This version of Spy vs Spy is actually a remake of the 1984 game originally released for the Commodore 64, among other consoles, which went on to sell by the millions. Calling it just a “remake” wouldn’t be fair, though. The iOS rendition will feature the original game and the ability to play the initial eight levels in the original 8-bit graphics, but along with an HD makeover, players will also have access to an additional 16 levels, online and local multiplayer, leaderbords, Achievements and more.

I freakin' loved playing the original on the C-64, and then loved the sequels set on the deserted island and in the arctic.  of course a lot of the fun was playing it split screen and trying to pay attention to what my opponent was doing while keeping track of where I was.

I have to say I didn't care for this.  I was a big fan of the original,  but to me, something feels off.

It may be that it's a little awkward lining up your spy with objects or that picking up or dropping an item is indicated a little too subtly or that the animations when traps go off or are diffused are lame. 

Mostly I think I was just expecting more.

I'm only out a buck, I guess, but yeah, I'm regretting my purchase.  The controls are really clunky.

Two app purchases in the last two days, and two stinkers to add to my growing list.

It's not the deepest app and the controls aren't flawless, but I wouldn't call it a stinker.
