Maximum Games Releases Crab Cakes Rescue® Today

Posted on Nov 14, 2014 | Press Releases

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – (November 14, 2014) – Crab Cakes Rescue, a brand new puzzle game with a diabolical twist, arrives for PC and Mac today on Steam, as well as in the Mac App Store, announced Maximum Games. Players will take on the role of the cute hero, Pickles, navigating across a fun yet danger-filled beach in a desperate attempt to save his girlfriend, Patty Cakes. The game features a unique element that requires Pickles to actually “fail” in order to succeed. However, players must do so strategically in order to clear each unpredictable level!


In a mission to save his beloved girlfriend, Pickles must shed his shell by purposely falling into hazards to create building blocks used to escape challenging situations. Faced with over 100 levels to pass, the determined crab will also need to avoid a number of kooky obstacles like pesky seagulls, electric currents, lighting, and lobsters.


Crab Cakes Rescue is surprising in the best possible way,” said Luke Shelnutt, Producer at Maximum Games. “The backdrop is cutesy, but the gameplay is tricky and highly addicting.”


Each time a shell is shed, a block is created and your crustacean body is shrunk. Players must use their shells wisely and experiment with different ways to evade hostile enemies and dead-ends.


“It’s one of the only games where it’s actually beneficial to become smaller and less protected,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games. “In a sense you have to unlearn everything you know about traditional video games, which makes the game all the more appealing.”


Developed by Mission Critical, Crab Cakes Rescue is available as a PC and Mac download on Steam, and in the Mac App Store, starting today for $9.99. Crab Cakes Rescue is rated E by the ESRB. For more information visit Maximum Games at www.maximumgames.com.
