Posted on 13 September 2010 by kathydpaulin

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem is the latest highly polished piece of software to be released.  It is an action packed game with a lot of adventure.  Marvel released a license for this game.  And all the famous mortal enemies of Spider-Man are present to make his life more exciting.  Just like in the movies you get to kick the villain’s asses by swinging through buildings, shooting webs, and all Spidey’s killer moves.  The gameplay of the game is exceptional.

The game has a totally smooth fighting system.  By tapping some buttons you can easily string some combos.  You can also try other button combinations to see what Spidey’s actions will be.  Some combinations would result in Spidey pounding an enemy’s face plus some other moves.  Some items in the environment can be destroyed too and you’ll get points if you run amok through those items.

Orbs float around after you’ve slain your enemies and it is the most common reward you’ll get.  The game can be paused anytime you want and spend the orbs you gathered to upgrade your skills.  There are also hidden comic books all throughout the levels which can be viewed through the menu screen.  Plus, you can take screenshots of the pages and use it as wallpapers for your iPhone’s screen.

Each game level is well depicted with every details and construction.  New York is shown as it is in the comic books.  Fires look real enough while raging over windows.  Although you won’t be able to move the camera angles you don’t really need to since it always give a good view of the whole scene.  Cutscenes between each game level are shown to give an idea on the game’s storyline.  Players are put against villains and must figure out how to escape unscathed. Honestly the stories are not too compelling but the game still keeps up with the action.

There are 12 levels where you get to fight scum and work your way up to the boss battles.  The super villains you’ll get to battle with are:  Sandman, Electro, Venom, Rhino, Green Goblin and Dr. Octopus.  You’ll definitely feel in control of the game since the game controls are effortless.  There’s never a dull moment with this game.  Spider-Man: Total Mayhem is one of the best iPhone games ever released by Gameloft.  It pushes the boundaries of the capabilities of the iPhone.  The game is well designed and you’ll not find something to complain about.
