    Fun for hours

    I love the game... just one question...
    To upgrade the black jack card I need to use it 3 times in one heist... but it can only be used 2 times ....... so ... what's up
    with that !!???

    Good game but short

    the game is very fun and rather addictive, but it lacking in content. it kept me busy for a couple hours of playtime, but after
    you've completed the 4th dungeon, there's nothing left to do but upgrade your cards, if they're not already done. after that
    there's not much reward for playing

    Great follow up to Card Crawl

    Really interesting take on a card based dungeon crawler. Also nice to see the dev support the game with FREE content update.
    This is a premium game with no free to play nonsense, no IAPs, and no secondary currency/timer gates.

    Loved the new update, until it broke! I was doing the daily challenge, when the game crashed. I thought, "oh well, I'll just
    reopen the app." When I tried to reopen the app it continued to crashed even after restarting my phone. I did leave the game
    ruining on the daily challenge in the background f

    Stylistic Well Executed

    I enjoy this game a lot. I was thoroughly confused after going through the tutorial the first time. But after playing for about
    an hour, I went through the tutorial a second time and at that point finally understood how the game worked. The game has an
    interesting aesthetic and skilled execution

    Well Crafted & Very Fun! A must buy!

    if you are a fan of card crawl, this dev's other card game, then you'll like this. it's a well-crafted, fun, good looking and
    . the art, animations, and sound design are fantastic. the gameplay is really well done, and the game is worth all of
    what they are asking. i'm well into the last

    Ignore the bad reviews

    People who rate this game poorly aren't the right people to listen to. This game is so mechanically and strategically sound I
    jumped right in and got hooked. Buy it.

    Worthy sequel of Card Crawl

    Although I prefer Card Crawl, Card Thief is excellent and I love the exciting gameplay and replayability it offers. It is more
    "thinky" than Card Crawl, and that is why I prefer Card Crawl. Nevertheless, you will put a lot of time into this game and not
    regret it.

    Great core gameplay

    This game is a lot of fun. It has some uniquely cool mechanics that simulate thieving techniques in interesting ways.

    The only downside is the game becomes a bit of a grind. You keep replaying very similar levels over and over.

    I wish there was a little more to the campaign, such as unique items

    Rogue Strategy Fun

    been having a lot of fun with this game. it is the game i keep coming back to, and see myself playing for years to come. very
    thoughtful game mechanics and unique art tied together with rewarding strategy make this game worth the one time payment.

    Great Compulsive Fun

    at first it felt like a lot of rules to absorb, but despite losing game after game i found it really fun and addictive. gradually
    i got the hang of it and it just got better and better. i rarely play anything for an extended period, but this has had me coming

    card thief is such a pleasurable game but it needs more content.i liked the previous card game (card crawl) that you guys created

    this game is still in the early stages, but i know from having played card crawl that the creators will continue to fine tune this
    already wonderful game.

    Nice little collection of mechanics make for an entertaining card game with strong physical placement and path finding mechanics.
    Definitely recommended.

    i actually like this game a lot. i play this more than its counterpart “card crawl.”

    it would be great to see some more content compelling play beyond the set goals built into the game… it's still fun but there is
    nothing new to achieve

    i would recommend this game to anyone who likes a goo

    Great game from the makers of card crawl

    it's fun challenging and takes a little bit of whit. i would give it a 5 star rating if they had added a bit of deeper card detail
    and a solid faq.

    Very addictive

    A surprisingly well done stealth card game, which will seem very strange at first, but give it a short while, and you realize how
    deep the mechanics go, and before you know it, it really does feel like you're sneaking through a castle. Very well animated and
    put together.

    Wonderful and addictive!

    absolutely great game. lots of little bits of strategizing to learn so you are constantly pushing yourself to do better, but the
    game has an appropriate learning curve so you're not left failing because you aren't picking up on the details fast enough.

    from the second the game opens it pulls you in with its whimsical art, eerie music and clever card animations. i throughly enjoyed
    discovering all the nuances of game play. the game strategy is challenging, but extremely fun to learn. i cannot wait until the
    developers add more content and a purpose

    I was wrong this game is good.

    Once you figure it out it's fantastic.
    The only problem with the game is that a certain number of power up cards should be single use and purchased from the guild master
    with gems earned on heists.
    The insignias are cool but the trash loot is not. Give me a reason to want gems other than score.

    A pleasant surprise

    Originally I thought this game would get boring quick, but after playing a few sets, I realized the maps were all random and you
    could add equipment adding to the outcomes of each game. A neat idea would be to hopefully add more thieves in the game, perhaps
    give each thief a special ability or passi

    Good once you figure it out

    The game as a steep difficulty curve as others have said, but it's worth it once you get the hang of it. Two tips: 1) You can get
    away with anything if you have stealth points. You're only in trouble once you run out. 2) Play conservatively, you only need to
    make 2 moves per turn, so there's no need

    Excellent and Worth the Effort

    It's rare that I would offer an app a full 5-stars -- really rare. But Card Thief is worth every pointed star.

    Admittedly, there is a learning curve. Even after playing through the tutorial a couple of times, I was still left questioning how
    some of the card values changed, as well as how some of

    Actually the game doesn't have a steep learning curve as stated by a couple of reviews. Many videos in You Tube available.
    Be aware that game is extremely addicting and one of the best I have played in a long time.

    Fun but has some issues

    - the graphics, sounds, and music are all well done.
    - this is a fun strategy, solitaire game. sometimes you can win sometimes you lose.

    It's alright

    for the price, it's a fun little time waster. one of those things you'll get good at quick enough but competing for the high
    scores could take time to master.

    the problem is, after unlocking all the gear and upgrading it, getting higher and higher scores doesn't feel appealing.

    Great game, keeps losing my progress

    i love the game and it's aesthetic. it's really terrific. this would be a five star app, no question, except that it has reset my
    progress twice with no warning. still fun to play, but frustrating to have to unlock the same parts over and over.

    Random losses that don't match the "rules"

    apparently the tutorial leaves some aspects of the game out because i lose randomly and have no clue why. my thief is not adjacent
    to lit cards or guards and yet i get caught somehow. very fun game when it makes sense.

    Needs work.

    The learning curve is too steep. The tutorial is useless, and in actual play it seems like you just lose at random. Lights get
    dropped in after you clear cards and you just lose. Can't recommend.
