Spiderheck is a frantic game all about spiders with lightsabers. It plays well, and it controls really well but it does take some getting used to, the opening of the game is cold with just a screenshot of controls and some platforms with modes on. I found it played best with friends as randoms would go too hardcore and the offline solo was really flat. For me, it’s like an evolution to the Worms formula but without the environmental Carnage because the guns are crazy, look fantastic and just mix the game right up. I loved playing Spiderheck for a fair few hours but never found myself going back especially solo. Spiderheck is fun and can be a lot of fun but bring friends.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
