Beat Cop Torrent

Beat Cop Torrent is a simulation game developed by Pixel Crow and published by 11 Bit Studios. There is something about Beat Cop that captivates you. It is a fusion of point-and-click mystery with the energetic action of time management games, set in the familiar universe of 80s TV cop shows, complete with the casual biases and prejudices that we are led to believe characterized those times. The game kicks off with a message from the developers expressing their fondness for US 80s procedural police dramas and suggesting that players should simply enjoy themselves.

Not an unreasonable suggestion, but it would be negligent of me not to acknowledge that without the benefit of a formally structured narrative and character development where subtlety for the repetitive biased language used can be allowed to expand, we are left with jarring text lines continuously blurted out by the various inhabitants and visitors to the streets of your beat. And no one group is exempt either; the language encompasses all the unfavorable stereotypes you can imagine. Derogatory slang terms for Italians, Chinese, Russians, women, clergy, and street gangs are regularly, and with no context, appearing on your screen as you patrol your beat.

Beat Cop Torrent Magnet is a reasonably engaging title. You assume the role of down-on-his-luck Officer Jack Kelly, a former police detective who has been demoted to a beat cop after a poorly explained introduction involving a Senator, some diamonds, and a murder. Throughout the 21 days over which Beat Cop unfolds, you need to prove your innocence, balance rising tensions between the Mob and Crewmembers that inhabit your beat, make alimony payments, and apprehend “perps” – all while meeting your parking ticket obligations.

Each day is a bewildering assortment of busy work with constant demands on your time. A vehicle used in a crime has been spotted on your street; find it and report it, but don’t forget those ticket requirements; otherwise, your measly $50 pay will be docked. There’s plenty of stuff that can be missed too.

Beat Cop Torrent is an unsettling game to play, as the relentless time management required, the monotony of each day, and the unnecessary offensive language dampen things a little, but it is also an intriguing game in that the frenetic nature of it is quite compelling. It’s a shame that the overarching story doesn’t quite do its job of keeping you completely invested, and I do think that there is a missed opportunity to make a more persuasive point about the choices you are forced to make to keep every stakeholder in your activities happy, but overall it’s not a bad way to spend some time, provided you can shut yourself off to the unnecessary prejudice.
