Crab Cakes Rescue - review

This is part of a NLife review...

Crab Cakes Rescue is a bad port of an uninteresting game. Its stiff controls, sloppy menus and confusing power up system leave the game feeling like a beta more than a finished product. Forgettable music, poor animation and a lack of replay value combine to make this one of the worst games available on Wii U. Stay away. Far away.
