Spyder is a puzzle adventure where you play as Agent 8, a small 6-legged spider-robot that was designed by a British spy agency for attempting to stop an evil organization. You take on different challenges using your special abilities in a game that blends quick thinking with decterity.

With sticky feet you get to defy gravity by crawling around on any surface, and you have a small arsenal of tools for solving the puzzles in each level. Environments are quite diverse, with different objectives and challenges in each. Guided by a remote instructor you will hack computers, meddle with security systems, defuse bombs and much more. Gameplay is non-violent and the tone of the game is light-hearted and comical with an occasional bit of suspense.

Collectible stickers are scattered around the different destinations and are a bit trickier to come by, while the difficulty level of the main quest is a bit towards the casual side which makes it a fun and kid-friendly game. Controls are simple and quick too, but expect some spatial confusion due to controls being switched when climbing upside-down or around corners. The adaptive locomotion designed for the little spidery robot is an impressive technical achievement.
