Spy vs. Spy initially started out as a comic strip back in 1961 for Mad Magazine, written by Antonia Prohias, then later made for numerous game consoles in the mid to late 1980s. The strip/game features two spies - White Spy and Black Spy - who always try to one-up each other using various booby traps. The 1988 NES release is probably the most well known of all of the various releases, which feature the two spies going through 8 embassy levels, getting a suitcase and 4 items, and then escaping on an airplane, leaving the other spy to a terrible fate. Snicker.

In 2006 I finished this run.
But it was deemed too boring for this site.
I posted these on YouTube just for fun.
And everybody said that they were alright.

And there these videos sat for 3 years.
Looking for a little love and respect.
But none was had there. All there were was tears.
It's such a rare game - what did I expect?

But TASVideos we are not!
And this is a very lame excuse for
Rejecting this run. Alas, a weak spot;
Let's see that rejector to the far door!

Watch these 8 levels, praised in sonnet form.
And enjoy the laughter; that is the norm.
