No more ninjas, samurai, or other sword slashers, please. Thankfully, in the latest from Acquire (whose output of action romps set in ye olde Japan rivals the Tom Clancy series in pure quantity), you're none of the above. Instead, you're a washed-up old thief named Ebizo, who comes out of retirement to steal baubles from no-good magistrates to pay for his sick daughter's medicine.
So, it's Thief with a bunch of bathrobes? Well, yes, actually, right down to the way you can throw stones around to distract guardsmen's attention. But a few stealthy features set it apart from other hide-and-seekers--townspeople give you cover if Ebizo returns the riches a la Robin Hood, and his wanted posters start to look more accurate every time he flubs his cover in front of a group of witnesses.
