  • Summary: When you have a top-of-the-line hacking deck armed with a 56.6k modem and a staggering 256k RAM, it means just one thing: you answer only to the highest bidder.

    The latest from the creator of Gravity Bone and Atom Zombie Smasher is a weird and heartfelt espionage adventure you won't soon forget.

    Quadrilateral Cowboy is the perfect mix of cybercrime and cyberpunk, that trades in the darker, hard-edged aesthetic of Mr. Robot and Uplink for something that's infinitely more charming and endearing.

    If you like puzzles, it's a game you have to play. Clever, original and really well designed, Quadrilateral Cowboy is yet another proof of the talent of Bento Games.

    A game about conducting heists from behind a pc screen? It sure sounds mundane and complicated. Blendo Games though, have somehow managed to pull it off with ease in Quadrilateral Cowboy. They’ve put together a highly polished, surprisingly enjoyable product - one which every gamer should at least consider playing at some point.

    Just like Portal, although perhaps not quite as impactful, Blendo Games have come along and changed the way people perceive the environmental puzzler. It’s the finer details though that ultimately let it down; there’s never really a stress test of your skills, and you’re never confronted with a situation where you can use your entire arsenal to overcome the ultimate puzzle. Still, it looks great and, despite a degree wasted potential, plays great too.

    It might be too short and a bit clunky, but Blendo Games’ newest effort finds joy in the weird and wonderful retro-future world of 1980s coding.

    Compared to their previous creations, Blendo Games shows some promising progress. So far, they've mastered interactive introductions and tutorials. Still waiting for a full-fledged game, though.

    Building off of Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving, Blendo Games returns with their most ambitious game yet. While their last twoBuilding off of Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving, Blendo Games returns with their most ambitious game yet. While their last two efforts felt like interactive thrillers, Quadrilateral boasts impressive puzzle hacking/espionage gameplay while still retaining their signature superb storytelling. The entire experience is mind bending and definitely carves it's own path, on it's own rules. Buy it. Expand
