Heist tells the thrilling story of a daring bank robbery set in the prohibition era of 1920s America. A carefully comprised plan with as little mess as possible turns horribly wrong, leaving you to fight your way out of an impossible situation. What are you willing to do to come out on top?

You begin the story as a low level enforcer for the mafia working under the enigmatic Salvatore Da Luca, a veteran from the recently ended Great War. Once he inspired acts of valour in the trenches, now he uses those same qualities for greed and corruption by liberating banks of their excess holdings.

Sal doesnt work alone, his trusted associate Giuseppe Gallo always teams up for the score. Hes known as the loose cannon who can wind up being more trouble than hes worth. Shoot first; ask question later is how he operates. He has a grudge with the world, and hes not too fond of you either. You better make sure not to put a foot wrong.

The bank just opened and the score's all set, are you in?

What the fans are saying:

If this plays as smooth as Rage, this is a muzzbuy.

My only problem with Rage is the way you end up fighting the automatic camera controls when trying reach goodies like ammo and health packs. In a way, it gives you too much control over camera movement, but then forces you down it on-rails path, which makes the experience (for me) awkward and not very enjoyable.

I'm hoping that this works more like House of the Dead, where you can target only what's visible on the screen. Definitely intrigued, and at .99, kind of a no-brainer.

Rage camera shifts dont really bother me. Like most rails shooters, memorizing the paths and item locations are a part of the replay must-dos anyway.

Youre right about the price bit... 0.99 and it should be in everyone's device.

Rage is comfortably one of my top five iOS games of all time. And it's place in my personal 'hall of fame' was further cemented by the excellent recent update and additional content. Therefore, thanks to JC's on-rails masterpiece, HEIST is definitely an instabuy for me tonight!
