Neat little way to kill some time. Kinda hoped there would be more shells to exploit though.

we might be working on a follow-up :)

Fun concept, but needs more refinement in every area.

Fun game with a good concept!
Only issues I ran into were the hitboxes of the crabs not being very forgiving and the controls felling a bit "off" as well. Maybe with the possibility of remapping the keys, this would make it flow more.

nice game, works really well as a time-killer.

although I have a bit of a hard time understanding how the grade reflects the comment ^^'

Great game, thanks for making!
