Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six is a platforming game released for the NES, Sega Master System, and Sega Game Gear. In this game, you take the role of Spider-Man, trying to take out six different bad guys. Along the way, you will need to find some items in order to access the next area. The game has been noted for its terrible gameplay. Only three people worked on this game. This game looks like something that LJN rushed in order to make quick money.

Music

While this game's music may not be too popular, the people that have listened to it say that they really enjoyed it. The music was composed by the legendary David Whittaker of Commodore 64 fame. While there's only two stage themes, and they can get a little irritating after playing the game for a while, they fit the theme of the game and sound action-packed. Whittaker also used one of the square channels for drums, which is his only NES game that does that. The music was programmed by Whittaker himself using his own audio driver. The music is originally supposed to be played a half step lower in its original PAL format, but David Whittaker's audio driver made it so when the game was ported to NTSC, the music was tuned sharp and raised a half step. This is something that Whittaker probably was not aware of.

Between the NES, SMS, and GG versions of the soundtrack, the NES version is most people's favorite since the NES had better sound quality than the Sega Master System/Game Gear.
