The idea behind this game is pretty interesting, but it's really obtuse. Trying to avoid the spider when you can't tell exactly where you are is a good challenge, but I think there should be a way to restore sight once you lose it. If there is a way to do so, I couldn't figure it out. Also, the controls are needlessly complicated if you ask me. I think it would have been better if you simply used the arrow keys to move in 4 or 8 directions.

Took a while to figure out the controls and how to start the game - possibly my fault. But once I played the game, it was fun! I did enjoy the forced switched perspectives - however, since it was fairly easy to predict the spider's patterns and there was nothing else to navigate around, it was not as effective as it could have been. It was also easy to fall into the same pattern of circling the field. The eye indicator and blue circle indicators were very helpful and effective at conveying information though!

I think a comment explaining the controls would be nice. Cool art style :)
