In the Demon's Hand Rocks GameFan Magazine

Screen Shot #1 

The January 2000 issue of GameFan magazine gives rave reviews to the new CapCom game "Spawn: In the Demon's Hand." GameFan states, "As arcades fall off in droves, something is needed to bring people back; something that can rekindle that dying ember into the raging inferno. Spawn is that game."

    "Spawn: In the Demon's Hand" is based on the popular comic book character of the same name, and was created in conjunction with Todd McFarlane Entertainment. Todd McFarlane and TME President Terry Fitzgerald are the game's executive producers. Spawn allows for up to four players to play the game simultaneously - using four linked coin-operated cabinets - for an all-out, four-way battle.

    Utilizing the power of Sega's Naomi board, Spawn features unmatched game graphics and intense action. All of the characters and backgrounds in Spawn are polygonal, enabling the characters to move any direction and view items from any angle. The in-game camera is positioned directly behind the character and changes at key moments, increasing the cinematic feel of the game. Spawn features 'Team versus Team' mode, which allows players to battle against friends or CPU teammates/opponents. Each character has its own unique ending that holds true to Todd McFarlane's storyline.

    "Capcom has developed an amazing game," said McFarlane, the creative force behind the Spawn character. "Their design team has truly captured all that is Spawn's world, including the central characters and story line and brought it to life in a really cool interactive 3-D environment."
