Co-Op Classics Video Edition: Webslinging with Spider-Man

Two webhead games are better than one

In this installment of Co-Op Classics, we have two brand new retro videos for your entertainment. Tying in to the theater release The Amazing Spider-Man, we looked back through the old catalog for two co-op 90s brawlers. One was an arcade hit: 1991's Spider-Man the Video Game. The other was available on home consoles in 1995: Spider-Man & Venom Separation Anxiety.

In the early 90s, the brawler was king, and many licensed properties were converted to arcade game form. This Spider-Man beat em up featured the wall crawler, Black Cat, Hawkeye, and oddly enough the Sub-Mariner. Keep an eye out for the shift between brawler and platformer, a nice innovation that was integrated perfectly.
