Spider Jack is a new puzzle game from developer Chillingo that just hit the App Store, and CultofMac is betting it’ll be the next iPhone game crazy. It bears some resemblance to Cut the Rope, but features some different gameplay elements as well.
The game revolves around a cute green spider called Jack, who needs to return to his web to ear flies. Your job is to get him there. It features 75 levels skilfully designed levels that promise to test your reflexes and foresight. Using pieces of web (not rope) you must carefully avoid the electrical beams and guide Jack safely home to his web. Use hairdryers to you advantage and try to collect as many stars as you can along the way.
Each level features multiple solutions, making the game’s replay value higher than most of its type, and the impressive visuals have been hand-drawn and optimized for the iPhone 4′s Retina display. Realistic physics attempt to give you a taste of “what real web-slinging is like,” and offer a puzzler that’s suitable for players of all ages and abilities.
Spider Jack’s similarities to Cut the Rope means many will already be familiar with its gameplay style, and to those who have beaten every level of Cut the Rope and are begging for something similar, Spider Jack has you covered. Will it be the next big thing on the App Store? I don’t know, but surely time will tell. If you’re hooked, go grab it from the App Store! There are both iPhone ($0.99, App Store) and hi-res iPad ($1.99, App Store) versions available. Let us know what you think!
