OverviewOverview

Another Crab's Treasure is a fighting game where you play a crab on a quest to reclaim their shell. As you explore verdant kelp forests, sandy shallows and deep trenches, you fight big crustacean enemies, unlock new abilities, and find new bits of rubbish you can use as shells and weapons to arm yourself with. It stands out for the subtle reminder of ocean pollution, hard yet fair combat and a vibrant world to explore.

Kril is a hermit crab, whose shell gets repossessed. You find an old tin can you use as a temporary replacement and set out on a quest to reclaim it. As you move deeper into the ocean depths, you fight increasingly imposing enemies who each use the trash in the ocean as either an offensive or defensive aid. Along the way, you unlock Umami Techniques which can increase your attacking and defensive powers. Items you find, such as old mugs and soda cans can become shell upgrades, boosting your defence.

Combat is inspired by Demon's Souls and similar games, where precise dodges, parries and attacks are essential to overcoming enemies. Along with the over 50 shells that aid you in different ways, there are many weapons you find each with specific properties. Experimenting with these combinations is key to overcoming the harder opponents. While you can face the bosses quickly for a greater challenge, you're also able to spend time exploring for new shells and weapons, and learning new upgrades, before you face each enemy, lessening the challenge if needed.

The result may sound like a strange mix of a silly underwater adventure and difficult fights but it actually works well as a game that rewards skill and practice, but is still approachable to younger and less experienced players thanks to the option to spend time growing in strength before each fight.
