I would not recommend this game mostly because of how frustrating the controls are. I love challenging games, but when the main challenge of a game feels like it comes from poor controls and unpredictable input then I feel like there's something fundamentally wrong with the design of the game. I tried on both keyboard and controller and neither of them were able to provide a satisfying feel. But I managed to plow through all the levels in the first world. At which point the game forces you to collect enough stars to progress to the second world. Since stars are earned by your score at the end of the level, and your score is determined by how successfully you can combo collect pickups, and to collect pickups you need to have precise input...well you see where I'm going. I abruptly stopped right after that.

This game is a nice concept marred by awful execution and unrealistic expectations of the player. The way to score points requires you to be absolutely perfect most of the time if you want to get more than even 1 star, much less 5. The web-physics are also a little buggy, every time the web connect the spidy jitters around weirdly and loses momentum for no reason. This is a game simply not worth trying to finish, and that such a small percentage of players has even cleared the first world (which I did manage) should be a red flag that it's not just difficult, but flat-out broken.

I came into Alien Spidy expecting a sort a Metroid type game. I was slightly disappointed by the singular level format, but i could deal with it. I had trouble with the web mechanic because every time I decide to let go, i seem to lose my momentum. The biggest sin this game commits is having to go back to get a certain amount of stars to move on to later levels. To get a decent amount of stars, you need to be almost perfect. If you wanted a game like this, than you would do much better to get Super Meat Boy.

I played this game for 23 minutes and it was after the first 10 that I realised this game was not for me.

I've never been a big fan of games focused largely on getting high scores. This game is that type of game. It has levels that are divided into tiny segments that have you automatically respawn if you die, making each individual obstacle practically 'checkpointed' which while making the challenges more tolerable because you're not really set back at all by respawning, it kind of dramatically lowers the difficulty. That being said it's the kind of game that I imagine if I had sat down and played it properly then the later levels would not doubt be more difficult anyways.

The controls when using a gamepad are also terrible, they're tolerable when using a keyboard and mouse.

If you like games that present a bit of challenge and are focused on high scores then this bad boy is clearly for you, however I didn't like it.
