Maximum Carnage springs Spider-Man, Venom, Carnage and numerous other Marvel Comics characters into life. You begin the game as Spider-Man, who spins webs and possesses the proportionate strength of a spider. He is also equipped with Spider-Sense, which tingles when danger is near.
At certain points throughout the game's 25+ levels of play, you can switch to Venom, who was created when Spider-Man's (temporary) black alien symbiote costume melded with reporter Eddie Brock. The symbiote also infected Cletus Kasady, who as a result became Carnage.
Venom hates Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man), but he feels responsible for the havoc being wreaked by Carnage, so he assumes the role of one of the good guys in this game. Carnage has enlisted Shriek, Doppelganger, Demogoblin and other supervillains and thugs to join his reign of wanton chaos, destruction and mayhem.
Security systems, robots, crazed citizens and other obstacles interfere as well. Luckily, Captain America, Black Cat and various other superheroes will even the odds by occasionally coming to your aid. Simply pick up the superhero icons when you see them and use them as needed.
The beat-'em-up action in Maximum Carnage takes place in New York City and San Francisco. You'll fight in the streets and alleyways, on rooftops, inside the Fantastic Four Building and in Central Park.
You can jump, backflip, punch, kick, crawl and perform somersaults, and you can use your webs for swinging, climbing, firing web bolts and pulling enemies toward you. You can even form your webbing into a shield! To help you in your struggle to maintain law and order, you can collect energy boosters, extra lives and continues which appear throughout the game. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
