UPDATES /*** * / \______________________/ \ * * / \ * 1st July 2002 : Okay, I've finished the Enemies section. Final version released. 29th June 2002 : Finished the Museum and Amusement Park - walkthrough finished! 24th June 2002 : Finished Pier 54, the Nightclub and Chemcorp. 29th May 2002 : Finished Downtown and Empire Metals in the Walkthrough.

WHO AM I? /*** * / \______________________/ \ * * / \ * Call me Schlave. Anyway, I decided to make a walkthrough for this game because I'd finished it several times over and felt each stage was pretty tricky. Spiderman: Mysterio's Menace was the first Spiderman game to come out for the GBA, and it's getting pretty old and pales in comparison to certain GBA games BUT...it's a good game, and I don't want to let it die out so fast. This guide is for all those who run into hairy situations in the game, and to get every single item. Enjoy. * \ ________________________ / * * \/ \/ * *** \ 3. CONTROLS /*** * / \______________________/ \ * * / \ * Spiderman (or Spidey, as I shall call him) is controlled by the various buttons you see on your GBA. Because he's named Spiderman, you can make use of his various web functions, and if the situation gets tight, his fists and powerful attacks. ================================================ Basic Controls ================================================ Direction Pad Left : Moves Spidey to the left. Direction Pad Right : Spidey walks to the right. A Button : Jump (or Web Rope when in the air) B Button : Hand-to-hand attack L Button : Web Shot (a projectile attack) R Button : Sticky Web (ties up the enemy) Select : View the equipment you have Start : Pause the game ================================================ Secondary Moves ================================================ By pressing more than one button at times, you can make Spidey execute more complicated and showy moves, which sometimes help in tight situations. Some of these moves can be connected after the standard 3- punch attack, like after three punches, before doing a powered punch, you do an uppercut. The enemy should be winded for a long enough time to allow the attack to connect. Use these effectively and you'll be able to punch your way out of trouble in most times. B (while running) : Quick Kick Good for starting an attack on enemies. While running at a good speed press B and Spidey will leap forward and kick the enemy. UP + B (ground) : Uppercut A powerful punch to the jaw! Slow to execute, but is worth it. UP + B (air or while running) : Spin Kick Spidey turns his leg around and delivers and kick powered by centripetal force into the enemy! DOWN + B (air) : Assault Dive Spidey suddenly dives diagonally through the air, his foot extended for a kick which does medium damage. Good for strike-backs when trying to escape a bunch of attackers. DOWN + B (clinging upside-down on a horizontal surface) : Dive Kick The powerful, but most risky to execute move! If Spidey is clinging upside-down to a horizontal surface, press Down + B to make him dive vertically down onto an opponent's head for big damage! You can't control him while he dives though. L + R : Web Shield Spidey stretches his hands out and shields himself with a small web shield in front of him. Be careful of enemies from behind. * \ ________________________ / * * \/ \/ * *** \ 4. STAGES /*** * / \______________________/ \ * * / \ * Regrettably, Spiderman: Mysterio's Menace only has 7 stages, and at the start of the game you can only go to a few of them. But as you complete them, more will pop up and you can access them. If you haven't beaten a stage, it will be marked as a flashing red dot. If it is completed, it will be displayed as a yellow dot. There's no order which you can access them, so access at leisure. Each of the stages contains one of Mysterio's cronies. While Peter, the actual name of Spiderman, tells his girlfriend Mary Jane that he would fetch her a fishbowl for some of her goldfish, a TV newsflash comes in and reports chaos in the area. Peter promises to get the fishbowl later, and changes into Spiderman. Then off he goes... (Even after you beat Mysterio, the levels will still be available, so you can explore each one and get the secrets from there.) ========================================== DOWNTOWN Stop the crime wave in downtown Manhattan ========================================== Go right, Web Swing onto the next building to the right and climb onto the roof. Wait until the thug turns his back, then run up and deliver a running kick and punch him out. Then go to the edge of the roof and Web Swing twice to get to the next building's roof. There will be another thug there; at the end of your second Web Swing, kick him as you fly through the air and when he gets up, smack him down. There are 3 Web Refills on each side of the building, so fill yourself up to your maximum 3 capsules and swing to the next building, and the (very tall) building after that. But before confronting the gun-toting thug, stand on the left edge and Web Swing to find the FLUID FORMULA