The Spy Who Shot Me Impressions

“The Spy Who Shot Me” is a first-person shooter (FPS) game that combines classic spy action with a touch of humor. Developed by independent game developer and publisher Retro Army Limited, the game pays homage to the spy genre while adding its unique flair.

In this game, I had to step into the shoes of a suave secret agent tasked with thwarting a global villain’s nefarious plans. The gameplay features a mix of espionage, gunfights, and gadgetry, offering a nostalgic nod to classic spy films. The Spy Who Shot Me excels in capturing the essence of iconic spy stories, providing players with an immersive experience filled with suspense and action.


What sets this game apart is its charming retro aesthetic, reminiscent of spy movies from the ’60s and ’70s. The graphics, music, and overall presentation contribute to an atmosphere that feels both familiar and refreshing. The Spy Who Shot Me embraces its lighthearted approach, infusing humor into the narrative and gameplay.

One notable aspect of the game is its clever use of spy gadgets. I had access to an array of imaginative tools, enhancing the gameplay experience. From hidden cameras to explosive cufflinks, the game encourages creativity and strategic thinking, allowing me to tackle missions in their unique style.

However, like any game, The Spy Who Shot Me isn’t without its criticisms. I had found that the controls were a bit clunky and the pacing was uneven at times. Additionally, while the humor adds charm, it might not resonate with everyone’s taste.


I would recommend The Spy Who Shot Me to fans of classic FPS games who appreciate a good dose of humor and spy-themed adventures. It’s a game that successfully combines nostalgia with modern gaming elements, making it an enjoyable experience for those looking for a break from more serious or realistic titles.

The Spy Who Shot Me is a delightful blend of retro aesthetics, spy intrigue, and comedic elements. Developed by Retro Army Limited, it offers a unique take on the first-person shooter genre, catering to those who enjoy a bit of nostalgia and a good laugh in their gaming experience. The Spy Who Shot Me is available now on Xbox, Steam, Nintendo Switch and Playstation. Thank you to Microsoft for sending over a code for impressions.
