Synopsis: Oh, man do I love this game. As being one of the first NES games I downloaded, I spent hours playing this one. You’re controlling this guy with brownish red hair and pants and a brown jacket. The only enemies in the game are these evil men dressed in black who shoot at you with little to no accuracy.
But you hero can not only shoot back, but he can also jump and kick them in mid air! Wow! At first I thought the way to beat levels was to just make it to the last floor, but I was wrong. DEAD wrong.
You see, after I play an NES game for about an hour, I search on the internet for the instrution manual in text. Five minutes later and I found it. But as I was reading the short tiny 4 page manual, I found that I had not been beating levels at all. You see as your going down the many elevators there are doors on both sides of you. Mostly blue and sometimes a red. The object of the game is not just to get the last floor. You also have to enter the red doors! For the guy with brownish red hair your controlling is not a common man. He just happens to be super-sleuth Agent number 17. Code name: Otto. And when you enter the red doors, he's gathering secret government documents that will help put these evil men in black suits in the slammer for a long time. 'Cause those evil men in black suits, they’re not normal men either. They’re security guards! Too bad they don't have the potbellies that most security guards have. Back to the game, if you don’t enter any of the red doors, the game will be so easy that Ray Charles could beat it while singing those Pepsi commercials he used to do. If you enter just one red door, prepare for one of the most hardest, longest NES games you'll ever play. The first thing you'll notice that’s different is the guards. They start off like they don't even have a weapon, but after you grab the secret info, they all change their weapons into HK-5's or some other weapon that fires rapidly. Second thing, at first the stupid guards don't even know how to use the elevators correctly; usually falling and dieing while waiting for the elevator to come to their level. Sometimes they would even get stuck under it and be crushed to death, which is very cool to watch. After you obtain the info, they get so good using the elevators. It's almost like fighting Psycho Mantis from Metal Gear Solid: they know what button your going to press. They can follow you any where you go and will hunt you down to pump hundreds of bullets into you. Like many other NES games, you buy the farm after being shot once. On to game play!

Otto controls very responsively. No pressing a button and wondering why won't it work.
Here's where it gets bad. Graphics are some of the worst I've seen on the NES. Super Mario Brothers looked better. And the elevators are PINK for cryin’ out loud!
It plays the same song over and over again, but it doesn’t get annoying.
The idea of the game was just awesome to me. Being a Secret Agent going up and down elevators while sometimes entering red doors. Wheee!

Download this one right away! It may take a little time to get used to, but you'll love it once you do. The only thing that could have made it a 9 would be if it had ninjas. Hiya!!
