Customer Reviews


Hi! I'm writing a review, and I usually don't do that, but this is an exception. I really love this game, and have fully upgraded my crab, and I want more. I restarted it on my new iPad after, well, that. I feel like this review is going no where, but I just want more stuff! The game lost its edge after I fully upgraded it, because I knew I wasn't getting anywhere after that. If there were more and different upgrades added, and some other things, I would greatly appreciate it. I'd love to have different crabs with varying abilities, and mor upgrades to the crab. You would upgrade each crab individually, and each crab would be better and harder to get than the last. Give them interesting and funny names and "personalities." You could add things like magnetic claws and more powerful claw upgrades, and have unique upgrades for different crabs. I see so much more potential for a massively amazing game, and it's just sitting there gathering dust! Also, I think you should be able to switch out your hand for a blaster or something.

Full of creativity, humor, and heart

Wow. This game can only happen on the iPad. There are so many enemy types, from 5th element type hover cars, police, to aliens. The physics are ever so satisfying when you crush a ship in your claws. The graphics are full retina and the artistic style is cute. It's not pay to win which is how all apps used to be. Worth the $3. I hope they make other games of this caliber.

I agree with this guy, and it's the best game ever.

This guy thinks we have four hands, but I'm going to let that be. This game really does need some upgrades like a magnetic claw, or a an Aimee when you have a bullet in your claw it has a little aimer. It does need some more bosses too., and that's pretty much it.
