This week's arcade release was also featured in this same article back in October of 2012, and then it just... never came out. Down came the rain, I'm guessing. But this seemingly persistent and definitely extraterrestrial arachnid has returned and looks to finally weave its web across your dashboard.

Alien Spidy
Publisher: Kalypso Media
Developer: Enigma Software
Price: 800 MSP
After losing contact with his explorer friend Virgi, our fearless alien hero Spidy heads to Earth in his spacecraft to find her. While entering the Earth’s atmosphere, his spacecraft suddenly fails and starts to break up, causing Spidy to crash-land on the strange planet, with his craft scattered across forests, throughout ponds and into dark caves. Spidy finds himself alone on an alien world and faces the epic challenge of tracking down Virgi, battling strange new enemies and finding the missing pieces from his spacecraft in order to repair the damage and make their escape home.
