Operation: Tango (2020)

Have you always dreamed of being a spy? Not one of those spies who are ‘’stealthily’’ armed with bazookas and machine guns, but a real spy who furtively enters buildings without leaving a trace behind.

If so, you’ll love Operation: Tango, a game exclusively played in co-op mode. You’ll need to team up with a friend to complete a series of missions. One of you will be the spy on the ground, while the other will be the hacker, the person on the computer who will guide the agent through their mission by hacking cameras and other computer terminals.

Playing a game of Operation: Tango feels somewhat like going through an escape room with one of your buddies; you’ll need to collaborate, solve riddles and puzzles, and do it quickly before you get caught and time runs out.

The catch? You don’t see what your friend sees on their screens! So, of course, you’ll need to be quick and witty, but most importantly, you’ll need to communicate efficiently to succeed in this mission… should you choose to accept it.
