When it comes to video game releases, Spider-Man has had his fair share of ups and downs throughout history.

In addition to platformers and beat ’em ups, Spider-Man has also appeared in action-adventure and open-world games.

All the Spider-Man games that have been released in order of release date, with Spider-Man as the main character, will be highlighted here.

If Sony or Marvel makes any announcements about impending Spider-Man releases, we’ll be sure to update this list.


When did it come out?

For the Atari 2600 and the Magnavox

A vertical scrolling action game featuring Spider-Man for Atari and Magnavox systems marked the character’s first appearance in the medium. 1982’s Spider-Man was the first time that gamers were able to handle the web-slinging superhero directly.

Shooting and disarming explosive devices and evading adversaries are all part of the game’s objectives as you scale a structure. To diffuse a “super-bomb,” you had to evade the Green Goblin for the duration of your ascent.

If you were successful, the game would reward you with equal levels with the same objectives if you were successful. It was regarded impressive at the time since Spider-Man had such excellent aesthetics despite the game’s repetitious gameplay.

Questprobe: Spider-Man

Originally released in 1984.

Atari 2600, Commodore 64, Apple II, and DOS

As well as The Hulk and The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man gets his own text adventure game in the 1980s. A text-based adventure game, Adventure International’s Questprobe: Spider-Man asked you to guide Spider-Man through a variety of story-based situations.

Adventure International went out of business shortly after releasing the first three episodes of Questprobe, which was originally intended to be a twelve-part series. This led to the abandonment of all future projects, including an already-coded, cancelled X-Men game.

Spider-Man and Captain America in Doctor Doom’s Revenge

When did it come out?

Atari 2600, Atari 2600, Commodore 64, and DOS

A side-scrolling action game for the Amiga, Atari, and Commodore 64 was the third game to use the web crawler, coming out in 1989. There, players could switch between Spider-Man and Captain America to take on a wide range of adversaries from the respective heroes’ backstories.

Doctor Doom’s Revenge was criticized for its repetitious fighting, but lauded for its bright and vibrant palette. An original character named Rattan, a kung-fu master, appears as one of the game’s villains. The game also had an unique comic inside the game casing, which detailed the events leading up to the game’s scenario.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Date of Publication: 1990

Atari 2600, Atari 2600, Commodore 64, and DOS

In 1990, Spider-Man fans were given another side-scrolling platformer in which the hero was attempting to rescue his wife, Mary Jane, from an evil organization. Basically, she was abducted by Mysterio, and now Spider-Man must chase him down through a succession of movie-themed levels inspired by Mysterio’s love of the movies.

Animations and controls were poor, and gameplay was a little lacking. After launching on the Amiga, The Amazing Spider-Man was later ported to other platforms.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Date of Publication: 1990

The Game Boy is the only platform supported.

The Amazing Spider-Man for the Game Boy, launched in 1990, is not to be confused with the Amiga game of the same name. Despite the fact that the plot remained the same, the game was arranged in a somewhat different way.

To combat Mysterio, gamers would also face Scorpion, Dr. Octopus, Venom and other villains. Fans of The Amazing Spider-Man remember the game’s responsive controls and, for the time, eye-popping graphics. The Game Boy version of the game would go on to have two sequels.

The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin

Originally released in 1991.

Sega CD, Master System, Mega Drive/Genesis

The Amazing Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin was a side-scrolling action game that had Spider-Man attempting to save Mary Jane from the grips of a supervillain, this time Venom. However, the hero must also clear his identity after being accused of stealing a nuclear bomb from Kingpin.

Consequently, he must not only rescue his wife but also discover various keys that can disable the bomb within the next twenty-four hours. Every platform that Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin has been released on has had a different take on the game’s level design and gameplay mechanics. Marvel’s licensing agreement with Sega was renewed after this game’s success.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The film was released in 1992.

The Game Boy is the only platform supported.

A direct sequel to the 1990 Game Boy title, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sees Spider-Man accused of bank robbery again again. A sequence of stages and bosses are required for the hero to clear his identity.

They also acquired things that were useful in solving riddles in each level along the way. There were a lot of complaints about the game’s control layout, gameplay difficulty spikes, and lack of in-game save options.

Spider-Man: Return Of The Sinister Six

Date of Publication: October 22, 1992

The NES, Master System, and Game Gear are all platforms.

Spider-Man: Return Of The Sinister Six was the first NES game to feature the web crawler in 1992. Again, the game required players to go through stages and face off against a boss at the end of each one.

