How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description

Greedy Spiders
This hungry spider is looking for dinner!
The Bugs Need Your Help!

Those Greedy Spiders have set up a diabolical trap for their bug neighbors. With the help of an out-of-the-way bar, a sign, a few musical instruments, and some clever disguises, they now have the bugs right where they want them: in their webs.

It's up to you to rescue the helpless bugs in this clever and addictive puzzle game. Each turn, you move to stop a spider from advancing on their hapless prey. The spider then responds by crawling along the complex web toward one of their victims. Cut off the spider's path or free the bugs before any of them become dinner!

Free all the bugs, and you'll move on to the next level, where even more await your aid. You'll earn one, two, or three stars for each level, depending on how efficient you were in your rescue. But if a spider catches even one bug, you'll have to try again! But don't worry if that happens; a hint system will help you defeat the spiders on your next attempt.

Your Arsenal Awaits

Your main weapon in the fight to save bugkind: a pair of scissors. Cut the silken strands of the arachnid's web and force them to take another path. Eventually, they'll have no way to get to the bugs, who will then taste sweet freedom.

Of course, it won't always be that easy--that's why you'll need other tools in your insect quest. Fire will burn away all strands coming out of any central node on the web you choose. Decoys will lure spiders away from the real bugs you want to save. Lifelines rescue bugs outright from the web, allowing you to concentrate on the others still trapped.

Greedy Spiders attack!
Fire in the hole!
It's Actually a Big World After All!

The bugs may be small, but their problems are large and difficult. With over 60 levels, you'll have your work cut out for you. Seven kinds of bugs add variety to the visuals, and up to three spiders can patrol a web at once, making for a task that may need a master juggler to handle!

As you progress, the webs become more complex, the bugs and spiders more numerous, and the danger level higher. Can you succeed in freeing the bugs, or will those Greedy Spiders be having an insect smorgasbord tonight?

Please note: This free version of Greedy Spiders is ad-supported.

1.0 out of 5 stars ADs are sexual in content January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
Although the game itself is a lot of fun, I don't want to see sexual ads all the time. The game really causes you to think and try to outsmart the spider. It is not always easy. The spider is good at outsmarting me. I would be willing to buy this app to do away with ads.

Additional comment on 1-13-2012:

I spoke with several persons from Amazon today to help me remove the Greedy Spiders app from my Fire. They were not only extremely helpful but took great pains to help me. They also showed concerns in having the sexually explicit ads on a game that is meant for children 9 and up and are bringing those concerns with the people that need to hear them. Amazon has one of the very BEST customer service departments around.

I then tried to buy the game so I wouldn't have the ads but apparently the paid version doesn't work for the Kindle Fire.

Excellent intelligent game. New puzzle based idea that requires you to think a few steps ahead. Highly recommended even for older kids.

1.0 out of 5 stars Free Version and Annoying Ads January 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Okay, so I got this free app for my Kindle Fire after a quick scan of the description. Only to discover it contains extremely annoying popup spam ads that won't go away. Worse, they were the sleazy or scammy variety of ads that scream at you that you've won a free ipad or can contact single ladies with barely any clothing on in your city NOW NOW NOW!!!!!! Yuck, yuck, yuck.

I went back and read the entire description of the game and the very last line at the bottom gives a disclaimer about the free version being ad supported. Um, why can't this line be the first thing you read and maybe also show an example of the type of ads one is getting on the free sample before we decide to download it? I deleted the free version and am now contemplating whether or not I want to pony up for the whopping 99 cent version instead with no spam attached. And I wouldn't even hesitate except the ads were so slimy it makes me seriously wonder about the ethics of the company. I mean if you're going to put ads in your materials fine, just make them be legit instead of bowing to the spammers and the scammers please.

You really need a stylus to play it. It does grow on you.Also some of the Ads can get real big and annoying. Nothing is for free.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad December 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
the game is fun, good graphics and color. the thing I don't like is it does indeed take multiple taps on the web to cut it. I almost thought I was doing it wrong. as the game gets harder I see a big problem with this.

1.0 out of 5 stars adults only ads January 10, 2012
Says 9+, but the first ad I saw when test driving was sexy singles ... not what i want my kids to see ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous Ads October 23, 2011
By ttboyz
I don't want my kids seeing provocative ads. These developers are selling out to the wrong advertisers. Not only adults play these games. UNINSTALLED.
