The iPhone has always been touted for its gaming platform. The appstore has been reported as being populated more with games than any other class of apps.
This evening, I went downloading free apps from the appstore. In addition to Facebook, Yahoo Messenger, Dropbox and ReaddleDocs, I thought to try out one or two games. I chose Angry Birds (which I enjoyed tremendously on the Nokia N900) and SpiderMan: Total Mayhem.
While I haven’t played Angry Birds on the 3GS yet, I have been unable to stop being Spider Man. In summary, I have spent the last 30 minutes or so leaping, spinning webs, and swashbuckling bad guys. I am reliving my primary school days fantasies – and this is better than any comic book that I ever read.
And here is what I am (after beating up some major bad guys):
The Mini Game option is free, and you can enjoy the full glory of the game by purchasing the full version.
My son is hooked too, as he is as much a fan of Spiderman as I am. The graphics rendering, especially the special effects, is simply awesome. Gameplay is very good. In a few minutes, I was comfortable with the game. And now, I fear I will become a mobile game junkie.
Excuse me while I go another round as Spidey!
SPIDER-MAN: Total Mayhem is brought to you on iOS by Gameloft.
