One of the villains in the game is the Beetle

Spider-Man's web-swinging abilities can be used to get to various places. Each level has a timed checkpoint within each level, as players must reach their destination within the time limit. Spider-Man battles various villains throughout the game – Spider-Slayers, Beetle, Lizard, Mysterio, Alistair Smythe, Green Goblin, Scorpion, Venom, Doctor Octopus, and Carnage. In addition friendly characters including Human Torch, Speedball, and Iron Fist appear in cutscenes in between levels.

Additional content was unlocked by scanning barcodes with Barcode Battler II connected via a "Barcode Battler II Interface".
