New York City is in total disarray. An electrical plasma grid has covered the city from top to bottom, causing buildings to erode and the people to panic. There are already reports of death from the extreme heat, and there is no telling what else will happen if the pulsating grid continues to grip the city. Meanwhile, deep within his fortress, the enemy known as HYDRA laughs uncontrollably. The electrical plasma grid is his devious invention, and there is no one to stop his diabolical plans to control the largest city in the United States. Is there no hope?
The Amazing Spider-Man: Web of Fire lets you play the role of Marvel Comics' famous superhero as you swing through six locations around the Big Apple. Spidey has the ability to crawl, punch, kick and jump, as well as tap into his special powers to scale walls, swing from buildings, and fire his webbing. Enemies you'll face include HYDRA's cybernetic agents, capable of firing lightning orbs, and Dreadnoughts, eight-foot tall armored soldiers with superhuman strength.
Spider-Man will also have to look out for various probes, rocket launchers and futuristic fish that can wear down his health. Once Spidey reaches the end of a level, he'll confront one of the Enforcers, mercenary warriors including Dragonman, Thermite, Blitz, Vanisher, Eel, Tangle and Super-Adaptoid who would like nothing more than to knock the spider-sense out of our friendly neighborhood hero. Travel through the streets of New York, across the George Washington Bridge and deep within an Oil Wasteland and Power Plant before your final assault on the HYDRA Airship and Fortress. If things prove too difficult, Spider-Man can call upon his ally Daredevil, but only after rescuing him in each level. When needed, Daredevil will drop a club to give your foes a good wallop. Keep up the fight until you save New York City. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