UPGRADE. Then go back and knock out the 2 gun-toting thugs and get the light armor powerup (green spider powerup). Then Web Swing thrice to get to the next building, and go back down to the ground and through the entrance for the second portion of the level. The moment you enter the second portion, there will be a gun-toting thug! Web Swing towards him and drive a foot into his face as you swoop along. Then stick to the ceiling and keep going past the 2 gun-toting thugs (you might need to use some Sticky Web to tie them up). As you go, leap over the furnace to collect some Web Refills, stick to the ceiling and give another thug a Dive Kick. Then go through the doorway to meet Hammerhead! ****************** *BOSS: Hammerhead* ****************** Hammerhead is the easiest boss to fight - he only has a 3-shot machine gun, and has the least strength of them all! The quickest way to defeat him is to stick to the ceiling, wait until he runs below you and then give him a Dive Kick to do a chunk of damage! Sometimes, he will ram the wall with his head and shake you off the ceiling; if required, you can always bind him with Sticky Web and punch him up. ====================================== NIGHTCLUB Track down Hammerhead at the Nightclub ====================================== You've got to save 5 hostages...and the enemies Hammerhead has placed in your path isn't making your job much easier! Anyway, at the start, immediately fire a Sticky Web to bind the gun-toting thug and beat him up. Then go up (ignoring the door to the right), smash up another gun- toting thug and enter the door. The moment you enter, hit the ceiling, and avoid any bullets that come by your way! There are numerous hoods around here, but a simple Dive Kick from the ceiling will do away with them. There's 2 health powerups and a light armor powerup at the ceiling - get these, then knock out all the hoods in this room and rescue the hostage (1/5). Then get out of there, back into the previous area. Then enter the door to the right. You find yourself in the huge disco area of the Nightclub! Now go up and left, take out the masked hood, and enter the door. In this room, take out the first hood you see, and if you need it, grab the invincibility powerup at the ceiling. Then take out the other 2 hoods on the right and rescue the hostage (2/5). Then exit the room back to the disco, and Web Swing right past a large disco ball, and onto a platform with another door leading to the male's toilets. Immediately, shoot a Sticky Web to bind a muscular thug, and beat up the other one while one is still tied up. Take out both of them and rescue the hostage (3/5). Then exit the toilets, and climb up the right wall of the disco, all the way up to the ceiling, and creep along the ceiling until you see a platform with a lone gun-toting thug and a door! Dive Kick him, and then enter the door. Beat up the hoods in there, then go left and grab the ARMOR SUIT. There are no hostages in here, so exit to the disco area. Then drop down to the bottom of the disco and enter the door to the right. In this next area, beat up the gun-toting thug, then go down the hole in the wrecked floor and into the door to the left, beating up another 2 gun-toting thugs. In the room, take out a hood and a gun- toting thug, and rescue the hostage to the left (4/5). Exit the room, go back up the hole in the floor, go right, stick to the black wall, and creep upwards to another level. There, beat up 2 gun- toting thugs and enter the door, where you will greeted by another gun- toting thug - smack him down, then rescue the last hostage (5/5). Then exit the room, and go allll the way down until you see another gun- toting thug and a door. Defeat the thug and enter the door, where you will meet up with, for the last time... ****************** *BOSS: Hammerhead* ****************** Apparently, his last-minute preparations are not much - you're really fighting same old Hammerhead in a room with a higher ceiling, so Dive Kicks aren't so easy to do. He charges much more often - dodge it with a simple leap in the air and when he runs past, give him an Assault Dive, stick to the wall, creep to the ceiling and follow up with a Dive Kick. There will rarely be more than one of his cronies in the room, and even those aren't much to worry about. One thing you do have to worry about is his shooting at the chandelier when his health runs below 1/3 - by shooting it, he brings down a shower of glass from the windows and the chandelier. The only way to dodge it is to stick to one of the walls; and furthermore, you can no longer stick to the ceiling! But even so, his strength hasn't changed much, so he shouldn't be too hard. =============================================== EMPIRE METALS Find out who's behind the mayhem at the Foundry =============================================== Punch up the first Foundry thug you see, climb onto the barrels and leap up to the platform on the left. The moment to leap onto the platform, the thug on it will charge you, so bind him with Sticky Web and punch him