Spider-Man does whatever a spider can and Spiderman is back once again on the Game Boy Color. It’s time to become the famous web-slinger once again and hit the streets to rid them of crime. Just watch out for your arch-rivals who will do whatever they can to stop you. Spider-Man 2: The Sinister Six follows on from the original game and adds brand new ‘Spidey’ moves. If you loved the first game, or like platformers in general, this new adventure is for you.

Spider-Man’s special abilities allow him to swing across the rooftops of Manhattan and sense when danger is imminent. If any bad guys get in your way, you can punch and kick them into submission. If you want to play it safe, you can entangle them in a web-ball and knock them out when they can’t fight back.

The control method has been tidied up from the first game, and as a result, it is a lot easier to make Spidey do exactly what you want. The level design is better than the first game and feature more secret locations for you to discover.

Another gameplay twist is that now your webbing is no longer unlimited, you must find icons and power-ups to refill your web. This adds a tactical challenge to the action.

Spider-Man 2: Sinister Six is easily one of the best action platformers on the Game Boy Color. If you haven’t checked it out yet, do so straight away.
