Summary

Look, it's Spiderman. Oh wait, I was wrong.

The Good

At the time I first played Spiderbot, I had just gotten my first CGA computer and was only five years old and at the time anything was good on the CGA.

The Bad

Now that I look back, I see that Spiderbot was a sham. Terrible graphics, controls from hell and sound that put shame on the name of PC Speaker. Thinking about the game now, what you actually had to do really didn't make much sense. It was more or less going around room to room, banging the keys to hopefully discover that you were doing something right.

The Bottom Line

Bad. That's all there is to it.
