Save the bugs from Greedy Spiders on your Google TV

Guest to the Google TV blog, Guadalupe CalabrĂ³, Director of PR & Content Manager, Blyts shares how you can enjoy more game time with Greedy Spiders 2 for Google TV

Do you hate spiders as much as we do? Then check out Greedy Spiders 2 for Google TV as you take turns battling it out against these creepy crawlies. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is simple: free all the bugs on the spider web before they get eaten.

More features = better game time

Greedy Spiders 2 is a turn by turn puzzle game that brings you 144 new levels (previously only 75) with high quality graphics, new music selections and sound effects, and 4 new weapons at your disposal so that you’re always on the edge of your seat planning your next move. If this isn’t enough, every time you play and win a level, you’ll rack up achievements giving you more hints and tips to help you advance in the game.

Go farther to test your mental endurance with easy or hard difficulty modes. But don’t get too confident - you may find yourself casually killing your foe at one moment and at the next scrambling to save your bug friends. Take, for example, the new intelligent spiders like Midas or Smarty that make it even harder to maneuver the spider web and avoid these 8 legged freaks. Rule of thumb? Never underestimate these creepy spiders.

Heighten your anxiety with group play

If you thought the anxiety levels were high in solo play, get ready to partner up with your friends in epic group mode. Bring your friends and family into the mix as you battle your way through intense levels and fight off crazy spiders that are trying to stop you.

Group play forces you to strategize and bring your experience, and your anxiety, to the next level. But watch out, the person next to you may want to get their hands on that remote sooner than you are ready to give it up!

So grab some tasty munchies, take a load off and enjoy a couple of hours of intense group entertainment with your friends and family. Thought you were afraid of the spiders in your home? Think again with Greedy Spiders 2 on your Google TV.
