Video Game Ad of the Day: Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage

Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage is a beat ’em up for the Mega Drive and SNES based on the 1994 comic book crossover event of the same name where Spider-Man and Venom team up to fight a new symbiote called Carnage. The Japanese Mega Drive version, which is for all intents and purpose identical to every other version, is one of the rarest and most expensive Mega Drive games.

The one that started a real turnaround for superhero games.

Spider-Man is the nineteenth (I believe) game based on Marvel’s most popular comic book character, and the first to be published by Activision, who still holds the license to this day. The game was developed by Neversoft using the same tech from Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Spider-Man vs. the Kingpin

An early hit on the Mega Drive

Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin was the webhead’s first 16-bit home console outing. The game was pretty unique in that you had to manage Spider-Man’s supplies of web by taking pictures for the Daily Bugle while on your missions. You could also head back to Parker’s apartment to rest – but time was a limited resource, as you had just 24 hours to prevent a bomb from destroying New York, and to rescue Mary-Jane from a pool of acid.
