Spyder, Sumo Digital's inventive adventure-puzzler, is this week's Apple Arcade title. It's launching today exclusively for iOS 13, iPad OS, MacOS, and tvOS.
It's a spy thriller with a bit of a twist. Basically, you play as Agent 8, the most sophisticated spider robot on Earth. Despite your incredibly small stature, you're a real force to be reckoned with.
And that's just as well seeing as you happen to be the world's last line of defence against the evil organization known as S.I.N.
Your creators have kitted you out with a terrific arsenal of retro-futurist gadgets and gizmos. These can be used to traverse the game's environments, escape danger, and hopefully save the day.

Exploring the world from the perspective of a tiny spider should be interesting, especially this particular world, packed with all manner of deadly hazards and traps to skilfully deactivate or avoid.
There are panels to cut through, terminals to overload, valves to open, walls to climb on, and plenty of switches to be flipped. It sounds like good fun, seems charming enough, and its high-quality presentation is definitely appealing.
Sumo Digital is of course the studio behind popular titles such as Team Sonic Racing, Crackdown 3, and Little Big Planet 3.
If you quite fancy finding out what it feels like to be a six-legged robot spider tasked with saving the world, you'll find Spyder available for download later today from over on the App Store. You'll need an active Apple Arcade subscription to play, and those go for $4.99 a month or $49.99 for the year.Searching for more quality mobile puzzlers? Well, you're in luck!
