The Wii U's library is bursting with quirky, innovative, fun games. Crab Cakes Rescue is not one of them.
From the moment you start up Crab Cakes Rescue, its lack of polish is readily apparent. For starters, it runs in a 4:3 aspect ratio, leaving unsightly black bars on either side of the screen. The title is lifted directly from the original iOS version — it's adorned with a single, touchscreen-friendly button that says "PLAY!" The problem? Crab Cakes Rescue doesn't support the Wii U's GamePad in any way, and as the controls are slow the respond hitting the plus button to start doesn't yield an immediate response, which may confuse some.
