New York, more like a beast than a city. Explore it’s darkest corners and uncover its secrets as Jack Kelly, a former detective who has been framed for a murder. Degraded and forgotten by old pals, it’s your last chance to find the truth behind this whole terrible mess. The thing is, your new boss treats you like shit, your wife is a money sucking spawn from hell and the local mafia wants your head on a plate. I guess you could say, that things are complicated down here, in the middle of Brooklyn. Oh, and don't forget about writing tickets, reprimanding pedestrians & such. You're a beat cop after all.
Nonlinear story with multiple endings
Someone framed you and no one gives a rat’s ass about this but you. Turn every stone in this city and find out who did that. The further you investigate the more missing puzzles you’ll find, but be careful. Some things should never be brought to daylight.
The essence of 80’s cop shows
Have you ever dreamed of being one of the heroes of cop movies? Of course you did, like we all. Now you have a chance. Be sexier than Sonny Crocket and tougher than Dirty Harry. And if witty comebacks won’t work, you can always do some old school ass kicking. It’s 80’s after all!
The humour that your mom wouldn’t approve
Be sarcastic. Be gloom. Be whatever you want. There are thousands of things in this world you can laugh at, and even more you shouldn’t, but who cares. It’s jungle out there baby, and sometimes you just need something to release the stress.

Beat Cop is an interesting experience, you can beat the game without moving forward with the storyline. Although my plan is to finish the game again this time getting the best possible ending for a change. And as for the endings, there are at least a few of them, judging from what happens at the end of the game. Beat Cop is a production that absolutely deserves a place on the shelf. And it deserves basically every praise. Give it a go.
This game screams late 80s/early 90s Sierra/Lucasart adventure point and click classic. Graphics are excellent, sound is fitting and puzzles are perfect, not too easy, but also not too hard, maybe with some small exceptions. What really shines in this game is the humour, this game is funny straight to the end. However, it has the same downsides like Sierra/Lucasart games had back in the day, and that is difficulty. In some games from good old days, time management was important, and if you did something too late, like for example in Gold Rush, it was game over for you and it wasn't fast but in the late game, same with Codename Iceman, Here, it is the same, you have pretty strict time limit, and while it is nice it has multiple endings, the problem is that you don't have much time to play around. Another Issue with this game are the gamebreaking bugs, like some events locking for whatever reason other than time limit, making your whole progress grind to a halt and you either were smart and saved often or you man up and face the consequences and restart from the beginning. It is really brutal and that's why it is kind of hard to recommend this game. It has almost everything in place and at the same, it is all worthless because of gamebreaking bugs that prevent progression to the other part of the game. Overall, great humor, full of references to cop shows, great soundtrack and graphics, but bugs are a gamble. If you miss old Sierra/Lucasart, look no further and pick it up now, you won't regret it. However, if you're into light hearted adventure game, you might consider waiting for a sale, because this game can get hard and really stressful.
You can easily tell a lot of effort was put into the pixel art, because it looks absolutely stunning. The story is great and there are numerous endings you can achieve, which helps to increase the replay value. As advertised, it has the feel of 80's cop shows and the atmosphere created by the story and humour definitely reflects this. This game is dark, gritty, and worth your time.
