CounterSpy is an indie stealth game developed by Dynamighty.
The game is inspired by the 60s style spy movies such as the James Bond series or The Man from U.N.K.L.E. Set in the Cold War, the player controls a spy that infiltrates the military bases of rival countries.
The game is a 2.5D side-scroller but the players are able to target their weapons in a three-dimensional space. The main objective is to prevent the enemy from launching nuclear missiles. The players have to be cautious as getting detected affects the DEFCON status of a country in which the player is at the moment. If the player gets detected too often, the country enforces DEFCON 1 and launches uses its nuclear weaponry. The players can abort the launch if they make it in time, which results in completion of the level.
Throughout the levels, the players can collect intelligence, which serves as an in-game currency. Intel is spent to buy ammo, upgrade your weapons or buy new ones.
