Fight Crab Review
Posted: 12 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
There are 23 types of playable crab, 48 different weapons, and 11 unique battle arenas. You can fight against one or two opponents and team up with a friend in online co-op battle modes. As you progress you unlock moves, crabs and weapons. You can use the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con motion controls to freely manipulate limbs to punch, grab, and flip your way to victory.
The controls are intentionally obtuse. The D-pad moves your crab and you can double-tap to move quicker. The left and right sticks control a claw each for attacking and the trigger buttons punch while the bumper buttons pinch. This means that movement and attacks rely on a combination of luck and well intentioned flailing, like Goat Simulator, I Am Bread or Octodad.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room and up to 4 players online. You can play split-screen fights, 2 players on Switch and 4 on PC. You can connect locally on Switch if you have multiple consoles and copies of the game.
Cross-Play: You can play across Switch and PC.
