- This guide is for the 1992 Apogee Software and 3D Realms MS-DOS game. For the 1989 Data East Corporation arcade game, see Sly Spy: Secret Agent.
The game is a basic tile-based sidescrolling platformer, based on the same engine as the slightly older Crystal Caves. The player takes control of the eponymous secret agent, known only as 006, and must make their way through 15 regular levels and a final fortress in each of the game's 3 (4 in the remaster) episodes. To do so, 006 can jump over hazards and dispatch enemies with limited ammo from his pistol. Each level is accessed from a world map and contains the same goals of destroying a radar dish and finding dynamite to blow up the exit door, with extra points being awarded for the many score items or making it through a level unscathed.
The HD remaster features largely the same gameplay as the original, although levels might have minor changes to make them more fair or ensure that all score items are obtainable. It also features a difficulty selection (which affects mostly health and ammo), adds an additional episode with a few new elements, and contains several optional achievements for the player to collect. A level editor is also included, with custom levels being shared online.
