SPIDER: BRYCE MANOR HD works -- and succeeds -- on multiple levels. Its absolutely gorgeous storybook-style illustrations are a wonder to behold. Its spider-on-the-prowl gameplay concept is utterly original, offering up new forms of B play and loads of exciting exploration opportunities. And its eerie background mystery -- revealed bit by bit in small clues like a photo, a locket, a tombstone, etc. -- adds extra layers of enticement. Even if you ignore all its beautifully mysterious trappings, though, the game is just plain fun. Crawling around and looking for just the right place to spin your webs is a blast. Spider is a game that feels like a work of art, and should (rightfully) inspire a slew of copycat games in the months to come.
