The Amazing Spider-Man description

Unpretentious arkadka about Spider-Man from the same series igroizatsii of MARVEL comics by Paragon at the turn of the 80th-90th.

So, the villain is Mysterio, the crazy special effects specialist and former stuntman, kidnaps Mary Jane Watson, beloved Peter Parker - Spider-Man to lure him to his Studio, stuffed to overflowing rosnovskij traps and robots...

The game itself seems primitive Spider is screen after screen, getting the scenery from different movies and battling robots, decorated in the proper style. Each screen is even assigned its own name for effect is like a movie that could take on those decorations.

Simplicity disappears when you start to understand - a Spider can jump in any direction, to walk and even run on any surface, swing on the climbing frame, which can blow in any direction or even from the jump... That allows you to write in the air the stunt of the modern game, it seems you arcades for children, compared with nearly simulator precision physics of raising himself to the floor above in the style of the new Prince of Persia.

Vrazhin not kill - you can only immobilize a climbing frame - but they can kill us. Beautiful picture with signature at the right edge of the screen is a big lifebar, which will gradually subside if you are going too intimately acquainted with every creature villain...

Summary. Beautiful, reasonably interesting and fairly long game for fans of the character -- and fans of the genre at the same time. IMHO, the best of the games Paragon of the era.
