I was hoping to see a dark color option available with the B/W Switch or something... but this package is so attractive I think Ill be ordering it anyway.

 

"Black" or regular edition, this game is great. :thumbsup:   You won't be disappointed.  The label variations are cool, but one of my favs is Arenafoot's text label:  http://atariage.com/...ight/?p=3610419

There were only 10 "Black Editions" to be had (with the Gold label)


Thats really cool. However, I was referring to dark colors in the game. So if I get tired of playing it in black n white, I could flip the switch and play in color. When I get tired of the color variation, flip the switch to go back to the noir black n white. Its cool regardless, but yeah, I was hoping for a color option via B/W switch or even game select switch.

It takes place at night so the black and white makes sense. It would be hard to come up with a color scheme that would look right. Or did you just want a splash of color?

oh....sorry misunderstood - thought you were referring to the "Black Version"

I havent played around with colors on this to see what might look good. That splash of blue in your pic is cool tho. Ive been away for a while and should be getting back home by Tues night, so if I think of it, I could play around in photoshop with the color palette and see if anything looks right... not that anything could/would be changed now, but just to satisfy my curiosity.

One thing I do know about 2600 colors though: a lot of them arent that dark even at their darkest. Ex: F0 will just look more red on real hardware and a lot of tvs.

I love this game. I recently got a Portable, and I've put this on my SD card. I absolutely love the concept, and it ends up looking nice as well! ;)

Some stage and screen indicator would have been good. When I died the first time I wasn't sure if the game was over (so I hit reset) and how close I am to clearing a stage.

Keep an eye on the lighthouse. It starts on the right side of the screen, as you get closer to it you will see that it moves towards the left side of the screen.

The game is over when you run out of time, getting shot just takes away some time by making you start back at the beginning of the screen.

I see, thanks. Though it still doesn't tell you the stage number, right?

 

And I figured out the second part though it was just my first time feeling when i played the game. Didn't read the other posts at first and the first post mentioned lives.

unlimited lives because you are racing against the clock - the game is over when you run out of time before hitting the detonator and the title screen with your score at the bottom shows up

 

as far as knowing what level you are on.... you can see from my upcoming book - 10k pts per completed level and 100 pts per completed screen, so if you want to figure out where you were at the end of the game, your score will tell you based on these numbers

On Twitch stream Moonbeam Arcade they often play Spies in the Night. 

 

Yesterday the did: 4-8-2018

 

The live streams can be watched after airing on Twitch or YouTube. They expire on Twitch, but should persist on YT.
