The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man

Start web-slinging through New York in this action-packed game

Take on the role of Spidey in a plot that loosely follows the new film through 25 missions. There are plenty of side-quests available to play through, and you have the option to complete these alongside the story, or afterwards.
Graphically, the game is impressive.

The new engine that Gameloft uses allows for hi-res textures to be applied throughout, along with more advanced shaders, resulting in a beautiful open-world New York for you to swing around.

Movement is a joy for the most part, as the controls work well to get from A to B and only struggle on tighter areas. Fighting controls are relatively simple, and while bashing the attack button will win most fights with thugs, there are plenty of upgradeable combos to utilise.

The app’s biggest downfall – aside from it’s relatively short lifespan – is the voice acting; the film sought a darker tone, while the game is much too cheesy for our liking.

Rated 4 out of 5

A well-designed open-world game that makes you really feel like Spidey.

  • TITLE=Great new travel app for Londoners – to be updated in time for iOS6!;RATING=5;A friend of mind recently developed a new iOS app I thought you should know about, TubeTamer UK.

    A great new London journey-planner app the software gives you updates maps and a timetable of how to travel across London by tube, overground, rail, bus, riverboat or even by foot!

    It’s free and unlike some of the other transport apps I’ve used in the past the screen transitions seem pretty smooth, and reliably tested for iPhones.

    Now – full disclosure – I do know the developer in a personal capacity but he’s worked hard on this and would really appreciate some support as he has no funding and developed this between jobs. He hopes to launch a paid for version eventually that has platform numbers, integrated cycle routes, and accessibility options at each of London’s underground stations, as well as future versions for other EU cities.

    Please give it a go at http://www.tubetamer.co.uk/app

    Please tell your readers to give it a try – I’m really enjoying using it so far and it’s saving me
