SPY Fox 2: "Some Assembly Required" is a kid's adventure game for the Windows and Macintosh operating systems. It was developed by Humongous Entertainment and first released in 1998 in Australia. It was released in North America in 1999. In 2006, it was redistributed as a digital download on GameTap's website.
"Some Assembly Required" is the second game in the SPY Fox series and is a sequel to SPY Fox in "Dry Cereal". The game follows SPY Fox as he attempts to stop Napoleon LeRoach from destroying the World's Fair.
The freedom of the world is once again in peril as the Spy Corps must call on their trusty envoy, SPY Fox to neutralize a plot engineered by the Society of Meaningless Evil, Larceny, Lying and Yelling (S.M.E.L.L.Y.)
The Giant Evil Dogbot, a villainous weapon, is masquerading as a statue at the World’s Fair. The Dogbot's collar cleverly holds the Chateau LeRoach, a revolving restaurant where SPY Fox will find Napoleon LeRoach, mastermind of a plan for revenge, dining. LeRoach has held a grudge against the population of his world for a long time, ever since he was denied entry to the World's Fair because of his insufficient height. With the entry of each fairgoer, the turnstile winds-up the Giant Evil Dogbot’s gears. SPY Fox needs to track down the activation code and OFF switch. Then, before the millionth customer moves through the turnstile, SPY Fox needs to slip through the Achilles’ heel of the evil Dogbot by sneaking past the breath analyzer to install the OFF switch and set the activation code. Having done so, he must then activate the OFF switch and if possible, get to the bonus ending where he can trick LeRoach into entering prison through its sewer pipes.
To get into Chateau LeRoach, SPY Fox must use the correct I.D. to sneak past the friendly, yet not so intelligent guard of the restaurant. Luckily, SPY Corps Mobile Command has Professor Quack's latest invention: a false I.D. maker. SPY Fox can insert a tweaked picture of him into the I.D. maker and print out an I.D. to show to the guard. Finally, SPY Fox can meet up with LeRoach. LeRoach (after explaining his evil plot to SPY Fox in nauseating detail) will trap SPY Fox in the mouth of the Dogbot. Using the right gears, SPY Fox can easily unwind the Dogbot's tooth that is blocking the ladder down. After a quick message from Monkey Penny, SPY Fox must then locate where the OFF switch is, (cleverly hidden somewhere in the World's Fair) find the OFF code and a way to get in. Depending on the game path, SPY Fox will use a variety of gadgets to locate each of these things.
Basic gameplay involves simply clicking on things to have SPY Fox interact with the world. The player advances by solving puzzles, talking with people and obtaining the required item to move forward. There are also an array of gadgets provided by Professor Quack that can help SPY Fox on his way, some of which include Spy Skates, Spy Key Replicator and Alarm Deactivator.
