When I first saw it, I was thinking it was the Spider Solitary game, and then I realized oh no, it’s actually a spider game. Well I really don’t like spiders, not even little animated ones, but the game was editors choice so I though I might as well check it out, and boy am I glad I did!
It’s a little cute little puzzle game by Tiger Style Productions based on “You are a spider, and you spin web with your finger on the screen and you eat flies.”
And that basic premiss makes for a really run game where you get to play a spider hoping around spinning webs to catch the flys. Simply swipe to jump, to lay a line tap the spider and the jump. Once you close it in you create a web that will hopefully be placed properly that the flies in the area will fly into it, so you can then go gobble them up.
The game mechanics work very well and I haven’t found any real time pressure in the first few levels that I’ve played so far. So it’s nice an casual, and very easy to pick up. I can see me being stuck in a line somewhere and pulling out the game to play a level or two.
There is a deeper story in the game. I haven’t gotten to dive into due to the limited time offer I wanted to get this out there for you as quick as possible. Spider is available on iOS in the App Store and is FREE for a limited time!
