Game summary:
Heist is a point n' click adventure where you play as a thief determined to find & escape with money that is said to be hidden in an abandoned house. In this adventure you face many obstacles, while basically looking around for items to complete your mission. There are many ways to get yourself killed, and you will most likely figure this out the hard way. The games toughest obstacles are the random death sequences, these are instances in which the house throws a random death-trap your way, all of these requiring split-second reaction time with a click of a mouse or a stroke of a key. Death-trap react buttons are all arrow keys, space bar, and/or a mouse click. Death-traps aside, Heist also consists of a series of puzzles to keep you thinking in the midst of all the horror. Get ready for an exciting trip to hell :)

Quick note:
This is my second submission to newgrounds as well as my first "serious" project,as my first submission was a bit of a learning experience, so i will appreciate any reviews & thoughts on my game. I spent roughly 8 months working on this game on & off.

If you get stuck or have questions, click help from the main menu, and click "download walkthrough", this will bring you to the heist info site.

Thank you & enjoy the game!

Could have been a great game but the traps are too difficult and you don't get enough lives before having to start completely over. Just not worth replaying, especially when you know that you will lose. You should have made a skill level selection or god mode. That way everyone would be able to finish and be satisfied at completing the game.

Ahhh this game play it long time ago and, it doesn't hold up, but sure is intresting to look back, and go "WHY DID I PLAY THIS, OR EVEN LIKE THIS?" Yes you have to yell that out.

If this game was a food it would be some weird flavor you remember trying, and thinking you liked, only to try it a few years later to hate it.

LOL, ouch. It was my first attempt at a game man, I agree though, definitely weird to play now.
