- Spy vs spy -

Spy vs Spy is a puzzle game in which you play a spy (duh!) and you have to find four items that will open a door and will lead to your escape and victory. At the same time however another spy is in the same location trying to do exactly the same thing so you'll have to use your wits to outsmart him. The items you need to find are hidden somewhere on the level inside closets and behind paintings and such. You can use this to your advantage because you can set traps on all of these objects so that when your opponent searches them he will find a nasty surprise. You can use such things as bombs, electrical cords and acid but be carefull when placing them because if you forget where you placed them you can get hurt yourself. Sometimes, especially on the smaller levels, you will encounter the enemy spy and you can go into direct one-on-one combat and whoever looses will have to spend an amount of time waiting before he will be sent back into the game. There is no limit to the amount of times you can die and you can only loose if either the time runs out or if your opponent finds all four items and is able to find the door to the plane before you do.

Spy vs spy is a pretty fun puzzle game and is best played with two human players. The larger the level the longer the game and you can select from level 1-8 and the size of the field changes from 6 rooms to a maximum of 36. Setting the traps is especially fun and when your unknowning opponents sets off a trap you'll see an animation of his demise and your character shows an evil grin. The graphics themselves are purely functional and contain very little in the way of eyecandy but this does not have an impact on the enjoyability of the game. Even when played alone the game is pretty fun but played with another person this really rocks.

Overal rating: 8/10
