Spy's Demise is a 1983 computer game published by Penguin Software. It was originally written for the Apple II by Alan Zeldin and ported to the Atari, Commodore 64, TI-99/4A, and Vector-06c.

The first level of Spy's Demise consists of twelve floors. The player must cross the series of floors, one at a time, while avoiding seven elevators at varying positions. Being hit by an elevator results in loss of a life. Finishing all floors starts the next level. Floors are gradually removed from level to level making it more difficult for the player to avoid the elevators.

The game's music consisted of a looped, 8-bit rendition of Hungarian Dance #5 in G Minor.

A clone of Spy's Demise was printed in ANALOG Computing magazine as Elevator Repairman, and another clone was Elevator by David Bayliss for MS-DOS.

Reception[edit]

In 1984 Softline readers named the game the eighth-worst Atari program of 1983, tied with Gwendolyn.[1]