out. Take the light armor powerup, then stick to the ceiling and follow it until you reach a part that leads up, to another (hidden) platform. Ascend it, punch up the Foundry thug, and grab another light armor powerup (if your armor is already damaged) and 3 Web Refills. Then go back down and to the right, where they are many small, light brown metal platforms and a huge pool of molten metal (which can kill you instantly). If you need it, there's a health powerup to the very right of the molten metal pool, in a small alcove. Either Web Swing there or get to the other side, and creep down the wall to get it. When you're done, go right (if you haven't done so already) and take either the upper or lower path. Destroy the turret with a Web Shot, knock out the 2 ninjas and take the 2 Web Refills (or just knock out the single ninja if you took the lower path). Then proceed right to a place with several metal platforms...WAIT! Keep going upwards, using the platforms to help you, until you see a small path upward to another hidden area. Destroy the turret on the ceiling and take out the ninja and Foundry thug. Then take the 3 Web Refills and full armor powerup!! After that, go back down and to the right, knocking out the turret and ninja. Then leap up to a low-hanging ceiling and follow it to the right and upwards through a passage with cogs and buzzsaws on its walls. Avoid them as you go up, and then leap onto the platform on the left to find the LEFT WRIST CONTAINER. Then go back down, and to the right, knocking the ninjas as you go. If you need health, Jump onto the platform next to a bunch of barrels, then stand on the left edge and Web Swing to reach a hanging girder. There's a few metal platforms leading upwards, and one of them has a health powerup. Then go back down and go right, executing a well- timed Web Swing to grab all 5 Web Refills hovering above a molten metal pool, and knock out all the ninjas on the way. Then proceed to the next area. The next area is fraught with danger; the moment you enter, give the Foundry thug an assault dive. Then avoid the three turrets' shots and give the next thug another assault dive, then slowly take out the turrets one by one with Web Shots. Web Swing over the fire and stick to the wall, then creep up along it and don't stand up so you don't get hit by the cogs. Then destroy the turret and knock out the ninja, and proceed to the next area. In the next area, take out the first ninja you see, take the Web Refill, stick to the ceiling and follow a narrow passage upwards. Keep going along the corridors after, taking out two ninjas and grabbing an extra life as you go. Avoid the three tongues of fire but sticking to the celing and creeping by the moment they subside. At the end you will find another corridor blocked by cogs and lethal buzzsaws (remember this area...we're going back to it); so go down the passage and fall between the two metal platforms to find an invincibility powerup! Grab it, then swing to the platform on the right, find a ceiling to stick to and backtrack to the corridor with the cogs and buzzsaws...except this time, you can pass unscathed! Go through to find the WEB COMPRESSOR and another invincibility powerup. Then go back down and to the right, swinging across a giant molten pool and knocking out ninjas and thugs along the way, until you reach what seems to be a deadend. Now jump up to the ceiling, and surprise!There's another passage leading up. Avoid the cogs and buzzsaws carefully, then go up to the right to find an invincibility powerup. Use it to get past the Foundry thug, then go up the third passage to the left for full armor, then back down and up the second passage to the left and follow the path to the next area: the boss! ***************** *BOSS: Big Wheel* ***************** Big Wheel drives a big wheel machine which is very tough, and he has an assortment of attacks and defence maneuvres to boot. He has machine guns which fire 6 shots, a flamethrower and sets you alight and a short- ranged freeze gun, which chills you and slows your movements. There are also three turrets to lessen your chances of carrying out Dive Kicks. Luckily, he is slow, and there is a full armor powerup below the platform he is on. If you need it, there's no harm risking your life to grab it; otherwise, stick to Spin Kicks and Web Shots to defeat him. If you're so foolhardy, try for Dive Kicks; but make sure you take out all three turrets as you go along. ====================================== CHEMCORP Stop the power core from shutting down ====================================== When you start, tie up the Freeze Worker with Sticky Web and beat him up. Then go down, knocking out another Freeze Worker, and go down again and right, taking out a thug and a Bio Worker. Then go upwards, taking out a Freeze Worker, and down and right again, knocking out a Freeze Worker and 2 more thugs. Before dodging the laser traps, stick to the ceiling above the traps and creep upwards, leaping from wall to wall to avoid the sparking electric wires to find an