[[caption-width-right:264:"[[Film/{{Spider-Man Trilogy}} This could be the end of Spider-Man.]]"]]

-->'''[[{{Spider-Man}} Amazing Spider-Man]]''': O'hara! There's nothing left here to trash! You still there?
-->'''[[{{Marvel2099}} Spider-Man 2099]]''': Yeah. For the most part.
-->'''Amazing Spider-Man''': Did they turn into something else? Like, I don't know, kittens?
-->'''Spider-Man 2099''': Yeah. [[DeadpanSnarker Small, metal, robotic, killer kittens.]]
-->'''Amazing Spider-Man''': [[CuteKitten Aaaawwww...]]

''Spider-Man: Edge Of Time'' is a 2011 video game made by Beenox and published by {{Activision}}, and is the second game produced by the studios to be based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man (following on from their work on ''SpiderManShatteredDimensions''). In the game, players control both the [[MarvelUniverse Amazing Spider-Man]] and [[{{Marvel2099}} Spider-Man 2099]] in two connected timelines that follow the untimely death of Peter Parker. It featured all-new 'cause-and-effect' gameplay, where choices and actions can have unintended outcomes on the Spider-Man in the opposite timeline, and a storyline written by Creator/PeterDavid, co-creator of Spider-Man 2099.

The plot kicks off when evil Alchemax scientist Walker Sloan travels back to modern-day New York and uses his future tech to found Alchemax decades ahead of time. This causes Alchemax to become an even-'''more''' mega MegaCorp which has managed to TakeOverTheWorld. Spidey 2099, having gained wind of this plot, learns that a key factor is the death of Amazing Spidey and devises a way to communicate with Amazing Spider-Man to help stop Sloan.

----
!!This game provides examples of:

* ActorAllusion: Beyond the fact that both Miguel and Peter are voiced by two former Spider-man voice actors, Miguel looks similar to Peter from SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries and Peter looks like Peter from TheSpectacularSpiderMan underneath their masks.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: The Achievement/Trophy names have noticeable alliteration to them.
* AllThereInTheManual: The backstories of new characters like Walker Sloan, Black Cat 2099 and the CEO are all on their figures in the bonus gallery.
* AlternateContinuity: If the events present in the story are any indication, then ''Edge of Time'' seems to be ignoring "OneMoreDay" as it has Mary Jane still in a relationship with Peter (whether they're married or not, like their pre-OMD selves, is not explained). Elements from thev BrandNewDay era of the comics are used however (such as Anti-Venom)
** Justified in the altered timeline that Sloan's changes happened well before they even got together, which changed their whole history. However, this may still be the case in the regular timeline as Peter is seen trying to arrange a date with her before history changed.
** Interestingly, the "TemporalParadox" move pulls up flickering images of what seem to be Mary Jane and May Parker. Make of that what you will.
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: You can get various alternate costumes.
** Two more were announced after the game as being able to be unlocked through code: [[http://cdn.herohq.com/marvel/herohq/images/blog/LastSpider-Man2_LargeHiRes.png The Last Stand]] outfit, and [[http://cdn.herohq.com/marvel/herohq/images/blog/Poison_loRes_500.png the Poison costume]], with a few more to be announced on the way.
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: Anti-Venom apparently does succeed in bringing Amazing Spider-Man to his death (or at least very near it), but Spider-Man 2099 saves him with his future healing tech.]]
* BadFuture: As the result of Amazing Spider-Man's death.
* BigBadEnsemble: Walker Sloan/[[spoiler:Atrocity]] and [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Anti-Venom, due to mind control chips.]]
* ButterflyOfDoom[=/=]ConquerorFromTheFuture: Amazing Spider-Man's death in the present, at the hands of [[spoiler:Anti-Venom controlled by Walker Sloan, a scientist from the year 2099]] creates a CrapSackWorld, which is where Spider-Man 2099 comes in.
* CanonForeigner: Walker Sloan, the game's BigBad, Black Cat 2099, and [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099]]. [[spoiler: Atrocity, a combination of Sloan, Anti-Venom, and Doctor Octopus]]. Arcade, Overdrive, and Big Wheel are given 2099 counterparts for the Nintendo DS version.
* CloningBlues: Black Cat 2099 is a clone of the original Black Cat and there are other clones who serve as Mooks.
