Reviews:
"Crazy high replay value, Future Games Of London has delivered one of the best action games in the AppStore" - App Shack 4.5/5

Future Games of London's comments:
Tired of all the fluffy cutesy safe games that are awash on the App Store?

Need something a bit more edgy, something to bring out your darker side?

In that case Grabatron is the game that you've been waiting for!

The game is based on sci-fi B-movie 'Culture'. You gain points by causing as much chaos a destruction as possible.

There are 42 mini missions to complete with_in this physics based sandbox.


Interact with almost anything, discover hidden caves and bunkers where power-ups and upgrades can be found.

There are no rules, play however you like. The game is simple to get into but contains a huge amount of content and depth that'll keep you playing for a long time.

Looks good, but I'm concerned about the IAP. $5 to upgrade your ship? Can this be done without IAP? plus $2 for Insane Mode and $1 for nukes... as good as the game looks, I'd want to know how these are structured before purchasing.

It's made by the team that made Hungry Shark, so I'm sure the IAP will be pretty heavy. I expect this to go free relatively soon.

It looks very cool IMO...tilt controls only, I assume?

Looks awesome, with some pretty insane action. Somehow reminds me of Super Mega Worm / Deathworm.

I am also curious about what the IAP is like, and especially on what the controls are like.

Haven't checked out the IAPs yet, but you tilt to fly around, tap to let down your claw, tap again to let go of anything you might be holding...

There are calibration and tilt sensitivity options, but no other control schemes.

k... as for IAPs;


You can buy 'Insane Mode' which gives you 'double points but the earthlings put up more more resistance' - costs $1.99

Then a 'Ship Upgrade' which gives you a 'massive armor upgrade, faster top speed, comes pre-equipped with power claw' - costs $4.99

And 'Nukes' - 'wipe out enemies in a flash with these handy nukes, 10 disposable nukes per purchase' - costs $0.99


These are the only upgrades you can 'buy' - but there are upgrades in-game - I just got an armor upgrade while playing my first game.