So it didn’t attract much attention or fanfare because it was released at the end of NES’s existence. People who played the game were able to deal with the game’s poor aesthetics, generic gameplay, and ridiculous difficulty.

Spider-Man And The X-Men In Arcade’s Revenge

When did it come out?

Sega Genesis/Genesis, Game Gear, and Game Boy Advance

In Arcade’s Revenge for the SNES, Spider-Man would enter the 16-bit era just a month later. To begin, you take on the role of Spider-Man and travel about the city disarming bombs. As it turns out, the X-Men have been kidnapped by the evil Arcade.

For each of the four X-Men you can then play as (Storm Wolverine Cyclops and Gambit). It’s remembered for giving players access to a larger variety of Spider-powers Man’s than prior games in the series.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3: Invasion of the Spider Slayers

Date of Publication: 1993

The Game Boy is the only platform supported.

Last in the Game Boy trilogy, Invasion of the Spider Slayers came out around the same time as Spider Slayer’s comic book series. Thus, the game’s narrative largely followed the plot of the comics.

It was criticized by critics despite the high quality of the story, mostly because to the limits of the then-aging Game Boy’s hardware, which was a major factor. As if it wasn’t bad enough, gamers couldn’t save their progress in-game.

The Amazing Spider-Man: Lethal Foes

March 17, 1994 was the release date.

SNES (Super Famicom)

One of the first Spider-Man games with player-controlled swinging mechanics was Lethal Foes, released only in Japan. It was a step in the right direction, even though it was a long way from where we are now.

As you progressed through the game’s several levels, you had to race against the clock to fight the game’s various bosses. Apart than that, it plays like a Japanese-only side-scrolling action game from the 1990s.

Spider-Man And Venom: Maximum Carnage

In the year 1994, on the 16th of September,

Sega Genesis and SNES consoles

The events of the Carnage narrative that was going place in the comics at the time are carefully followed in Maximum Carnage. There are also digital transfers of actual chunks of the comic books in some of the game’s cutscenes.

Players would flip between controlling Spider-Man and Venom as they battled Carnage and his gang of supervillains in the game. Similar to the Double Dragon beat ’em up series, players were able to gather power-ups that unlocked new Marvel heroes to help them out in combat.

Spider-Man: The Animated Series

On February 13, 1995, the CD was released.

Sega Genesis and SNES consoles

1995’s Spider-Man was inspired by the popular animated series of the same name and used a similar style of imagery. In addition to six side-scrolling levels and nearly twenty boss bouts, the game has a surprising amount of variety.

Only Spider-Man could be controlled in the game, however the Fantastic Four made a brief appearance in the narrative. Spidey made his video game debut on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Sega Genesis (Genesis).

Venom/Spider-Man: Separation Anxiety

November 1995 was the release date for this film.

the SNES, the Mega Drive/Genesis, and the personal computer

Spider-Man comics at the time included a Venom storyline called “Separation Anxiety,” a direct sequel to “Maximum Carnage.” With either Spider-Man or Venom in control of either player, the two faced off against Carnage once more in a side-scrolling beat ’em up.

Various Marvel heroes appeared in the form of power-ups that would aid the player in their journey. Critics complained about the game’s odd title and lack of gameplay improvements in Separation Anxiety, which wasn’t as popular as the original.

Spider-Man: Web of Fire

In March of 1996, the film was released.

Sega Genesis 32X and other retro gaming systems

Sega’s 32X system was unique in that Web of Fire was the only Spider-Man game to be released on it, and it was also the last to be released in North America. It’s a side-scrolling action-platformer with six levels and a boss fight at the end of each one.

While H.Y.D.R.A. and the New Enforcers were the primary villains in Web of Fire, the game also features a number of new foes. Despite the game’s poor sales, it has developed a devoted following over time.


The 30th of August, 2000 is the scheduled release date.

Platforms include PlayStation, Nintendo 64, Game Boy, Dreamcast, and personal computer.

It wasn’t until the PlayStation and the Nintendo 64 that Spidey returned to video games. Web crawling has never been more immersive as it was in Spider-first Man’s 3D release in 2000.

Players could now freely swing around in 3D settings utilizing Spider-webs Man’s for the first time. However, due to technical limitations, a persistent “fog” pervaded the entire planet. Spider-Man creator Stan Lee served as narrator for the game’s story and cast of characters.

