Johnny Turbo's Arcade returns next week with another beloved Data East classic up for grabs on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Johnny Turbo's Arcade: Sly Spy drops into service on 3rd May (priced $6.99 in the US), bringing along nine levels of playful variety that wooed arcade goers and those who were lucky enough to pick up Ocean's home computer conversions back in 1989.

In the year of 19XX, President Ronnie was having a nice stroll with his family when his caravan was intercepted by the Council for World Domination, a bunch of jet pack-wearing terrorists! Only one man can possibly be up for this task: the spy named Sly! Are you a bad enough secret agent to rescue the president?


The game features a 'Golden Gun', a boss possessing inhuman strength and another of diminutive stature that attacks by throwing his hat around. We can't quite figure why all of this sounds terribly familiar...

Any memories of this Data East homage to MI6's finest among our veteran readers? Share your thoughts with us below...
