The purpose of the game is to throw pebbles and break the forming ice on the spider's web. Once gameplay begins, you have 1:30 to toss pebbles up to clear the ice and make room for the insects that are roaming around the web. Throwing the pebbles requires you to swipe down the screen on your iDevice, moving your finger left or right to aim, and then releasing to toss the pebble. Each completed round of play gets the snow spider enough bugs to complete breakfast, lunch and dinner. The game is complete when you rack up enough bugs to suffice the snow spider's daily appetite.
