About This Game

Melissa lives an ideal life with her son Noah, but she's no ordinary mom. She was once one of the most sought-after cat burglars in the world. She's given up her life of crime and after living for years under a false identity, she took a trip to her hometown with her son. She thought it was safe. Things go wrong when Noah goes missing at the airport; Melissa's only clue is a phone call with a demand. It's been a long time but now she has one last job. With the help of her old friend Mouse, Melissa must find her son, his kidnapper and avoid the police radar. And she's going to have to crack a few safes along the way.

I Am Thoroughly Enjoying This Game Because I Have A Thing About Cracking Safe Locks...Even Though It's Clearly Not High Definition Graphics By Watching The Video, But You Push Past Comparing The Graphics And The Minor Faults This Is Actually A Perfect For Anyone With A Low Grapically Engineered PC Or Laptop That Wants To Play A Non-Fighting Relaxed Thinking Game. Maybe One Day There Will Be A 3D Version Of This Game. 10 Out Of 10 Brilliant Game!!!

Vault Cracker runs at 800x600 and feels as if 2001 came calling. It took me about 4 hours to play on advanced, using at most one hint per scene.

As a hidden object game, it is mediocre, with the genre's all too common collage of objects not constrained by scale, gravity, or even common sense. Vault cracking is very minor: you get 5 simple logic puzzles in all. The most intersting part of the game are the 5 minigames where you eliminate people from a picture based on given criteria such as "is eating" or "wears sandals" until only one is left. You also get 5 chances to dress your heroine up with hair, makeup, shirt, slacks or skirt, and shoes. The major part of your time is spent looking for hidden objects. Plot and voice acting are forgettable.

The game has 5 chapters; best to save when a chapter ends or begins, as otherwise there might be bugs, check the forum.

I'm a general gamer, not a hidden object fan, and I have played quite a few hidden object games that were better than this, such as ClockWork Tales: Of Glass and Ink, Paranormal State: Poison Springs or Isabella. There is no reason to buy this game, unless you have run out of other Hidden Object games to play and this one's on sale.

Boing game that never seems to get intresting, even the female voice actor sounds way too bored. 9/10 of the situations you need to find objects in a big room and this combined with not even a real engine (They use Adobe) makes it not worth the €5 (Not even the €2,49 i paid for it at the sale) €0,99 would be a buy.. trough

EDIT: There is not much Vault cracking either...
EDIT2: I don't know why my steam says "0 hours on record"

Lots of puzzles
Not expensive (If you get it on sale or with a coupon)
Difficulty choice at beginning

Game takes forever to quit (makes it ahrd to shut down Steam)
Low resolution graphics
Gets repetitive
Gender stereotypes
Game glitches (but they did not stop the gameplay)

Overall, an average example of a hidden object game.
