Spidercide is an original arcade, based loosely on the Tholian Web episode of the original Star Trek TV series. In this game, Spiders are drawing webs that trap you, and will eventually collide with and kill you. You can shoot the spiders (the screenshot above that shows the different point values shows that some spiders can only draw straight webs, and others can change direction), and you can shoot the web, but only very small portions at a time. The challenge is to not get trapped.
The game also had "different" than normal joystick controls; left and right rotated you, and forward and back thrust you forward or backwards (you don't just travel in the direction you point the joystick at).
