When building the SNES P/C list I tried to find info without success. I have little knowledge on SNES, but given the system supported multitap devices, I assumed that this title was some kind of special edition allowing up to 4 players simultaneously.

I've not tested the game, could it mean "For Man Version" and be some kind of hack?

I've found this bug report:

At least Nach is not surprised with the title.

I always assumed it was a 4-player version too.

i think players use the same controller though

EDIT:

Looks like it might be a hack or misnamed.
There is no information about it on the net like kazumi said.

Someone will have to play this (extremely difficult) game to find out if there are any differences(both versions).

no idea, sorry :/ never heard about it before

probably best asking Nach about it, after all it's in NSRT's database (I'm pretty sure I didn't add it...)

You're all thinking outside the ball-park. It refers to how many lives you start with.

Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade's Revenge (U) >>> 3 lives
Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade's Revenge (U) (4 Man Version) >>> 4 lives

Whether or not it's a hack is another question.

Could be a hack, could be a beta. I know the cf50 one is the legit one, though, because I redumped it.
