~~~~~ And the critics love it! ~~~~~
"Robots & Pencils have done a great job bringing a classic game over to iOS and fans of the original will be able to jump right back in the action with fresh visuals that only add to the original experience. For those players, it`s a game that really lends itself to the pick-up and play style, and quick levels make it perfect for gaming on the go. The tutorial also makes it easy for someone who`s never played Spy vs Spy to get started, laying out the details without taking too long. Overall, the game looks and plays great and anyone ready for a new iOS game to sink their teeth into should definitely check it out later this summer." - MTV Geek!
"If you fancy yourself a burgeoning sneak, this is the game for you" - theverge.com - The most promising iPhone and iPad releases for July 26, 2012
""For retroheads, this new iOS version looks set to bring back some warm and fuzzy memories, as - while it may sport upgraded graphics and new touch controls - it`s effectively the same game you remember bashing away at on your C64 or ZX Spectrum." - Pocket Gamer
"Come and play me in online multi-player." - Alfred E. Neuman

For all of you out there who gave this game 1 star and saying the games too hard and boring. You`re obviously impatient. Once you understand how to play, the game is totally fun and totally worth a dollar. Seriously. I would recommend this game, so if you feel the game isn`t fair, don`t immediately demand a refund. Just give the game a chance and try to learn it.
It`s survival of the meanest!
Seriously, you need to be the biggest douchbag to ever walk the face of the planet in order to win against you`re rival in hard mode.
The three tricks are;
1. After successfully winning a fight against the rival, wait until his soul is close to disappearing and set the clock bomb in the room and retreat, when he appears again, the bomb detonates and kills him, rinse and start over until his time runs out. That way, you can simply wander around the stage and collect all the items without you`re enemy pursuing you to make up for the lack of time left to do so.
2. Hide an item in a room without any counter tool storages (scissors and umbrellas), wait for the rival to enter the room and then barricade the doors with water buckets (or cable pistols, but those take longer to set up) on the doors, you`re enemy will have no choice but to activate the traps. Don`t forget to add a bomb or a spring in the furniture hiding the item if the room is absent of plier kits and/or blue bucket bins.
3. If you fined the airport exit in one of the rooms, just sit there and wait for the rival to put up through the dirty work finding all the supplies. Just before he reaches the door, set up the clock bomb and then wait for him to enter. Right when he enters, retreat into another room. As he looks for the suitcase he dropped, enter back in and exit out as quickly as you can, repeat this risk until the bomb detonates, killing you`re rival, then quickly grab the suitcase in the room and exit the airport door (If the both of you get killed, you`ll have to race against you`re rival to the same room).
I loved this on the old Commodore 64 and I love it on iOS. The retro mode looks and sounds just like the C64 version. I forgot just how much I loved Spy vs. Spy`s music, too! The controls work well for me.
