    Even for those squeamish around spiders, this puzzler is a work of art that will have you spinning webs all day long, despite the nasty menu failures.

    Atmosphere plays a huge role in Spider, and the beautifully hand drawn artwork pairs nicely with the hip soundtrack to evoke and intensify the sense of mystery that's so crucial to the game. Tiger Style's innovative iPhone debut is easily worth putting at the top your must-have game app list, and at $2.99, you simply can't go wrong.

    A beautifully created action (adventure?) game that places you in the role of a spider who must spin webs in order capture enough food to make it to the next level.

    Spider: the Secret of Bryce Manor is an impressive, original game due to its well-implemented controls, beautiful graphics, unique gameplay, and multi-layered, subtly presented story.

    A super fun game with lots of replay value. If you are looking for something that takes a very unique approach to gaming then I can't recommend it enough.

    A tremendous accomplishment. It succeeds on every level, in fact the only significant complaint we can level at the game is that once the game is completed you can't go back and replay any specific level.
