Description

A tasty little confection sits on a charming cottage's window sill, perhaps cooling or awaiting a cup of tea to accompany it. Suddenly an infinite horde of tiny hungry spiders begin to descend from the top of the window, one by one, descending in staggered stages like rappellers and bouncing uncertainly like bungee jumpers. The player's goal is to prevent these spiders from infesting the delicious dessert -- or more generally, like in any number of early arcade classics, keep the enemies from reaching the bottom of the screen.

The spiders are incredibly tiny, however, so the player must use the mouse to move a scope over their location -- a magnifying glass of sorts -- and click to smack the spiders against the window. From time to time a ladybug strolls across the proceedings, and if its wanderings can be intercepted with a smack, the player's armament is temporarily upgraded to some heavier, more explosive shot -- still leaving the window undamaged, but flattening more spiders with a ranged area of effect. If the spiders lay into the sweet cake, the game ends.
