Grabbit’s back with some new tricks
Rebuilt using unity, Grabbit 2 is a completely new version with all the features from the first version but now with some more bugs and a local network mode.
Use your tongue to catch as many bugs as you can. – that’s pretty much it!
1. Figure out where you want to shoot your tongue
2. Tap there to shoot!.
Catch as many bugs as you can before the timer runs out. Every 30 bugs you catch gives you 15 secs extra time and moves you up a level for higher scoring bugs
A 60 second dash to catch as many bugs as you can – no time extensions here – and all of the different bugs are up for grabs from the start
Split your screen in two and go head to head against a friend in a game of Frenzy
Hook up with some friends on your local network and play a game of Frenzy. Up to four players can be in the one match.
Meet the bugs
Here are some of the bugs you will encounter in your travels
The most basic of bugs – easy to catch
A little bit faster but still easy to catch
A little bit faster and more random
The fastest and most random of the basic bugs
Small, fast and very random
A little bit slow, but will sometime fight back
Slow moving but gives you a shock if you try to eat it when it is lit up
Strong, but not fast. Takes 3 hits to defeat
Large slow bug. Explodes into a cloud of smaller bugs when hit.
Smaller than the normal bugs, they fly in single file across the screen
10pts each, with some bonus points if you get them all. In Classic you also get a 10sec time bonus if you catch them all
Here are the different power-ups you may see in the game:
These power-ups will give you a bit of an advantage
Protects you from most hazards and speeds up the speed of your tongue
Makes your tongue twice as wide so it is easier to catch bugs
Gives you a secondary frog to control
Slows down the the world so it is easier to catch the bugs
Makes all the bugs on your screen grow so that they are easier to catch
Gives you a random power-up from this list
Head to Head Good Power-ups
These power-ups will slow down your opponent (only available in head to head)
Covers up your opponent’s screen with an ink splat so that they cannot see properly
Causes your opponent to get struck by lightning
Makes all the bugs on your opponents screen shrink so they are harder to catch
Ties a knot in your opponents frog so it is harder for them to catch bugs
Drops a crate on your opponents head
Causes an Anvil to fall on your opponents head
Avoid these if you can – they will slow you down.
Covers up your screen with an ink splat making it hard for you to see
Ties a knot in your frog’s tongue reducing your overall range
Makes all the bugs on your screen shrink so they are harder to catch
Causes you to be struck by lightning
Drops a crate on your head
Drops an Anvil on your head
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.
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.
By playing the single player games – Classic and Frenzy – you earn rewards that can be used to customise the look of your frog.
The longer you play, the more rewards you will unlock, and the bigger variety of looks you can make.
If you want to speed things up, you can choose to watch an add to decrease the time between rewards, or pay to unlock all of the rewards in one go.
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
