So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Now you can be Spider-Man, and on your Game Boy Color to boot.

Oh yeah, this game came out three months before 9/11. Can you guess which buildings the third stage takes place in? Oops. Surprisingly, it wasn't recalled, unlike Spider-Man 2: Enter: Electro.

Hidden Message

Present at 0xB667F in the ROM, this message references developers Grant Davies, Michael Smith, Peter Suwara, Paul Clarke and Ivan Kenny-Sumiga, respectively. Note: line breaks are added in for readability.

Grant was last seen fleeing Torus Games with a briefcase packed full of money under each arm.  He remains wanted in 4 states.

Smitty made several unsucessful attempts to circumnavigate the world in a lunch box.  He now lives in Peru.

Peter 'Stinky' Suwara devoted his life to the quest of spiritual enlightenment. He has lived in recluse since Spider-Man.

Paul submitted several game designs to Activision, all featuring a snowboard and a railgun. None were accepted.

Ivan was arrested after a hosting series of wild parties with crazy antics. He is currently serving 32 life sentences in a state penatentiary.

Object List

A long list of object names can be found at 0x4F010. Its purpose is unknown. (Possibly part of some sort of debug menu?)

Boss Rooms

Interestingly, almost all boss rooms in the game are bigger than they actually appear. In normal gameplay, boss rooms are confined to a single screen and it isn't possible for Spider-Man to leave that screen. This makes portions of those boss rooms unused since they can't be seen normally. The method used to find the full boss rooms listed below involves corrupting the ROM.
