Released with the original on the Hi TEC label, this game continues the adventures of the Black and White MAD agents.

As in SVS, The island Caper is a 3D split screen affair, over a six-screen island. The trapulator now caters for coconut bombs, pits and the like. Other hazards include quicksand, from which you can escape by spinning round (?) and sharks, which adore Spy Sushi.

If the graphics were dodgy in SVS, they're downright atrocious in the sequel. The spies are less blocky than before, but the scenery is a mess of colour clash. I thought that the tape had corrupted when I loaded it, and the situation isn't made any better by the dire scrolling, which somehow crawls and jerks simultaneously.

The game is impossible to play. The confusing graphics and slowness make for a pitiful piece of software.
