Pick 'n' Pocket is an arcade platformer game featuring cute woodland creatures out to steal whatever they can get their greedy paws on.

Use items, your reflexes and your wits to gather as much swag as possible before time runs out. Once you've plundered the area for as many valuables as you can hold, run back safely to your base or risk losing it all and starting again empty handed. The more swag you have in tow once you get back to your base, the more points you're rewarded. Watch out though, the more you carry, the slower you get and the harder it becomes to avoid those who want their stuff back. Do you get as much as possible and risk getting caught? Or do you play it safe and pick small amounts at a time?

Pick 'n' Pocket features a single and local multiplayer mode so you can try to beat your own high score or go head-to-head with a friend and see who the better thief is.
