Tricky Thief from eastasiasoft and YeTa Games is a tile-based sliding puzzle game in which you must collect all the coins in each level. Once you’ve collected all coins, the exit door will open. It’s then that you’ll have to dash there before you make a mistake that forces you to restart the level. Security guards will try to catch you, so you’ll have to avoid bumping into them or sliding into their line of sight. There will also be some traps to avoid along the way.
The controls are straightforward since you’ll need to focus on sliding your thief up, down, left, or right by using the left analog stick or the D-Pad. The thief will continue to slide in that direction until it hits a wall, runs into an enemy, or ends up within their line of sight – or caught by a trap’s area of effects! That’s about all you’ll have to worry about as you dash through each level in a straight line.
The game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to unlock. The list has a single Silver trophy and 11 Gold trophies. Since this is a Cross-Buy title, your purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game, with each one having its own trophy list. You’ll need to collect 10, 25, and 50 coins, complete the first 25 levels, as well as get caught 6, 12, and 24 times in total. If you need some extra help, you can check out this Tricky Thief Trophy Guide.
Tricky Thief is a simple minimalist sliding puzzle experience in which you’ll have to collect coins as you stay away from security guards and traps in each of the game’s single-screen puzzles. The game is out as a Cross-Buy title with a budget price of only $4.99, so your purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
