I have to admit, I’ve been sitting on this bit of news for a day now and still I could not contain the excitement I felt when I found out that one of my favorite childhood games has resurfaced. Mad Magazine’s Spy vs. Spy has been released on the iOS and it seems that More Than Robots and Pencils Inc. has redone the game for the new generation.
Based on the screenshots and game description, this version of Spy vs. Spy retains the old gameboy gameplay (actually the site mentions of the Commodore 64 release, but spy vs. spy came out on the GB as well, which I played immensely) while re imaging the black and white spies into their new generation looks. Speaking of retaining the game, the Retro Mode feature of Spy vs. Spy revisits the old ver. of the game in all it’s pixelized glory. The game also has the online multiplayer mode where you can go against other players over the internet.
For more info you can visit the Spy vs. Spy iTunes page. The game is currently on sale on the iTunes App Store at $.99
