A short entry for what is a very early and different looking Spy vs Spy 2 game, found thanks to FREEZE64’s Vinny Mainolfi.

The game was reviewed in Commodore User issue 23, August 1985, and sported screenshots showing a very different score panel and interestingly no characters in the game.

The lack of characters in the screenshots suggest that the screens could well have been early mock ups that were provided to the magazine. Oddly the trees are also purple as well! Did the magazine review a preview, or did the magazine just lazily use the preview screens.

Of course, the game was finished and released, so seeing anything of this early preview would be a huge bonus for curiosity purposes and to see just how much was tweaked/changed.
