Commodore Computing International (Mar, 1985)
As an adventure game, Spider-Man keeps you moving along corridors, into a bevy of different rooms each of which hold a surprise. Responses also feature touches that set this game apart, including full sentence interpreter and clever replies like, "I must be stupid, but I just don't understand what you mean." The text is challenging but still encourages you to move further along (mainly because there are lots of chances to go wrong, so you see a lot without getting very far). Graphics fulfill our expectations of high quality from Adventure International, though you have to perform a few tricks to actually make your hero appear. The 3D effects are particularly good in small spaces such as an elevator shaft, and extensive use of bright colours in detailed drawings makes characters such as Lizard all the more vivid.

Scott is pretty impressed with the comic idea itself. "Adventure players are going to start reading comics again... it'll be more fun if you read the comics, but it will not be any easier," says Adams. On the plus side the graphics are brilliant and lose nothing in the transition from comic book to computer screen. But it takes more than a pretty picture. Can't see this rivaling the rest of Scott's output. Check the Hulk if you want a real Marvel adventure.
