Followers of the Webbed One beware! You'll get caught up in the web of excitement spinning around the upcoming release of Marvel Comics' Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin on the Sega CD. This exclusive first look proves that Spider- Man vs. The Kingpin will be well worth the wait.

Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin is going to be a big game, packed with giant levels and teeming with the archvillains you love to hate. New, complex levels are being added to the original eight from the Genesis version, while enhancements to the original levels will harness the Sega CD's capabilities. Expect to see lots more animation, action and challenges in these expanded levels. Spider-Man's slick moves — swinging from webs and crawling across ceilings, arachnid- style — will be even slicker so he is easier than ever to maneuver. Exploiting the multimedia strength of the Sega CD.

Spider-Man vs The Kingpin will feature fluid, crisp, cartoon-like animation that ranks with the best, and 30 hard-rockin' minutes of original music to take maximum advantage of the Sega CD.

A Sticky Situation

Spider-Man's nemesis, the Kingpin, has devised a tangled web of deceit to entrap Spidey Masquerading as Wilson Fisk, Kingpin has tricked the citizens and police of New York City into believing that Spider-Man has planted a bomb set to wipe out the city in 24 hours. The city-wide chase is on as Spider-Man hunts for the bomb...while the police and a medley of bad guys hunt for him! Two of the cool new levels being added to Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin will test the webslinger's skills and smarts: Spidey perched atop a speeding subway train commandeered by Vulture and his henchmen, and the wall- crawler as the ultimate laboratory mouse...trapped in Mysterio's giant maze. Anybody who has ever wanted to don Spider-Man^ suit, swing from a web line in that inimitable Spidey style and crawl up a wall (and what fan of the Webbed One hasn't?) will love the pure challenge of Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin. This game will be heavyweight action/strategy game playing at its best.

Overview

You read about it in Sega Visions first: Our exclusive preview of Spider-Man vs Kingpin on the Sega CD (June/July issue) said this game would be well worth the wait. The game has arrvied and it is hot. Spider-Man vs Kingpin from Sega will entrap you with its giant proportions. The game is big—more than 65 levels — with beautiful, cartoon-like animation sequences throughout the game and action/adventure game play that lets you think, move and act like an arachnid. Cool new levels, such as Spider-Man trapped inside a giant pinball machine, add exciting dimensions to game play. SpidefiMan vs Kingpin's booming soundtrack features original theme music created jointly by Eric Martin from Mr. Big and Sega's own Spencer Nilsen.

A Spider-Man Hunt

You play as Spider-Man in a daunting, city-wide search for a bomb planted by Kingpin, while the cops and Kingpin's henchmen chase you. Your search is aided by the Spideytech 9000, an overview map of the city that you use to decide where you want to look next. Some of the areas you can enter are dangerous but will yield no clues... and no bomb... so choose carefully. Once you have cleared an area, the location is marked with a yellow "X." Clearing some areas will also lead you to an archvillain, such as Electro. After you defeat him, you'll see animation footage of Spidey and the bad guy. Listen to these sequences carefully for clues about where to search next.

Master the Cool Moves

Spidey's cool moves have been fine-tuned. Press Buttons C and B, and Spidey slings a webline and swings to safety Press Button B to dust a bad guy with a harmless blast of web. Other button combinations make Spider-Man stick to walls and do a battering leg sweep.

Nearly everything and everybody poses a threat to Spider-Man... even the good guys! Spidey can't harm the police dogs, though. You must avoid them or use your web to wrap them up long enough to escape.

Though the maze-like Spider-Man vs Kingpin may be as daunting as finding a needle in a haystack, action/adventure and Spider-Man fans will want to don the Webbed One's suit. With the number of levels in this game, they'll be wearing it a long time.
