Day 11 of Apple’s 12 Days of Gifts: Illusion Labs’ Mr. Crab

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.
