About This Game
Spider-Man: The Movie is an action video game based on Spider-Man, a Marvel Comics character and is directly based on the first feature film starring the eponymous character. The game has several scenes and villains that did not appear in the movie.
It was followed by Spider-Man 2 two years later to promote the release of the second film. Peter Parker develops spider powers after being bitten by a genetically modified spider.
The game begins with an optional tutorial, narrated by Bruce Campbell, where Peter learns how to use his powers and the player learns the game controls and how to read the HUD. After competing in wrestling as Spider-Man, Peter is devastated when his uncle Ben is killed by the leader of the Calaveras gang.
