Author's comments and explanations:
Apple Cider Spider is a short platformer. It features three levels and seven difficulties. In this TAS the seventh (six) difficulty is used.


Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.11.1


  • There are no shortcuts in this game!
  • Jumping is the fastest form of movement.
  • Collecting numbers causes the spider to stop for a moment. It can't be avoided.
  • Between levels there's a huge delay on the seventh difficulty which can't be avoided either.
  • The direction the spider is looking after climbing up a rope depends on the side the spider is climbing.
  • Turning on ropes is generally slower. Except when waiting for an object to pass, or depending on the distance to the next rope.
  • It's not possible to jump under low ceilings.
  • There's lots of waiting in this game.
  • In higher difficulties the game runs faster and there are more objects.

Do not disturb!

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: The game is a bit primitive but viewer response was reasonably good. Accepting for Moons.

feos: Encoding while Archive is down, will publish both (or more?) when it gets over it.
