comment How to check if 4 points form a square?
Good idea, but you still need to check that the 4th vertex is at the right distance from the other points. You only check that it is on the diagonal.

comment Should I add an “Abstract” prefix to my abstract classes?
I tend to use ...Base for a base class behind an interface. The good name is already taken by the interface, and the base class isn't used anyway by client code.

@R. Martinho Fernandes The deep nesting is there even with multiple returns, it is just less obvious.
