Full Version - Super Gem Thief

In Super Gem Thief, the player will collect gems in maze-like dungeons while avoiding goblins. Once all of the gems on a level are collected, a portal opens, which the player must search for in order to get to the next level. All of this must be accomplished while a timer ticks down the seconds left to accomplish the task. The Mac version features improved shaders for more realistic looking game objects and effects, adjustable graphics settings, choice of virtually any resolution your Mac is capable of, and keyboard and mouse movement controls.

In Super Gem Thief, the player will collect gems in maze-like dungeons while avoiding goblins. Once all of the gems on a level are collected, a portal opens, which the player must search for in order to get to the next level. All of this must be accomplished while a timer ticks down the seconds left to accomplish the task. The game features full 3D graphics and a two thumbstick control system similar to the Xbox 360 or PS3. A free Lite version with three full levels and a paid version with 20+ levels will be released in Q1 of 2012. The title is targeted for release on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4G, with followup releases planned on Mac OS and PC. The Lite version will also be available for play through any web-browser from the games website.
The iOS version of Super Gem Thief (SGT) is nearing release. The full version will contain 20 levels with multiple types of goblins, including goblin mages, traps, and maze-like dungeons to explore - find all of the gems in time to open the portal and advance to the next level.
