The Silver Award-winning Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure ranks as one of the most criminally underplayed games in the 3DS's library, and copies aren't easy to find.
Thankfully, Sega has done us all a solid and released Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper for iOS. This is an abridged version of the original, and and an almost perfect rhythm game.
Almost. There's a gem of a game here if you can get past some slightly obtrusive social mechanics and the fact that you can't play Rhythm Thief unless you're connected to the internet.
Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper is a near-perfect rhythm game held back only by its persistent social integration and always-on connectivity requirements.
