 levels. Complete each level to unlock the next one, Angry Birds-style.

    Completed the first chapter, and thought it was too easy, but the difficulty did pick up with the second string of levels. If you're a perfectionist like myself, finding the damn ferret (I believe it's a ferret!) in each level is a game on its own.

    And yes, oozes polish and all that's expected from something stamped with the Rovio name. Cutesy little game, nothing crazy, but I'm enjoying it.

    The game has 30 levels and some levels will take some time to finish and have several screens!

    I think completing the game may require 6-7 hours playing non stop and depending on how fast you solve the puzzles or go for all the hidden items and ferret :D

    Ok I just downloaded it and will give it a try later on, and I will have plenty of time to enjoy it this weekend as there is a mega typhoon coming to Japan and Taiwan....

    Indeed, but I must say my interest is piqued. Looks like it may have a little Nihilumbra to it with puzzles that are intriguing, mixed up with some super polish and humor.

    The charm in this game is off the charts. I haven't played much so far, but it's looking like a winner.

    Was waiting for this title since AGES (waaaaaaaaaaay before Rovio picked this up).

    I played just the tutorial and it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ADORABLE.
    Dumb easy, but SOOOOOOOOOO ADORABLE.

    It oozes polish at every tap....too bad it doesn't seem to support iCloud sync (well, at least it's Universal and GC).

    Can't wait to play more (on iPad this time).

    This game is like Layton Brother for me. Extremely polished in all departments, oozes charm, but somewhat on the easy side. Starting world 4 it's getting a little tedious (again just like Layton Brother) but the puzzles also got better which is a good thing. I hope this game gets DLC down the road since I am already on the way of completing it. Good stuff, casual, but highly enjoyable.

    Edit: Played more of world 4. Starting this world the level designs get really really good.

    Such a charming and adorable little game. So glad to finally see it out. This was one of the reasons I initially wanted to own an iPad (when it was supposed to be an iPad Only game). Can't recommend it enough.

    It's like Beat Sneak Bandit without the beat. I've played only the tutorial, but it looks, feels and plays like a great game.

    It's everything I hoped it would be. It's fun, polished, funny, addictive and beyond charming.
    It takes a lot of cues from Zack and Wiki but with a different coat of paint and tailored for a mobile device. I'm already at world 4 so the only thing I'm hoping is that Tiny Thief is a success and that we get more levels via DLC.
