3. F.requently A.sked Q.uestions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Where are the spidey shops?
A. Look either on your mini-map or the in-game map to find it. On the mini-map
it looks like a green building with a star in the middle. On the in-game map it
looks like a dollar symbol.

Q. How come the combo/locomotion upgrade I want isn't there?
A. Check my spidey shop section. It will tell when you can buy the upgrade.

Q. What do all those weird symbols on the in-game map mean?
A. The trumpet symbol is the Daily Bugle.
   The house symbol with a little MJ in the middle is Mary Jane's apartment.
   The dollar symbols are the spidey shops.
   The circles with stars in the middle are races/challenges
   The camera icon is them movie theater.
   The square with the star in the middle is the fight arena.
   The green question marks are the hint markers.
   The little golden dots are the tokens.

Q. Where is the fight arena and the movie theater?
A. Check the in-game map for the icons.

Q. How do I use the stair steps kicks combo?
A. Okay, first go into spider reflexes (up on the d-pad) then press B, B, A.
   After you are in the air, mash the B button as fast as you can.

Q. I went to the spdey shops (green symbol on the mini map) and I cannot get
   in. What's up with that?
A. You might need to look around for the entrance. It looks like a door with
   either a closed or open sign. Now go inside

Q. How come the Super-Spider Missile and the Wallsprint duration upgrade level
   2 aren't in the spidey-shop?
A. Have you collected all the  tokens? No, well then do it. Only then will the
   two upgrades appear in the shop
