New Doctor Who: An Unlikely Heist Game Now Available on Apple Arcade

Tilting Point, a leading global publisher of free-to-play games, in partnership with BBC Studios and developer Whaleapp LTD, have launched a new Doctor Who game: An Unlikely Heist, and it’s available now on Apple Arcade!

The narrative involves Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor and her longest-running companion, Yasmin Khan (played on TV by Mandip Gill) racing to solve the problem of rifts in time. An Unlikely Heist requires players to fix these time rifts – a dangerous weakness in space and time through which people and objects can pass from one location and time to another. With a unique original story, players will help the Thirteenth Doctor and Yaz fix the rifts by solving mini-games, collecting objects to complete critical missions, and uncover hidden puzzles.

Check out the trailer:

The title includes:

  • An original narrative: Each area begins with an entirely new and rich story that will evolve as players help the Thirteenth Doctor fix time rifts.
  • Puzzles: Players will explore unique areas and solve riddling puzzles in order to obtain objects needed to progress through the story.
  • Mini games: Once players acquire the necessary objects in a given mission, they’ll have to solve distinct puzzles in order to complete the mission and fix the time-rift.
  • Plenty of exciting events: Players will encounter different events each week offering competitive time-limited challenges with unique rewards.

An Unlikely Heist is the newest game in Tilting Point’s portfolio, featuring some of the world’s most recognizable licensed IP from leading entertainment companies. In 2021 they partnered with Whaleapp, a leading global games developer with some of the most popular puzzle titles on mobile, to publish Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery.

It’s nice that, in Doctor Who‘s 60th anniversary year, and with Jodie so recently leaving the franchise, we’re still getting new Thirteenth Doctor content at least.

An Unlikely Heist is available only on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
