Gameloft has just launched The Amazing Spider-Man ahead of next week's theatrical release of the Spidey reboot. The Amazing Spider-Man's story is inspired from the upcoming movie, so be prepared to play as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man as you web-sling and crawl your way through a completely open, 3-D New York City to stop the Lizard. Before we dive into the game, let's take a look at what to expect on the big screen next week: I'm too excited. Wait, where was I? Oh, right. As outlined in the app's release notes, some of the games biggest features include:
• Fight the Lizard and his minions to put a stop to his dark schemes. • Play the Amazing Spider-Man through more than 25 immersive missions inspired by the upcoming movie's storyline. • Climb, jump and web-sling from building to building for an aerial thrill like never before! • Explore the city through its five distinctive districts (Central Park, Business, Downtown, Pier and Residential)The Amazing Spider-Man also features a melee, ranged, and combo-based attack system that's typical of most Spider-Man games. Of course, a wide selection of upgrades are available to customize your attacks and skills. The Amazing Spider-Man is available in the App Store for $6.99 as a universal app. This is a Gameloft game, but don't worry - you won't be bombarded with in-app purchases.
