If the ACA Neogeo series of games has taught us anything, it was that the 2D fighter was king throughout the 1990s. But it wasn’t the only genre worth worrying about and today we see the addition of something a little different come out of the retro scene to try and wow Xbox One players. Ever wanted to become a super spy? Well, now’s your chance.

Available to purchase and download right now from the Xbox Store, ACA Neogeo Super Spy comes with the usual Neogeo price tag attached – that of £6.39 – as it brings us another chance to play through the original action title that was first released by SNK way back in 1990.

The fight is real in this one and you’ll need to make your way through this adventure, punching, kicking and firing off guns as you try to defeat waves of terrorists and save their captives. With an experience system in place from back in the day, and more modern features like leaderboards and difficulty settings included, if you’re looking for that next retro hit and fancy something a bit different from the usual fighters, you could do worse than give this a go.

The Xbox Store will happily give up a download should you be willing to give it a go.

Game Description:

THE SUPER SPY is an action game released by SNK in 1990. Punch, kick, and use guns to fight off terrorists as you make your way through the building to rescue their captives. Defeating enemies earns experience, which can be used in a Role Playing Game-like feature to level up. The “ACA NEOGEO” series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces. Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores. Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games. *This title is based off the MVS (NEOGEO for arcades) version. There may be differences between this version and the versions for the home NEOGEO console and other home consoles.
