Gameloft, in partnership with Marvel has announced a new Spider-Man game that’s set to launch in September. Spider-Man: Unlimited has been developed to be compatible with iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices and is set to make its debut at this year’s E3 event at the Los Angeles Convention Centre.
Gamelot has been an enjoying an ongoing collaboration with Marvel, and unlike in their recently released Spider-Man 2 game, Spider-Man: Unlimited will use past variations of the superhero to create 23 different avatars. This is similar approach to the collaborative marvel slots games found at sites like MobileCasino.mobi. Users can upgrade to all 23 of these avatars, and in the recently released trailer Future Foundation Spider-Man, Spider-Man Noir and the original Spider-Man were all highlighted, giving gamers a sneak peek into what they can expect on their mobile.
For Marvel fans this new cross-platform compatible app means that they can swap from one device to another and still enjoy the exact same game. This is an especially big bonus for Windows mobile users, as the last release of Amazing-Spider-Man 2 that coincided with the movie was only available for Android and iOS. By creating a Windows compatible app Gameloft is accessing an entirely new user-base and their collaboration with Marvel has secured themselves a top spot in the industry.
Spider-Man: Unlimited is set in New York and features the same comic-style animation that made the Captain America app so popular. Gameloft specialises in this type of graphic-rich design and it perfectly complements the Marvel Superhero Universe. In Spider-Man: Unlimited, gamers will face off against The Formidable Sinister Six and a team of villains that include Electro, Vulture, the Green Goblin and Dr Octavius. The app is based on an episode-style story design that makes gameplay more challenging as it introduces villain’s dimensional counterparts as the game progresses. Gameloft has promised users a faithful recreation of the Spider-Man comics and committed to a fully optimised app for all 3 mobile platforms.
The game has been described as an “endless runner” and fans of all ages will enjoy the nonstop action, fighting and swinging through the streets of New York City in the pursuit of villains. The cross-platform compatibility of this app will appeal hugely to all Windows, iOS and Android users, so if you are a fan of Spider-Man, get ready to suit up!
