DescriptionThe second Questprobe adventure moves on from the 'verb noun' command interface of The Hulk and allows fuller sentence inputs. The in-game graphics also see some degree of advancement. You play Spider-Man, Peter Parker's crime-fighting alter-ego, as he takes on Mysterio, who can block out Parker's Spidery senses using his canisters of poison.
As in The Hulk, the Examiner plays a key part in the game, as he initially strips Spider-Man's knowledge and prepares him for the battle. Throughout the game you meet many familiar Marvel characters, using the clues in the provided guidebook to help you deal with these situations correctly.
- "Spiderman" -- Alternate spelling
- "Questprobe featuring Spider-Man" -- In-game title

TriviaThe game's documentation says that it will not run with any DOS version higher than 2.10.
To get the game to run under windows 95, you'll need to do a little hacking. With a hex editor, change the two bytes in the main exe file from "??" at offset AEA4 and AEA5 to "52"
It appears that the original game code was calling a very old DOS open file function that supported wildcards in the filename. It was trying to open the file "SPL52.DAT" using "SPL??.DAT" as a parameter.
Since there is only 1 SPLxx.DAT file used in the game, hard coding the ??'s to 52 works just fine!
