TOP SECRET! CONFIDENTIAL! FOR YOUR EYES ONLY!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will require you infiltrate the D.V.S. secret hideout and steal the plans to the ultimate laser weapon, only known as “Red Rock Rover”. You are hereby granted a license to kill. The D.V.S. is a notorious terrorist organization and if they manage to complete the laser weapon, the fate of the world will be too horrible to contemplate. Make sure to visit our supplies chief, P, before you head out as you’ll need to disable a vast security system, bypass electric traps, and overcome a significant number of dangerous thugs such as ninjas, sharp-shooters, knife throwers, and even robotic sentries. One last thing, if you manage to eliminate the head of the D.V.S., there will be a bonus in your paycheck. This message will self-destruct in 6.5 seconds...6..5..4..3..2..1
Secret Agent is a classic full-screen scrolling game where you sneak around a huge map and enter various hideouts. In each unique hideout you’ll search for the laser blue prints, dodge deadly traps, solve puzzles, and blast the bad guys in this classic DOS-era run-and-jump platformer from Apogee!

Were the height of PC gaming back in the 8-bit era.
I must have spent hours/days playing this game, Duke Nuk'em, Kommander Keen and the others.
This is platform gaming at its finest.
The games are basic copies of themselves, with the same engine used for just about all of them, but that doesn't make it bad.
The humourous takes on classical spy memes are still there, and -read more assuming you like platformers - the controls are tight.
The game itself is a boatload of fun.
That said, back in the early 90's, this game was shareware with the full retail being somewhere around 3.99$... So pricing it at 5.99$ is a bit steep.

First of all, this game is sort of... difficult (no I mean it). Yet the controls are flawless which make playing this game a charm. Once you got used to it, it plays really nice and it is challenging all the time, so if you look for a nice platformer with cool looking graphics (yeah I call those graphics cool!) this is the right game (or better 3 right games since it has 3 parts that all play in the same way).

Secret Agent is a charming platformer. The level design is really well done with some fun items to collect and things to see. Some parts of the gameplay are somewhat dated. For example: shooting more advanced enemys makes them turn into completly different people before defeating them. Apart from some of those old technical work-arounds, this is still a fun game.
Most of us whoread more were playing shareware remember the first episode: "Hunt for the Red Rock Rover". It's nice to see the whole package on sale. Cheers gog!