alcove containing a full armor powerup, extra life and an invincibility powerup! Go back down, through the laser traps, and up again, taking out all the workers and thugs with a few kicks. If you need Web, stick onto the first overhanging ceiling above the two chambers of biological goo, and creep upwards to the right, where there are 3 Web Refills at the ceiling. When you are done, go back down and to the left, until you reach a section with a thug and 2 sets of sparking wires. Now this is tricky - you need to Web Swing at precisely the correct moment such that you swoop below the wires attached to the ceiling, and you avoid hitting the second set attached to the wall. Failing to do so will result in some very nasty life-sucking jolts of electricity. When you get past that, proceed left, and take out 2 Flame Workers. Then stand on the rightmost goo chamber, and jump up and stick to the ceiling. Creep up to the platform, and with some help from Sticky Web, knock out the four enemies you encounter. If you need health, jump up to the third stack of containers (four barrels) and from there jump up, stick to the ceiling and creep left to an upward path leading to a platform with Flame and Freeze Workers and a health powerup, full armor powerup and Web Refill. Then go back down and proceed right until you reach an area where biological waste cascades down in several waterfalls. What to do? Go back to the left and climb up a wall to the ceiling, then creep along the ceiling safely. Then proceed right and down a long way, then left, until you see a large drop to the bottom. Don't drop right down; instead, stick to the right wall and creep down until you see a corridor leading to the right, with a Bio Worker and a thug. Knock them out and take another long fall down and then go left. Take out the Bio, Fire and Freeze Workers on your way (ignore trying to get the Web Refills and extra life across the pool of slime; you can't do it without the Electric Suit). Then proceed left, taking out several Freeze and Bio Workers, and enter the door at the end. In the second area of the Chemcorp, go right, smash the Control Box (5/4) to disable the first laser. Then drop down the pipe onto a platform, and drop down a little bit more distance to find the second Control Box; destroy it with an assault dive (2/5). Then go right, hopping from platform to platform, knocking away thugs and workers and past the disabled second laser. Then enter the pipe and proceed until you come to an intersection with three more pipes; take the bottom path and when you emerge, Web Swing to the right wall and crawl upwards to find the third Control Box; give it a nice punch to destroy it (3/5) and backtrack to the pipe intersection (if you need Web, take the right path and you will emerge into an area with a worker and a thug. Beat them up and crawl along the pipe surface to find 3 Web Refills). Then take the upward path and when it splits, go left and past the disabled laser and the laser traps. Leap up and stick to the ceiling after you get past the third laser trap, and crawl all the way up to a corridor blocked by a laser...well, first leap up the ceiling from there and crawl up the wall, where you will find your way blocked by electric wires. Leap from the wall and web swing once - you will see a platform with electric wires ready to zap you if you bump into them, so time a second web swing right, swing and stick to the right side of the clear transport tube. From there, crawl into and up the tube, grab the Web Refill, and use a Web Pellet to knock out the fourth Control Box (4/5). Then go back through the tube, and web swing to the right wall of this area. Climb up as far as you can until you are blocked by electric wires, then web swing left and cling to the right side of the transport tube. Climb up and you will see an unreachable powerup. So stnad on the right edge of the ledge and web swing until you hit the right wall (just short of the electric wires), then from there, crawl onto the ceiling and to the right until you grab the ELECTRIC SUIT. Now return to the right wall and drop down a short distance, and into a corridor once blocked off by a laser. Proceed right, taking out a Foundry thug and a Bio Worker. Proceed through the tube and drop down to a platform next to another platform with sparking electric wires. You must time a jump very accurately to avoid screwing up; step off the platform to the right, and the moment you do, web swing and you should hit a platform with electric wires on its underside, and a Foundry thug standing on it (if you haven't done it right, you will hit the wires, fall back and plummet). Still being careful, crawl onto the platform when the thug turns his back, jump to avoid getting kicked off, and knock him out. Then leap to the next platform to the upper-left, shooting a Sticky Web at the Foundry thug standing on the platform as you jump, beat him up and crawl up the tube. At the top, take out the thug and destroy the final Control Box (5/5)! Now, you have to hunt down and defeat