Spy vs. Spy infiltrates retailers
<i>Mad Magazine</i>'s sneaky sleuths duke it out on the Xbox; PS2 version sabotaged.
Global Star today announced that its action game Spy vs. Spy is now available for the Xbox. The game was developed by Vicious Cycle, the studio behind Robotech: Invasion.
Spy vs. Spy is based on the comic featured in the slapstick-humor-filled Mad Magazine. The comic follows the madcap adventures of two unnamed spies--one garbed in white, one in black. The hapless characters often lured each other into false senses of security before disposing of each other with oversized mallets and well-placed sticks of dynamite.
In the game, players will assume the role of a spy and attempt to outwit up to three opponents. Spread across the game's 12 levels will be various weapons, booby traps, and gadgets to help the spies take each other out.
The PlayStation 2 version, previously scheduled for a May release, has been canceled.
Spy vs. Spy is rated T for Teen and sells for $19.99. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
