Spider-Man is a video game developed by Western Technologies and published by Acclaim in 1995, incorporating elements form the critically acclaimed Spider-Man: The Animated Series. The game was released for the Super Nintendo and the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. A Remake was released in 2000 for the PlayStation
The gameplay was similar to most titles of this decade, it was a side scrolling action platformer. The game features six levels: a Laboratory, Construction site, Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, a showdown in a Penthouse, and Ravencroft Asylum.
The game features over twenty bosses: Owl, Mysterio, Beetle, Jack O'Lantern, Shocker, Hammerhead, Chameleon, Venom, Vulture, Rhino, Lizard, three Spider-Slayers (Alien, Tri-Head, and the combination of Black Widow, Tarantula and Scorpion), Alistair Smythe, Scorpion, Doctor Octopus, Hydro-Man, Tinkerer and Green Goblin. The game also features the Fantastic Four.
The Mega Drive/Genesis version is commonly known as Spider-Man - the Animated Series to avoid confusion with a previous Spider-Man game released on the console, The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin developed by Technopop and published by Sega, and simply referred as Spider-Man in the packaging box and instruction manual, hence the naming conflict.
