Bentley's Hackpack

Sony’s not going third-party, but it sure doesn’t seem to care about putting its wares on mobile platforms at the minute. Following in the hurried footsteps of endless runner Ratchet & Clank: Before the Nexus and match three adventure Knack’s Quest, the platform holder has now tossed Sly Cooper spin-off Bentley’s Hackpack onto iOS and Android devices.

Those of you with a reasonable memory will recall the minigame compilation launching on the PlayStation 3 and Vita around the same time as its full console counterpart, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. The compilation of simple shooting galleries and Marble Madness-esque arcade action can be downloaded for free irrespective of operating system.

The platform holder clearly sees these giveaways as a good opportunity to advertise its brands, so we wonder if this means that we’ll be reading from the Thievius Raccoonus again soon. Speculation suggests that developer Sanzaru Games may be busying itself with some kind of sequel to last year’s follow-up, especially as it performed surprisingly well at retail.