* ClothingDamage: Amazing Spider-Man's costume gets wrecked over the course of the game. Near the end, [[spoiler: his hair and ear are clearly visible.]]
* [[ClusterFBomb Cluster Shock Bomb]]: Spidey 2099 still has his potty mouth. Amazing Spidey lampshades this.
-->'''Spider-Man''': *crawling away weakly, Anti-Venom poised to strike* O’Hara…maybe I would’ve listened to you... if you didn’t say "shock" all the time.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: You knew this line was coming, but [[spoiler:evil CEO Peter Parker is the one who says it.]]
* CombatTentacles: Doctor Octopus is an aversion, [[DemotedToExtra generally just being an extra]] in the story. [[spoiler: Atrocity]], however...
* ContinuityNod: When Miguel contacted Peter via AppliedPhlebotinum telepathy, the latter asks, half-jokingly, if any other [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions "selves"]] [[HearingVoices are in his head too]]. [[note]]It's not clear if the two games are in the same continuity, or this version of Peter went through Shattered Dimensions, or only the original timeline Peter, or--''[[TimeyWimeyBall ouch!]]''[[/note]]
** It's given a second nod in the bonus costumes, with the [[{{Marvel 1602}} Spider-Man 1602]] and [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan New Ultimate]] costume referring to the "Crisis of the Shattered Dimensions".
** Also, there's the various archive rooms of Alchemax's CEO [[spoiler: aka Peter Parker 2099]]. They're filled with statues of Amazing Spider-Man's villains from ''Shattered Dimensions'', bearing the exact same designs.
** On his route to trying to stop Anti-Venom from killing Peter, one of the rooms Miguel passes through contains the body of Scorpion 2099 in a tank of chemicals. Scorpion was one of the opponents Miguel defeated in ''Shattered Dimensions''. [[BrickJoke Spider-Ham]] can also be found at the beginning of Chapter 15 in a similar tank.
** The Sandman can also be found in a chemical tank in "present day" Alchemax, whilst Peter is fleeing from Atrocity.
** On the desk of the CEO in his office, is the Tablet of Order and Chaos from the previous game.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: [[spoiler: The future version of Peter Parker, who runs Alchemax]]. He almost looks a bit like [[spoiler: Norman Osborn]].
* CrossCounter: [[spoiler:How Amazing Spider-Man's fight with Anti-Venom ends.]]
* CrossOver: A "truer" crossover than [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions the previous game]], the two Spider-Men are in direct contact with each other, their timelimes are "bleeding" together, and they each even spend a couple of levels in each others timeline. They still don't spend a lot of time in the same timeline simultaneously, though...
* {{Cyberpunk}}: 2099
* DamnYouMuscleMemory: If you're used to the ''Shattered Dimensions'' controls, you might have some initial adjustment trouble with the Wii version. Thankfully, TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything and you can switch to the previous game's controls.
* DarkerAndEdgier: While [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions the previous game]] had some dark moments, this game amps it up with a generally darker tone and more immediate threats of death and action consequences.
* DeadpanSnarker: Both Spider-Men bring this in full force.
** When [[spoiler: Spider-Man 2099 fights Anti-Venom and Anti-Venom proves to be unable to drain his powers due to them not being radiation-based]], Walker says to Spider-Man 2099's reveal:
--> '''Walker''': Didn't know, don't care.
* [[spoiler:DeathIsCheap: Amazing Spider-Man lampshades the frequency of this with comic book heroes after his own experience, saying he knows how CaptainAmerica feels. [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} And Jean Grey. And Colossus.]] He'd have kept going if Spider-Man 2099 hadn't stopped him.]]
* DownloadableContent: Four alternate costumes based on the "Identity Crisis" storyline.
* DuelingGames: ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' launched around the same time.
* EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler: The Atrocity.]]
* FallenHero: [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099.]]
* FinalBossPreview: A very subtle one. [[spoiler:In the room with the unlockable costume stands, you can find one in the ground with the armor the boss wears, which is also an unlockable costume.]]
* FingerTwitchingRevival: [[spoiler:Anti-Venom, after the CrossCounter with Amazing Spider-Man.]]
* [[spoiler: FutureMeScaresMe: The true BigBad: the CEO of Alchemax in 2099, Peter Parker.]]
