Posts Tagged Crabs and Penguins

There’s a new game out on the App Store called Crabs & Penguins, and the origins of the game itself are somewhat interesting. The game is actually sponsored by Coca-Cola, and players can collect Coke bottle caps for bonus points in the game. There’s also McDonald’s logos that appear in the game. This is the second mobile game that Coca-Cola has sponsored, including Axon Runners which released recently, and actually has a new free version out.

Otherwise, this is an auto-runner where players control a crab that must collect sand dollars and stars to score points and increase the score multiplier. The game isn’t easy to get three stars in a level in; it takes some legitimate skill and mastery of the levels to get those high ranks. The game is very detailed visually, and is a big download at over 500 MB when installed on the device. The game is actually free, unlike Axon Runners’ paid version, though the Coke licensing feels a bit more apparent in this game. I mean, eventually the crab is riding on a Coke bottle through the latter half of the game’s 6 levels. No such thing as a free lunch.

Five For Friday: Week Of June 29

How the heck is it the end of June, already? If you’re UK based like myself, you won’t have even experienced much of a summer yet, courtesy of our crazy wet weather at the moment. Still, whether we like it or not, this is the last Five For Friday of June and we’ve got a great bunch to look at.

Crabs and Penguins
A freebie from Coca-Cola, Crabs and Penguins is exclusively for the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and New iPad. Thanks to that, it’s a casual platforming game that offers some stunning graphics. Players can explore a tropical paradise with the side effect of shark infested waters, as they discover sunken pirate ships. This should prove an ideal one to play with the family over the weekend.

The Sonnets by William Shakespeare
Besides his many fantastic plays, William Shakespeare also found the time to write 154 sonnets and love poems. This app offers every sonnet as performed to camera by an impressive cast.

BurgerQuest
Who doesn’t like a burger? At least, when that burger is made out of great ingredients and cooked to perfection, that is. BurgerQuest should make finding such a burger easier. It’s an app that enables users to share their favorite burgers with others around the world, thus serving as a recommendation service for great burger joints. There’s also a world ranking of the top ten burgers for fast consultation.

Gabi
The official Facebook app for iOS is far from the most attractive. Gabi should fill this requisite while we await iOS 6 and the introduction of Facebook integration. The app offers a beautiful way of interacting with the service, filtering content according to what’s popular and relevant to the user. It shows the best of what the user’s friends have to offer, rather than everything. The more you use it, the more Gabi figures out what the user’s preference is.

Doodle Fit 2: Around The World
Doodle is a popular word on the App Store. Doodle Fit 2 doesn’t have anything to do with Doodle Jump, however. Instead, it offers a series of different puzzles and brainteasers as the player explores the world. 200 levels are available with the tantalising proposition of level creation and online multiplayer. All for the minimal price of $0.99.
