Pretty much the same concept as the Mr Crab 1, levels are a lot richer and there are more customization options. First few levels are free, then there's a premium unlock.

Mr. Crab 2 from Illusion Labs feels a lot like coming home to an place where you have been for a long time before you have left. Everything is still where you would expect it to be but here and there are tiny details that have changed and therefore everything feels and looks a lot better then before.


Collecting those small Crabs still is as enjoyable as it was in the first Mr. Crab Game back in 2013. Running around while trying to collect all small Crabs in the Level is now a lot more challenging then it was in the first Game since the Levels aren`t only much, much bigger but also more challenging the further you dig into the Game.


Besides those small Grabs you can collect Gold Stars in the Levels that you can afterwards change into optional Accessories (Clothes,..) at an Gift Mashine.




As already explained before the Levels are way bigger then before and you can also now collect more small Grabs during your Rodeo up to the exit in each Level.


The bigger Levels are, as far as I can tell after the first couple of Minutes with the Game, seperated most of the time in two or more parts and so you often will have to replay those Levels till you will understand how to obtain every single small Crab in the Levels so dont expect it to be an easy run as the first Mr. Crab Game was.


The current Build is very limited so you will have probably played through it in a couple of minutes and probably collected every small Crab in the Game in less then one hour till you will have to decide if you want to buy the Full Game for around $9,99 or not.


Conclusion:



Bigger Levels & more small Crabs = Price Increase of 10x compared to what the first Mr. Crab Game cost when it did Launch?

I`m not sure if those that have never played before the first Mr. Grab will be willing to hand out that among of money for an Casual Game but I`m not here to judge the current Price Tag so I will focus more about what the limited Build has so far offered or what we know of how Illusion Labs does runs their Business nowadays so stick with me since the answer to the question in the Headline might suprise you in the end.

The Core Gameplay Mechanics in Mr. Grab 2 work very well and in combination with the bigger Levels and the among of small Crabs that are hidden in the Game there isn`t any reason why I wouldn`t recommend the Game to anyone that enjoyed playing the first Mr. Grab at all.

Mr. Grab 2 feels a lot more smoother & more polished then the first Game has and a lot of that fact is simple because the longer Levels feel a lot more enjoyable then those tiny and small one of Mr. Grab back in 2013.

If you enjoyed playing the first Mr. Grab Game and want to get a better Version of it that has more to offer you probably have already hand out those $6,99 without any second thoughts.

For those that are unsure about if the Game would be worth that much let me remind you that Illusion Labs is one of those Developers that support their Game for years with new content. Considering that the first Mr. Crab was supported still more then two years after it had launched I would even go as far as that that if Illusion Labs would offer an discount in the first Launch Week of Mr. Grab for the Premium Pack that everyone that would say that the Game does cost too much don`t understand the Value they would get in return.

So are those $6,99 (AUS 9,99) too much for Mr. Grab 2? I don`t think so since the current Build showed me already in the first hour that it would be 100% worth it by taking into account that there will more Levels follow at some later point in the future as they already did for the first Mr. Crab Game.

Rating: 5 + 1 Extra Crab for the bigger Levels.

I loved the original Mr Crab so I bought the full game here without even playing it yet. But now that redribbon has said this is so much better than the first I think I'd better finish off the levels I hadn't completed in the original before touching this one!

Just absolutely gorgeous! LOVIN' the looks of this! You know-- the first Mr.Crab is a rare breed in that it's one of a very few that stays on my device forever! There's only one complaint about it, and that is there's no Android version! Would love to have it on my phone too! Maybe this one will!! Small complaint, though. In any event, it will find a happy home on my iPad to be sure! Can't wait to play this version! Graphics alone are blowing me away! If there's any promo codes, the dev can freely send me one via PM and I would totally appreciate it!!! I wanna be playing this yesterday!! 😃

$6.99 US. I really enjoyed the first Mr. Crab, so I will likely spring for this. It looks really lovely, but I could do without the customization stuff; it looks like free-2-play trappings.
