We’ve played a test for Operation: Tango, the super-spy game by Clever Plays, and we’re eager to explain why co-op players should add it to their wish list.

I’ve been a fan of spy action films as a young child. I was a fan of every adaptation of the Fleming novels that revolved around the life of a British secret agent for intelligence in addition, No One Lives Forever by Monolith Productions was one of my top games of the beginning of the 1990s. There aren’t many titles with this kind of setting which is why the work of Clever Plays been able to gain my trust in the beginning.
Operation: Tango is a spy action game that has a look that reminds of games such as Vigilante 8, Evil Genius, and maybe even Valorant. The game features modern Low Poly visuals , with atmospheric lighting and beautiful environments. Simple and easy to use – exactly what you require to play with your friend even if your computer is far ahead of yours, or reverse.
Then, Clever Plays has also included classic spy romance in its original concept, including mood-shifting music, ’70s-inspired fashion and comic book-style insertions about the secret agents.
The agent is now playing an apparently simple mini-game, creating an outline for the moving dot to appear on screen as a hacker in first person races across digitally small panels. He asks his companion to be fast enough to not accidentally turn his character into a brain-buster.
Every puzzle requires audio communication because players will see different pictures and possess an element of information that which the other doesn’t. Similar to games of imagination and intuition players will explain to one another what they see before them, and then work together to determine the best way to deal with it.
The game leaves a positive impression. My friend and I felt an almost physical pain when the demo ended abruptly after the initial playthrough. We’re hoping that the game’s designers will be generous with their content and provide us with a wider variety of puzzles and games as well as different types.
At the moment, Operation: Tango looks extremely promising. If Clever Plays can maintain the momentum it gained in the initial mission, we’ll get an excellent asymmetrical puzzle game that can be played by two players.
