Spider-Man: The Video Game is a hybrid brawler/action-platformer starring Spider-Man, Black Cat, Sub-Mariner, and Hawkeye. It's the only licensed brawler released for arcades by Sega.
SPIDER-MAN - Bitten by a radioactive spider, Spider-Man has the proportionate strength and agility of an arachnid.
HAWKEYE - Equipped with a custom-made bow, Hawkeye is an expert archer and an extraordinary marksman.
SUB-MARINER - Possessing the attributes of the Homo mermanus species, Namor is amphibious and endowed with superhuman strength.
BLACK CAT - A former cat burglar turned crimefighter, the Black Cat is an Olympic-level athlete with a black belt in karate and judo.
This is Sega's only licensed brawler. It's also their first four-player brawler.
Villains featured in this game include Kingpin, Venom, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Lizard, Scorpion, Sandman, Green Goblin, Hobgoblin, and finally Doctor Doom.
Spider-Man is like a lame Konami game from Sega. Sure, it's a licensed brawler with good graphics and simple gameplay. But Spider-Man's combat is flat, stiff, and boring whereas Konami games are usually exciting despite the simplicity. The action-platformer stages are interesting but not really what I'm looking for in a brawler, especially for arcade.
