None of it is particularly spy-like, but all of it is rather good fun. If you can forgive the painful multi-load (which took years off my young life), you'll have a lot of violence-related gameplay to look forward to.
Atari STThe Games Machine (UK)
Very close to the arcade original. In his black bow tie, white shirt and black trousers, Sly cute a suave figure amid the enemy ruffians. Sound is also impressive with a selection of tunes and sound effects that complement the ensuing mayhem.
AmigaThe Games Machine (UK)
Similar to the ST in almost all respects. Bond fans should purchase.
ZX SpectrumThe Games Machine (UK)
Although not as pretty as the 16-bit games, it is every bit as playable. All of the eight levels have been crammed in (no mean feat), and both character and background sprites are colourful, well drawn and smoothly animated. Spectrum owners, need not worry about the lack of good software - Ocean always come up with the goods.

Secret Agent is a hard-fought battle and takes quite a lot of beating. Lots of action and nice large graphics, but nothing startlingly new.
Commodore 64Commodore Force
This collection of gamestyles scores highly for variety, but no section has been given the individual thought required to make it much cop, it's graphically fine with some effective parallax, but unfortunately unchallenging, shallow gameplay and one of the most diabolical multiloads this side of Street Fighter 2 ensures it'll gather dust in attics all over the world.
Atari STRetrogaming History
In questa conversione del coin-op della Data East su Atari ST, i programmatori della Software Creations svolgono un buon lavoro sul profilo dell'estetica per poi, purtroppo, tirare i remi in barca con lo scarsamente ottimizzato coding che non consente a Sly Spy: Secret Agent di elevarsi rispetto alla media degli action games per questo home computer. Il porting di SS, infatti, è lento, scattoso, non esente da bug e poco reattivo nella risposta ai comandi. Il colpo di grazia al titolo Ocean lo dà, infine, la difficoltà: praticamente inesistente.

Oceans farbloser Spion langweilt sich nun auch auf dem Amiga durch neun kinderleichte Levels. Grafisch hat er nur wenig mehr zu bieten als auf dem ST, das Scrolling ist erwartungsgemäß sauberer, die Soundeffekte knackiger.

Heiliger Geheimauftrag, was für ein langweiliges Spiel. Grafisch präsentiert sich die Agentenmär zwar recht angenehm, spielerisch gehört "Sly Spy" jedoch auf James Bond's Abschußliste. Die erbärmliche Kollisionsabfrage erleichtert es dem Spieler auch nicht, den winzigen Kugeln, Harpunen und Wurfgeschossen auszuweichen. Trotzdem schafft man die meisten Levels beinahe mit verbundenen Augen und ein wenig Glück - dank dem Continue-Modus wurschtelt man sich schon irgendwie durch. Vorausgesetzt, das ständige Diskettengewechsel hat einen nicht schon vorher vom Joystick vertrieben.

Aufgabe des Spielers ist es, ein Land zu befreien, das vom Regime des "Konzils für die Beherrschung der Welt" belagert wird.
