  2. I like your style!
    by EJEL, Denmark - Jul 3rd 2017

    Great game! Love the music, characters, gameplay, and all the levels. Only downside is the occasionaly crashing of the game.... Luckly it saves automatically. And I felt like some of the controls could have been improoved.

  3. Mac cursor, click problem tarnishes a good one
    by mudixon, USA - Dec 13th 2016

    I really want to like this game, but it was obviously not originally designed for Mac users (or ported properly to work with the Mac). At first launch, the cursor was invisible. Fumbling to the options page, I was able to turn off the "hardware cursor" option, which allowed the game's mouse cursor to reappear. During the lengthly tutorial, I struggled with what should have been easy stuff: right-click this and left-click that. I was using an Apple mouse (wired) and right-clicking rarely worked. Control-right clicking seemed to work better, but it took me a while to figure it out. Come on, developer! But it's hit and miss. Without being able to reliably click on something in the game, what's the point?

    Otherwise, graphics look really good and it runs like a charm, at the highest visual settings on a 2014 iMac 21.5". Retro (think Ocean's 11 soundtrack) music plays throughout. Voice acting is okay, but the programmers didn't program enough pause between some of the dialog, so it sometimes sounds like they're trying to interrupt each other by cutting in right after the other's sentence is over. Again, a little sloppy there. The storyline reminds me of "The Italian Job".

  4. One of the best game I've ever played
    by Xantas, Italy - Dec 4th 2016

    Crookz is a mix of squad-tactical, stealth puzzle and semi-real strategy game. Plus there is a plot: the story revolves around a group of professional highly skilled thieves seeking revenge against a former member team who betrayed them some years before. And to reach that goal, you'll deal with 18 missions, each on a big, complex map, in an execellent level progression and difficulty curve. The game has a good replayability. Note: I've played the game on Ubuntu, and on that OS the game has proved to be stable and robust; never had a single crash, and this is very rare for games not targeted towards Windows machines!

  6. Well done and addictive
    by kerid, France - Sep 12th 2016

    Crookz is a very well done stealth game IMHO, it's addictive and fun to play. It has an active pause system so you can take all your time to look the map and plan your moves. Quite simple at basic levels, but it gets harder after time of course. I'm loving it, so I bought a second copy to gift...

  7. Freezes
    by Doudli, Canada - Aug 27th 2015

    Intersting game. Lots of coordination needed between the thieves to make it through a mission. I like the stealth it requires. Unfortunately, the game freezes often, often so long as to not respond at all, and requires a restart.

    Waiting for an update impatiently.
