Spy vs. Spy is a video game developed by Take 2 interactive and based on the MAD Magazine's titular comic stip and cartoon craze of the 1960s. The game features the two spies ("Black" and "White") in a unique story mode, plus two other game modes ("Modern" and "Classic"), and a multiplayer mode for up to 4 players.

Game modesEdit

Story Mode Edit

In this single-player mode the player is able to choose between Black Spy or White Spy to complete a variety of missions filled with puzzles and a cast of enemies, including the enemy spy. (all of which are AI-controlled). The story has been developed to be like an extended episode of the '60s cartoon with a modern twist. The choice of spy does not matter - the player will still receive the same weapons and gadgets on either campaign. Likewise also, there are the same missions each way.

Modern/Classic Mode Edit

In these modes, 2 players are required (one player will be Black Spy, the other will be White Spy). The aim of these modes is to collect 5 artifacts from safes around the map before the other spy. The winner is the player who collects all 5 artifacts from the map and then escapes using the vehicle situated at a random location. This rule applies in both Modern and Classic modes - the only difference is that the Modern map is a tower block interior and the Classic map is more like the '60s cartoon.

Multiplayer Mode Edit

In this mode, two new coloured spies are introduced, Red and Blue. These spies are AI-controlled with 2 players or can be chosen in 3 or 4-player mode. This is basically a Deathmatch/Capture the Flag style game - kill all other spies and capture their bases to win. This is supposedly the first game with split screen multiplayer