Evolution of Spider-Man Games Graphics (2001 - 2018) | PC* and PS4 - 248

Spider-Man 2: The Sinister Six

May 30, 2001 was the release date.

Color, Game Boy Advance

Spider-Man: The Sinister Six is a direct sequel to Spider-Man on the Game Boy Color, released in 2000, and it has the web-slinger taking on the infamous Sinister Six once more. Each stage culminates in a battle with a boss before players face off against Dr. Octopus and rescue Aunt May.

It was similar to previous Spider-Man games for portable devices, except it had the ability to climb up the side of some buildings. There was also an odd unlockable mini-game in which Spider-Man and Dr. Octopus worked together to save teddy bears from a burning building.

Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro

On October 19, 2001, the game was released

PlayStation and Xbox

Only on the PlayStation would Enter Electro, a direct sequel to Spider-Man from 2000, make its debut. Spider-mission Man’s is to stop Electro from using the Bio-Nexus Device, a power source. He also confronts a variety of villains from his rogue’s gallery, such as Hammerhead, Sandman, Shocker, and Lizard, throughout the course of the video game.

Aside from the X-Men appearing on occasion to assist Spider-Man, the game’s web-swinging capabilities have also been improved. Intriguingly, the original version featured a final showdown atop New York City’s famed twin towers. Immediately after 9/11, copies of the game were taken off the market, and this part was fully reworked.

Spider-Man: Mysterio’s Menace

On September 19, 2001, it was released.

Playstation 3 and Xbox 360

A side-scrolling beat ’em up with an additional level compared to prior releases, Spider-Man made his Game Boy Advance debut in Mysterio’s Menace. Most portable Spider-Man games have players navigating 2D levels that end in boss confrontations. This one is no exception.

Symbiote suits, which regenerate health, were introduced as a new weapon and suit upgrade in the Mysterio’s Menace expansion. With its vivid colors and flowing animations receiving the greatest accolades, it was a resounding success.

Spider-Man: The Movie

Date of Release: 16 April 2002

Platforms: Game Boy Advance, Nintendo GameCube, Personal Computer, PlayStation 2, and Xbox

To coincide with the debut of the live-action film, a 3D action game called Spider-Man: The Movie was released, largely following the storyline of the blockbuster film but adding new enemies and plot beats. It was possible to swing around the city’s rooftops as well as play in both indoor and outdoor settings.

While many movie tie-ins fail to meet expectations, Spider-Man was a huge hit with fans and critics alike. In addition to Bruce Campbell’s narration, the game features a plethora of secret unlockables, various costumes, and playable characters.

Spider-Man 2

When: Sunday, 28th of June, 2004

GBA, GameCube, PC, PlayStation 2 & Xbox

Spider-Man returned to the video game industry after a few more years, this time with a sequel to Spider-Man 2 based on the film. The open-world New York City in the game was considerably more fully realized.

Additionally, gamers might take on side missions, uncover hidden secrets, or simply roam about at will. As a result, the performance of Spider-Man 2 varied greatly from one system to another at the time of release.

Ultimate Spider-Man

On September 22, 2005, the game was released.

Platforms: Game Boy Advance, Nintendo GameCube, Personal Computer, PlayStation 2, and Xbox

This was another open-world game that used a greatly stylized graphic style based on the Spider-Man character’s comic book counterpart. It was possible for gamers to play as either Spider-Man or Venom while completing story tasks in Manhattan.

Side quests and racing challenges against the Shocker and the Human Torch were also included in the game. Due to the cartoony aesthetics, it was well-received on all platforms and has held up well over time.

Spider-Man: Battle for New York

November 14, 2006 is the release date.

GBA and Nintendo DS are supported.

In a plot centered on the Green Goblin, Battle for New York takes inspiration from the stylised art style of the Ultimate comics.

Spider-Man or Green Goblin are both playable characters in this side-scrolling platformer. Players on the DS could complete various activities by swiping their fingers across the screen.

Spider-Man 3

May 4, 2007 was the release date.

Playstation 2 and 3, PlayStation 3 and 4, Wii and Xbox 360

Following in the footsteps of previous open-world games, Spider-Man 3 was released at the same time as the third film in the Sam Raimi trilogy. The game’s surroundings were expanded and its power set was expanded, but there were several flaws as well.

Despite this, the game received a mixed reception from reviews. Due to Spidey’s long-term presence in the public eye — on and off the screen — this can be linked to general franchise fatigue.