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Walker Sloan
** TheDragon / TheBrute: Anti-Venom
** EvilGenius: Doctor Octopus
** DarkChick: Black Cat 2099
** [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMan: Peter Parker 2099]]
* FutureSlang: The all-purpose swear word "shock".
* HopelessBossFight: The first boss, Anti-Venom. [[spoiler:For Amazing Spider-Man. Spider-Man 2099 has better luck.]]
* HopeSpot: Amazing's battle with Anti-Venom begins like a normal boss fight and Amazing even tosses him through a door. [[spoiler: Then Anti-Venom nullifies his powers bringing an even fight into a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.]]
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler: Spider-Man tries this on Anti-Venom after learning about the control chips. It doesn't entirely work, but it does get Brock to fight their influence long enough to keep Spider-Man from getting killed right away.]]
* IronicEcho: Tends to be exchanged between the two Spider-Men, such as "do better than your best!".
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Sloane gives a nice monologue of his plan to his holo-assistant early in the game, unaware Spider-Man 2099 is watching from above.
** Averted later when Amazing Spider-Man meets the CEO of Alchamax, who offers to give him one, but he declines due to other matters. He does get around to giving a short one to Spider-Man 2099 later.
* LazyArtist: Thanks to the quick turn around from [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions the last Spidey game]], Activision's [[CashCowFranchise tendency to try and]] [[CallOfDuty milk their franchises]] [[GuitarHero for all they're worth]] ''and'' the film series reboot set to be released in 2012 (And likely with a tie-in game to boot), people were already voicing concerns that ''Edge Of Time'' was just going to be "''[[SpiderManShatteredDimensions Shattered Dimensions]]'' minus the [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate]] & [[SpiderManNoir Noir]] universes" within a day. Partially averted - early previews have noted that both Spider-Men have similar combat styles to ''Shattered Dimensions''; and screenshots show that whilst Spider-Man 2099 retains the art direction from ''Shattered Dimensions'', Amazing Spider-Man is now rendered in a similar manner, [[CaptainObvious albeit set in the present day]].
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall:
** "You want a Spider-Man who'll do everything you want? Go play a video game."
** Shortly before the final battle, the FinalBoss refers to it as a BossBattle. It doubles as an IncrediblyLamePun, since the FinalBoss is a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
* MeanwhileInTheFuture: Both Spider-Men are actually working together & ''talking'' to each other whilst in their home time periods - Amazing Spider-Man can destroy things so that they won't be there in the future, after said thing has created a problem for Spider-Man 2099.
** Justified by the creation of a second time gate, which linked the two moments in history and allowed for instantaneous changes.
* MonsterCloset: The 2099 levels ''adore'' this.
* MsFanservice: Black Cat 2099, of course.
* MythologyGag: Jameson speculates that people idolize Spider-Man enough to make a [[Theatre/SpiderManTurnOffTheDark Spider-Man musical]].
** When Spidey is first informed of quantum causality, he says "That's Amazing! Spectacular, even!"
** Spider Man 2099's swinging hearkens back to the 2000 Live Action films; there's even similar music.
** The New Ultimate costume notes that there's a new Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe.
* OhCrap: Amazing's reaction to seeing [[spoiler:Atrocity]].
-->'''Parker:''' "Oh... my God."
* OldSaveBonus: If you have a ''[[SpiderManShatteredDimensions Shattered Dimensions]]'' save file on the console when you boot up ''Edge of Time'', the game unlocks 10 (8, if you own a Wii) alternate costumes for the player to use.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: After Anti-Venom gains control of himself, he proceeds to attack Walker Sloan. Sloan runs to the time portal while Doc Ock is repairing it, and all three are tossed into the unstable portal. Out comes Atrocity, a monstrous combination of the three, similar to Monster Ock in the PS1 game.]]
* OrangeBlueContrast: Pictured above in the poster, also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIsDwhRWK1k all over the trailer]]. It seems blue represents the future, and orange the present. If so, prepare to see a lot of this trope.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Subverted when Amazing Spider-Man tries to use Spider-Man 2099's password, which is just "Lyla", to access Alchemax's archives and it doesn't work. It's then play straight when Spidey grumbles that he wishes it could just grant him access and it does.
** [[spoiler:And here lies a bit of Fridge Brilliance: WHY do you think the archive lets Peter Parker have the access he asked for?]]
* PoweredArmor[=/=]SpiderTank: [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099 pilots one of these during the final battle. Amazing Spider-Man speculates that Peter's powers have deteriorated over time, making the suit a necessity.]]
