MARVEL Spider-Man Unlimited

Gameloft/ Free

The Spider-Man universe comes alive in this wide-ranging and complex game that combines comic book and game action. Players can live the storyline from multiple comics as they play out the plot.

The action includes swinging, running, web-spinning, and fighting as the hero works with others on the team to save Manhattan from familiar and new villains, each more cunning than the last. The game offers six comic issues, with 5 boss battles and 25 missions per issue, with the promise of more to come.

The app is rated 12+ for frequent intense cartoon and fantasy violence, and it does include a multitude of in-app purchases ranging from under a dollar to nearly twenty dollars. There are third party advertisements, as well, so this app is not recommended for young children.

Pantipa Jaturat / Free

Now even the toddler and preschool set can claim their very own Spidey app. Get them going with learning their ABCs in Spider-man fashion, and they’ll feel like they’re playing with the big kids.

Letters are decorated with Spider-man’s favorite red, white and blue color scheme as well as webs in the best places. The app allows children to page through the alphabet, hearing letter names, sounds, and sample words.

The app features simple controls: kids use arrows to move through the letters and can tap to hear the sound and word played again. The app is rated 4+.

The Amazing Spider-Man AR

Sony Pictures / Free

The Amazing Spider-Man AR puts users right in the middle of the action.  “AR” stands for Augmented Reality. This app puts Spider-Man right into the world around you.

Just locate the special AR images and scan them to bring the hero to life. You can even snap pictures of him as he swings before your eyes. Unlock 13 original animations and achievements as you play.

Some users do, however, complain of unclear directions and other distractions. The app also contains connections to social media.

Users will also enjoy a selection of gifs and stickers to send to their friends on social media, as well as photo filters that allow them to take selfies with the Webbed Wonder.

There is also an AR suit explorer that will clue users in about the array of tech that goes into the Spidey-Suit.  Users will enjoy a wealth of exclusive content in this app.
