Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Find out the height of a building in as many ways as possible. The only limitation: you've got to use a barometer. Being a parody on Andrew Plokin's classic, Spider and Web, this game tries to adopt, in somewhat caricatured form, as many unusual features of the original as possible (including even such details as, say, the name of the game file not matching the actual game name). Naturally, players familiar with the work of Plotkin will encounter additional moments of fun; however, Spyder and Jeb is perfectly enjoyable on its own, too. The game contains a bug that even can make it crash, but since one needs to do really weird things to run into it, 99% of the players probably won't notice.
