App description: Samba Panda presents Run Crab Run

Tired of feeling like a fish out of water? Well, we invite you to jump right in; The water is nice and warm!

Join Mr. Crab and Mr. Fish in this epic underwater running adventure that will leave you begging your boss for longer lunch breaks.

Mr. Crab and Mr. Fish find themselves in a bit of trouble when they discover a treasure chest full of gold coins. Pretty cool right? WRONG!! Because this chest is rumored to be haunted by GHOST PIRATES!! Nasty,
mean and terrifying Ghost Pirates!! Oh No!!
It's up to Mr. Crab (with the help of Mr. Fish) to run as fast and far away from the "Ghost Pirates" as he can (or so he thinks).

Can you become the king of underwater running games? Only one way to find out, hit the beach, put on your swimming trunk and snorkel and get ready to RUN CRAB RUN!


Travel to fully 3D and unexplored ocean depths featuring a variety of unique levels while dodging and jumping over obstacles, searching for bottles and collecting starfish along the way. But beware of frisky blowfish and evil catfish, because these fish will make a crabs life very unpleasant along the way.

New updates coming soon with more items, enemies, levels, localization (French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,...etc) and a few more surprises, that will kepp you coming back for more.

Thx bigrand,

We put a lot of love, sweat and tears into this and we hope it gets successful enough, so we can at least keep doing, what we are doing at the moment.

Also we would like to have enough feedback in order to be able to put out an update.

In order to publish the game, we needed to make some harsh decisions on which features to include and which one's to push into an update and we would like to share these new features with gamers.

In any case, we now have three versions in the appstore:
full, lite and hd.

You can download the lite version for free and it contains the full game. The only difference being, that you have only 5 lives, which refresh over time (10 minutes per life), which we think is a fair proposition and it gives you enough time to get other stuff done as well, when waiting for your lives to refresh.

Have a play through and give us some feedback, I played the game for the last 6 months when developing it and it is difficult for me to tell, which parts are most appreciated and which changes would benefit the gamers most.

Many thx from the Panda
