―an excerpt from Call Log

Cog Thief is a Trolley game. It can be played by up to four Toons.

Origin[1]

Sir Max proposed the idea to create a game where robots try to steal gag barrels while Toons try to stop them by throwing pies. When he showed the Toon Council the budget needed to build said Trolley game, they instantly rejected the idea.

On his way to go find "public land" to build his Trolley game on, a Loony Labs scientist stops him and offers to manufacture the robots needed for the game. Once finished, Sir Max returned to the Toon Council and showed them the finished project, which they accepted and added to the Trolley, but stated that the game would be removed in the event of bad reviews.

Objective

The objective of the game is to throw pies to protect four gag barrels in the center of the arena from Cogs until the time runs out. If Toons lose all of the barrels, a message at the end will say "NO BARRELS SAVED." If they save at least one, they win and receive jellybeans. Cogs chase after Toons as well as try to steal the barrels. If caught, Toons will be launched in the air and land on the ground. A Cog only needs to be hit once to be destroyed.
