While a prototype was found and ultimately released by aftermarket sources, this version, the official parker release never saw the light of day. The earlier copies or aftermarket releases used modern movie imagery, which didn't gel with me really, but in 2016 there was a faithful parker sty box release used for the imagery herePLAYING
Game Goal “New York City is at the mercy of the GREEN GOBLIN. He equipped the city's skyscrapers with SUPER BOMBS. I (Spider-Man) must now save the city. But the GOBLIN will try to stop everywhere. Criminals and time bombs - even the GREEN GOBLIN himself - stand between me and the SUPER BOMBS! Can I save the city before time runs out?” The aim of the game is to defuse as many Super Bombs as possible and score as many points as possible. Controls The joystick and action button are used to move Spider-Man up the skyscraper. First press the action button. Then push the joystick up, left, or right. A line of cobwebs will shoot up or diagonally left or right. (Once Spider-Man is up, you can also shoot the cobwebs down). Release the action button when the intended length is reached. The line ranges from short (by quickly releasing the button and controller simultaneously) to long (by pressing the action button and holding the controller in the desired direction until the line stops). Once a line has been shot, the line can be lengthened or shortened by pressing the controller up or down). The web can also be canceled before Spider-Man moves by quickly pressing and releasing the action button. When the cobweb is complete, use the controller to move Spider-Man onto the skyscraper. When the line of cobwebs is directly above Spider-Man, move the controller up. Spider-Man will climb vertically to the end of the line. If the line of cobwebs is diagonal to Spider-Man, he will swing back and forth at the end of the line until the controller is pushed up. Spider-Man - Box Back Spider-Man - Box Back While climbing, Spider-Man can be stopped before he reaches the end of the line by quickly pressing and releasing the action button. The end of the cobweb line must land on the building (not on a window) or the tower. If it lands on a window or part of the sky, Spider-Man will fall. In order to save him, a new line must be "shot" quickly. The Super Bomb is on the highest point of the skyscraper that Spider-Man has to reach. The game starts with three Spider-Man. Cobweb Liquid Each Spider-Man has a finite supply of Cobweb Liquid that diminishes over time. The inventory is displayed at the bottom right of the screen. To replenish the liquid, Spider-Man must catch criminals and bombs. When the liquid runs out, Spider-Man falls down and the game continues with a new one (of three). When the music starts playing, Spider-Man starts his mission. Watch out for the criminals. Your task is to stop Spider-Man before he reaches the High-Voltage Tower. The criminals appear randomly by illuminating a window. If the line of cobwebs crosses one of these windows, the criminal cuts through it and Spider-Man falls. Quickly shoot another line or you lose a Spider-Man. Spider-Man can catch the criminals by swinging past one of the windows. Each criminal caught is worth three points and cobweb liquid. When Spider-Man reaches the top of the building, maneuvering becomes a bit more difficult. Here you have to remember that when the web line lands in the sky, it falls down. Spider-Man - Cartridge Spider-Man-Cartridge There are other dangers on the high-voltage tower: the Green Goblin's time bombs. The time bombs have a countdown to detonation, indicated by black to red. Spider-Man can defuse the bombs by sliding his body over them. Black bombs are worth 5 points, red bombs are worth 8 points. Additional cobweb liquid. If Spider-Man's webs cross a bomb or a bomb detonates near him, he falls. With a quickly shot cobweb you can save him or you will lose a Spider-Man. Of course, the GREEN GOBLIN doesn't want his criminals caught or his time bombs defused. So he decided to make the task harder. He has set limits on how many criminals or time bombs Spider-Man can eliminate... If Spider-Man catches too many bombs or criminals, the GREEN GOBLIN will start the super bomb timer. As you move Spider-Man up the skyscraper, listen carefully. If you hear a low tone, the GREEN GOBLIN has started the timer. Get to the super bomb very quickly. On the top of the high-voltage tower is the super bomb - and the GREEN GOBLIN. To get to the Super Bomb, Spider-Man has to pass the GREEN GOBLIN. If he touches Spider-Man or his threads, he will fall down. As always, he can save himself with a quickly shot thread. The Super Bomb can be defused by Spider-Man covering it with his entire body. There are bonus points according to the points scored while climbing the building. Continue with the next building on a more difficult level. The building will then be higher and the cobweb liquid will be consumed faster. There are eight different levels. At the start of the game, the level can be selected directly - after RESET, press 0 (easy) to seven (difficult).
