  • Summary: A retro, pixel art style adventure in New York, inspired by ’80s cop shows. Stay vigilant and quick-witted but remember that if this won’t work, you can always do some old school jaw wrecking. It’s the ’80s after all.

    Much like the setting that inspires it, Beat Cop is crass, dirty and morally reprehensible at times. Though it certainly isn't for everybody, there is a certain attraction that Beat Cop exudes which has you coming back, time and again, to its grimly framed world of corrupt cops, jobsworth toil and pressure-based strategy.

    Beat Cop meets its quota by providing a few laughs and a fun experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome. The appropriate attention and care was given to the most important elements, but it doesn’t offer much else. The end result is a game with few lows, but similarly few standout moments to make it truly memorable.

    Beat Cop is a strong effort to create a compelling police-themed adventure. Patrolling your street and building relationships with various characters is engaging, and it certainly looks the part with nicely done pixel art visuals. Its open ended design can lead to multiple endings, which makes it surprisingly replayable, but in practice, it all quickly becomes a little too complex for its own good. With your attention so scattered among numerous calls to action, it can be confusing. Still, there is some fun to be found here if you don't sweat the details.

    Beat Cop is a relentless time management game where writing tickets and arresting perps is set against a background of sleaze and corruption.

    Beat Cop ist eine Zeitmaschine direkt ins New York der Achtziger – wo Ihr als fälschlich verurteilter Detective wieder ganz unten anfangt. AufBeat Cop ist eine Zeitmaschine direkt ins New York der Achtziger – wo Ihr als fälschlich verurteilter Detective wieder ganz unten anfangt. Auf Streife im Moloch von Brooklyn verteilt Ihr in der wuseligen Seitenansicht Strafzettel, verhaftet Ladendiebe oder pimpt Eure Ausdauer mit Donuts. Dabei wachsen parallel zum Fortschritt der gar nicht mal schlechten Crime-Story auch die Aufgaben. Aber Achtung: Um Punkt 18 Uhr ist Feierabend, und schafft Ihr Euer Pensum nicht, winken am Tagesende schlechte Wertungen und Ärger vom Chief. Neben der detailverliebten, immer zur Epoche passenden Pixeloptik und dem coolen Hip-Hop-und-Soul-Soundtrack punktet Beat Cop vor allem mit ganz viel Humor: Die schlüpfrigen Sprüche Eurer Kollegen auf der Wache etwa sorgen für Schmunzler, ein Babysitterjob für einen versoffenen, fetten Russen hingegen für echte Lacher. Schade nur, dass einige der späteren Puzzles und Minispiele mit Bugs und allzu strengen Zeitlimits frustrieren. Expand
