An arcade-action game about a crab hitting apples



Z: Snap left claw

X: Snap right claw

hint: hitting an apple more than once will get you more points, equal to how many times you've hit it.  if you hit it the first time you get 1 point, second time 2 points, etc.

PS: there is exactly one (1) secret.

Cute little game!

haha Nice. It's cute. Love the music. Z/X seem to both snap the crab's right claw, no way to snap the left one. Otherwise, it's cool. I snapped 16 apples.

thats weird, its possible that the two pico 8 buttons are different on your keyboard? i assume its not a US keyboard

This is a standard US QWERTY keyboard. Nothing odd with the hardware. ASUS brand. Came with the desktop. If I press Z the claw on the left of the screen activates. If I press X it also activates the same claw. .........NOOO!!!! WAIT! I'm wrong. I was pressing Z/C for the left and it turns out that X (as advertised) and V handle the right claw. *derp* I made this mistake because my keys are rubbed blank from use and I had a mental moment of confusion. The bug is me. Plus I didn't expect the C to function. We good now. Carry on.
