Hold the Mustard was the last spin-off game to the Spy Fox series and the only one that features a villian who doesn't appear in the main series trilogy. The plot is about a mustard company CEO named King Konglomo(yes he is a parody to King Kong) who is fed up that cosumers are preferring ketchup over mustard. So he crafts a crazy plan to rid of the world's supply of tomatoes so that way consumers will have no choice but to choose mustard for their burgers, hot dogs, pretzels, etc. Word of the scheme is notified to Spy Fox who is aided by Quack & Monkeypenny to stop King Konglomo's insane plan. By piloting a hoverpod called the M.E.S.S., Spy Fox must go on a global quest to destroy all of King Konglomo's robot probes that are stealing all of the tomatoes. Like the Cheese Chase game, it's an arcade style game except instead of it being a rail shooter it's a free roaming style game. In each level you control the M.E.S.S. and must destroy as many robot probes as possible in order to proceed to the next level. Most levels are challenging when the number of robot probes becomes overwhelming. While certain levels are easy when the objective is not to destroy the robots but instead destroy a control center that is controlling them. There are various power up items that can help you out for a limited time. If you played the Cheese Chase game, then you'll know what to expect with this game. The game play is very fun, and highly recommended for anyone who likes Spy fox or the Humongous games in general.

This is not a good game. What was going on in HE's heads when they made this game. I cant bear to play it which really bums me out.


The controls are nice but the ship you ride in is slower than a turtle.
You basically try to get to the end continously filling up your fuel from these humongous nearly missable Spy Corp fuel tanks.
This game is a Mess. I should have figured it out after the main vehicle you drive in was called the M.E.S.S.
The story is just wierd.
This gorrila doesn't like that everyone uses Ketchup so he sends out some Robot Monkeys to crush all the tomatos. Why you ask. So everyone buys Mustard. Fantastic Plan.
It's them trying to make another Cheese Chase and then utterly failing at every single aspect. If you are buying this with all the other games in the Spy Fox pack it's technically not a ripoff. But if you attempt to purchase this on your own you're gonna have a bad time.

While Cheese Chase, was fun and the gameplay was variable. Hold The Mustard just throws some basic bull ♥♥♥♥ out for you to take in. This game is not worth it.

All other Spy Fox games are fantastic, this one is ♥♥♥♥.

There is not even a Quit Button!

You have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then use Task Manager to shut the ♥♥♥♥♥ down.

Don't buy this game on it's own. WIth the pack. Yeah Alright. But never touch this game on its own. And if you just heard of The Spy Fox series start with the triology first please and then move onto Cheese Chase. Then see if this abomdniation tickles your fancy. Which I assure you it most likely will not.

This is just... a really basic, empty shmup. The map is big, the ship speed is slow, the mouse controls are awkward. Couldn't stomach this one for very long either :T

it is true that i only played 10 mintes of this game accuding to steam but iv plaerd more like 15 hours by doing the fowlling.

mac os x 10.10: go to go hold alt tune clack labaty. clack appucsen support, steam, steam apps/ comman tune find spyfox hold the misterd.

windows xp and above: c hard drave, tune progrum files x86 ( 64-bit only), steam, steam apps and comman find the game there.

i don't why i am seeing so mush negive reviews for this game, shere it is not moving awend for buildings, cool robites, dinding chamels. like in spyfox dry cetle.
the thing is spy fox 1, 2 exspilly 3 is way too tough, for a regler 6 year old. my yinger sister he is becoming 7 this may. always play spyfox hold the misterd, becuse it is easy to follew by moving your mouse and hit this green portles. sure your sorp bing distred is not ideo, but it thises kids to be peshahrd.

i thick of games like this is a stapping stone for kids without this game my ynger sister lilly, will naver to fruddy fish or even putt-putt without thoshing disoplen.
I Mysalf don't hit this game it is my last fivaite humonggers enterment. for boing game play, even just shoting stuff.

for thise negitve hitters out thoew i'm soo sorry, that you might not care about good kids games, that this company disives.

I'm not really a fan of this Spy Fox game, I mean don't get me wrong I love the Spy Fox games but this one isn't all that fun! actually it's quite boring if you ask me! it's not really the type of game that I would want to sit and play for hours! I remembered the Spy Fox games being a bit more fun and I remembered being able to walk around rather then just flying around shooting at robots. Its not that fun, but if you don't mind just sitting there doing just that and ever level being pretty much the same then, this maybe the game you want but I thought it would be a bit more then just that but I guess I was wrong! there's money that I can't get back from this.

As in Multiple Environment SPY Ship).
