The Amazing Spider-Man: Web of Fire is a video game released for the Sega 32X and based on the popular Marvel Comics character Spider-Man. It was the last game released for the 32X system in North America. With a rumored 1,500 print run it is hard to find, commonly selling on eBay for more than 400 US dollars.[citation needed]

The player controls Spider-Man through six stages of side-scrolling levels as he goes up against the Neo-Nazi organization H.Y.D.R.A. and their hired hand the New Enforcers. Hydra has taken all of New York hostage as they have set up generators throughout the city which has caused a giant electrical grid to be placed over New York trapping its citizens. The New Enforcers are each guarding the generators to make sure Hydra's plans go uninterrupted. At the end of the levels Spider-Man must go up against each member of the New Enforcers while destroying each generator. The bosses are Dragon Man, The Eel, Thermite, Blitz, Tangle, and Super-Adaptoid. Vanisher also appears although he is not a boss. The player can also get assistance from fellow superhero Daredevil by collecting "DD" tokens.

Although poorly received by critics, its rarity and exclusivity to the 32X platform has made it one of the most coveted games in 32X collector circles.
