Summary: " Alien Spidy " is a game that has its moments. When everything came together I had a surprising amount of fun with the little guy, but much like its extra-terrestrial protagonist, Alien Spidy misses the mark all too often.
Conclusion: Alien Spidy is rated E for Everyone with an ESRB descriptor of Comic Mischief. If your spider gets hit, he just makes an electrocuted animation and warps back to the last checkpoint, ready to try again. Reading skill isn’t needed as all the rules and instructions have picture cues.

Excerpt: From the opening movie I could tell Alien Spidy was going to be something special. The humor and character in this downloadable game is very high.

Excerpt: Jeg har intet imod spil, som er svære og udfordrende – tværtimod elsker jeg dem. Jeg kan sagtens sidde og bruge alt, alt for lang tid på at udvikle den perfekte taktik til at hoppe igennem et område i et platformspil eller lignende.
Pros: Hovedpersonen er nuttet
Cons: Spillet hakker, styringen er ikke ’stram’ nok til det krævede præcissionsniveau, det er en rædselsfuld oplevelse
