Play OverviewPlay Overview

Spyder (2020) 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 explore the world and can use your sticky legs to walk over any surface or use your grapple to swing around and solve puzzles. It stands out for the clever puzzles and endearing character that blends quick thinking with dexterity.

With sticky feet, you get to defy gravity and explore wherever you want. 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.

Our examiner, Goran Wallgren, first checked Spyder 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 7 weeks ago.
