Face front, true believers! Or rather, face your smartphones and tablets, because that's where you'll see your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man sprinting, swinging and wall-crawling in Spider-Man: Unlimited, a new endless runner from Gameloft.

The game is more inspired by the Marvel comics than the recently-released movie, and features a cel-shaded art style to compliment the webhead hero. Gameplay is divided into virtual comic book "issues," each centered on a member of the Sinister Six - a supergroup of Spidey villains. So far, players can face down Green Goblin and Vulture, with more issues to be released in the future.

Spidey is bringing his trademark style and jokes to iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, meaning he'll swing (just about) wherever a spider can.

Gameloft and Marvel Unites the Spider-Verse with the Release of Spider-Man Unlimited for Smartphones & Tablets

11th September, 2014 – Gameloft, a leading global publisher of digital and social games, has teamed up once again with Marvel to release Spider-Man: Unlimited, the first web-runner, featuring a brand new Spidey episodic adventure in a hand-drawn comic-verse, with one of the largest selections of playable Spider-Men in any game at launch.

"Gameloft is thrilled to be working again with Marvel to provide Spider-Man fans with a faithful recreation of the comics, combined with an action-packed, chaotic runner experience," says Karine Kaiser, VP Marketing & Licensing at Gameloft. "With Spider-Man Unlimited, fans will enjoy a narrative-driven adventure featuring all of Spider-Man's unlimited powers."

Spider-Man Unlimited will be a runner like never before, featuring Spider-Man's powers of swinging, fighting, wall-climbing and more in a hand-drawn Comic-Verse, inspired by 50 years of Marvel Comics. The iconic Spider-Man must recruit an army of Spider-Men to run, swing and fight through the Spider-Verse to stop the Sinister Six, who have opened a dimensional rift to our world. Fans will be able to face these villains, and their dimensional counterparts, in a story-driven episodic adventure starting with the Green Goblin, the Vulture and Electro. The game features unique content, including Spider-Man cards that fans can collect, upgrade and fuse, and will feature newly released Spider-Men every 1-2 weeks after launch.

Spider-Man Unlimited is available for free on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, and Windows Phone.
