A sequel to the 2013 arcade fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us by NetherRealm Studios, known for the latest Mortal Kombat games.

A platformer game with stealth elements, inspired by hard-boiled fiction.

While playing, we take on a number of robberies that we have to carefully plan before going on the mission. Since our thieves are far from killing machines, the key to success is to compose the team well so that characters of different abilities cooperate properly.
