Operation: Tango is an espionage-themed cooperative adventure where two people play as agent or hacker. The agent explores the world while the hacker provides information and checks out the systems you encounter. You must communicate clearly to work together and solve each puzzle.

As you progress you infiltrate, investigate, and eradicate enemy forces. You work tandem from two different points of view with only your voice to link you. Teamwork is crucial, and communication is key. The game uses the discrepancy of each player's different access to the world to create authentic espionage challenges.

From a high-speed chase, to a late night office break-in, you work through exotic locations full of classic James Bond spy moments. There are a range of technological toys to help you on your way and each mission features unique challenges, keeping you and your partner on your toes.