* RippleEffectProofMemory: Spider-Man 2099 gains this due to being in the time portal just after Walter went back in time. Amazing Spider-Man, of course, doesn't have this benefit.
* Really700YearsOld: Black Cat 2099 was given an anti-aging drug, resulting in her looking younger than she really is. [[spoiler: Same goes for Evil Peter.]]
* RuleOfThree: Lampshaded when Amazing Spider-Man has to retrieve three time gate parts, each controlled by three consoles.
-->'''Spider-Man 2099:''' The part will be safe to take after all three consoles around it are deactivated.
-->'''Amazing Spider-Man:''' Why do these things always come in threes?
-->'''Spider-Man 299:''' I have no idea.
-->'''Amazing Spider-Man:''' You know, that's going to bug me the rest of the day.
* SceneryPorn: The detail put into the outdoors can be ''astounding''.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: The Spider-Man of the year 2099 ''is'' trying to prevent the death of the present day Spider-Man...
** [[spoiler: It's also the motive of the true BigBad, Peter Parker's future self (the CEO of Alchemax in 2099), who wants to go back in time to fix all of the mistakes he made in the past.]]
* ShoutOut: Over the game, the two Spider-Man make references to CaptainAmerica, the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, ComicBook/IronMan and the Franchise/FantasticFour.
* SirSwearsalot: Spidey 2099 has kept his habit of saying "Shock" from [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions the last game.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Black Cat 2099's outfit, with a cleavage opening right down to her belly button.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: The CEO of Alchemax in 2099 (and true BigBad of the game) is [[FutureMeScaresMe Peter Parker's future self.]]]]
** Not that Amazing Spider-Man doesn't have fun with it. "[[ThisIsThePartWhere So this is where you make the big reveal]] and I say, Holy cow! Norman Osborn! Or the Kingpin! Jonah Jameson! C'mon, PLEASE be Jameson..."
* TechnoBabble: Amazing Spider-Man rattles this off while they look up Alchemax's archives, including [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration "uncoupling the Heisenberg compensators".]]
** The funny thing is, Spidey 2099 responds to each line with "of course I did" or "oh wait, I didn't," which actually causes Peter to stop and go [[{{Defictionalization}} "wait,]] [[InUniverse what?"]]
* TeleportingKeycardSquad: Usually literally.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Amazing Spider-Man isn't immediately inclined to believe some guy from the future claiming he's going to die because of his new workplace and Spider-Man 2099 is rather frustrated by his predecessor's inability to stay out of life-threatening situations. They get along better as the game progresses.
* TemporalParadox: Surprisingly, it's used as a ''special move'' in this game.
* TimeTravelTenseTrouble
* TimeyWimeyBall: A gameplay mechanic - Let's say Spidey 2099 is having trouble fighting an advanced mech, if Amazing Spidey destroys the prototype in his time line, the mech won't be there to fight Spidey 2099.
** Amazing Spidey often [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] all of the time travel logic that's tossed around in this game. Spidey 2099's response is basically "Look, do you want a two-hour lecture on quantum physics?"
** [[spoiler:Also a possible reason for why all the stuff destroyed 80 years ago weren't repaired or renewed in the 80 years between time periods. Peter knows what needs to be and what needs not to be when he is CEO in 2099.]]
* TitleDrop: In the endgame:
--> '''Miguel''': I'd rather not bring our deadline up against the Edge of Time!
* TonightSomeoneDies: The two Spider-Men are working to prevent the death of Amazing Spider-Man. The title screen even has Spider-Man 2099 carrying Peter's corpse.
* TheUsualAdversaries: [[spoiler:Atrocity's tentacles keep annoying both Spider-Men.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099]] starts ranting at Miguel as he is defeated.
* WhatAreRecords: Miguel is rather unfamiliar with past tech and terms, not knowing about the World Series, cell phones or even toasters.
* WhatTheHellHero: Both Spider-Man call each other out on this. Amazing Spidey chews out his future counterpart for allowing innocents to die by not doing anything while Spidey 2099 snarls at him about not focusing on fixing the time stream.
* YouFightLikeACow: It's ''{{Spider-Man}}'' for crying out loud, and he's being written by Creator/PeterDavid to boot.

