Spider Jack cuts the web of its price down to 99 cents on Xbox Windows Phone

Spider Jack

A couple of weeks ago, Windows Phone Central published a dual review of Cut the Rope and Spider Jack. Both games stem from Russian developers, star cute and hungry little critters, and feature gameplay that involves the cutting of ropes (or spider webs). Cut the Rope may be better known (all of my Windows Phone friends bought it), but I actually found Spider Jack a bit more enjoyable. Despite its quality however, Spider Jack suffered one major disadvantage compared to Cut the Rope: its $2.99 price.

Last week, Spider Jack developer MaxNick’s second Xbox Windows Phone title Turn N Run launched at the 99 cent price point (after briefly appearing at $2.99 due to a mistake). That prompted us to wonder whether Spider Jack might soon drop to the same price. Well, that’s exactly what happened today! You can now grab Spider Jack for just a buck.

Spider Jack is a simple puzzle game starring a lovable green arachnid named Jack. He’s got a hankering for juicy flies, which you’ll need to help him get. To do this, you attach the spider’s thread to a knob. He’ll then swing around, collecting anything he touches. You’ll also need to cut the rope, err, thread in order to drop Jack onto items.

The game features 125 levels that take place across a variety of locations, from a playroom to the Oval office itself. Each environment has one or two special features/obstacles to make the puzzles interesting, such as electric gates, teleportation portals, and wads of bubble gum. The short levels and simple controls are perfect for mobile play. Plus the Achievements are pretty easy – perhaps a bit more so than Cut the Rope’s.

Spider Jack works great on both Windows Phone 7 and 8. Climb over here on the Windows Phone Store to get it.

Nice. Even though I got this game for 2.99 way back when it first came out but the price drop is good for new WP users.

Make the pun-tastic titles stop; "drifitng onto the marketplace" for a racer, "swinging into the store" for a monkey puzzler, etc.......ugh.

Do not ask us to be more boring. We can't do it.

Hey, it's not nearly as bad as NintendoLife.  Those guys have made it nearly impossible for me to appreciate another pun.

GearDoGi says:

Nice move and hope to see more old and totaly outdated games to drop their price.
It's ridiculous to see TOP GAMES like Cut the rope,Angry Birds Space/Star Wars to cost 0.99$ and for other nice but old games like fragger,gravity guy,contre jour pay 2.99$

Paul Acevedo says:

Contre Jour isn't that old.

Tomasz S. says:

And it's awesome. Can't wait for it to go DotW.

Sans Gluten says:

Thanks for the heads-up.

And that's what I was waiting for. More apps need to sell for a buck. That is what kicked off the success of the apple app store imo.
