Description of Spyder

Freddy Fish, Fleet Sweep, and Spyder are three arcade oldies by Mirror Images Software, no doubt one of the most obscure game developers ever. Similar to Windmill Software, Mirror Images produced games that were "inspired" (to put it mildly) by well-known arcade classics, most often ATARI games. They all play pretty well, but they don't really offer any innovations to set them apart from the original classics.

Of this trio, Spyder is probably the best game of the lot: you shoot spiders that drop from the ceiling, and there are a few surprises on the later levels to keep things interesting. Fleet Sweep is good fun, but it becomes tedious after a while once a lot of fish fill up the screen. All three games except Spyder suffer from quick repetitiveness, but they'll hold your interest for a few minutes at least.

If you just want to pick the best game of the lot, try Spyder, peek at Freddy Fish and leave Fleet Sweep alone.