* LazyArtist: Thanks to the quick turn around from [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions the last Spidey game]], Activision's [[CashCowFranchise tendency to try and]] [[CallOfDuty milk their franchises]] [[GuitarHero for all they're worth]] ''and'' the film series reboot set to be released in 2012 (And likely with a tie-in game to boot), people were already voicing concerns that ''Edge Of Time'' was just going to be "''[[SpiderManShatteredDimensions Shattered Dimensions]]'' minus the [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate]] & [[SpiderManNoir Noir]] universes" within a day. Partially averted - early previews have noted that both Spider-Men have similar combat styles to ''Shattered Dimensions''; and screenshots show that whilst Spider-Man 2099 retains the art direction from ''Shattered Dimensions'', Amazing Spider-Man is now rendered in a similar manner, [[CaptainObvious albeit set in the present day]].
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall:
** "You want a Spider-Man who'll do everything you want? Go play a video game."
** Shortly before the final battle, the FinalBoss refers to it as a BossBattle. It doubles as an IncrediblyLamePun, since the FinalBoss is a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
* MeanwhileInTheFuture: Both Spider-Men are actually working together & ''talking'' to each other whilst in their home time periods - Amazing Spider-Man can destroy things so that they won't be there in the future, after said thing has created a problem for Spider-Man 2099.
** Justified by the creation of a second time gate, which linked the two moments in history and allowed for instantaneous changes.
* MonsterCloset: The 2099 levels ''adore'' this.
* MsFanservice: Black Cat 2099, of course.
* MythologyGag: Jameson speculates that people idolize Spider-Man enough to make a [[Theatre/SpiderManTurnOffTheDark Spider-Man musical]].
** When Spidey is first informed of quantum causality, he says "That's Amazing! Spectacular, even!"
** Spider Man 2099's swinging hearkens back to the 2000 Live Action films; there's even similar music.
** The New Ultimate costume notes that there's a new Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe.
* OhCrap: Amazing's reaction to seeing [[spoiler:Atrocity]].
-->'''Parker:''' "Oh... my God."
* OldSaveBonus: If you have a ''[[SpiderManShatteredDimensions Shattered Dimensions]]'' save file on the console when you boot up ''Edge of Time'', the game unlocks 10 (8, if you own a Wii) alternate costumes for the player to use.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: After Anti-Venom gains control of himself, he proceeds to attack Walker Sloan. Sloan runs to the time portal while Doc Ock is repairing it, and all three are tossed into the unstable portal. Out comes Atrocity, a monstrous combination of the three, similar to Monster Ock in the PS1 game.]]
* OrangeBlueContrast: Pictured above in the poster, also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIsDwhRWK1k all over the trailer]]. It seems blue represents the future, and orange the present. If so, prepare to see a lot of this trope.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Subverted when Amazing Spider-Man tries to use Spider-Man 2099's password, which is just "Lyla", to access Alchemax's archives and it doesn't work. It's then play straight when Spidey grumbles that he wishes it could just grant him access and it does.
** [[spoiler:And here lies a bit of Fridge Brilliance: WHY do you think the archive lets Peter Parker have the access he asked for?]]
* PoweredArmor[=/=]SpiderTank: [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099 pilots one of these during the final battle. Amazing Spider-Man speculates that Peter's powers have deteriorated over time, making the suit a necessity.]]
* RippleEffectProofMemory: Spider-Man 2099 gains this due to being in the time portal just after Walter went back in time. Amazing Spider-Man, of course, doesn't have this benefit.
* Really700YearsOld: Black Cat 2099 was given an anti-aging drug, resulting in her looking younger than she really is. [[spoiler: Same goes for Evil Peter.]]
* RuleOfThree: Lampshaded when Amazing Spider-Man has to retrieve three time gate parts, each controlled by three consoles.
-->'''Spider-Man 2099:''' The part will be safe to take after all three consoles around it are deactivated.
-->'''Amazing Spider-Man:''' Why do these things always come in threes?
-->'''Spider-Man 299:''' I have no idea.
-->'''Amazing Spider-Man:''' You know, that's going to bug me the rest of the day.
* SceneryPorn: The detail put into the outdoors can be ''astounding''.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: The Spider-Man of the year 2099 ''is'' trying to prevent the death of the present day Spider-Man...
** [[spoiler: It's also the motive of the true BigBad, Peter Parker's future self (the CEO of Alchemax in 2099), who wants to go back in time to fix all of the mistakes he made in the past.]]
