I am not so sure,
what I expected when I was prompted to review this game, certainly
not much. Oh surprise surprise, Spiderman Total Mayhem is a
spectacular game for the iPod Touch and iPhone. One that actually
captures the web slingers adventures and puts it into a small
version to carry around with you. I almost could not stop playing
this surprisingly well-done game app.
Things kick off with

Gameloft brings a spectacular game to the portable platform. Where

Not so, with
Spider-Man Total Mayhem, the game comes off well polished and story
driven and actually brings that feel of being Spider-Man to a
portable device. With game levels and game play that are

Controlling Spider-Man is very fluid and simple. Fighting in the
game with strings of Spider-Man like combos is very satisfying.
Levels are large and detailed, any Marvel fan will be darn happy to
have this game on their iPhone or iPod Touch. Jump on over to iTunes
and grab this game and have a blast. This is how a game license
should be utilized on the portable platform.
Have fun, play games
