Seeing the story unfold through these creatures is very clever. You'll watch your scorpion or tarantula gaze at these giant humans as they discuss their efforts in hunting down treasure. The combat is quite rewarding. Players receive a wide variety of attacks, which are slowly introduced as you advance through each level. There are also plenty of different bugs and smaller animals to keep the action exciting, although there are some lulls in activity.

Platforming is very entertaining as well, particularly with the tarantula, who flings webs across the landscape to traverse difficult spaces. One major frustration with Deadly Creatures is the game's camera. When the pace picks up, the camera has trouble keeping up, giving you awkward views. During one battle, the camera sat overhead, obstructing any views of approaching enemies. Players in search of a unique platforming experience should consider cozying up to these creepy-crawly creatures.
