(Development page containing very detailed information)

I came up with the idea after reading the short science fiction story called Crabs Take Over The Island. In the story, mechanical self-replicating crabs gain control of their own evolution in the midst of an endless battle royale. The defeated crab is destroyed and its materials used to make a new crab. The killing crab rebuilds the dead crab metal into a new crab in its own image, thus simulating reproduction. Survival of the fittest. A reasonable evolution simulation.

This is a fun, fast-paced combat game with 13 abilities and 11 unique items. You start from humble beginnings and begin to learn new skills; combat becomes more complex and skill-based.

See for yourself. Host it on B.net or play with computer AIs.

    Funny idea, mayby you could add an option to make the camera follow your crab and make it possible to select the shop at the push of a button. And make the game auto select your crab when it lands after bouncing/being thrown.

    It's funny but it takes forever to finish this game. After some time the game gets repetative and dull.

    yes it was fun really but it gets pretty boring in the long run.

    but I really have to say it was really fun in the beginning 3/5

    Is that a reference to Red Crab migration?
