12 days 1

We are nearing the end of the big 12 Days of Gifts event. We’re now on day 11, and Apple has removed the free Sesame Street episode and posted a new item for download. Today’s free gift is the game Mr. Crab by Illusion Labs.

For those who haven’t played it yet, Mr. Crab is a popular vertical arcade game for iOS that auto-scrolls from side to side as you jump your way through levels. It’s a deadly combination of bright graphics and addictive gameplay…

Here’s the description from the App Store:

“Mr. Crab is a super fast arcade game with a twist. Take control of Mr. Crab and jump your way to the top, rescuing as many baby crabs as possible. Just tap on your screen to jump and climb to reach the top of the ever-spinning tower. But be aware, there are some foul enemies that will do anything to stop you.”

Gameplay revolves around jumping. A short screen tap gives you a short jump, and a long tap gets you a long one. There are 27 levels for you to play through, each of them challenging in their own way, and you’ll encounter 4 bosses.

Again, I know for many of you this is going to be yet another disappointment in Apple’s 12 Days of Gifts event. But this game is very well-reviewed, and normally costs $0.99, so I’m sure some folks will be happy to download it for free.

Remember that each gift is only available for 24 hours and it varies depending on your country or region. But if you’re in the US and are interested in getting Mr. Crab for free, be sure to grab the 12 Days of Gifts app from the App Store.

  • Mohamed Hassabo

    I wish for Day 12 they can make us choose whatever we want, whether its a song or an app or a movie, maybe even a limit of how much this item costs ($5?)

    • Mohamed Hassabo

      But it’s apple, probably never happening 🙁

  • WTH

  • Mark Garcia

    The app is pretty fun and hell, it’s free! I’m not going to complain about free! I can’t wait to see what day 12 has to bring!

  • Stefano

    AGAIN, a poor game title which is already free. What the heck apple. Let’s be real; why not an exciting classic title like Touch Grind?

  • Salmon4Coach

    These “free apps” have been stupid as hell.. JT single? Like wtf? Sesame Street book? Wtf? Episode one of once upon of time. Wtf? The only good ones have been the avaci single and it was a freaking single and the rayman game. The rest have been already free and a giant waste of apples time. Why even bother doing this? There’s a day left so let’s see what they do. I bet it will be the lightsaber app for free. Apple has really become one giant ass troll

  • Jonathan

    Hugo was the only good one. *sigh*

    • Neil Marc B. Mejia

      We’re in the same boat you and I. For us registered on the US/Canada version, Hugo was only the ‘great’ deal for me. Although that’s not to say that the gifts were not awesome, they were clearly ‘not my style.’

      Apple should – at the very least, give us $5 worth of iTunes gift card. You know – for a change. However, we’re talking about Apple here, so that’s a no-no for them smh.
