Agents! - multiplatform multiplayer Spy-vs-Spy fun by Chillingo/Clickgamer(due 25/11)

First of all - no...this is not another dualstick shooter and there are no zombies involved. Sorry.
In fact Agents! is no shooter at all but will nevertheless provide enough action.
So what's this game about? In my course of resampling lost classics (dont miss the Lemming's like Age of Tribes) I thought it would be a nice idea in doing a game similar to Spy-vs-Spy...which I really liked back in the 80's/90's. Are you old enough to remember this classic? No? Then please checkout this site.

The basic concept behind Agents! is to search the rooms of a building for some secret documents. Of course you are not alone. Another Agent (from the other...the bad side ) is looking for the documents as well. In Agents! the opponent will be a NPC (single player mode) or another player (multipayer). When encountering the other guy its up to you: run or fight. Several weapons (with limited ammo you have to find first) will make this task good fun.

Thanks to Crystal the game will contain leaderboards, achiements and even challenges.

As if this wasn't enough - Agents! comes with a complete 1 vs 1 multiplayer mode using WLAN! A OSX port of Agents! - available in the new Mac appStore - will allow multiplatform multiplayer. Fight against your friends on Mac and/or iPhone/iPad!

Oh, and did I mentioned that Agents! is an universal app with native support for ALL devices and ALL resolutions?

This thread is for keeping you informed about the progress of development. I will update this post with new art and the latest screenshots from time to time. (click into an image for HD resolution)

LOL... Spy vs Spy was the first to come in my mind, too...

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Thought I share from time to time some progress updates with you. Currenty I'm working on the GUI - I want a very clean and intuitive HUD. Less is more.
The minimap is included too (remember: this will be multiplayer fun). What do you think?

Beside of that my 2D artist is working on several graphics (like the player portraits) and a unique soundtrack is in the works as well.

Cheers, Axel

Yes, but you have to find the ammo first for the "funny" weapons.

will having the pause button in the lower right of the screen make it too easy to hit accidentally?
