If you’re looking for a game that is simple to learn but almost impossible to master you might want to check out Spiderly HD. The basic game concept is keeping the falling spiders from invading the house at the bottom of the screen. You do this by scaring them away and eating them!
The basic concept sounds simple, but it quickly gets more complex. On the first level, there are only one color of spiders so you only need one bird. As you progress through the game there will be up to 4 different colors of spiders falling from the sky and you will have to eat them with a bird that matches their color!
As you get even further into the game you’ll start to notice clouds that block your vision and storm clouds that can actually change the color of the that are falling! This can be especially frustrating if you have several spiders that are almost to the bottom of the screen and they change color!
The final twist that is thrown at you is a bomb that will roll across the bottom of the screen. The bomb is a random color and when you touch it all of the spiders of that color will be destroyed at the same time! While it may be tempting to touch it as soon as it enters the screen, oftentimes waiting just a few seconds will yield much better results.
While the gameplay itself is very fun and hectic, the competitive drive within me started wishing that there was some type of score tracking, or last a more competitive nature to the game. You are allowed to let two spiders across without failing a level, but this does not regenerate when you win a round. It does reset when you lose though, and there are really no consequences to losing because you can retry as many times as you want.
In summary, if you just looking for a challenge and little distraction then you might want to check out Spiderly HD. If, however, you are very competitive and like to compete for high scores this game may not interest you as much as most. With that said there is a Lite version of this app if you’d like to try it out before you buy it, so what are you waiting for? Head to the App Store and check it out for yourself today.
