Crab War offers gamers a cool new challenge that goes beyond just winning a battle.
In this fun game by AppXplore Sdn Bhd you must also successfully evolve your crab army in order to take revenge on a hoard of evil reptiles.
Designed to let players really take control of their armies, Crab War is a tantalizing twist on a common concept in app gaming.
As suggested by the app’s name, Crab War is a game featuring a battle of crabs. Specifically, your role in this app is to raise up an army of crustaceans to fight back against their evil reptilian conquerors.
Your control of your crab army is very much within your hands, as it is up to you to choose what line of crab warriors they might evolve into. Successful battles lead to collection of rewards as you advance through the game.
However, my main complaint about Crab War would have to be some lag time I experienced with the app, both during loading of the app and actual gameplay itself.
While this lag didn’t have any serious consequences on my chances of successful gameplay, it did really limit my excitement about the app. The lag was significant enough to tempt me to just not play the game at times, and this problem could definitely negatively affect the appeal of Crab War.
Appearance and Layout:
Crab War boasts of having great graphics for a game of its type, and I’d have to say that I agree.
The color scheme of the app is bright and cheery, a fun twist to the battling theme throughout the game.
Characters of evolving crab lines are decently detailed, and it’s obvious that the app’s designers were intentional in making sure that each crab was unique in its appearance.
I also appreciated the impressive number of crab evolution options you could direct each crab line through.
In-app layout could definitely use some improvement, however, as I felt that the layout was not intuitive. Because of this, getting used to finding your way around the app takes more time than ideal
Crab War is a free app, with optional in-app purchases. These purchases are not necessary for finding success in the app, but they do probably help speed up your progress through the game.
Overall, Crab War is a different kind of game that’s fun, has a well written storyline, solid graphics and well worth checking out.
While the occasional in-app lag can be a turn-off, we expect the developers to quickly address this and those who stick through with Crab War will benefit from its fun storyline and gameplay.
Crab War requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
