Everyone remembers how popular Spider-Man was back in the early 90’s. The web-crawling superhero received his own animated series which appeared on the Fox Kids Network from ’94-’98. Before ’94 we got to see memorable games on consoles like the NES such as: Spider-Man: Return Of The Sinister Six. As some people are aware Spider-Man: Return Of The Sinister Six was released in ’92 for the NES, Game Gear along with the Master System. In terms of quality was far from the best Spider-Man title that gamers have seen; but the 8-bit visual quality at the time was impressive. This particular Spider-Man game presented players with six different side scrolling levels each ending with a boss battles. The main villains included in this Spider-Man game included Sandman, Mysterio, Vulture, Electro Hobgoblin and Doctor Octopus. The NES version of Spider-Man: Return Of The Sinister Six was notorious for its difficultly level. Players generally had only one life along with single continue after dying. While players were able to restore their health bar by destroying various enemies Return Of The Sinister Six was still very unforgiving.
While the 8-bit graphics for Return Of The Sinister Six was a plus the control scheme was considered to be a negative. In fact, the faulty controls was one of the reasons why a game with only six levels was so difficult to complete. Even though, Return Of The Sinister Six would have looked better on the Super NES the game would probably be just as difficult as the NES version of the game. Bits Studios the developer for Return Of The Sinister Six has been defunct since the mid 00’s. Along with titles such as R-Type II, Alien and Terminator 2: Judgement Day; Spider-Man Return Of The Sinister Six was one of the more memorable games they produced during the 90’s. There are many people who go on record and argue that the Master System and Game Gear versions of the Sinister Six game from ’92 were far easier than the NES port. Since the publisher for the NES version of the ’92 Sinister Six game was different from the company who did the Game Gear and Mega Drive ports; its not too surprising why those two versions was better than the NES port.
