Spider-Man is a side-scrolling action game developed by Western Technologies and published by Acclaim and LJN in 1995, incorporating elements from the critically acclaimed 1990s Spider-Man cartoon series. The game was released for the Genesis and the Super NES. The two versions of the game have the same basic story but have gameplay, level, and enemy differences.
The game is a side-scrolling action platformer. The game features six levels in the SNES version: a Laboratory, Construction Zone, Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, a showdown in J. Jonah Jameson's Penthouse, and Ravencroft Asylum, and five in the Genesis version: Laboratory, Coney Island and the Funhouse, The Deconstruction Zone, The Mean Streets of the City, and The Ravencroft Prison for the Insane.
The story is about four of Spider-Man's enemies escaping from Ravencroft prison: Dr. Octopus, The Green Goblin, Alistair Smythe, and the Alien Spider Slayer. It's up to Spider-Man to stop them before they wreck New York City.
You can control this game easily by using the keyboard of your PC (see the table next to the game). However, for maximum gaming enjoyment, we strongly recommend using a USB gamepad that you simply plug into the USB port of your computer.
