Up the Water Spout... is the twenty-fifth main mission in Marvel's Spider-Man. When Spider-Man arrives at the apartment of Charles Standish, the police are in a gunfight with the Inner Demons. Right away players must jump into fighting and help the police.
Once in the parking garage, players make their way through another group of Inner Demons. With the elevator no longer an option, they must then climb up the shaft to gain access to the penthouse. On the way up, they need to be careful of Demons looking out through open elevator doors. Pull them out and web them up. They also need to avoid the beams of light coming from the opposite direction in the second shaft. The third shaft introduces falling jets of fire and elevator cars. Staying off the main tracks is best.
Once the penthouse is entered, players need to use stealth to get around to the office where Standish is being held. Using the overhead beams is a good idea, grabbing thugs from above to web them up. Spider-Man cannot quite get the office door open once he gets to it, as a Demon swordsman enters to attack. Players need to dodge his attack, only counterattacking after he is finished. Attempting to web him before this will have no effect. More Demons will join the fight fairly quickly.
When Spider-Man eventually gains access to the office, his visit is short-lived. Though he manages to find out that the Inner Demons are searching through Oscorp's payroll, the arrival of a helicopter outside the window interrupts his conversation with Standish. It opens fire with a machine gun, forcing them to run, and Standish goes to the elevators, not knowing they no longer function. As an explosion rips through the penthouse, he and Spider-Man are thrown down the shaft.
Players must pay close attention to the on-screen prompts in order to quickly move debris out of the way and also slow, and finally catch Standish.
- The name is a reference to the classic nursery rhyme The Itsy Bitsy Spider.
