Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 5

Saying “spoilers” before I post another of these videos is probably redundant at this stage. Well, whatever. Spoilers!


Heist 5: 3 minutes and 37 seconds, $1,165 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

This one came out really really well, I think 🙂 Didn’t make any glaring mistakes or do anything all that stupid.

Here’s the description I posted over at YouTube:

This one worked out quite well, I think – in fact, it’s probably the smoothest Trilby level I’ve posted so far! One little problem was reading the note about the safe – I collected all the loot before the note finished displaying, which stopped the explanation text from appearing and as a result, I didn’t know where to look for the first book! Not a serious problem, but a shame nonetheless.

I think this was probably my favourite level during my first playthrough of the game. I love the premise (the idea of Trilby raising a bit of cash to flee town), and the level has lots of neat little touches – like the bit with the caviar, and the jokes with the different books. I also loved the structure of the level – there are lots of little things to do in it, and you don’t necessarily have to do everything. In this video I’d actually finished the loot goal by the time I got the suitcase in the room with the TV, and if I’d been going for best time I could have finished the level there and then.

I keep forgetting that I have the sugar rush ability, heh.

Enjoy! It might be a few days before I have a chance to post the next one…
