Review # 1 for hireintelligence Level up training system.
Them's Fightin' Words
    The game starts with you (SpyJim) infiltrating E.V.I.L. industries to steal the top secret "Babe Magnet" unfortunately you are interrupted during this mission by ninjas, which you have to fight. When you return to base, you are given another mission in Venice and our game begins...
Good intro, tells you all you need to know about the game without being far too long, long boring intros put me off playing a game faster than anything else.

Graphics
    Ok graphics, not extremely detailed but not terrible, good to see the producer didn't get bored and just use the same graphics more than once. Some decorative map tiles most likely would have improved the game a bit.  
Storyline
    Good original ideas, a bit repetitive but you can't really help that in this sort of game. A bit short but thats probably because it's just the first of the SpyJim series. The story line stays on track and in theme throughout the whole game.  
Gameplay
    Challanging gameplay with a great unique levelling system, could only be improved by repeated training still being benificial and perhaps animated training board or something else to make it more exciting.
I like the way that different training will give you different special moves.
 
  Battle
    Challanging but not impossible, no random encounters here, npc touch battles all the way, and I'm glad to see it.
Perhaps a few more different sorts of enemy wouldn't hurt.

 
  Map Design
    Alright map design, maze-type board isn't very difficult. Get's the job done even thought there is room for improvement with most maps.  
  Balance
    Well balanced, not too many or too few baddies in any of the boards. Perhaps some more inevitable battles on the final board couldn't hurt.
OK overall balance.
 
Music
    Cannot comment due to unworking soundcard.  
Enjoyment
    Very enjoyable, funny, keeps you wanting more. Not the usual "toilet humour" and if thats what you're looking for then this isn't your kettle of fish.  
Final Blows
    In conclusion I would like to encourage you to download this game if you want to see how plotscriping can be used well, e.g. alternateable party, or just want to play an enjoyable half hour game.
clever plotscripting allows you to alternate parties

Eagerly awaiting spyjim2
I advise anyone reading this to download and play post-haste if you're interested in a good original humourous role-playing game. And by game I mean game.
