Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon


Explore a house, weave webs, and try to avoid the real-time weather in this spectacular sequel to 2009’s Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor. (Don’t like spiders? There’s a trick to playing the game as something else!)



A much talked about puzzler in 2014 on iOS, Framed is a game about controlling the narrative by dragging comic book panels around the screen. Spoiler: we loved it.

If you loved the barrels in Donkey Kong Country, Bullet Boy is a very easy recommendation to make this week. It’s a game built around that mechanic, and as you’ll see in our review, it’s absolutely fantastic.
