Take advantage of a wide range of equipment to beat your opponent down: claws, swords, guns, armor, jet engines, and more. Stop your opponent’s blade with your pincers, run along walls, and generally go full-on crab with all the fighting techniques at your disposal. Get the total battle crab experience with amazing procedural animations and spot-on accurate collision detection – just like you’ve always wanted to but probably never realized.

Go into battle sporting your very own original avatar on top of your crab!Original avatars can be seen by other players online, so you can show off your bitchin’ avatars to players around the world.
In some completely different, super weird world, crabs have mastered human weapons and taken over the land.
Now immortal, these crabs cannot be killed by gun nor blade.
However, there is one crustacean rule by which all must live:
“He who turns his back to the ground shall know defeat…”
That’s right – get flipped over on your back in battle, and you have no choice but to submit to your opponent.
You must now embark on a journey to become the strongest ever seen, and flip the entire world itself onto its back.
