TREASURE GRAB IS AN ABSOLUTE STEAL!
Treasure Grab is a fast-paced action packed game of breaking, entering and stealing everything that has not been nailed down…..And most of what has!
You play as the young thief named Alya Loot who is out to prove herself to the criminal fraternity by stealing precious heirlooms from four decadent nobles. Explores their mansions, pick the locks, trick the guards, and most importantly grab everything of any value – jewels, paintings, books, large statues, chairs everything!!
• Take control of a master thief and steal everything whilst staying one step ahead of the guards!
• 7 different Trickster powers to bamboozle the guards and maximize the spoils including slowing down time, disguise and invisibility.
• Your targets react to your actions meaning no two games are the same!
• Simple touchscreen controls, with hugely varied gameplay
• Discover the thrills of stealing, sneaking, picking locks and escaping from the guards.
• Stunning graphics and detail level

An ideal game for fans of arcade games such as PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN

Reasons I won't TOFTT on this one: one screen (and not even an ingame one) and a description that ends with an obnoxious list.

Nothing on their website, a placeholder image on the app store, what a disappointment! It looks kinda cool but really, how can they think this well sell without screenshots/videos/information??

Wishlist: Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers, Monkey Island, Sam & Max, Swords & Soldiers, Tyrian
Playing: Kryzer Prologue, Flight Control, Knights Onrush

No screenshots or videos yet? The poster do look great. Similar quality to Digital Chocolate's stuff.

From the description I'm having to assume it's a weird hybrid of Pac-Man with Thief...so no clue how that would work.

I'm thinking it's a 3rd person stealth kin of game.

Come on THQ, not even one ingame screen?

I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it.
Any game that does not provide pictures of game play, is hiding something. Plain and simple.
What other reason would they not show you what the game is like....oh yeah, because if they showed you, you wouldn't give them your money.

I decided to TOFTT, here are some screens from the first couple of minutes of gameplay

So far, all the game entails is picking up items, picking locks and evading guards. I'll give you guys some more detailed impressions after I've played it awhile longer - so far it doesn't seem too bad though, I'm just kind of worried that the game will be really short.
