Crab Game is a competitive action game where you play mini-games based on the Squid Game Netflix show challenges. Similar to Fall Guys, each requires you to be the last player standing to claim the win. Here however, the game has a darker feel with players attacking and dismembering each other to win.

There are 9 different challenges include the Red-Light Green-Light simon says challenge where you are shot if you move at the wrong time. The different challenges offer more variety in 28 different locations. Colour Climb involves holding a hat as long as you can while other players try and steal it.

A novel aspect of the game is that you can hear other players who are near you speaking. This proximity chat adds to the tension and comedy of the dark challenges. Like in the TV Show, players fight each other using guns and melee weapons.
