A-Star Theft allows the player to execute heists with a wide variety of methods. Sneak or shoot your way to the loot using specialized equipment tailored to each strategy. Play as Logan Huntborn, and fight to keep your crew safe and free after getting offered a deal.
Players can choose to take the violent route. To run and gun, stay behind cover, or even blow a hole in the wall for fast entry, that is up to you. The important part is to get the loot and get out as fast as possible, or you will need to face an aggressive police force head on.
The stealthy option offers the player more control over the situation. Make your own entrance by cutting open a window, or dress up as a guard to fool your enemies. Disable cameras and metal detectors, and subdue anyone who hears you drilling open the vault.
No matter how you play, controlling civilians is a vital part of a heist. Tie them up to make sure they don't call the police, or if it's too late, use them to decrease police aggression and get a human shield.
You can even kill one of them just to make a statement.
When encountering a locked door, players have the option to pick the lock silently, or to drill the door open. What option is best for you depends on the situation.
Drilling open a vault door requires you to pay attention to the drill. Make sure it doesn't overheat or the building may catch on fire.
Most places have plenty of guards the keep the buildings secure. If they spot you, the police will arrive at the scene. When they realize you are tougher than you look, SWAT will be incoming. And eventually they bring in the turret.
Then there are the rival gangs to consider. These enemies appear on certain missions and usually carry more powerful weapons than the police.
You don't have to go at it alone. With the gang by your side, you have a higher chance of success. Tell them what needs to be done and they do it. Whether it involves shooting anyone they see, or keeping an eye on the civilians while you collect the loot.
A-Star Theft is designed to accommodate your playstyle. The game offers a wide variety of choices and opportunities, and some strategies may not be very obvious at first.
The weapons store provides you with any equipment you may need, for any strategy you choose.
It ranges from high power assault weapons and explosives, to silent glass cutters and cable ties.
A-Star Theft offers freedom in level selection. Don't feel ready for a tougher score? Chances are someone in your crew has just the mission you need to prepare.