Electro, so make your way back to the transport tube nearest the fourth Control Box was. go through the cleared path and into the door beyond. **************** *BOSS : Electro* **************** Electro only has two attacks, but is very quick and very infuriating to defeat. He mainly sends a bolt of electricity snaking across the floor and up the wall and ceiling, and if he is hit he will teleport to the other side of the room. His second and much rarer attack is to jump to the middle of the room and create an electric triangle from the three generators in the room. You can dodge this by leaping to the upper corners of the room; no ducking. To defeat Electro, all you have to do is to keep jumping and Assault Diving him. Avoiding his electric bolts is easy; just don't linger too near him or he will punch you. ========================================= PIER 54 Investigate the disturbances at the docks ========================================= When you start, take out the muscled thug and leap on top of the green truck, then jump up and stick to the Pier 54 sign. Crawl all the way to the top (the Electric Suit will protect you from the electric wires), and proceed right, taking out all the Foundry thugs until you reach an orange metal scaffolding. Leap onto the girder and grab the SPIDER BELT, then go right until you reach the end of the building. Leap off the right edge and keep web swinging until you hit the very right of the level. Just drop down, take out the muscled thug, grab the extra life and descend two floors of the luxury boat to get to the entrance to the second area (quick, huh?). The second area is the casino. Simply go right through, cutting down numerous gun-toting thugs (if you need it, there's three Web Refills on one part of the ceiling). If you want an express route, jump on a table, stick to the ceiling and crawl all the way right. If you want, you could take out the thugs with one or two Dive Kicks, otherwise, whatever way you choose, exit to the right. The third area is located in the berths, so be very careful; one drop into the sea and you're gone. Make your way across the wooden platforms (there's an extra life below one of the platforms), and always use Sticky Web so that you don't get knocked into the sea by mistake. After a few platforms, climb up the wooden crates suspended above the sea, and very carefully take out the thugs waiting for you on each batch of crates. The best way is to simply tie them up when they're near the edge of the crates, then knock them off with a few well-placed hits or an assault dive. When you reach the building at the other side, climb up the metal girder and to the very top of the building. From there, leap off the left edge and web swing several times. Keep left always, and if you didn't screw up a single web swing, you will land on the top of the houseboat for the HEAVY IMPACT WEB. Then go back to the top of the building and make your way across the roof into the warehouse opposite. Go through the winding path in the warehouse, taking out Foundry and muscled thugs and snagging health powerups easily visible from the screen. When you exit the warehouse, crawl up the outer right wall (careful of the muscled thug on a lamppost) and web swing three or four times across a roff full of enemies to stick onto a wall with three health powerups. Top up your health, then go down into the warehouse. But before entering Rhino's lair, go up the left side of the warehouse, up onto the crates, and to the top left inner corner. There, web swing once to the right side of the warehouse and drop down to grab a health powerup, Web Refill and full armor. Then enter the boss room to the right. ************** *BOSS : Rhino* ************** Ugh! He's tougher to defeat than most other bosses, but a simple strategy will keep his danger at stake. His only attack is to keep running from wall to wall and headbutting the wall he runs to, quaking the room and shaking you off your feet or the ceiling and doing an ounce of damage. You can avoid this by being in mid-air when he headbutts. After that, though, he starts pawing the ground for a few seconds, enough time for you run over and tie him up, or punch him up. Or you could leap to the ceiling and if you're quick enough, hit him with a Dive Kick which takes a chunk out of him. Just don't try attacking him while he's charging, because you'll just get smashed out of the way very painfully. ======================================== MUSEUM Discover the secret behind the shipments ======================================== You are supposed to recover all 5 of the artifacts...anyway, cut down the yellow ninja at the start for the first artifact (1/5) and take the right lift at the far right. In the room you enter, hop up to the ceiling, snag the invincibility powerup, go left and cut down the otherwise impossible horde of enemies waiting for you. Then go up the passage on the left of the room, carefully avoiding the leaping flames, into a small area containing 5 Web Refills and the RIGHT WRIST CONTAINER! Then exit