Secret Agent Clank is a platform game developed by High Impact Games for the PlayStation Portable and published by Sony. It was first released in North America on June 17, 2008. A PlayStation 2 version was ported by Sanzaru Games and was released on May 26, 2009 in North America and in Europe on June 19, 2009. The game is the first (and only) to feature Clank as the main character.
As the title suggests, the theme of the game is a spoof of the James Bond series, though it is technically based on the Secret Agent Clank element of Up Your Arsenal. To fit with the James Bond theme, Clank has an array of helpful gadgets and devices on his tuxedo, such as a bow tie that he can use as a boomerang, and a rose that turns into a carnivorous plant to devour enemies.
The game ia a spin-off and focuses on the adventures of Clank and his secret alter-ego, Secret Agent Clank.
The game begins with Clank going to the Boltaire Museum to halt the theft of a priceless jewel known as the "Eye of Infinity". Clank sees Ratchet fleeing the scene of the crime, who is arrested by local law enforcement. While retinal scans prove that the thief was Ratchet, Clank is convinced his friend is innocent. Clank investigates the theft further, traveling to various locales until he comes across an enigmatic figure known only as the "Kingpin". Clank eventually comes across one of the Kingpin's lairs and rescues a scientist, who informs him that the Kingpin intends to build a giant laser with the power to destroy the galaxy. The scientist then reveals that the Kingpin is heading to an abandoned space facility. The Kingpin later reveals himself to be none other than Klunk, Clank's evil doppelganger first introduced in Up Your Arsenal. It is revealed that Klunk was acting through Ratchet via a mind-control device hidden on Ratchet's helmet.
Klunk reveals he has stolen the Eye to use as a refractor for a massive laser system perfectly poised to destroy every planet in the galaxy. He plans to threaten to use the laser on a planet (using Ratchet) and have himself, posing as Clank, stop Ratchet from destroying the galaxy, placing the hero in jail forever while Klunk would be idolized by the populace.
Halfway through their battle, Klunk activates the laser. Clank knocks out Klunk and manages to deactivate the firing sequence while Captain Qwark accidentally beams himself aboard the satellite, retrieves the Eye, and is beamed out of the satellite just before it self-destructs. Ratchet is exonerated of the crimes filed against him. Klunk is placed in Ratchet's custody, being turned into a new vacuum cleaner to use in the apartment.
