Abby Crabby  for iPhone and iPod Touch

Abby Crabby is an original game with nostalgic feel and a modern twist.  Arcade fans will recognize the classic action and gameplay in our undersea take on what some might call a fusion of Space Invaders, Missile Command and the Caribbean.

Unfortunately for these crabs, they live in the Pacific Garbage Patch. Tilt to navigate Abby Crabby across the dangerous waters of the ocean floor as trash falls from above.  Protect the baby crabs by bouncing, catching and throwing thrash with a swipe!


A portion from each sale is donated to the Monterey Bay Center for the Future of the Oceans.

  1. The game is colorful and the animations are crisp.

  2. The sounds are very good and the soundtrack has a nice steel drum feel.

  3. Abby Crabby didn’t take the easy way out by just giving good game play.  You’ll find bonus items like beach balls, dynamite and starts to spice things up, and there are several achievements to unlock.

  4. Unlockables really up the replay factor.

  5. A great pick up and play game that will work for all ages.

A:  Double tap.
