ready to challenge Arsène Lupin, the gentleman thief. Lupin, a character

Lupin, a young French burglar with an impressive track record, has just
challenged Scotland Yard and the most famous of detectives - Sherlock Holmes.

value over the course of five days. The objects are housed in highly prestigious
locations such as the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Tower of London
and even Buckingham Palace! Sherlock Holmes will have to muster all his courage
and ingenuity to save England from terrible humiliation.

game's 3D engine. With famous places and some of the most prestigious landmarks
as your playing field, it is as if you are on your own guided tour of one of

surprises leaves you breathless, take a break and enjoy looking at the hundreds
of works of art, all faithfully reproduced in their real locations.
