Description from the packaging.

A single spider droid remains in an electronic jungle teeming with robotic insects. A nearby citadel is minutes away from blasting a radioactive repellent into the jungle. And the native insects are getting restless...

The spider droid must transform into a hyper-mobile Spiderbot, scutter into the citadel and raid the destructive power source - "webbing" and caging insect traitors along the way. Only then will the jungle be safe from extermination.

And it was just going to be another day catching robotic flies....

  • Yesterday the robotic ray was your friend, today you don't know who your friends are...
  • Fire your web to catch killer bugs. Then brainwash your hostages into changing sides.
  • Once caught, the Big Borer can be put to use gnawing passageways to the citadel.
  • Locate your exoskeleton and become Spiderbot. Then climb upwards, shooting radioactive webs. But don't hang out on the ceiling too long.
