If you drop a Pygmy into the spider web hanging from the tree and tap it, a small spider will come and wrap the Pygmy in a cocoon. If you tap the cocoon, it will burst into dozens of small spiders. Then, the Barking Spider, the boss of Graveyard Island, would come and the Pygmies would fight it like they would the Tyrannosaurus Rex (with the spear). The spider will web and eat the Pygmies, or will put them in a spider web cocoon to be fed to her babies.

Halloween Skin Pack

This update also included a Halloween pack for all the islands except Ice Island. This update allowed you to add Halloween extras to islands (like pumpkins) as well as turn the T-Rex Egg into a Jack-o-Latern and the Dodo Bird and Fish into skeletal versions of themselves.


  • This is the second episode to add a boss animal to the game.
  • The "Barking Spider" is actually the name of a real species of spider, but in Pocket God the spider literally barks and whines like a dog.
