Game Instructions –

At the title screen type S to start.

You control a spider and must avoid being caught by the diamond enemy or you will lose one of your three lives. Use the arrow keys to move and build a web. If you move across a web you’ve already built you’ll tie a knot which allows you to move on web section at a time but also has the added bonuses of slowing down the enemy when he comes into contact with it. Once you fill up all the blank spaces with web you’ll advance to the next level. Not bad for a BASIC game written by a 13 year old!
