A free app for iPhone, by Gameloft.

Spider-Man Unlimited takes the beloved web-slinger and thrusts him into the popular endless runner format.

 While this isn't the first time Spider-Man has graced mobile screens (see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or the more recent Marvel Contest of Champions), the game offers a unique blend of fast-paced action, diverse character collection, and a surprisingly engaging storyline.

Character collection and upgrades of Spider-Man Unlimited

One of Spider-Man Unlimited's strongest features is its extensive roster of Spider-People. From classic favorites like Spider-Man Noir and Spider-Gwen to more obscure variants like Spider-Punk and Spider-Man 2099, the game caters to both casual fans and comic book fans. 

Collecting and upgrading these characters provides a satisfying progression loop, incentivizing players to keep running and web-slinging for that next unlock. This variety sets Spider-Man Unlimited apart from similar endless runners like Temple Run or Subway Surfers, which often lack the same depth of character customization and progression.

Fun, but familiar web-slinging action

The core gameplay of Spider-Man Unlimited is smooth and responsive. Players swipe to dodge obstacles, jump, slide, and web-swing through the city skyline. While the controls are intuitive and easy to pick up, the gameplay itself doesn't stray far from established endless runner conventions. 

If you've played Jetpack Joyride or Minion Rush, you'll feel right at home here.

In-app purchases hurt a bit

Like many free-to-play games, Spider-Man Unlimited offers in-app purchases for currency and character unlocks. While it's certainly possible to progress without spending money, the game does nudge players towards those purchases, especially for rarer Spider-Man variants. 

Compared to games like Marvel Strike Force, which are often criticized for their aggressive monetization, Spider-Man Unlimited strikes a more balanced approach.

Visually appealing and faithful to the comics

Spider-Man Unlimited boasts vibrant, cartoon-style graphics that capture the spirit of the comics. The character models are detailed, the animations are fluid, and the environments are varied and interesting to run through. The game also features voice acting for some characters, adding another layer of polish to the presentation. 

This commitment to visual quality is something Spider-Man Unlimited does better than many of its endless runner counterparts.

A solid endless runner for spider-fans

Spider-Man Unlimited is a well-crafted endless runner with plenty of fan service for Spider-Man enthusiasts. While it doesn't reinvent the genre, the game's strong character collection, engaging storyline, and polished visuals make it a worthwhile addition to any mobile gamer's library. 

If you're a fan of the web-slinger or simply enjoy a good endless runner, Spider-Man Unlimited is worth a download.
