    Spider is a brilliant little game that could only happen on the iPhone. It's a perfect distillation of a concept -- a spider's exploration -- dropped in the middle of a mystery that you actually don't even need to pay attention to in order to enjoy the game.

    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.

    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.

    The Secret of Bryce Manor is a sophisticated enough game to please even the most hardened of gamers, while remaining friendly to the more casual of players.

    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 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.

    Nuanced and evocative storytelling, a well-executed presentation, and gameplay designed to capitalize on the uniqueness of the development platform all combine to make Spider the best game I've played on the iPhone to date.

    There is nothing like Spider in the app store. It stands on its own and stands proudly. Replay value abounds, from attempting to capture all bugs to unlocking all achievements to just having fun spinning webs and enjoying the spider's control scheme.
