Excerpt: Spy vs. Spy was actually born in an American comic around 40 years ago; it’s a piece of trivia that we only picked up recently. We do have fond memories of the 8-bit game though, whether it was the Commodore 64 version or the Spectrum version, we just cannot remember, but we do have memories of it being quite a good laugh. Now to the remake. Spy vs. Spy is a silly title, be it a book, movie, comic strip or game, but there’s plenty of logic in this title.
Excerpt: Now this is a tough one to call. The original Spy vs. Spy for the NES was one of the finest games on the system, in my opinion. Taken from the MAD strip of the same name, the game saw you pitting the White Spy against the Black Spy (or vice versa) and trying to beat the opponent to the punch by utilising a whole load of booby traps and insane weapons to stop them in their spying. Nineteen years later, the pair are back for more of the same.
