There's not a legitimate Sly Cooper game on Android yet, but you can get a tiny bit closer with a new game from Sony. Bentley's Hackpack is a collection of three minigames that originally launched last year on PSN alongside Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for PS3 and Vita. Now you can get these minigames on Android.

Bentley's Hackpack is free to download with a few levels of all three games, which are stylized as arcade machines. These are essentially more complicated versions of the hacking minigames from the Sly Cooper title. Here are the three main game modes:

  • Spark Runner: navigate an electric spark through each course, collecting pickups as you go.
  • Alter Ego: fly through maze-like stages and let rip in this classic side-scrolling shooter.
  • System Cracker: collect items and destroy enemies as you steer your tank to each docking gate

After each free level, the game offers you the option to unlock the full version of all three minigames (60 levels in total) for $2.99. There are also some additional unlockables and extra mingames – or maybe those are mini-minigames. I don't know. There's a lot of stuff, is the point here.

    While the Google Play store says the "This app is incompatible with all of your devices.", it actually means that it's region-restricted.

    Google should really update that initial verbage. :P

  • OmniWrench

    Actually looks to be slightly more than region restrictions, it's compatible with my 2012 Nexus 7, but not my Nexus 4...

  • Rizera

    Not compatible with my Nexus 5. Maybe region issue?

  • Matthew Fry

    I love Sly Cooper. Not compatible with my One but is with my N10.

  • Jeffrey Michaud

    Either has super restrictive compatibility or its not available in Canada

    I actually downloaded this app on my Nexus 7.2 and it worked. I was excited until i had to unlock every game in order to play. (Its not Free)

    • Tíghearnán Carroll

      God forbid you have to pay for a game (!)

      • tocsin

        Amen

        • Marcus Allen

          What's the point of listing a game as free if all the content is restricted till after you pay. I'm just saying its misleading, you don't have to be a dick about it.

    GOOGLE YOU PISS ME OFF "This app is incompatible with all of your devices.", it actually means that it's region-restricted. GOOGLE YOU PISS ME OFF

    Even this game's current average user rating on the Play Store is a little better than Sonic Racing Transformed's, despite the comments about compatibility and availability issues posted here.