the room, and take the left lift. In the next room, take the lift on the right side, take out the first ninja you see, and crawl up the ceiling to the top, align yourself with the large ball-like display...and drop down, onto an unburned mat. Press down + jump and you will fall into a shaft with spikes. Avoid getting scorched by the fire, enter the door and grab the THERMAL SUIT from a study. Then go back out and up the shaft, and across to the right side of the previous room. There, proceed left through the room and into the lift at the left, and go to the far right of the following room and enter the lift there, all the while taking out enemies as you go. You will find a room containing two yellow ninjas and another ninja! You will find Sticky Web useful in tying up two foes while you beat up another, but take them all out and grab the two artifacts the two yellow ninjas drop (3/5). Then go back out through that room and another two rooms, back into the large room full of flames and spotlights. Enter an area outside the museum through a door on the far right, and take out the ninjas there to grab the fourth artifact (4/5). Re-enter the museum and enter the lift at the far left of the room. In the following display room, enter the lift on the far left and through that following room into the lift on the left. Cut down the enemies in that room and take the last artifact that the yellow ninja drops (5/5). After the cut-scene, retrace your steps to the room before the one where you found the second and third artifacts, and enter the only doors marked "Exit". ***************** *BOSS : Scorpion* ***************** Scorpion is immensely strong and VERY mobile. At first, he can use his tail to sting you (and do very little damage), but his main attack is to jump from wall to wall and eventually smash into you! After taking away half his life, he will leap to the platform and wave his tail about, causing electrical equipment to rain from the ceiling to be strewn all over the floor (dodge by clinging to the ceiling), so if you don't have the Electric Suit, you'll have much less space to maneuver around. But if you time it right, you can do a Dive Kick and hit him very hard while he's in mid-air. That takes away a good portion of his life! Tying him up with Sticky Web and beating him up is less efficient but more effective, and puts you at less risk. ============================================= AMUSEMENT PARK Defeat Mysterio and return the city to normal ============================================= Since this is the final stage, it is natural that it should be the trickiest and the toughest. Go right and up the roller-coaster tracks, refilling your health with the numerous health powerups on your way. Then jump onto and go along the roofs of park stalls, and leap onto the wall of a large stone building at the end. Snag the Web Refills and the full armor on the roof, go back down and into the haunted house. Take out the skeletons that throw themselves at you (they're actually quite difficult) and follow the linear right and through a winding path. Go up the wooden platforms, taking out skeletons as you go, and when you arrive at at area with three shafts, take the middle one. Go down the shaft that follows closely, then keep going left until you reach a stretch of track enclosed by wooden pillars in the foreground. Hop onto the ceiling and crawl left and up into a hidden brick passageway. There, proceed left until the path splits. If you need armor and Web Refills, take the upper path; otherwise go down the purple-walled passageway and go down the spike-walled shaft at the far left (if you are in need of an extra life, take the shaft on the left of the far left one). Then go right and across the fiery pit, and enter the door at the far right. The next area requires careful maneuvering to get past. You can only crawl through the narrow gaps in the spike-lined walls, but switch wall surfaces when necessary or you might accidentally crawl onto spikes. The enemies are all the more difficult to take out between the spike walls, but they should be manageable enough. After you get past those, you'll encounter spike-line pits with buzzsaws at the bottom, and clowns standing between the pits. Make one slip and it's all over for you! So tie up the clowns by shooting Sticky Web, and get across by standing a short distance from the left edge of the first pit and web swinging across the pit. After you cross both pits, go right and hop up the wooden platforms, taking out the Skeletons with a few well-placed Web Pellets, until you come to an IMMENSE spike pit. Except that one touch from the spikes means instant death! But you are going to grab the final powerup in this stage: the Symbiote Suit! So listen up. 1. Stand at the very right edge of the ledge before the spike pit. 2. Jump up and web swing two complete times. 3. Keep pressing forward to go forward as you fall and you will fall lower into a secret, spike-filled passageway. 4. Web swing along it and drop down the hole at the right end. Before you hit the ground, web swing left to avoid the spikes. 