Amazing Spider-Man gets slick new feature

1 min read


Spider-man developer Beenox has revealed the new Web Rush mechanic for the Amazing Spider-Man game – and it’s starting to sound like this game could rise to the heights set by Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man; very probably the best games to feature the web-slinging hero.

"We introduce an all-new gameplay mechanic called the Web Rush, which gives players real-time navigational and combat choices," Jacob Berg wrote on the Amazing Spider-Man Facebook page."Web Rush can be triggered on the fly, at any moment and immediately presents you with a variety of situational choices, letting you pull off Spidey’s signature moves like never before."

Amazing Spider-Man, says the developers, "brings back free-roaming in Manhattan, where you guys will be able to swing around and discover a variety of side missions, challenges and mini-games in addition to the main storyline." That’s a good thing. I think more recent Spider-man games have been pretty limited in scope.

The new game’s based on the film reboot, starring Andrew Garfield – and both the film and the game have drawn parallels to Mirror’s Edge.They’ll both be out this year.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