Spider-Man: Friend or Foe

To Be Released On: October 2, 2007

Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, Wii, Xbox 360

Spider-universe Man’s was shaken up in Friend or Foe. For starters, many of Spider-foes Man’s would turn into allies once he vanquished them. For the Ultimate comics aesthetic, the game tried to combine the beat em up action of prior Spiderman games with the more stylized design of the game.

Finally, a 3D action game that could be played on any home system at the time was created. Criticisms were leveled at the game’s childish story, shaky controls, and shoddy graphics, among other things.

Spider-Man: Web Of Shadows

On October 21, 2008, it was released.

PC, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii, and Xbox 360

Spider-Man films were not a feature of Web of Shadows, which instead concentrated on the alien symbiote taking over New York City. It’s up to Spider-Man to save the city and fight off other baddies while he’s at it!

When Spider-Man runs into Wolverine from the X-Men, the villainous avenger accuses him of being a villain himself. The game’s overall lack of polish and clunky controls garnered negative reviews.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

Date of Release: 7 September, 2010

Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360

When the Tablet of Order and Chaos is shattered, a chain reaction occurs across numerous dimensions, and this is the story that Shattered Dimensions tells. This mashes up four different Spider-Mans from different realities.

All four Spider-Man incarnations are playable characters, each with their own distinct playstyles and skills. Many fans still consider Shattered Dimensions to be the best game in the series to date.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time

When is it coming out?

Platforms: Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, and Xbox One

After the popularity of Shattered Dimensions, Beenox attempted to replicate that success, but they didn’t fare as well the second time around. Spider-Man 2099 and Amazing Spider-Man work together to repair a rift in time in Edge of Tomorrow, a new Spider-Man movie.

As a result of the game’s unique cause and effect mechanic, one Spider-Man could influence the universe of another Spider-Man. Aside from praise for the plot, gamers expressed displeasure with the game’s general quality and repetitious gameplay.

The Amazing Spider-Man

On June 26, 2012, the album was released.

Platforms: Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, and Xbox One

The Amazing Spider-Man is a 3D open-world video game based on the 2012 movie of the same name. Rhino, Lizard, and Scorpion appear in the tale, which takes place many months after the events in the film.

It was generally well-received, with the game’s ridiculously low difficulty level being the most common critique.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

On April 17, 2014, it was released.

PC, 3DS, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, and iOS are all platforms that can be utilized.

AS2 was based on the film of the same name, just like 2012’s Amazing Spider-Man. Peter Parker, now two years into his web-crawling career, returns to track down the person responsible for the murder of his Uncle Ben in a massive 3D open-world.

It was Beenox’s final attempt at a Spider-Man game, and it failed miserably.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Release Date: 7th of September, 2018

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5

This reimagining of the Spider-Man mythos by Marvel Studios hits the proper balance between paying homage to Spidey’s past appearances in comic books, video games, and films. Maintaining its predecessors’ open-world gameplay, Spider-Man 2 features a more mature Peter Parker juggling his personal life with his love of web-slinging.

As a result of its success, both commercially and critically, it has been dubbed the “Best Super Hero Game of All Time” by some. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may be lacking in novelty, but it has the best web-swinging physics of any other Spider-Man game to date.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

November 12, 2020 is the release date.

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5

A sequel to the Insomniac game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales moves the focus from Peter Parker to his youthful protégé. Miles is forced to assume the role of web-slinging superhero when Peter goes missing.

As Miles learns to use his skills and accept his new role, the sequel keeps the open-world design from the first while telling a new story. Miles Morales is the first Spider-Man game to be released alongside a new console.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

TBD in the year 2023

PS5 is the system I use.

Sony and Insomniac recently introduced the upcoming Spider-Man film, but fans will have to wait until 2023 before they can play it.

No details on the plot or new gameplay mechanics have been revealed as of yet, but we do know that Kraven the Hunter and Venom will all be making appearances.

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem (2010)

On the 1st of September, 2010

Gameloft is the company behind this title.

Gameloft is the publisher.

Playable on Android and iOS devices only, Total Mayhem is an action-adventure game. The narrative takes place in the Marvel Ultimate Universe, where Spider-Man is once again pitted against a slew of villains. To be fair, the plot is quite conventional for a low-budget mobile game.

Although Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem was available on the App Store and Google Play Store in its original form, it can no longer be purchased there due to its removal. You’ll need to download an apk file to play it.

