Hi,


When I was very young, me and a cousin used to frequent a store in town. They had an arcade game where you were a spy. Your mission was to avoid and/or shoot other spies and make it to an elevator at the top (or possibly the sides) of the screen. It would show all kinds of hilarious stuff while in the elevator animated break in. As I remember it also was a very hard game in some respects. I was just wondering if anyone could name it? I would very much like to see if there was a version I can play at home.

Hi,


Thanks, unfortunately this one also took place on a black background. It looked like Robotron graphicswise until you got in the elevator. I need to find a good place for Arcade pics and stuff and just try to remember it. Thanks for the url. I will check on there and let you know if I find it :)

Very very close but no lava pits... the object was kinda like to hide behind walls and stuff and avoid all spies if you could. It also may have been a little more detailed then that one.

The game was called Super Spy? If so that is for neogeo mvs and is a fake fps right? Where you walk side to side and fight people?

Ok,



Stupid question of the week. What emulator can I play Cloak and Dagger with on PC and if possible on DC. I want to see if that is it. I Can't find screen shots for bonanaza brothers. So I am not sure. I know it isn't Spy vs Spy I have tried those .The one it looked most like is Cloak and Dagger. This was when I was like 6 or 8 lol.

Hi,


Ok, Narcissus gets the correct answer. It is in fact Cloak and Dagger. That game rules. Even after all these years I still get a kick out of those animations :twisted: Thanks guys for all the help.



Btw, does anyone know if the DC ports of MAME would work well with this game? Ice88 just did a new one so I may try that one. Just wondered. Thanks again :)
