Speedy Spides

For a brief period in the mid 1980s, the publishing industry decided to try its hand at software. Popular properties were slapped on sloppy products and the results of their efforts were decidedly mixed – simple puzzle games and the like tended to come and go on retailer shelves with barely a notice, while purely educational titles fared better. Reader’s Digest decided to go the former route and the results was a line of games like this one.

Note: I do have the original floppy disk for this game but it’s heavily copy-protected and there doesn’t seem to yet exist a cracked version.
