Spy Vs. Spy / MagMax / Seicross retrospective: Espionage-à-trois | NES Works #090

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

More newcomers arrive on NES this episode, each bringing a musty conversion of an even older original work in tow. Kemco-Seika makes its NES debut with a two-year-old port of First Star Software's Spy Vs. Spy, which kinda-sorta puts a bow on the two-player trend of NES software by way of a competitive espionage adventure. Just as dated is the debut duology from Japanese dev Nihon Bussan, courtesy of our pals at FCI: Creaky console ports of arcade obscurities MagMax and Seicross. Not precisely the most inspiring games 1988 had to offer NES fans... Production note: NES footage captured from @Analogue Nt Mini. Video upscaled to 720 with @Retro Tink 5X.
