Finally a real spider game, you have no idea how long I waited for this! A game that you can actually have a pet spider, plus on the other side that I was not actually expecting is. Learning how to care one! And of course getting it into a real world! This is the most coolest spider game ever!!! You guys rock for this! I still don't know why this wasn't out sooner, I mean spider games like this. I get the spider fear thing, but still we need games like this; those who love spiders anyway. I may have fear of spiders, due to my dreams in my past. But that doesn't mean I don't love spiders! Anyway 5 stars for you guys! Keep up the amazing work!
P.s If you can, be great you guys make a game for snakes, lizards. Cause snakes and lizards are awesome!

For a free app, this is amazing!


Many free virtual pet games are half done and poorly made but this game is impressive! The creativity and hard work put in this game really shows and I hope the creators can make more unique games like this! Game play is simple but memorable and you can tell a lot of love was put in this app. This game is great if you like or even if you don't like spiders/tarantulas! This game in a way shows a more gentle and lovable side to the creepy crawlers and it's something I haven't seen in a game before. I highly recommend this app and it's great if you want pet spiders or tarantulas without the hassle of the real thing!

Black Out 4

Hey Scary Spiders, I just wanted to say that the game was fantastic to me until the update... I loved the way the spiders got to grow up as you fed them. But now you get them easily fully grown as soon as the box opens up. And the "new spiders" I actually had already owned, and I sadly had to buy them again? I felt kind of ripped off. Also I had names for all of them, but somehow the names were mixed up with the new update and I had to buy every spider I owned the name I gave them before... very frustrating. I hope you guys will bring back the way they grew up as you fed them. That's all I thought you guys needed know.
