Spider-Man and Captain America in Doctor Doom’s Revenge (1989)

Spider-Man and Captain America in Doctor Doom’s Revenge was a side-scrolling computer game starring Marvel Comics’superheroes Spider-Man and Captain America battling a host of super-villains led by Doctor Doom. The game was available on Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, and ZX Spectrum.

The game featured an assortment of Marvel Comics super-villains through the course of the game, many of whom are relatively minor characters in the comic books: Eduardo Lobo, Grey Gargoyle, Machete, Boomerang, Oddball, Electro, Hobgoblin, Rhino, Batroc the Leaper, Zaran, Rattan (created specifically for the game), and finally Doctor Doom himself. Among the bosses included is also the Hulk (later revealed to be an illusion by Mysterio). The game’s manual provided biographies on each character in a style similar to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, and information about each character was used as a form of copy protection.

Marvel Comics also released a comic book that was only available in the game package. It illustrated the plot leading up to Spider-Man and Captain America’s mission to stop Dr. Doom.
