So, there’s going to be a new handheld Spider-Man game coming out next month from Gameloft. It’s going to be called TOTAL MAYHEM (though it’s got nothing to do with Tyrese) and it’ll be available for the iPhone and iPod touch. I’ll admit to being more than a few years behind the curve when it comes to next gen tech like this - - I still just have a Verizon flip phone whose biggest feature is a tip calculator - - but this sounds pretty cool. Based on ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, it’ll feature 12 levels of action and 20 different combos for Spidey to trounce a whole gang of super-villains, including Venom.
Gameloft, the French company putting TOTAL MAYHEM out, has marked out a corner in the game world for putting out handheld games like this. They’ve won awards for their mobile versions of famous titles like ASSASSIN’S CREED, THE PRINCE OF PERSIA, SPLINTER SPELL, BROTHERS IN ARMS and, of course, IRON MAN 2. I didn’t realize there were awards for categories as specific as that, but my expectations exist only to be surprised on a daily basis, don't they? == TEASER ==
Anyway, here are some screenshots for you to peruse…
You know, I remember when the N64 SPIDER-MAN came out in 2000, everybody was going bananas over how cool it was to finally play as Spidey in 3D. Lord knows I idled away many Saturday afternoons playing that thing as a freshman in high school. I bring it up because these graphics look on par with that one’s, and the whole thing is just an app for your phone. A supplementary feature is basically pulling off what you needed an entire console to do before.
