It’s the quintessential story of how men become criminals. ‘Daddy’ had a job once. Then he got fired. Why? The global financial crisis? Bankruptcy of his company? Horrible boss? We’ll never know. But what we do know is that he had children to feed and that is why he turned to a life of crime. The heist was easy, he simply robbed a bank. But now daddy needs a hand with his getaway. He isn’t experienced at this sort of thing and that is why his badly thought out getaway is through the floors of an endless high rise. And there you have it, your endless runner.
The floors aren’t empty, though. They are filled with ninja grannies and police officers ready to serve justice. You must break through the floors, all the while collecting money by destroying appliances. Some of these objects can be used in special ways. Jump on a bathtub to smash through several floors at once and avoid the occasional rocket that comes your way. Or get hit by a laser and experience first-hand, ‘Honey I shrunk myself!’ You’ll also have to swim through the plumbing to make your great escape. The infinite tumble through the floors is quite enjoyable and you’ll wonder how strong a person would have to be to break floors as if they were biscuits. There are smaller mini-games which pop up after a few levels. There’s a casino that you can get to by completing pin-ball like objectives.
Daddy was a thief features really slick graphics and you’ll definitely take the side of the adorably chubby criminal. You can buy costumes and power-ups for daddy with all the money you collect by breaking things. You could have him dress as a pirate or have rad purple hair. Play this game because everyone loves a criminal with a heart of gold and also because it is an aesthetic delight.
