Star Thief is a truly original level-based arcade game designed specifically for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

• FREE level pack updates
• 50 levels
• 4 unique worlds
• Beautiful RETINA art
• Game Center achievements
• Multi-touch enabled for local co-op play
• NO in-app purchases
• NO ads
• NO annoying notifications

The core gameplay mechanic is simple - collect all the stars by tapping or swiping on the screen.

However, it becomes more complex as you avoid touching freeze blocks and levels increase speed. Some stars are trapped in cages that can only be opened by dragging and smashing rocks into them. Other stars are locked away inside treasure chests that require keys, and some stars are even hidden within eggs that need to be cracked open or smashed together.

There's a wide variety of game mechanics used to provide enough gameplay for each level to feel unique and challenging.

Check it out today!

What's New in Version 1.1

• Level 4-5 is not so difficult!
• Bug fix for Finger Draggin' achievements
• Added world names to the level select screen

Thanks for your support and feedback everyone!

Customer Reviews

Outstanding game so far! Definitely get this game:)

Ok seriously, this game is pretty cool so far. The gameplay is basically "touch all the stars as the level progresses" but that is NOT as easy as it sounds as you get further into the game. I just made it level 1-6 and I was almost panicking trying to get all of them. It's fun and I'm sorry the developer wasn't getting a lot of recognition for it:( This is the first game using this kind of game mechanic I've played before.

Graphics: Very cute and sharp
Sound: Good?
Controls: Very tight and responsive

It might change later on, but for now there are NO ads or IAP! Yay!

IAP is App Store cancer and I avoid it no matter how much I like the game. I think it is being abused and I don't see a way to fix it except punishing any developer that tries to use it. I know that's extreme but I don't have a better solution.

Loved it!

I bought it, played the whole thing and am willing to offer 'favors' for more levels! Cereally, it was that good! I love these skill based tapping games. Hopefully there will be many more additions, sequels, packs, etc. Whatever you wanna call 'em, I just hope there's more of em! In the meantime, don't think, just buy! You won't regret it!


From the ridiculously catchy start jingle to the just right art style, this is one of those games you will find yourself driven to replay until you've captured every star.
