I posted this question a few months ago, but it got lost when the board melted down.
I bought a Spider-Man computer game for my son for Christmas. Actually, it was for me, but I had to buy it for my son so my wife would let me get it.
The game is great, but I’ve got a problem. Once I … I mean, once my son kills the bad guys at the bank and finishes off the Scorpion at the Daily Bugle, Spidey has to swing and jump among the rooftops while New York’s Finest try to shoot him. And eventually, he winds up on a crane. According to the Spidey Compass, he’s supposed to swing to another crane nearby. But when Spidey does this, the game shows a fixed loop of animation in which he falls to his death. Nothing I do … I mean, nothing my son does prevents Spidey from dying once he starts to swing toward the crane.
I can’t tell you how many times I … I mean, my son has tried to get past this stage in the game, to no avail. So, a question to anyone else who has the computer version of the Spider-Man game – how do you get past this stage? Does my game have a bug in it that prevents me from advancing? Or am I not doing something right?
(Based on comments I’ve seen elsewhere, the Nintendo version of the game doesn’t kill you when you swing toward the crane.)
