DescriptionThe Kingpin is framing Spider-Man for planting a bomb in New York City. Spider-Man only has 24 hours to find the keys that will let him disarm the bomb and clear his name.
The game consists of eleven stages including boss fights and bomb defusal. The game has a counter that continually counts down until the bomb will explode. After the second stage, Spider-Man is given the option to exit a stage at anytime to return home and recover his health, but doing so will cost him precious time and he will have to restart the stage from the beginning again. Spider-Man must search through each stage thoroughly as the boss of the stage will only appear when all the humanoid enemies are defeated.
Spider-man can punch, kick, jump, and can also fire a webshot that will temporarily stun enemies. Spider-Man can also climb walls and use his webs to swing. Spider-Man can only use his web powers as long as his web cartridges are not empty. Spider-Man can refill his web cartridges by taking photos of the supervillains he comes across and selling the photos to the Daily Bugle newspaper.
The game has four difficulty levels with the hardest difficulty level Nightmare featuring random attacks from Venom.
A same titled game came out for the Genesis that features a similar story and general level progression, but the design of the levels are different.
