each and similar character designs.
Peter Parker is attending a demonstration of the reformed Dr. Otto Octavius's
new invention when an imposter
Spider-Man steals the device. Spider-Man must work to clear his name
and uncover the sinister motives behind the
This game features appearances not only by most major Spider-Man characters,
but cameos by numerous other
characters from the Marvel Universe, such as the Human Torch, Punisher,
Daredevil and Captain America.
Spider-Man's webs are greatly emphasized. He can use them both for navigational
purposes, like swinging or
ziplining, and for offensive and defensive combat, such as tying up a villain,
coating his fists with web for extra
oomph, or building a protective shield. His web supply is limited though
and he must find new cartridges or risk
running out. The wall-crawling powers are also prominently features.
Spider-Man can cling to any wall or ceiling.
This is used for basic environmental navigation and for stealth as there are
many sequences where you crawl over
the heads of unsuspecting thugs, or drop down and catch them off-guard.
Combat is based around Spider-Man's ability to jump, kick, punch and web.
By combining these with direction and in
various combinations, Spider-Man is able to throw objects such as furniture,
hurl web balls, yank enemies into
melee range and follow up with a flurry of hits, among other things.
There are a number of boss-battles as well,
all of which are puzzle-based.
Missions vary from the fairly common fight-your way-to-the-goal or
find-the-key-that-unlocks-the-door types to
races to catch some or evade them or just trying to avoid the police.
There are several side goals in addition the main mission including multiple
unlockable Spider-Man costumes and
numerous hidden comic book covers to find.
