Rating for crabitron

Great game, interesting concept, but a few quirks can ruin the gameplay occasionally. The controls can be hard to use, opening and closing the claws can be troublesome. The main issue I had though was getting your game to pickup all four fingers, without confusing the claws. Also, because I was using four fingers, multitasking view would pop up, so I had to turn that gesture off in settings. Another item that would have been really nice is to show the health of the crab during gameplay. We got clues from the way the crab looked, but a bar would provide a clear cut way of knowing how our crab was.

Thank you very much, from a developer I can see how much work went into this, a few things just need to be sorted out.

Great game but...

I totally agree that this is a fantastic game to waste time or for something to do but my problem is when I start up crabitron the crab is white and has a barcode on him but beside that the game works fine just if the debs could fix it please I'll really like that because a giant white crab with a barcode doesn't look very good

When I brought a second spiky claw the crab was white and had a barcod☹️☹️
