CRABS POWERED BY SIMULATED PHYSICS! Take control of a simulated physics-powered crab and take on various opponents in this 3D action game with one basic rule: "flip your enemy over to win". Take advantage of a wide range of equipment to beat your opponent down: claws, swords, guns, armor, jet engines, and more. Stop your opponent's blade with your pincers, run along walls, and generally go full-on crab with all the fighting techniques at your disposal. Get the total battle crab experience with amazing procedural animations and spot-on accurate collision detection - just like you've always wanted to but probably never realized. FEATURING 23 TYPES OF CRAB, 48 DIFFERENT WEAPONS, AND 11 UNIQUE BATTLE STAGES! 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, online/offline battle modes... This game has it all. Enjoy campaigns and training modes while waiting for your turn in battle! CAMPAIGN MODE FEATURING OVER 41 BATTLES AS WELL AS TRAINING, RANKINGS, AND MORE! Go through the entire campaign on your own, or cooperate with friends - you can get the full experience either way! Test your might in the advanced-level Hard Mode and wave-based challenge stages to really hone your battle skills. LINK UP WITH VROID HUB Go into battle sporting your very own original avatar on top of your crab! Original avatars can be seen by other players online, so you can show off your bitchin' avatars to players around the world. In some completely different, super weird world, crabs have mastered human weapons and taken over the land. Now immortal, these crabs cannot be killed by gun nor blade. However, there is one crustacean rule by which all must live: "He who turns his back to the ground shall know defeat..." That's right - get flipped over on your back in battle, and you have no choice but to submit to your opponent. You must now embark on a journey to become the strongest ever seen, and flip the entire world itself onto its back.

Fight Crab gives dangerous weapons to crabs, and it's a wonderful, hilarious mess of a fighting game.

7.5 / 10.0

If you're willing to set your brain aside and just get down with some crusty bumping, you can count on having a good time. There's a lot to be said about the spectacle of sea bugs throwing down with medieval weaponry. It manages to keep things smelling fresh by putting you through some absolutely bizarre situations, and you'll never forget the first time a lobster comes at you with a revolver. On the other hand, this kind of stupid fun is always fleeting. You're probably not going to spend a lot of time mastering the art of the death pinch, and once the novelty wears off, you'll likely molt your old shell and move on.

Fight Crab is weird, wild, and fun as hell. It's a game purely focused on delivering charming and silly moments, and that chaotic, no-rules atmosphere leads to hours of hilarious crustacean combat. The game could have easily been an unpredictable, button-mashing physics mess, but the fact that there are legitimate layers of executable strategy to the combat makes it a thrilling challenge to boot. Even if you don't like crabs, Fight Crab will easily convert you into a claw-believer.
