Why can't I just play it sped up?
It took me an hour to play one level on this game. I really can not comprehend why it would cost you psi- points to speed up the game play. Most games incorporate that as an option for players to use once they are comfortable playing at a faster speed. It doesn't give you any real in-game benefit, so why does it cost me something to play an incredibly slow game at a more tolerable pace?
Also, if I sit through all of the levels, will I eventually be able to create more than three types of spiders, or will I continue to top out my evolution points before getting a decent selection to choose from? I guess I'll never know.
What I can see of the graphics is decent. As mentioned by someone else, though, the background matches the spiders pretty closely.
