Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Both ''I Spy Spooky Night'' and ''I Spy Treasure Hunt'' had a more linear structure to their theme and both books even had a loose plot with the former focused on trekking through a haunted house while the latter was about lost pirate treasure in a seaside town. Some of the author's notes in the backs of both those books implied that I Spy would go in a more "story-oriented" direction with their themes from that point on, but Spooky Night and Treasure Hunt were the last two books released in the original lineup with every book since then simply being compilations of art from the previous books with new riddles instead.

** The portrait level of ''Treasure Hunt'' has a man being EatenAlive by a shark... which is one of the objects to be clicked.

* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Surprisingly faithful adaptations to the picture books and quite addictive to boot.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatOneLevel: Expect everyone to groan in dismay at the magnifying glass levels. They will ''always'' show up at least once a game, and because the object size accommodates for the increased visibility through the lens, everything is shrunk to microscopic levels making it a complete needle-in-a-haystack search. While the BlackoutBasement levels aren't a walk in the park either, the objects at least remain the usual size and your usual field of play isn't technically increased any like it is with the magnifying glass.

!!The 2002 film:
*CompleteMonster:
**[[LoveInterestTraitor Rachel Wright]] is a [[RogueAgent corrupt agent]] of the Bureau of National Security. During her mission to retrieve the Switchblade, a highly advanced, undetectable prototype stealth fighter, she was bribed by Arnold Gundars to give him the activation code of the plane and thwart her colleagues. After [[FakingTheDead faking her death]], she reveals to Gundars the location of the other BNS agents, causing him to send his henchmen to dispose of them. When fellow BNS agent Alex Scott finds the Switchblade, Rachel captures him and tortures him to make him reveal the new activation codes of the plane, knowing full well it will allow Gundars's terrorist customer Zhu Tam to nuke Washington, D.C. When more BNS agents arrive, Rachel takes the opportunity to fatally shoot Gundars and Tam InTheBack in order to steal the access to all the bank accounts. Cruel, manipulative and sadistic, [[ItsAllAboutMe Rachel]] has ultimately no loyalty to anyone but herself, and is willing to do the worst things as long as it benefits her.
