SPY vs SPY is based on the original, multi-million unit selling, break out hit on the Commodore 64; Apple // series; and Atari 400/800 computers by First Star Software, Inc. It features online and local multiplayer matches, 16 new embassies (plus the original 8), and a pixel perfect retro mode as well as a modern mode, both with the famous black and white spies from MAD Magazine.
SPY vs SPY is the ultimate action/strategy game!
✪ Online + local multiplayer support – sabotage and intrigue included
✪ 16 brand new embassies – for a total of 24
✪ Play alone in custom matches for all 24 embassies, each with 5 levels of difficulty – you select the IQ of the opposing spy
HOW TO WIN:
Your mission: escape the embassy, top secret briefcase in hand. Remember, all else is but a mere distraction! You must locate and finally collect the missing passport, traveling money, key and secret plans before making your way to the airport door to board your plane – all before time runs out -all while placing booby-traps for your opponent, avoiding or defusing those set by him and engaging in club-to-club combat.
To avoid the fiendish traps left through your opposite number, you’ll be able to grab ‘remedies’ off the beaten track before exploring a thing. If that container carries a bomb within it, the bucket of water will diffuse it. If you load a filing cabinet with a spring, the next person to peek inside will probably be sent flying off and away to the far end from the screen, but if they consider the wire-cutters with them, the trap is going to be automatically diffused.
Unfortunately the control way is a little unforgiving, and you will occasionally be frustrated when you try to inch the right path towards an item you need to talk with, and then realise you are not quite close enough with it. In a frantic game of cat and mouse, this will quickly eliminate the enjoyment, particularly in the local and internet based multiplayer modes that are available.
