1. What I would like to see improved is perhaps having a choice of music as the Indiana Jones thing could get annoying. Perhaps something of Hip Hop, Easy Listening but still upbeat or maybe even a Rock theme. Also the scrolling screen was not fun, I agree with some of the previous reviewers about it needing to go.
2. Different themes for each day would be a nice addition and perhaps some "power-ups" as it was previously suggested. Maybe some along the lines of making time slow down/speed up, making the Rainbow Spider smaller/larger, making the webbing thicker/thinner and maybe a power-up that would let the Spider make something enabling it to hover/fly for a short time period.

BUT, other than the small flaws it has, it was a fun game.


i love swinging games but this 1 is super gay


Uh... wow. I mean... that's just bizarre. I like it and it's definitely an interesting concept. Very... bizarre.


It was pretty cool. I lucked out a lot but managed to unlock hard. The controls take a bit of getting used to and theres some kind of momentum with the webs but once you get the hang of it, it's alright. There wasn't much of a challenge and I got bored after a while, maybe if you added power ups or different platforms/level themes for each day. The music reminded me of indiana jones and I felt like whip slinging over a pit of snakes. I found I could fall pretty far before being killed, giving me more of a chance to get back up.

The only thing I didn't like was the spaces between some of the objects in the middle of the level, at times it was impossible to get through the gaps and I got stuck as the screen scolled on without me.

Cool game

Doing whatever a spider can...

Very well done. After I got the hang of it, I had a lot of fun swinging along. A couple things could use improvement though...Firstly, going off-screen - that really needs to be fixed. Maybe the camera could focus on the rainbow spider instead of simply scrolling horizontally? And secondly, I once loaded the game and there weren't any rainbows or coins, I was just swinging by myself. Not a big deal, I just started a new game and it was fine. But nevertheless, a glitch that needs fixing.

All things considered, really fun game! Good job!
