Crab Cakes Rescue reviews and comments

I just write the Review in German because I'm German. Personally, the Game liked great. The Music was very nice, and it matched the Setting! Everything is nice and cheerful, so I like it:D The Background in the Start Menu seems good, just because in the Background a large Ship and a Crab Drive their Mischief and it is funny to look at. In the Beginning you see a little Crab Lady and a Crab "Rüpel," The "Rüpel" afflicts the Lady and she runs on. With that we come into Play, we the little Crab want to save our Lady of the Heart. Irony of Fate; We are willing to pay with life:D More on That! The Game controls itself with "WASD," which is a bit weird! But what are Settings for? You have already made sure that you can change the Controls at your Will! The Idea of the Game is simple but just as awesome:D You are basically killing yourself to create the Level. There are Platforms, and you can't get to without the Tank of the Crab, now you're wondering what to do? You have 12 Tanks if you zsb. Hit by an Electric Trap you are respawns and you have also sailed a Bowl, now comes the exciting Part. Once you have "cleverly" killed yourself, you will get through the Level comfortably. Thought ... Pustekes! From Level 9, I Think the Game attracts other Sides and becomes really challenging. I even find level 9 gets better and better, the Game I liked before just got better and better! Anyway, I find the Difficulty is really fun, because not every Game should be easy. The Game showed me why I miss heavier Games:D Even if it's not ultra sham, it's heavier than most Platters I know. Although you could also take the Game as an Indie Platformer, both fit well as a day:D At any rate, I like the Game very much!

More incompetent developers. Crab cakes rescue, released in 2014, is a platform game where one plays a crab/Bernard-l'hermitte outing that goes to the rescue of his young lady crab/Bernard-l'hermitte in distress. The most: to be honest, there is not really. Maybe the number of levels? There are about 80. This gives about 10-15h of play, depending on your ease in undoing the traps (not wanted by the developer for the most part) that pupullent in these levels. The minus: so, first, there is no joystick support. Really bad for a platformer. Then, already, we start with the best. The broken successes. Why are there? Because level 8 doesn't unlock. So we can not unlock the successes related to the latter. Then the gameplay. Well no animations, it's rigid. No movement, no printing to evolve in a space. Just jump, and get down as dry as if the attraction of the ground is as powerful as that of Jupiter. So, to evolve in these levels full of all sorts of things to kill you or block you, I assure you that it is joy. Then the soundtrack, which is awful. I pass the music, but I insist on one point. The cries of birds/seagulls. I don't know where the dev found these soundtracks, but wow. Maybe this is the only extraordinary thing in this game. Imagine something that you crush, and that makes a little pitiful sound before you die crushed. That is pretty much the idea that I have in any case. In any case, Yes, I know that the game and its levels are done so that one dies, in order to leave crates, instead of bloody boiled as can do Super meat boy, which allow us to climb on it, in order to pass an obstacle or danger , but with the problem of Hitbox, and gameplay in General, it just becomes the horror of passing a simple level. Conclusion: broken successes, broken gameplay, broken gamepad support, broken levels at the end. This is what crab cakes rescue offers you. Good game. ____ If you have found this evaluation useful, come join our curation page and our forums!
