Summary

The Swindle is a steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, hacking their systems, stealing all their cash, and quickly running away again before the police show up. London, 1849. Scotland Yard will soon activate its breakthrough surveillance technology, 'The Devil's Basilisk'. Its surveillance capabilities will be total and your career as a master thief will be over.

Steal it, before that can happen. From the safety of your rickety airship, you can modify your thief with new skills, tools, and all manner of technological horrors to tackle the richest and most secure buildings in London. All the buildings you’ll be robbing are randomly-generated, so you’ll never get the same level twice.

If Size Five Games can release some updates to maybe tweak the level generation and at least make you able to always collect £100 on the first day, I think it would improve the overall experience drastically. Until they do, the score will stay as it is but don’t let that deter you if you enjoy other games like Spelunky or even Mark of the Ninja. If that’s the case then The Swindle could quite possibly be just the game for you.

The Swindle is a game that many will end up playing for months to come. The gameplay is the perfect combination of stealth and action, and its difficulty, while brutal, is satisfying. Size Five Games, and publisher Curve Digital, have created an addictive game that needs to be played by anyone who loves a good challenge.

The Swindle is a solid game, but it's a swag bag short of our full recommendation. As a title to play over a weekend – or between other games with more substance – it can't really be knocked, but don't expect to be feeling light fingered forever. This is a cunning con, a solid swizz – but it's been robbed of crime of the century status.
