I think "Tripping Spiders" was the original title of the game. The suits at Atari sent them back to the drawing board for a less controversial name.

The LSD looks creative, but I don't know how effective it would be.

The speed one looks a little rushed. Probably got distracted and started doing something else midway.

The THC, it was like "Meh, this is good enough, bro."

The caffeine is a good analogy of my boss whenever I see him.

LSD pretty much increases regularity to near perfection, which is pretty odd.

Yeah, I'd have thought it would have hurt like caffeine. It really is strange that it actually improves them.

Very high LSD doses “completely disrupted” web building. Some spiders stopped spinning altogether. High but less “incapacitating” doses produced very complex three-dimensional webs which often appeared “strikingly psychedelic” and presumably less efficient at registering vibrations.

Still lower LSD doses tended to produce webs which were compulsively regular, with accurate and consistent spacing between threads.
