Fight Crab gives dangerous weapons to crabs, and it's a wonderful, hilarious mess of a fighting game.
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.
Equal parts fever dream and time-waster, Fight Crab may find a way to sidestep into your library.
Fight Crab shares a lot of similarities with the glorious gladiatorial battles of Ancient Rome, which were what made primary school history lessons actually fun. Though, like the sporting spectacle, it might not be everyone's cup of tea.
Much like crabs themselves, I am tremendously glad this game exists, but it’s something I’d rather appreciate at a distance.
Fight Crab is a wacky, fun game. While it doesn't have much depth, the sheer silliness of it will keep you entertained for an afternoon. It does support multiplayer, and I found it to be a lot more fun when teamed up with my son. With easy to learn controls, and fast paced battle, you can't help but love Fight Crab.
While the idea of Fight Crab was novel and hilarious, it, unfortunately, fell a tad short because of its average execution. There were a lot of redeeming qualities to the game though, so it was still time well spent.
Fight Crab is something very different and I hope it pays off for Calappa Games.
Fight Crab is an impressively full-featured and surprisingly good-looking game that transcends its silly meme origins and ends up as something much more. It could end up a staple party game with its joyfully nonsensical premise and well-executed crab simulating gameplay, which goes above and beyond what a crab-battling game really needs to be, and we applaud it. Some novelty titles are a complete flash in the pan, but Fight Crab sticks.
