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.
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 realise you are tougher than you look, SWAT will be incoming. Eventually, they bring in the turret.
You don't have to go at it alone. With the gang by your side, you have a higher chance at 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 opportunites, 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 bigger score? Chances are someone in your crew has just the mission you need to prepare.
The newest features and improvements have been outlined below.
The story of A-Star Theft has been finalized.
Forty missions tell the story of Logan Huntborn and his crew,
while also offering interesting scenarios to complete.
The main menu has been significantly improved.
It has gotten a new color scheme matching an overall change in aesthetic, more animations and details,
as well as a new music track.
The Overview Mode is an essential part of the game. While active, you get a zoomed out view of the map, allowing you to plan out your moves.
New features for Overview Mode include icons for points of interest, such as fire alarms,
circuit boxes and camera guards, and the ability to place custom markers.
It also shows the level of police aggression, which will increase or decrease depending on how you play.
You can also read a short description of the mission, in case you missed the dialog leading up to it.
The game now features several new music tracks, which goes beyond double the amount of the last update.
Every track now has three different versions, changing depending on your play style.
Stealth, Intimidation, and Action. Each of them with a different atmosphere to set the mood.
More sound effects have been added. For example when tying civilians, killing enemies, and using Power Killers.
I have a lot of ideas planned for A-Star Theft.
Despite the game being released, it will continue to get updates in the future.
New features implemented since release:
- Freeplay: create your own character and play through more heists and challenges.
- New equipment: Take advantage toxic gas, noise emitters, thermite and liquid nitrogen.
- New security: Some buildings are now fitted with high-tech security
Here are a few ideas already in development:
- New enemies: Dogs, drones, and bomb squads, along with others, have been mapped out.
-Multiplayer: Play together with friends in both cooperative and competitive game modes.
