~~~~~ 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

“These features and the strategic gameplay make Spy vs. Spy a fantastic remake and expansion of a classic game. Now, if we could just remember where we put that furshlugginer bomb…” – slide to Play

“Come and play me in online multi-player.” – Alfred E. Neuman

How NOT to get a 5-star review… (4 stars)
…cut your app price in half on launch day hours after people have already purchased it. Other than that, this is a faithful update of the original without really adding anything new. I do appreciate the inclusion of the retro graphics and sound. That part is nice. If you loved the original, get this. Otherwise, be advised that it's a 28-year-old game. Boy do I feel old.

Erhmahgerd (5 stars)
This has to be one of the best games ever. It is so good that I even took the time to write a review (which I NEVER do for any game no matter what). It is so addicting that I'm literally up right now at 2:00 in the morning. I loved this when I was younger and I love it now. Though on the downside the controls are a little weird and it takes some getting used to but other than that it is the BEST game in history.

Game is great but (2 stars)
I like Spy vs Spy it reminds me of my past and gameplay is also good. But the controls. It really needs to be fixed. Truely annoying and ruining the game. Will give you 5 stars if you improve the control.
