Developed by French mobile gaming company Gameloft, Spider-Man Unlimited is a new endless runner available on iOS starring Marvel Comic’s web-slinging superhero.

It also has striking, hand-drawn artwork that makes the experience feel authentic to the Spider-Man comic book series. Now that the game has launched on the App Store, the reviews are starting to roll in.

Here is a look at what critics are saying about the new Spider-Man game.

Modojo: Surprisingly, Gameloft’s Spider-Man Unlimited is a decent runner with a progression system and narrative tiers that allow it to transcend its status as F2P clone that you’ve seen millions of times over. In fact, with future updates, it may even continue to improve. (read the full review)

TouchArcade: I think Spidey fans and runner fans should definitely check out Spider-Man Unlimited simply because it does so much right. (read the full review)
