As far as the game itself goes, then yes, it's a terrific game. However, I recently redownloaded it, and much to my dismay, I found that there was no sound anymore. I remember that this issue existed at the launch of iOS 7, but I thought it had been fixed with a recent update, but I guess I thought wrong... Anyway, it's still a great game, but if the sound thing would bug you, now you know what to expect.
I'm definitely interested in the game's premise, since, apart from Batman and a few others, Spider-Man is the one comic book character that could justify a game centered around alternate versions of him (it's not for nothing that Marvel's Spider-event of the year, Spider-Verse, has pretty much that same premise), even though most of the alternate costumes of Spidey shown on that trailer aren't necessarily alternate versions of him, but rather different outfits that he wore at different periods of his "career" (the Future Foundation uniform, the Captain Universe uniform, the Big Time green one. Only the two Scarlet Spiders - Kaine and Ben - can be considered different characters). Spider-Man's particular power set might lend this endless runner - a genre that's been, pardon the pun, run to the ground lately - a different flavor, so it's got that going for it too.
However, and I hate to keep harping on this point, my acquiring this game at this point hinges on it having a constant requirement like other GL games: I realise it's probably Gameloft's policy at this point to include this requirement with any future games, and I'm probably setting myself up for disappointment here by hoping that this will be playable offline, but yeah, can't really justify the purchase (or download if it turns out to be F2P) if that's in there. Just my two cents...
I'll definitely be on the lookout for any news this week during E3!
