Using both hands, 2 fingers and 2 thumbs you control the crab's pinchers.  You can stretch out the crab's arms as well as moving them left and right and you grab the passing 'traffic' floats into space around you in the form of cars, trucks, vans, buses and even police cars!  This advances to missile shooting vehicles as you progress in the game.

As well as trying to smash and eat the moving targets you also have to avoid meteors and other missiles set to destroy you!

As you play you earn points which you can use in the 'Crab Lab'.  There are a variety of enhancements to your claws such as 'crushatonic strength' and 'spikey claws'. Use your game dollars to give you power ups that help your chances of winning, all of which are full of lighthearted fun and tongue in cheek humour. 

Under 'crab missions' you'll find your stats, missions to complete and your ranking or level achieved so far.

The controls are sensitive and super responsive so you feel like you are the crab. This is a great game for children over 6 to help them get to grips with the iPad and how cool it really is!
