About This Game

Crab Cakes Rescue is a unique puzzle game that will pinch your brain! Navigate your way through nearly 100 vibrant levels by shedding your shell to create new opportunities to escape! Each time a shell is shed, a block is created and your crabby crustacean self is shrunk. You must use these tricks wisely as you have a finite number of shells! And beware of pesky seagulls and other bothersome beach buddies as you find the best way to get up, down, and around each mind-boggling level. Prepare to spend hours on the sandy shore of Crab Cakes Rescue!

Features:

  • Nearly 100 mind-pinching levels!
  • Multiple ways to finish each level - you decide!
  • Avoid pesky birds and pollution
  • Use your shell “lives” to create new opportunities to win!

I don't mind simple games. The way Crab Cakes Rescue looks you can guess it's rather simply game. Doesn't have fancy graphics, doesn't have fluid animations. Just small levels and big number of them. I was enjoying game at some point - until platform levels happened... it's not like these levels are hard, it's just pure luck: maybe your very little crab will make it until platform dissapears but if not, you can start again playing this level. From this point all the fun, all the pleasure playing this rather casual game went somewhere. Also, getting 3 stars on every level is really hard and not enjoyable. I mean, it's good that game can be hard too BUT only if it's due to level difficulty, not technical issues. This price is also too high, since Crab Cakes Rescue feel like really poor made flash game and it's not worth even price at some bigger promotions. I can't recommend it for puzzle or platformer fans, you will really feel dissapointed at some point.

While the death mechanic to use your dead husk as a platform was interesting the game itself was pretty poor overall.

This game is the best. It is a representation of the opression that the middle class faces with a rapidly expanding wealth gap. This game is pure poetry. 4/10.
