Game Boy Color[edit]

Developed by Kemco in 1999. This version is considerably upgraded, featuring not 8 but 32 different floor plans, which must all be completed to see the final ending of the game. Features a password system in order to save your completion progress through each level. This version was released after a version of Spy vs. Spy for the regular (mono) Game Boy, which was actually based on one of the Spy vs. Spy sequels.

NES[edit]

Kemco bought the rights to convert and release this game on the Famicom, which they did on Apirl 26, 1986. They later released the game in the United States for the NES in October of 1988. This conversion was also distributed by Mattel in Australia in 1990. This version features a health bar for each of the spies that you can actually see and monitor during a battle. The bar automatically refills itself after a certain period of time without fighting has passed.

Sega Master System[edit]

Published by Sega in their card format in 1986. Later released on cartridge. This version features 16 stages as opposed to the original 8. Many of them are more complex, and some contain as many as four floors. (It is interesting to note that the artwork on the Japanese box art corresponds to the second Spy vs. Spy game, The Island Caper, as opposed to the original game contained on the cartridge.)
