How Fast Does Spider Man Swing?

When you think of Spider-Man, you probably picture a wisecracking teenage superhero swinging through New York's monolithic skyscrapers, catching criminals and rogues like they're going out of style. That's pretty much what Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered does, and the result is one of the best web-slinging experiences on a console game in quite some time. The game's simple swinging mechanics work well enough on their own but you do have to learn some tricks and get a feel for the air and physics if you want to really fly through the city at high speed.

Luckily, Insomniac has designed the swinging to be as intuitive as possible and it's pretty easy to master once you get used to the rhythm of it all. Basically, you need to shoot webs at the end of an arc to gain momentum and speed up your next swing. Shooting a second web when you're at the top of your arc will give you more height.

You can also do a variety of other moves to add more excitement to your web-slinging, including "web-zip," which is essentially a vertical helix spin, and Point Launch, which requires that you're perched on a vantage point. Hitting X on these will see Spidey launch forward with a significant speed boost. The game's skill trees can augment your web-slinging experience a bit, too.

Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962, and the character went on to star in a series of comic books, feature in several movies and TV shows, and battle villains such as Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and Venom. The character has super strength, agility, the ability to cling to walls and objects, and a sophisticated spider-sense that lets him react quickly to danger.
