Puzzler Burglars, Inc. released on iOS devices

An ingenious modern twist on Pipe Mania

For: iPhone

Puzzler Burglars, Inc. released on iOS devices

The best casual games are instantly recognisable but completely new at the same time. Candy Crush Saga and Threes! both look like standard matching puzzlers at first, but they both have tweaks that make them different from anything that went before.

Ditto Burglars, Inc. Despite the superficial resemblance with puzzle classic Pipe Mania (or, more recently, the hacking mini-games from BioShock), this is a totally new puzzle mechanic that we haven’t come across on the App Store before.

What’s more, it all comes wrapped up in a thrilling story and richly drawn characters. Playing as burglars Chase and her crew, you have to solve almost 200 puzzles, across eight different puzzle types, in a Robin Hood-like bid to fight injustice.

While the game boards are familiar, with rotating tiles that you have to spin so that the parts of a chain connect, Burglars, Inc. gives you branching pathways to incorporate into your finished chain.

To solve a puzzle fully you’ll need to make sure your network of chains incorporates as much of the loot, power-ups, and other items as possible, meaning you have to approach levels with some tactical nous.

You can spend your stolen loot on tools and other gear to use in subsequent levels, helping you gather even more loot, to spend on more items, and so on, in the kind of joyous compulsion loop that makes a game impossible to put down.

There are also badges and trophies to collect, ranks to climb, and hidden secrets to uncover.

Burglars, Inc., by experienced two-person team Fuzzy Orbit Games, looks like an incredibly accomplished product, with great writing, high quality visuals, and an ingeniously original game mechanic.

Oh, and Burglars, Inc. is free to download from the App Store [get], so what are you waiting for? You can also check out the game's trailer here.
