Hungry Spider Tips
If, like me, you had an issue with the spider level, here are some tips to help you clear it.

Before you go to 1 + 2 - go to the tiny area to the north of your start and kill the cricket. After that, 1 + 2 can be swapped as necessary, but don't go towards the spiders at 6 till the end, they'll 1-2 hit you till level 30.

Skill max/level ups should be put into 1 as your priority, then 2, then 4, then 3. You need to be healing as much as possible, so put a couple of points into 4 early.

My level ups for this run started off at 1/2/4/1/3/4. If you kill everything you should be level 38 at the end.


Full guide:

Kill everything in the starting area, then move north into the cricket's area, killing/eating as necessary. Kill the cricket, continue to level up skills, maxing 1/attack first.

Move into one of the queen's areas, and kite a large group of enemies into venom sprays, and move forwards and kill all the queens. Mop up the nearby enemies (But don't go into the spider area #6 until later)

Move onto #3, and slowly kite/kill crabs so their bodies pile up on each other. Lure the uber crab over to the bodies and keep damaging him with all skills while you eat to stay healthy.

Move to #4, and dodge the spray the adults use by moving behind them, and try to get the bodies to pile up again. This is a harder uber enemy, as it will heavily damage you, and the confusion spray happens frequently. If you get low, run outside of the tunnel and around a corner for a few seconds so it retreats. Keep damaging/kiting/retreating till you kill it.

Next is #5, and the tiger beetles stun you for long durations. If you can dodge the first couple of attacks their stun shouldn't go off. Move through the beetles, still maxing your main 1st skill, and make your way to the boss.

This is a fairly challenging boss, as it constantly stuns you and has a high damage output. Move close to it and use your venom pool twice, then hit it with your 3rd skill and hit it a couple of times (After dodging first 2 attacks) and then kite back/run. You'll likely have to run back to the tiny passage at the very north to get it to run back to it's area. Do this until death.

Make your way to #6. The spiders still hit hard (And can poison you with their attacks) so stack up venom pools and slowly kill them off 1-2 at a time. Keep your health high, and slowly make your way through. At this point, the only enemy that should be left is the uber spider. Lure it out by moving close then run around the corner to the south and hide in the tiny alcove.

Even at level 38, if the only attack it lands poisons you, you'll be at about 1/3 hp when it runs out. Once it's lured out, move in close, poison pool the floor twice, then use your 3rd skill to draw it to the pool, attack 2-3 times, then run back around the corner and heal up. This will slowly allow you to kill it.

Even if it looks like it has 1hp left, never do more than 3 attacks. Just patiently wear it down and you'll achieve victory :)

Also shouldn't there be some kind of bonus for the formicarium? This was a very hard level.

You're just dying from being hurt. The narrator gives a little line about gluttony but it's just a voice line.

Thanks! I was getting one hit by a high level creature which is why I didn't put it together that I was dying from losing HP and the voice line was throwing me off.
