Poor Horace has a long way to go before reaching the treasure room, and those nasty spiders want to stop him!
In Horace and the Spiders, you play, surprisingly enough as a character named Horace. The Spiders, believe it or not, are the enemies. The charming thing about this game is - that is as complicated as things get.
While there are challenges here, the main bulk of the game seems to be geared toward children. The easy mode, while perhaps a little fast for their eyes is quite jolly. The music keeps up a good pace and the fact that nobody dies is a very thoughtful touch.
You see, Horace has three vials. If he's bitten by a spider, or falls too far, he needs to use one. When he does, he is back a little further and ready to try again. If he runs out of vials, he is chased away by the spiders. Then you may restart.
It's a very charming game, and with two difficulty settings, and plenty of high score space, there is enough here for all ages.
