In Card Thief you move through a deck of cards as a stealthy thief. Sneak in the shadows, extinguish torches, pickpocket guards and steal valuable treasures without getting caught.

Card Thief, the official follow up to Tinytouchtales excellent dungeon crawler Card Crawl, attempts to condense the classic stealth genre into a solitaire style card game.

The game offers an accessible core gameplay with a deep layer of tactical planning and various risk reward mechanics on top. In 4 different heists you can test your skills against various enemy and trap types. By successfully completing heists you can unlock and upgrade 12 equipment cards each with a unique ability to improve your highscores.

Editors' Notes

Stealth fans, you’re in for a treat. We’re truly impressed by how intense it is to loot castles in this beautiful, solitaire-style game. Mastering just when to grab treasure and avoid guards takes a while, so doing it right feels terrific. Fun fact: Tinytouchtales cites the game Thief: The Dark Project as a key inspiration—and they really did capture the vibe of that classic sneak-fest.

1 stars are nonsense. Read this.


I made this 4 stars just because you might read it, given the strange divide of 1star and 5star reviews here.

Firstly, I want to say that I’ve played Card Crawl, Card Thief, and Miracle Merchant... (same developer) and I would rank them in that order, with MM being a big jump away from Card Thief, and Card Thief being only a small hop away from Card Crawl.

The 1star hate is a bit over the top to be honest... the tutorial is simply explained and over quickly. This is a beautiful and well designed game that you will definitely enjoy if you enjoyed Card Crawl (though it is a different game!) and also quite probably if you’ve never heard of that game at all.

It SEEMS a little simple at first, but quickly develops into a fun and thoughtful game with fantastic artwork. I would happily recommend both this and Card Crawl to support the developer, because these games are different, and extremely fun and well thought out. If you’re interested, ignore the hate and hype, and just buy it already. :)

The positive reviews don't add up


I feel tricked into buying this app. I was looking for a 'thinking' game that's challenging but also addictive.

Unfortunately I found this didn't tick any of those boxes. It was dull, seemed a bit too wrapped up in itself (rather than thinking about the user/player) and I win it every single time.

Sadly, I don't play it any more and felt I should warn others that the 5 star reviews don't seem to make sense for this game (relative to other games I know and their more appropriate reviews). Finally, the reason for the low score was the lack of good instructions. It wasn't even clear how to get the game started at first! You had to click on an image with no words saying "start" or "play". Weird choice of design...
