Natural Selection 2

Johnny123 In real life, spiders crawled straight out of our nightmares to hide in our showers and closets and pop out on us when we least expect it. In this universe, however, spiders are adorable. How else do you explain Spiderling or Gift Rush 3? Apparently there's something game developers know about spiders that we don't. Whatever the case, Alexander Fedoseev's Natural Selection 2 continues the rebranding of everyone's least favorite arachnid, doing so in a cutesy, fun little ball of a physics game. Use the mouse to shoot strands of webbing to pull yourself around the course, catching and ensaring the helpless flies that meander about the levels. Watch out for bees, one sting will kill you dead. Come to think of it, maybe this isn't so cute after all...

Natural Selection 2 Natural Selection 2 does not lack challenge, though a change in the types of challenge presented might have improved the game's replayability. The bees are the sole enemy of the game and the challenge comes from adding more bees, fewer or farther-spaced flies, and shifting level designs. It feels like a free form game of Pac Man at times, having you dodge past bees down each corridor to snag the all-important flies one by one. The bees chase you by the way, so keep an eye on escape routes. The physics are solid and the presentation is all silly fun. There's always fun to be had in watching your ball of spider fling himself from what side of the level to the next, frantically weaving past bees. Track pads are not recommended unless you want to wear down your fingertips fast. Natural Selection 2 gives you the joy of being a true predator in a sweet and attractively goofy package. Because, hey, spiders can be cute too.

really getting to get annoyed by the levels that rely on the AI derping up enough that you don't end up trapped with no wide enough paths to escape before you even begin moving.

After bees are all in same place it goes little too easy.
