Apple Swings with Spider-Man
8:39 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A new preview has been posted in the Games section of Apple's web site, looking at the upcoming release of Spider-Man from Aspyr Media. The title is expected in the next month or so, preceding the new movie with the same name.
The game makes use of the Tony Hawk 2 engine, and Mark Krenek of Westlake Interactive (who also worked on TH2) is already well under way with the game, now in the alpha stage of development and playable under Mac OS 9 and X.
Aspyr president Michael Rogers notes performance under Mac OS X 10.1 is already astounding:
Itís a compelling story to me as a gamer that I can see better game performance with my existing set-up, just by running Mac OS X version 10.1.The preview contains a quick history of the series, some tips and cheats, as well as the system requirements for the game. While these could change before release, the requirements seem consistent with TH2:
- 266 MHz PowerPC G3 processor or better
- Mac OS X or Mac OS 8.6 or higher
- 64 MB of RAM
- OpenGL 1.1.2 or higher
- CarbonLib 1.0.4 or higher
- ATI Rage Pro Card with 6 MB of Video RAM or better
- QuickTime 4.1.2 or higher
Check out the rest of the Apple preview now, and be sure to read through our own coverage of the game for more information.
