"They didn't give him much of a choice"

Reviewed by / May 14, 2013

Daddy Was A Thief is a vertical platformer with an original gameplay

Daddy was unfairly fired from work and he still has hungry mouths to feed. Desperate, and looking for vengeance, he started studying robbery techniques with a final goal in mind: break the bank. In fact, the game begins after the robbery, when the cute fatty daddy is trying to escape going down floors through a endless building.

Thus, what we got here is a vertical platformer where players must tap to break floor' ground in order to escape from police, missiles and other elements that will try to avoid him escape justice. It's up to that he achieves it.

Daddy Was A Thief is one of those timekillers based on the-further-you-get-the-better gameplay. Actually, it's like a vertical Canabalt, a downscroller. Besides the excellent cartoonish graphics, the original game concept and the frantic pace, DWAT's plus point is the upgrade system featured in the shop. You can enhance daddy's skills, buy power-ups and other upgrades. That makes the game evolve and way more interesting.

The only catch: we'd like to escape through levels, that's it, different buildings or environments and (why not?) even having an "end". Endless games can get boring sooner than the ones with an end, specially if they don't include online leaderboards to compete against other players.
