Grabbit

Guide your frog to eat as many bugs as he can before the time runs out! Be warned though, the bugs will fight back!

Grabbit is a fast paced action game of skill, accuracy and endurance where you use your frog’s tongue to swat as many bugs as you can. With arcade style power-ups, hazards and 3 different styles of play you are sure to be wearing your fingers out.

Charity Pledge – Updated

When I first made Grabbit I had hoped that it would take the world by storm and that I would be able to raise a bunch of money for the Melbourne’s Children’s Hospital.  Over a year later I am nowhere near hitting my 50k downloads goal, so I’ve decided to make Grabbit a free download, and donate the small amount of earnings that I did make to the hospital.  I just have to figure out how much that actually is

Thanks to everyone that downloaded the game.  I hope that you’ve had fun (and are still having fun) playing it :D

Lightning Power-up Lightning – causes your opponent to get struck by lightning

Hazards

Anvil Hazard Sometime a Bee will carry in an Anvil with the intention of dropping it on your head. If you are quick enough you can get the bug before he is over you and he will safely drop the anvil next to you.
Crate Hazard Just like an Anvil, a Bee will sometimes carry in a crate. The only difference is that a crate will sometimes contain a power-up that is released when it breaks open.

Tips and Tricks

Here’s some tips for getting good scores

  • Don’t stop – Try and keep a steady pace and don’t take too long to thing about it
  • Accuracy over speed – you can’t shoot again until your mouth is closed so don’t waste energy constantly swiping
  • Go for Combos – the score you get for catching bugs in multiplied by the combo. Great Combos give you 10x the usual score, and Mega Combos give you 20x the normal score
  • Keep a both hands free – the twin combo can be really powerful, but its hard to use with just one hand
  • Go nuts with the Invincible power-up – especially when going up against Fire Flies.
  • Grab the bugs carrying the Bad Power-ups – they are worth 100pts. Just avoid the power-up once it starts to fall
  • Tap to recover – if you get stunned, start tapping on your frog to make him recover faster
  • Have fun – its just a game after all
