Eye Spy

(Americana, 1986)

Reviewed by neepheid

In this platform game you are a detective trying to solve a crime. You must navigate the rooms and avoid the enemies in order to open safes. Some of the safes contain a clue, and once you collect all eight clues and unlock the riddle, you can go to the courtroom and accuse the suspect. You have limited time and your energy is depleted by contact with enemies. The graphics are colourful but the sprites are a bit flickery. The sound is really good, with decent effects and a jaunty rendition of Johnny B. Goode playing continuously. Unfortunately the controls aren’t the best; jumping can be inaccurate and sometimes you can get stuck on or in the scenery. There are some unfair parts to the gameplay like unavoidable enemies. All in all, it’s not a bad game – it has its charms but the issues make it merely OK when it could have been better.
