Chapter 3 - Punctuality is the Thief of Time
To-Do List: Go to the pizza parlor. Earn 2,000 more hero points.
The pizza parlor is marked on your screen by the white symbol. You can head there at any time during the chapter to complete the to-do list item. But you'll also have to earn 2,000 hero points to meet the requirements to continue on with the main storyline. You'll earn hero points by helping citizens in distress, combating random crimes, finding hidden tokens, completing challenges, and other tasks.
But when the chapter opens, Peter Parker realizes he's late for Dr. Conners' class. A blue symbol appears; web-sling through the city to that location. There isn't a time limit so don't feel the need to hurry to the location. Practice your web-slinging techniques and approach the blue symbol.
You soon realize the blue symbol isn't Dr. Conners' class. It's a wounded police officer. A group of hoodlums are making off with an important case. Battle the thugs. Utilize spider reflexes to gain a quick upper hand against the crew. Use the attack and web buttons in conjunction to perfect various combinations and different web attacks. Grab the briefcase and return it to its owner.
Class isn't over. You can still make it. Resume course to the new blue symbol. Reach the ledge holding the symbol. Press the action button to change from Spider-Man to Peter Parker and automatically find Dr. Conners...too late.
Listen to the tutorial about citizens in distress. Speak with a citizen and help solve their problem. These are random elements to help you earn the hero points required to reach the next chapter (as well as purchase items in the upgrade store).
After reaching a certain level of hero points, Peter remembers he was supposed to meet his friends Harry and Mary Jane this evening. A blue symbol appears; web-sling to its location. Get to the symbol on top of the building and change out of your Spider-Man garb. Watch the cut scene of Peter, Harry, and MJ.
Upon the scene's conclusion, resume gathering hero points by exploring for tokens or helping citizens in distress. Once you have acquired at least 2,000 hero points, proceed to the white symbol marking the pizza parlor. It's along the western bank near Lower West Side.
When you reach the pizza parlor, Peter remembers he's late...again! He promised he'd meet Mary Jane for a birthday dinner. Press sprint and start web-slinging toward the blue symbol indicating your new destination. Reach the spot, change back into Peter Parker, and initiate the cut scene with MJ. Peter's spider sense must have tingled a bit; he spots a suspicious group entering a nearby art gallery.
After speaking with Mary Jane, approach the blue symbol to enter the gallery. There are criminals on the lower and upper floors. Concentrate on a single small group at once. For instance, charge to the left side of the bottom floor. Battle a group of three thugs. Use spider reflexes at close-range and your web attack button at long-range (to dislodge weapons or stun enemies).
Once you've defeated the group, proceed to the other side of the lower gallery and pummel the three thugs hanging out there. Jump up to the second floor or even take the stairs. Pound the final two thugs senseless. When you're finished, meet Black Cat.
She doesn't hang around for very long. Black Cat leaves the scene and Spider-Man must maintain pursuit. This is the first of several "keep up with Black Cat" missions. A meter at the top of the screen reveals your proximity to Black Cat. If Spidey's symbol moves to the far left, you're too far behind and the mission must be replayed. Remain close to Black Cat through sprinting, jumping, and quick web-slinging. She makes a few pit stops along the way; this gives you ample time to catch up.
If you get disoriented, look for her distinct white trail or just follow the arrow that surrounds Spider-Man. Move in that direction and remain as high as possible (the higher you are, the easier it is to spot Black Cat's trail). Use charged jumps to cross rooftops. If you miss the rooftop, use the attach to wall button to wall-climb to the rooftop (combine it with sprint and even jump) and resume course. Follow Black Cat until the cut scene interrupts the chase. Black Cat disappears for good...for now.
