Games Review: Spider: the Secret of Bryce Manor

iPhone, Tiger Style, £1.79

The hero of Tiger Style’s first iPhone release is a hungry little spider seeking out prey in a deserted mansion while investigating the house’s mystery. After getting over playing as a spider – think Charlotte’s Web rather than Arachnophobia – I found the game utterly charming. The primary goal is to create beautifully geometric webs to catch flies but while making these silken ladders, you’ll also explore Bryce Manor from a spider’s eye view. Moving at a gentle pace through 28 hand-drawn levels, this quiet game is an eightlegged triumph.
