Sam Fisher is pretty iconic and all, but the real star of Splinter Cell Blacklist are the tiny mechanical spiders. Skittering about, stealing intelligence and such. Ubisoft has given spider-bot his day in the sun today, with an iOS game devoted to the automaton arachnid.
Spider-Bot is now available for free on the App Store (via Touch Arcade). It's a 2D action puzzler that has you navigating spider-bot through buildings to collect intel, all the while avoiding turrets, guards, and other spy robots. Dastardly! The currency you collect in Spider-Bot will go into your bank account for Blacklist once the full game comes out, so if you play a ton of it you should be a very well-equipped super-spy.
The game page promises future updates, including "Stealth-Bot" and "Strike-Bot" modes, and special content for Blacklist. That game, for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U, will be coming on August 20.