5. Now go left, avoiding the buzzsaws and follow the relatively linear path to the SYMBIOTE SUIT! Exit by the door at the end and head back all the way to the spike pit. This time, swing over the spike pit and go through the passageway filled with machinery, killing off clowns and skeletons, and work your way up the spiked shaft by climbing up the wall and swinging to platforms in the middle when the shaft gets spiky, and swinging to the other side (repeat this pattern). When you reach a part of the shaft with buzzsaws on the platforms, climb onto the sides of the buzzsaw platforms and make your way to the safe platform. There, leap up to the higher ledge and stick to the ceiling there with spikes. Crawl up to the top, where you will see a large, painted arrow pointing left, so swing left twice to another platform with skeletons milling around. Knock them out and stick to the safe part of the ceiling on the left end of the platform. Go up again, knock out skeletons, stick to ceiling at the right end, and once you're at the top, take out the skeletons and web swing a few times to another ledge. Stand at the left edge (DON'T FALL, or you'll have to backtrack again), jump and swing right past the huge ventilator fans to stick to a part of a ledge just above the spikes. Clamber up, crawl under the gaps in the walls, grab two Web Refills in a spike-filled room, and after crawling through a second gap, jump onto the wall and make your way to an even higher ledge with still more skeletons to defeat. Take them all out and enter the door at the right end, to face the ultimate adversary, the one behind all the chaos. ***************** *BOSS : Mysterio* ***************** Mysterio, being the final boss, is one tough nut, but he should be manageable with the Symbiote Suit. He has four attacks: - forming three fireballs which circle around him. He throws these after a short while, leaving him vulnerable for a few seconds. Touch the fireballs, you get hurt and Mysterio comes after you with the same attack again. - forming three copies of himself which have fireballs circling around them. If you are lucky enough to find a chink in the shield and get a Web Pellet or Sticky Web through, the real one will get smashed to the floor/tied up and the copies disappear. Hit a copy, it'll simply disappear. If you don't do anything, one of the copies (or Mysterio) throws his circle of fireballs. - swells to immense proportions and smashes the ground, causing a quake which shakes you off your feet or off the wall. - with a puff of smoke, he morphs into one of the bosses or you, and does a different attack associated with each boss. If he turns into you, he will throw Sticky Web, and if you're hit, you'll be tied up and helpless to any attacks thrown your way. Mash the buttons to get out. Dive Kicks and Assault Dives aren't efficient at all; you have to use plain old elbow-grease fistfighting. When Mysterio stands still for a few moments, use the opportunity to get in a combo or tie him up and punch him up. He is very tough and each of his individual attacks can do quite a nice bit of damage, Armour Suit or no, but it's easy to dodge them all. Soon, Mysterio will fall...and the game's over!

CUT-SCENE SCRIPTS /*** * / \______________________/ \ * * / \ * You know those comic-book-esque pictures that cut in at certain parts of the game? I decided to put in the text that accompanies the pictures, i.e. what the respective characters are saying. Just for the heck of it anyway ;-) At the beginning ================ MARY JANE : Hey Peter, I just won some new goldfish at the amusement park, but I forgot to pick up a fishbowl for them. PETER : I'll pick one up for you. Hang on a sec... (TV newsflash) TV REPORTER : ...Reports are coming in of rampant criminal activity around the downtown New York area. Police won't comment of whether these incidents are connected. Trouble has been reported at Pier 54, the Empire Metals Foundry, as well as the massive mob activity downtown. People are being warned to stay indoors. (newsflash ends) PETER : Mary Jane, something has come up...I gotta go. MARY JANE : Alright Peter, just don't forget my fishbowl! PETER A.K.A SPIDERMAN : It's gonna be a long night... After defeating Hammerhead 1st time =================================== SPIDEY : This is it, Hammerhead! You've got nowhere to go! HAMMERHEAD : Think again, Webface! Get him boys! (Spidey gets surrounded by thugs and Hammerhead escapes) SPIDEY : Hammerhead's thugs bought him time to escape into that nightclub. I'll track him down soon enough. Entering Nightclub ================== HOSTAGE : Spiderman! These mobsters are holding other hostages in the Nightclub. I managed to escape, but you've got to save the others! After defeating Hammerhead 2nd time =================================== SPIDEY : So, Flat-Skull...want to tell me what your interest in the Nightclub is? HAMMERHEAD : It's a contract job...it was good money, so I didn't ask any questions. (Spidey ties him up) SPIDEY : Well, I hope you don't mind me looking around. Don't go anywhere now. (Looks into a box) Seems like some sort of laser transmitter inside this crate. Looks a little too hi-tech for Hammerhead's caliber. Who would be using him to move around equipment like this...? I better follow my other leads... After defeating Big Wheel ========================= SPIDEY : Don't I know you? Wait, don't tell me...not the Sinister Six...not with Hydra. That wasn't it either. Who are you again? BIG WHEEL : You fool! You think you've outsmarted us, but I did what I was being paid to do. SPIDEY : What was that? Roll back and forth until you run out of steam? BIG WHEEL : We've distracted you long enough Spiderman. You'll never make it to Chemcorp in time before they fully drain the power core. SPIDEY : Draining the power core will cause a meltdown! I'd better get over there fast! BIG WHEEL : You're wasting your time Spiderman...HAHAHA!!! After defeating Electro ======================= SPIDEY : So, Electro...why steal electricity from this plant? Couldn't foot the electric bill at home? ELECTRO : Fool! I still have enough energy to power up the towers! SPIDEY : What towers, Electro? Did you brains get fried? ELECTRO : You're the one who's going to be fried, insect. (he grabs two sparking wires and ignites an explosion. Spidey barely escapes) SPIDEY : Whoa, that was close...no trace of Electro anywhere. I'd better take a look around and make sense of this. (looks at a smoking, crumbling tower) SPIDEY : So that was the tower Electro was referring to. How does that tie in with the other equipment I found earlier? After defeating Rhino ===================== (Rhino falls into the sea) RHINO : Help, Spiderman! SPIDEY : That overgrown bully fell into the water. I bet he can't swim. I can't let him drown now, can I? (Spidey rips him out of the water by the collar) RHINO : Uhmm...where am I? What is this place? Why am I all wet? SPIDEY : Hey Rhino, you don't seem like your usually grumpy self. Why were you causing such a ruckus at this pier? RHINO : I...I don't know...I was supposed to cause trouble here and keep any cops occupied while a shipment of crates was being moved to the museum. SPIDEY : What was the shipment? Who was moving it to the museum? RHINO : I...I don't remember... SPIDEY : Well, it looks like I'm going to have to find out for myself... Entering the Museum =================== SPIDEY : Pesky ninjas, always trying to steal precious artifacts from the museum. Won't you ever learn? NINJA : Catch me if you can Spider-Wuss! SPIDEY : I'll catch you and the rest of your ninja buddies. Recovering the last artifact ============================ NINJA : Ha ha ha! You've wasted your time hunting us down Spiderman. Scorpion surely has everything set up by now. SPIDEY : Scorpion? What's his interest in the museum? NINJA : Sorry bugbrain. Why don't you ask him yourself? SPIDEY : I think I'll do just that. After defeating Scorpion ======================== SCORPION : You weren't supposed to come here, bugbreath! SPIDEY : Let me guess, you were expecting a shipment from the docks? SCORPION : I don't know where the shipment was coming from. The deal was that I would set up this hardware and in return I'd be given the technology to get me out of this suit. SPIDEY : Well, sorry to disappoint you Gargan, but it looks like you've been taken for a ride. Stay put while I check out what you've got here. (Spidey opens a crate) SPIDEY : I should've known...Electro's transmission tower, Hammerhead's laser transmitter...and this holographic projector. Looks like they've all been hired to set up various transmitters around the city. (Suddenly, holograms appear around the city) SPIDEY : Holographic illusions. But I thought I stopped all the transmitters? There must have been one that I missed. There's only one man who could pull off such a scheme...Mysterio! I better find a way to pinpoint his location and put an end to this. (In his room, Peter rigs up a tracking device) PETER : With this tracking device, I can find the tower that's projecting these illusions. Hmmm...seems like a strong signal coming from the abandoned amusement park outside of town. I'd better go over there and put an end to Mysterio's handiwork. After defeating Mysterio ======================== SPIDEY : Well, Chrome-dome. Looks like there's only one of you now. What's the matter, ran out of pixie-dust? MYSTERIO : You think you've defeated me, Spiderman?! Think again! (Mysterio disappears) SPIDEY : Great. Now I'm left holding your dirty laundry. I should have figured you had an escape route planned. Spider-sense is going haywire! Got to get... (There is a mighty blast, and Spidey emerges bruised and bloody) SPIDEY : So once again, Mysterio managed to escape somehow. Just my luck. Some day this turned out to be... (Soon, Peter is back at home with his girlfriend) MARY-JANE : Hey Peter! Thanks for remembering to pick up the fishbowl. PETER : Well Mary-Jane, you'll never believe what I went through to get it... * \ ________________________ / * * \/ \/ * *** \ 8.
