    Whether or not you've got a friend (or toddler) to play Crabitron with in this unintentional co-op mode, you really need to check the game out as Crabitron is a perfect example of how to intelligently craft a game for the iPad that really could only exist on the iPad.

    Surely the world's first giant crab simulation game, Crabitron is unique and brilliant.

    The most fun you'll ever have with an intergalactic crustacean, Crabitron's a ton of fun that can be shared with a nearby friend.

    We could never have imagined that playing as a smiling crab would be such fun.

    Crabitron's charm wins out. [July 2013, p.85]

    Crabitron makes you realize that you’ve always wanted to play a giant space crab.

    It has the de rigueur iOS mission structure - complete x number of objectives to increase your crab rank - and power-ups to spend your in-game coins on, but the joy of Crabitron is in just grabbing a claw or two and making a big old mess.
