New Spy vs. Spy game in development

The black and white comic strip characters of Mad magazine are returning to video games soon in a new title from WB Games and Robots & Pencils.

Antonio Prohías created the characters in 1961, and the iconic spies entered the video games space two decades later on a number of systems, including the Commodore 64. The effort came from First Star Software, whose logo can be seen on the promotional image teasing the upcoming game.

The other company shown is Robots & Pencils, which develops games for iPhone and iPad. Could the new Spy vs. Spy be coming to iOS? Will it be another port, a remake, or something else entirely?
