Unfortunately this review will be quite brief, due to an unexpected issue I ran into. Alien Spidy is, in and of itself, a fairly solid physics puzzler. You swing from anchor point to anchor point, collecting little bits of energy, hopefully in a row, in an attempt to boost your score by reaching the end of the level. At 3 worlds and anywhere from 16 to 24 or so levels per, it doesn't seem exceptionally long, but the game is quite difficult, though not unreasonably so. The web swinging could use some work, which is a shame because it's basically the core of the game, but that isn't the issue here.

When returning to the game to make further progress, having already made it to the end of the 2nd world (no small feat, I can assure you), I started the game only to find the Continue option blanked out. My save file was gone, and according to the forums nobody knows where to, not even the developers. With such a game-breaking bug being so common, and with the developers seemingly planning to do nothing about it, this game gets a hard pass.

If it's ever fixed, it's a pretty challenging game that requires a lot of finesse, but when all of that effort can be dashed in an instant, something is wrong.

I want to recommend this game, it looks really nice, and I like platform games, but it is annoying as hell. Slightest mistake and you blow all your points. It is very tricky indeed, not fun.

Alien Spidy is a cute little guy. His butt's shiny and he's got his cute little poses through the game. Don't let that fool you though. He's still a freaking spider and as such, he can be a bit of an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

The idea is simple enough; get through the levels using your jumps and webs, slinging yourself from tree's and such, all while collecting little glowing orbs. There's obstacles to avoid, such as rolling rocks, thorns, mushrooms and such. Like I said, puzzle platformer 101. All in all, this game play's not too shabby! It can be fun and it is most definitely challenging! It's got some big problems though.

Granted, these problems may just be my skill, maybe it's my third party xbox controller. The controls are kinda of tough from time to time. The main mechanic of this game is shooting your webs in mid air to attach to tiny platforms, using your momentum to throw you across gaps and obstacles. Your webs do not always shootin the angle you want them to though. There's times where having to restart check points feels pretty cheap since you would have sworn you used your right stick to spit webs in just the right angle, just to have it shoot straight up.

The controls aren't game breaking, but they're certainly frustrating. A bit of a blemish on an otherwise cute and fun puzzler!
