A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Amazing Spider-Man is a mobile tie-in with the summer movie of the same name. While there's plenty of action and fist fights, there's no blood or anything especially graphic. The violence is well beyond cartoon violence, but not nearly as bad as some other action game offerings. It's also wise for parents to go into this game realizing it might increase children's pleas for other Spider-Man merchandise (or, at least, to take them to the film).

What's it about?
Players explore Manhattan helping curb street crime and unraveling a bigger storyline by tapping and holding the screen to swing via web. Spider-Man's \"Spider sense\" alerts them when an enemy is about to hit and, if the correct screen button is hit in time, they will be able to counterattack enemies and wear them down. By thwarting crime, players boost their experience and are able to upgrade Spidey's powers, adding new offensive capabilities.
Is it any good?
While it's made for mobile devices, The Amazing Spider-Man plays like a console game. And that's a compliment. The game follows not only a solid storyline, it also offers plenty of side missions, letting players live out their Spider-Man fantasies of helping people in need.
While playable on phones, this is a game that shines on the larger screen of the iPad, where the controls are spaced well. (On smaller devices, they can be a bit tight.) There are some graphical glitches -- and the game runs slower on older devices, but at its heart, it's an enjoyable action/adventure game that will keep fans happy.
