Description

The Green Goblin has set a super bomb at the top of a high voltage tower located on the top of a skyscaper! As Spider-Man, you need to scale the building and defuse the bomb. Use your web to climb the building, but be careful of Green Goblin's villians which appear in the windows trying to stop you. If your web line goes too close to a villian, it will be cut and Spider-Man will fall. If you're careful, you can swing back and forth to capture the villians for bonus points. When you reach the top of the building, it's time to climb up the high voltage tower which is booby trapped with bombs. The bombs can be defused or avoided to get to the top, but just make sure you aren't too close to one that explodes! Once you arrive at the top of the tower, Green Goblin himself will be protecting the super bomb he has planted there. If you can sneak past Green Goblin and defuse the super bomb, the level is complete and you then move on to the next, more challenging level.

Trivia

Parker Bros. developed an Odyssey² version of Spider-Man which was planned to be released by the same time as the Atari 2600 version. Nearly twenty years later a Dutch collector named Bas Kornalijnslijper bought a box of Odyssey² stuff with some EPROMs. Among them was a version of Spider-Man. Bas made some copies and released it in April, 9th 2006 at the Retro Computer Meeting in Schiedam (The Netherlands). You can read the full story at his website.
