Played a bunch of an indie game called "Webbed" today. It's an adorable physics-based puzzle-platformer where you play as a jumping spider trying to save her boyfriend, who was whisked away by a bird.

So far it seems like a game that took an amazingly well-implemented foundation -- namely, flinging yourself around a forest on webs at high speed, à la Spiderman -- and then threw it in the dumpster by making the player tediously solve "puzzles," nearly 100% of which involve slowly moving heavy objects to obvious destinations.

I don't regret the purchase, but I wouldn't call the meat of the game "fun," unfortunately.
