Explore New York City in the order you choose, cleaning up the streets and tracking down the 10 super-villains behind the plot to frame Spider-Man - all in 24 real-time hours.  The game starts with a lengthy cartoon intro before dropping you off at the Daily Bugle Office to begin your quest.  Although the manual makes the controls look complicated they quickly become second nature, and Spiderman is as agile as he should be - swinging through the streets and crawling along any flat surface including building facias.  Travelling around the city you must avoid or incapacitate gang members, animal enemies and the police,  as well as the occasional boss to hunt down the 5 keys needed to defuse the bomb and defeat the Kingpin.  A CD-audio rock soundtrack covers up the sometimes dodgy spot effects, and the graphics are pretty standard for platform-fare, but the game remains challenging and fun, if a little repetitive.
