Description of App

Fourteen years ago, a crazy audio game with a kid running around in Santa's factory to steal toys for himself was released. It has become one of the most
classic and iconic audio games people think about during the holidays. After a much-anticipated wait, version 2.0 is here.

Play as Naughty Mcnaughterson as you dash through Santa's workshop picking up toy after toy. But, it's not that easy. Use sounds to guide you as you collect
toys while dodging security elves, and after enough time has elapsed, you'll have to deal with Santa himself.

Version 2.0 boasts all new features. Post your scores to our all-new regional leaderboards. Do you live in Australia? Take on all your pals from down under.
Live in the EU? No problem, you and all your European pals can compete together. There is plenty of regional fun for all.

If you played old versions of the game, you will remember that having to escape from Santa was as simple as running to the same exit repeatedly. Not anymore.
Now you'll need to use strategy, nerves of steel, and a bit of luck to escape. did we mention he's much scarier too? He might even have a surprise or two
up his sleeves. He has sleeves, right?

If you like all sorts of numbers and statistical stuff, then version 2.0 has you covered. Track statistics such as wins, losses, steps taken and much more.
You can even export your stats to a txt file that you can email to your friends or post on Facebook or even your favorite forums.

For the true collector, The Great Toy Robbery contains 100 achievements. Some are simple to unlock, and others will make you think. Even others might be
based on pure chance. Think you can get all 100?

And if that's not enough for you, I�ve got one, more, thing. The Great Toy Robbery is the first LWorks title that you can install straight to your mac.
No more bootcamp or virtualizing, just grab and go. That's right. This is the first LWorks title that is truly cross-platform. Now more gamers than ever
can enjoy this fun and challenging game.

And in case it wasn't mentioned yet? The game is 100 percent free!

Other Comments

Any time is a good time for a new audiogame for the mac, but it is qruly special to see a true classic make its way onto the mac. The good thing is that any games written in Python are cross-platform, so most all games that Liam creates with Python will work on the mac. So keep them on your radar!

I'm going to grab it now. Thank you so much for making this game available for Mac users. I take my hat off to developers who make their games cross platform. I have played a lot of your titles under Windows and I hope more of them will become available for the Mac in the future.

Just downloaded this and played a round. I only got 34 points, which apparently isn't quite enough for bragging rights. But the audio is very nice. I remember playing this in Windows, but only briefly due to problems with my computers. Thanks Liam for porting this awesome game to the Mac.

Go to System Preferences>Accessibility>Speech and select a new default system voice. The game will use that voice. Adjusting the rate slider on that screen should also increase the speech rate in the game.
