See the world from a new perspective in “Spyder,” the latest Apple Arcade arrival

Sumo Digital’s “Spyder,” a spy-on-the-wall adventure video game set in a retro universe in which you play as the most sophisticated miniature robot spider on earth, is the latest addition to Apple Arcade’s stable of exclusive titles.

Save the world

British Spy Agency “EP-8” has built its tiny robot spider using experimental technology, the blurb goes. You can do stuff such as cut through panels, overload terminals, flip switches and open valves “as you scurry about sabotaging the heinous plans of evil doers.”
