Spy vs. Spy II: The Island Caper by First Star is
the second of the spy trilogy of games. It's very much
more of the same, but with better graphics. This time
the two spies do battle on a tropical island. The rules
are very much the same as in the original game, but with
different traps and landscapes. The aim is to collect
three pieces of a missile, put it together and then
escape the island. The graphics are very good and it
plays very well. It contains the same comic book
violence that featured in the original, which is great
fun to play against a friend or the computer opponent.
If you liked the first game then you will no doubt like
this game too.
Ah! What's that?
It's that cheeky
Oooo... what's that
"Well hello there"

decides to follow the fun...

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played it a few times to get a feel of what to do
before tackling the computer opponent on the hardest
skill level. Once all parts of the missile were
constructed, I searched for the exit - which in this
game is a submarine located just off the shore.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The end sequence shows the victorious spy climbing onto
the submarine while chuckling to himself. In James Bond
style, a glamorous lady appears from the submarine hatch
and kisses the spy on the cheek. They both climb down
into the submarine before it submerges into the ocean
and zooms away from the island.
