Questprobe Featuring Spider-Man review

Questprobe Featuring Spider-Man is an adventure game released for DOS in 1984. It was developed by Adventure International and designed by Scott Adams, a prominent figure in the early days of text adventure games.

In Questprobe Featuring Spider-Man, players assume the role of the web-slinging superhero as they navigate through a series of text-based scenarios and puzzles. The game features a parser-based interface, where players input commands to interact with the game world and solve various challenges.

The storyline revolves around Spider-Man's quest to rescue the imprisoned members of the superhero group known as the X-Men. The game takes place within a virtual reality simulation created by the villainous character known as the Chief Examiner. As Spider-Man explores the simulation, players encounter different Marvel characters, including the Hulk, the Human Torch, and the Black Cat.

Questprobe Featuring Spider-Man was one of a series of three adventure games based on Marvel superheroes, with the other two titles being Questprobe Featuring The Hulk and Questprobe Featuring Fantastic Four. The games were notable for their collaboration between Adventure International and Marvel Comics, bringing popular characters to the world of interactive text-based adventures.

While the graphics in Questprobe Featuring Spider-Man were limited to simple ASCII art and text descriptions, the game offered an engaging experience for fans of Spider-Man and adventure games. It challenged players to think strategically and solve puzzles using their wits and knowledge of the Spider-Man universe.

Collector's corner:

A Questprobe comic book tie-in was also released. Originally intended as a 12-issue miniseries, this series was canceled after issue #3 (November 1985) due to Adventure International's bankruptcy.
