Spider-man Games Available On Google Play Store
After a brief review, we have chosen the top 3 Spider-man games that you can get on the Google Play store and provided you links to each one. Let’s check it out!
Marvel Future Fight
Although the name sounds like it’s another one-on-one fighting game, this game is more like an RPG. You fight various enemies and upgrade your heroes. As you level up, you unlock different gear and talents for your hero.
The game offers over 180 Marvel characters, including Spider-man, and online challenges which you can compete with your friends. Multiplayer is a very interesting part of the game.
Graphics are nice, as well as controls. It is very easy to control your character during unlimited and interesting fights. The game is Freemium and you should download it, especially if you like Spider-man and the RPG genre.
Marvel Puzzle Quest
Unlike other Spider-man games which are full of action, this one is a Freemium match-3 puzzle game, with some fighting and RPG elements.
Basically, each time you complete a match, you do some damage to the enemy. It also has a storyline and offers an online multiplayer, including forming alliances with other players.
Being a Freemium, the game offers a lot of in-app-purchases to upgrade your hero, get some abilities, etc.
Gameplay wise, it reminds of Candy Crush Saga, but with tons of different elements added.
If you don’t like match-3-puzzle games then the game is definitely not for you. If you however like this genre, go ahead and download it from the link below.
Marvel Pinball – $0.99
A very interesting pinball game featuring Marvel characters, especially Spider-man. As you can see from the pictures, it’s not a classic pinball game.
At first, it’s graphically very nice. There are many interesting and a bit awkward pinball tables. As you play, you can unlock different ones, or buy them with real cash to speed up the process.
Each table is designed to feature one of Marvel heroes.
The game also supports local (hot seat) and online multiplayer modes, including also online leaderboards.
While you play, you will notice different interesting and funny animations. The game is constantly “active” and everything is perfectly animated.
Best Spider-Man Game for Android (Other Sources)
Since some games had recently been removed from Play Store, we spent some time in a search for alternative download links. Let’s check the top 4 Spider-man Android games which are not available on Play Store anymore.
Note that on most devices, you will have to enable “Install from other sources” in Settings, to be able to install games which are not downloaded from the Google Play store.
This game is created by Gameloft. They have a license for many Spider-man games for Android devices, but this one seems to be the best in various terms, including gameplay, graphics, animation and so on.
It’s a runner style game, similar to Subway Surfers, with some fighting elements included. You run through different cities and collect different items, which can later be used to upgrade your character. Also, you can unlock multiple characters during the game.
Besides the endless running, the game also offers a story mode with 25 missions and a few boss fights. The graphics are cartoon-style, which looks brilliant! Animations are also nice and smooth, with catchy music and BGM.
The game is a Freemium, however, it offers many In-App-Purchases, which include different items, upgrades, etc.
The Amazing Spider-man – $6.99
Unlikely the previous game, this is not a plain runner. It allows you to explore a full 3D open world of Manhattan, with realistic style graphics.
The gameplay is very smooth and controls are simple. However, sometimes you might come across the issues with the camera, when it won’t follow the character, but you have to rotate it by sliding across the screen. It can be very painful sometimes, especially when in a fight.
As you progress through the game, you level up, which gives you access to a variety of talents, in five different talent trees.
Using a web can also be entertaining since you can just pass over enemies, or attract you to them like a magnet. There is no free version of this game and it offers various in-app-purchases.
Since the game is often not available on Play Store, we are offering you a custom download link.
Marvel Contest of Champions
A classic fighting game which features Marvel characters, including Spider-man. One-on-one online fighting which also lets you enter the alliance with other players.
Graphics are excellent, including the animations, too. However, sometimes the result of a fight might be affected by pure luck, rather than your playing skills.
The game also has a campaign mode and, besides that, you will unlock different heroes as you play. Plus, as time goes by, many different features are being added to the game.
A nice Freemium game with in-app-purchases.
The Amazing Spider-man 2
If you liked the original The Amazing Spider-man, you will LOVE this one! Especially knowing that controls are improved which makes it a lot easier to play.
This is a purely Action Adventure game with lots of adrenaline. As you fight, you will soon start making combos, which are shown on a meter and you get rewards for long combo chains.
You can use web and melee weapons. Besides that, you also have the “reversal” ability, which can be activated only if properly timed.
There are different missions through the game, which include fighting gangsters, taking injured police officers to the hospital, boss fighting and so on.
Again, Gameloft hasn’t let us down when talking about the graphics. Both the characters and the urban environment look just amazing!
The only problem is that the game sometimes isn’t available for download, and nobody knows why.
Fan of Spider-Man? How about starting your own figurine collection?
Iron Spider-Man Armor Figurine Collectible
If you’re an enthusiast fan of Spider-Man, then nothing is more fulfilling than owning an epic collection of Spider-Man collectibles. This figurine was based from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Pretty epic if you ask us.
So, let’s sum it up
In terms of graphics and gameplay, The Amazing Spider-man 2 seems to be our favorite. Gameloft has definitely fixed all the errors from its predecessor and added many new features.
If you like fast-paced games, which can be played with just one finger, then Spider-man Unlimited is the right choice for you. Very well made runner game.
On the other hand, if you are a fan of puzzle games, especially match-3 games, be sure to check out Marvel Puzzle Quest!
