Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six is a game featuring the Marvel Comics characters Spider-Man and the Sinister Six, developed by Bits Studios and published by LJN for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1992. The game is loosely based on the story arc of the same name, which was published in The Amazing Spider-Man #334-339 in the early 1990s.
The player controls Spider-Man through six side-scrolling levels, with a member of the Sinister Six (Electro, Sandman, Mysterio, Vulture, Hobgoblin, and Doctor Octopus) at the end of each level as a boss. Spider-Man can jump, punch, kick, duck, climb certain walls and trees, shoot webs to swing on and collect web fluid to shoot square web projectiles.
The levels are generally straightforward side-scrolling action, although occasionally a particular item such as key or a detonator has to be found.
Spider-Man has only one life, but also has one continue. There are no icons available to restore energy. However, defeating several enemies can restore Spider-Man's power bar.
Doctor Octopus is setting his master plan into action to take over the world with the help of the Sinister Six. Spider-Man manages to defeat all of them and save the world.