Spider-Man: Toxic City (2009)

July 29, 2009 is the release date.

Gameloft is the company behind this title.

Gameloft is the publisher.

After so many years of success, it was inevitable that Spidey would get his own mobile game at some point. Although it happened, few people outside of those who had already acquired a BlackBerry at the time know about the game. Because everyone who owns one has a copy of Spider-Man: Toxic City in their possession. If not, there were already rip-offs and clones out there.

Spider-Man: Mysterio’s Menace (2001)

On September 19, 2001, it was released.

Vicarious Visions is the developer.

Activision is the publisher of this game

Spidey’s entry on the GBA was long overdue after he had previously appeared on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color. It’s a side-scrolling beat ’em up, as you might think. Fortunately, compared to previous entries, this one comes with a lot more levels.

Mysterio’s Menace introduces the possibility to upgrade your weapon and outfit, unlike prior side-scrolling Mysterio games. New gameplay mechanisms, such as the ability to restock your health, were also incorporated. An entertaining gameplay and excellent animation on a GBA handheld drew praise from reviews for Mysterio’s Menace, which was released in 2008.

Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro (2001)

Release Date: 26 August 2001

Vicarious Visions is the developer.

Activision is the publisher of this game

Another Spider-Man sequel, except this time it’s a direct port of the 2000s PlayStation Spider-Man. Spidey returns to stop Electro from deploying the Bio-Nexus Device, picking up where the original game left off. Other supervillains will stand in the path of our web-swinging hero’s adventure. Sandman, Lizard, Shocker, and Hammerhead are just a few examples.

This time, he’s not alone. Several X-Men will occasionally turn up to provide him a helping hand. A final battle on top of New York City’s twin towers was included in the original release of this game. It was later banned from being sold following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That area had to be totally rewritten by the programmers as a result.

Venom/Spider-Man: Separation Anxiety (1995)

November 1995 was the release date for this film.

the company behind it is known as Software Creations

Acclaim Entertainment is the publisher of this work.

Spider-Man comics’ Venom storyline is the inspiration for Maximum Carnage’s sequel, Separation Anxiety.

There are a lot of similarities between this game and Maximum Carnage. Carnage must be defeated once more, and this time Spidey and Venom must work together. Fortunately, figures like Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, and Daredevil appear as cameos.

Although the game was well-received, it wasn’t as popular as its predecessor. Repetitive gameplay, a lack of cutscenes, and a convoluted plot were cited by critics.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3: Invasion of the Spider-Slayers (1993)

Date of Publication: 1993

It’s rare for a developer

LJN, Nintendo are the publishers.

Game Boy’s third and last installment in the series. It came out around the same time as the Spider-Slayer comic book, if not the same day.

Reviewers and fans alike criticized the game’s aesthetics, despite it being regarded the greatest in the series. Furthermore, the developers failed to fix the save-in-game bug. Sadly, this entry is often overlooked because of its problems.

Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge (1992)

When did it come out?

the company behind it is known as Software Creations

LJN (SNES), Flying Edge (Sega Genesis, Game Gear) and Acclaim Entertainment (Sega Genesis, Game Gear)

Spider-Man & X-Men : Arcade's Revenge [USA] - Super Nintendo (SNES) rom download | WoWroms.com

As we continue our exploration of side-scrolling video games, we find that the SNES has one, too. It begins with Spider-Man scurrying throughout the city until he spots Wolverine, Cyclops, Gambit et al missing from the city’s streets. You can play as four kidnapped X-Men as you advance through the game.

This entry received an average to mediocre amount of feedback from reviewers. The visuals and audio were acclaimed, but the controls were slammed.


Is there any Spider-Man games?

Developed by Insomniac Games and distributed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, Marvel’s Spider-Man is a 2018 action-adventure game.

Which is the latest Spider-Man game for PC?

Be the best you can be. Be who you are. As a teenager, Miles Morales is adjusting to his new home and following in the footsteps of his mentor, Peter Parker, as a new Spider-Man in the current Marvel comics storyline.

Do I have to play Spider-Man before Miles Morales?

Definitely. It’s a fantastic game, and Miles Morales will undoubtedly benefit from it.

Who is the best Spider-Man?

That’s Tom Holland, right there. It’s nearly impossible to improve on the newest live-action Spider-Man actor. In his 25th year, Tom Holland is still a credible Peter Parker as a precocious teenager.
