Game field consist of cells. There are two types of them: Road and Wood. You're playing as a cop and your opponent (PC) is a thief.
You can place cops in any free cells .Thief can move on one cell in any direction, except those cells with cops.
So your goal is to surround or corner the thief, using your cops.
If thief is on the Wood cell, he'll leave some money on it. You can collect this money, placing cop in this cell. When you have enough money, you'll receive an extra cop!
In some cells there are loot bags. Thief crave to collect them. When he gets one, you'll need more money for an extra cop. If he collect them all, you'll fail.
