Play as a spy from C.O.U.N.T.E.R. agency as two superpowers face off against each other in a plot to destroy the moon. In this stealthy 2D action side-scroller, which blends in 3D cover based shooting, the counter agent must sabotage the dastardly plans of the superpowers in order to maintain world peace. CounterSpy combines spy mythology and bold aesthetics of the 1950’s and 1960’s and is set during the Cold War.

A good stealth game with a mix between 2D and 3D Gameplay. Its arts are lovely, but is far too short and has a lack of depth.

An entertaining stealth platformer. There's some visibility issues in certain situations, though. [Nov 2014]

I don’t like stealth games, because I find most of them boring. I launched CounterSpy just because its visuals caught my eye, but I put the controller away only after I saved the world. [Nov 2014, p.60]

Unlike a good spy, however, it flubs its final execution. [Nov 2014, p.116]

A fantastic action platformer that hits the mark. The game strikes a wonderful balance between action and stealth with its unique cover mechanic. The style and tone of the game pay a wonderful tribute to classic spy movies, and it is a thrill to play.

Flaws in gameplay and storyline are compensated by the great skill of designers who have managed to deliver the spirit of spy adventure. Each level reminds the satirical Cold War Museum, whose exhibits can be examined for hours, and even angular character models do not spoil the experience. Of course, CounterSpy cannot boast of Evil Genius’ madness or No One Lives Forever’ charm, but it definitely shows the romance of the sixties. [Oct 2014, p.90]

All too often you'll be screwed not by stealth slip-ups, but by twitchy, inconsistent AI and the odd clipping glitch. If you can handle that, then this is pretty damn fun. [Nov 2014, p.78]

Hampered by inconsistency and a lack of depth, CounterSpy ends up being painfully average, though it does at least have some good ideas, particularly its player-controlled campaign pacing. [Issue#248, p.70]
