Love Has Eight Legs (working title) is an arcade game about protecting the earth from an octopus invasion. It's short and challenging, perfect for a bus ride or waiting in the doctor's office.

~Quick, reflex-based arcade gameplay

~Click to shoot

Love Has Eight Legs was released! If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can download it and play it for absolutely free! Like, no DLC or extra addons or unlocks to pay for, just free. There's no ads either. It even has an ending (..ish). And a terrible resolution YouTube video!

Anyway, I'll keep the browser version up below if you want to play with the demo, but it's totally not as good as playing with your fingers.


This is a side project I started only to see if I could get a game running on a cell phone. It turned out to be pretty fun, so I decided to keep working on it in my spare time!

I'm uploading a downloadable version, as well as a web-player version.

NOTE: The controls work well enough for a computer, but are vastly improved on a phone, because tapping on any part of the screen is much easier than dragging & clicking. I haven't found a great way to make mobile playtesting convenient yet. I'd still like to gather as much data as I can on other parts of the game though (art style, etc.), so I decided to upload it anyway.

Let me know what you think, if you enjoy it or hate it, and why! I especially want to know about:

Difficulty Level: Is it hard enough? What was your highest score?
Aesthetics: What do you think of the art style, characters, words, etc.?
Title: What do you think of the title Love Has Eight Legs? I'm not sold myself.
Possible Extra Features: I'm keeping this game simple, but if there's a feature that makes a lot of sense and I haven't considered it...

Thanks for playing :D

Release, yo

Love Has Eight legs has been released!

...wait, actually, it was released like two months ago... whoops. I apologize for taking so long to update this. I was in the middle of a bunch of crazy work stuff when it happened and I was terrible about informing everyone.

So anyway, playing the game is totally free, there's no ads or DLC or anything (despite being on a phone) so yea, if you're bored and on your phone, go ahead and play it! It's really hard.

This is the first game I've managed to finish and release in a while! Feels good. Feels reaaaaal good...

I am completely sold on the title. In fact, I think if you brushed up the graphics and threw in a bunch more nonsensical metaphorical links between action shooters and love, you could get a lot of views somewhere like kongregate.
Haha, I'm glad other people enjoy the little snippets, I put them in there mostly for me tbh :P Thanks!
My tablet art is a bit weak, I'm still getting used to it.
