Countdown to Danger: Deadly Heist, Countdown to Danger

30 dangerous paths. 30 minutes to escape. YOU choose the path to survive!

You are hanging out with your friend Kyle who makes a quick stop at the bank . . . only to find yourselves plunged into the middle of a high-stakes heist. But is it money that the robbers - Miss Scarlet, Mr. Sharp, Mr. Signet and Silver Tooth - are after? Or is there a larger, more sinister plot behind their takeover of the bank? And what do nanotechnology and a silver ninja have to do with anything? The latest installment of this choose-your-own-adventure series cranks up the adrenaline as you make split-second decisions and try to save the world! Choose wrong and risk being nibbled by nanobots, chopped by a helicopter or stomped by an artificial rhino. Or do you swing to freedom Tarzan-style, escape through a festering sewer, or partner with a clone of yourself and live to choose another day? YOU DECIDE!
