Nobody likes crabs. In various contexts, they're just a pain. So, perhaps Konami
and developer Frozen Codebase
are tapping into some perfect hatred here with WiiWare title Sandy Beach
Beyond the screenshots (found in the gallery below), we did get in touch with the game's producer, Eric Francksen. He tells us there are two modes in the game: One is just "free play" where players build their own castles, while the other is "crab battle." Sandy Beach
's crab battle game is reminiscent of Rampart
or Defend Your Castle
. Players are tasked with surviving waves of pirate crabs, then rebuilding and adding defenses between waves. We were told that Konami will reveal a release date at a later time.
