The Heist: Dare to Crack the Vault!
Are you a good puzzle-solver? Are your skills enough to unlock the super protected vault where the most precious prize is hidden? Learn what’s so protected by the developers in the most exciting puzzle game The Heist.
Once you’ve got to the game The Heist, the first question you may be asking is “What’s behind the vault?” The developers call the item hidden there a precious one, which cannot simply omit your attention and willingness to try. Besides, there is a whole operation behind cracking the vault. There are agents, one of whom is Sophia, a mysterious girl who calls your number in the beginning of the game and at certain points of your game’s progress. The entire script behind a simple puzzle game makes it hard to resist playing it, and once you’ve started, it is extremely hard not to let yourself complete it.

How It’s Played
Puzzles. As the game begins, you receive a phone call (which feels very real) from a girl Sophia who tells you that you need to crack the vault in a short amount of time. Then you see a vault which is carefully guarded by levels of security; you let go of them by solving puzzles, which are of four different types. The first type is block puzzles where you move colored blocks in order to get a chip. The second type of puzzles involves hieroglyphs, and these puzzles may remind you of Sudoku ones. The third type of puzzles is about moving blocks by a little robot and not walling him with them. In the last type of puzzles, you move colored tiles, so that you complete a certain pattern. Solving each puzzle gives you a certain amount of energy, which you will use then to unlock the vault.
What to Expect. You should expect mysterious phone calls, which seem just like real, during the game. In general, you will face a lot of challenge when solving the puzzles: while the first ones are pretty easy, the next ones can be extremely hard. Also, be prepared for a really great prize at the end. If the rumors are true, you will definitely love it!
What You Need. To unlock the vault, you need patience and to activate your logic thinking. The puzzles are quite complicated, so you will need a lot of both.
The New Version.
