Released under the banner of Rovio Stars, this is a humorous point and click adventure that is played out in a story line format in a cartoon-like setting. The story revolves around the antics of a tiny thieving hero who sets out to right the wrongs of the medieval village. Like the great English hero Robinhood, tiny thief uses his clever wit to outsmart the sheriff and guards to help the downtrodden.
