Each round brings faster and faster game play action.

Retro arcade fans will recognize the classic action and addictive gameplay in our undersea take on what some might call a fusion of Space Invaders, Missile Command and the Caribbean.

Fun for kids and adults of all ages. The game starts off slowly making it accessible to the youngest players. More experienced gamers will be challenged as they progress through the rankings and collect achievements.

Hasn't this game been in the store for about a year?

appshopper shows it as a new app as of Oct 29, maybe it was pulled and re-released?

Yep

It's damned near impossible to move applications between companies. You can either ask Apple to do it manually for you, which could a couple months... or the companies can do it themselves in a couple weeks. I suppose it looks like a new application once all the dust settles.

Hope you're enjoying Abby Crabby!
