First of all, this a a modified version of GokuSSJ's Mod in which you're trapped in a house and have to escape. As such, it is very similar in gameplay... and spelling (though Goku is from Poland, English is not his first language). Goku seems to have released it under some sort of open source license meaning anyone can copy and modify it.

The gameplay is almost identical to "Trapped" but instead of breaking out of a house sealed by a dastardly real-estate agent, Dink decides to become a "theif". The concept is that Dink has a limited time to steal items to the value of 4000 Gold before "the time runs out" which for some reason involves Dink dying. In "Trapped" this was explained to be because Dink was dying of hunger, whereas no explanation is given in "theif" and Dink's health declines for no reason.

The graphics, if not from the original game, are Goku's, or in the case of the title screen, painted over.

It seems the author put very little effort into the modification of anything other than placing a few trees and editing the lines of dialogue. The graphics are uninspiring and the title screen is spelled wrong, the plot is incredibly mediocre, and the dialogue is horrendously written. There is no reason why the author could not have asked a beta tester to help correct some mistakes and bugs of which there are many. This is certainly not an improvement over the original "Trapped". The music doesn't fit the atmosphere of a heist (The Cheers theme...) though it doesn't detract from anything particular.

Overall, this is not fit for playing.