* ShoutOut: Over the game, the two Spider-Man make references to CaptainAmerica, the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, ComicBook/IronMan and the Franchise/FantasticFour.
* SirSwearsalot: Spidey 2099 has kept his habit of saying "Shock" from [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions the last game.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Black Cat 2099's outfit, with a cleavage opening right down to her belly button.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: The CEO of Alchemax in 2099 (and true BigBad of the game) is [[FutureMeScaresMe Peter Parker's future self.]]]]
** Not that Amazing Spider-Man doesn't have fun with it. "[[ThisIsThePartWhere So this is where you make the big reveal]] and I say, Holy cow! Norman Osborn! Or the Kingpin! Jonah Jameson! C'mon, PLEASE be Jameson..."
* TechnoBabble: Amazing Spider-Man rattles this off while they look up Alchemax's archives, including [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration "uncoupling the Heisenberg compensators".]]
** The funny thing is, Spidey 2099 responds to each line with "of course I did" or "oh wait, I didn't," which actually causes Peter to stop and go [[{{Defictionalization}} "wait,]] [[InUniverse what?"]]
* TeleportingKeycardSquad: Usually literally.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Amazing Spider-Man isn't immediately inclined to believe some guy from the future claiming he's going to die because of his new workplace and Spider-Man 2099 is rather frustrated by his predecessor's inability to stay out of life-threatening situations. They get along better as the game progresses.
* TemporalParadox: Surprisingly, it's used as a ''special move'' in this game.
* TimeTravelTenseTrouble
* TimeyWimeyBall: A gameplay mechanic - Let's say Spidey 2099 is having trouble fighting an advanced mech, if Amazing Spidey destroys the prototype in his time line, the mech won't be there to fight Spidey 2099.
** Amazing Spidey often [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] all of the time travel logic that's tossed around in this game. Spidey 2099's response is basically "Look, do you want a two-hour lecture on quantum physics?"
** [[spoiler:Also a possible reason for why all the stuff destroyed 80 years ago weren't repaired or renewed in the 80 years between time periods. Peter knows what needs to be and what needs not to be when he is CEO in 2099.]]
* TitleDrop: In the endgame:
--> '''Miguel''': I'd rather not bring our deadline up against the Edge of Time!
* TonightSomeoneDies: The two Spider-Men are working to prevent the death of Amazing Spider-Man. The title screen even has Spider-Man 2099 carrying Peter's corpse.
* TheUsualAdversaries: [[spoiler:Atrocity's tentacles keep annoying both Spider-Men.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Peter Parker 2099]] starts ranting at Miguel as he is defeated.
* WhatAreRecords: Miguel is rather unfamiliar with past tech and terms, not knowing about the World Series, cell phones or even toasters.
* WhatTheHellHero: Both Spider-Man call each other out on this. Amazing Spidey chews out his future counterpart for allowing innocents to die by not doing anything while Spidey 2099 snarls at him about not focusing on fixing the time stream.
* YouFightLikeACow: It's ''{{Spider-Man}}'' for crying out loud, and he's being written by Creator/PeterDavid to boot.

* ContinuityNod: When Miguel contacted Peter via AppliedPhlebotinum telepathy, the latter asks, half-jokingly, if any other [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions "selves"]] [[HearingVoices are in his head too]]. [[hottip:*:It's not clear if the two games are in the same continuity, or this version of Peter went through Shattered Dimensions, or only the original timeline Peter, or--''[[TimeyWimeyBall ouch!]]''

''Spider-Man: Edge Of Time'' is a 2011 video game made by Beenox and published by {{Activision}}, and is the second game produced by the studios to be based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man (following on from their work on ''SpiderManShatteredDimensions''). In the game, players control both the [[MarvelUniverse Amazing Spider-Man]] and [[{{Marvel2099}} Spider-Man 2099]] in two connected timelines that follow the untimely death of Peter Parker. It featured all-new 'cause-and-effect' gameplay, where choices and actions can have unintended outcomes on the Spider-Man in the opposite timeline, and a storyline written by PeterDavid, co-creator of Spider-Man 2099.

** [[spoiler:Also a possible reason for why all the stuff destroyed 80 years ago weren't repaired or renewed in the 80 years between time periods. Peter knows what needs to be and what needs not to be when he is Ceo in 2099.]]
