- Sega Master System
Arachnid aficionados arise!!! After months of sneak peeks, a certain web-slinging superhero has finally made it to the video game screen, and it's well worth the wait! Sega's Spider-man for the Genesis is a visually stunning and extremely challenging game that should please any hardcore gamer! So, grab your Web Shooters and swing on!
So Much to Do, So Little Time
The Kingpin has hidden a nuclear bomb somewhere within the city, but he's publicly accused our hero of planting it. Spider-Man must locate and diffuse the bomb before half the city ends up in the upper stratosphere. To diffuse the radioactive menace, Spider must collect the five keys that control the bomb's detonator. To protect his evil scheme, the Kingpin has hired a Spider-Man rogues gallery of arch-villains: Doctor Octopus, the Lizard, Electro, Sandman, the Hobgoblin, and Venom.
ProTip: Doc Ock can only harm you with his tentacles. Stay between his tentacles and use Doc's face as a speed bag!
As Spider-Man you must swing and punch your way through seven grueling levels, which cover such varied locales as an abandoned warehouse, the rat-infested city sewers, the city power plant, and the city park. Each level has its own distinctive enemies and challenges with a super villain waiting at the end. Oh, by the way, you only have 24 hours in which to make it all the way through, or all your efforts will have been for nothing! Hey, no one ever said the superhero biz was easy!
The Lizard can only attack with his tail. Use the Web Shield to force him into a corner and keep punching him until you take him out.
Swing above the toxic sewage waste which saps your life meter!
Continuously jumping covers more territory than simply walking or crawling. This saves Web Fluid and time.
It takes two hits to eliminate a rat.
"With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility"
Spider-Man was born when, as Peter Parker, he was accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider and became endowed with spider powers.
Use your Web Shield to force Electro into a corner. Make sure you're standing on a non-metal surface since Electro zaps mega currents through all metal. Stay low and hit him repeatedly with web shots.
As Spider you can stick to any surface, climb walls, and even sit upside down. This is an extremely useful ability, since most of your enemies are gravity-bound.
With the aid of your Web Shooters, you can swing across vast spaces and dangerous terrain, take out enemies from afar, or create an impenetrable Web Shield, which renders you momentarily invincible.
Use the Web Shield option whenever you venture into new, uncharted territory. It could provide you with the few seconds you need to duck out of sudden danger!
Your supply of Web Fluid is limited, so exercise extreme prudence when you use it. Creating Web Shields and swinging on web lines is the quickest way to eat up fluid, so use them only when it's absolutely necessary.
Spider-Man's alter ego, Peter Parker, is an ace photojournalist for the Daily Bugle. You have at least three opportunities to take pictures of the action on each level. Pictures of villains warrant high payments from the Bugle, which in turn enable you to buy more Web Fluid at the end of each level. What's amazing is that you actually take screen grabs of the action occurring onscreen the moment you snap the picture! You've got to see this to believe it!
You're awarded an extra photo shot every time you fully replenish your life meter.
Spider-Man can return home as Peter Parker to replenish his life meter, however, this move isn't recommended since the 24-hour clock runs down three times as fast in this mode. Spider is better off searching a level for hidden power-ups since returning home also returns you to the beginning of the level!
Super villain snapshots net the highest amount of money. Take them as soon as they appear.
Not all power-ups provide the same amount of energy for the life meter. Learn which ones are useful and which ones aren't!
A Faithful Adaptation
Comic book fans will be thrilled by Sega's faithful adaptation of the Spider-Man mythos. Spider looks, moves, and fights exactly as he does on the four-color newsprint page. The villains are all consistent with their comic book counterparts and the graphics are stunning! The eerie soundtrack is appealing, and the sound of the Web Shooters is just like the "THWPTT!" sound in the comics! You'll think that the comic book has come to life on your TV screen.
Simply put, Sega's Spider-Man is a visual feast and a challenging delight! It's various difficulty options make this game accessible to gamers of all skill levels. Spider-Man is fast, dynamic, and exciting, just as you'd expect. You'll go "buggy" over this game!
