    We’re coming close to the end of the 12 Days of Gifts event with today being Day 10. Apple has removed the episode of Sesame Street and posted a new item for download. Today’s free gift is the game Mr. Crab by Illusion Labs. For those of you who haven’t heard of it or played it yet, Mr. Crab is a popular vertical arcade game for iOS that auto-scrolls from side to side as you jump your way through levels. It has a good combination of bright graphics and addictive gameplay that holds the attention of many who try it.

    The description from the App Store mentions the following:

    Mr. Crab is a super fast arcade game with a twist. Take control of Mr. Crab and jump your way to the top, rescuing as many baby crabs as possible. Just tap on your screen to jump and climb to reach the top of the ever-spinning tower. But be aware, there are some foul enemies that will do anything to stop you.
    The gameplay involves jumping around – a short screen tap gives you a short jump and a long tap gives you a longer jump. There are 27 levels for you to play through, each of them challenging in their own way where users will encounter 4 different bosses. The game has received many good reviews and normally costs $0.99 so being able to pick it up for free seems like a good deal.

    It should also be noted that the gift is only available until the end of the day so it’s worth grabbing even if you don’t think you’ll play it right away. Also note that the downloads are typically different depending on your country or region.

    This is the first time that the US has been able to participate in Apple’s gift-giving event and thus far it’s been fairly tame. Still, it’s really hard to argue with the price tag of being free.


    If you haven’t downloaded the “12 Days of Gifts” app already, remember to get the 64.7 MB app for free from the App Store.

    The first 12 days was the best. From memory we had a Kings of Leon video, a David Guetta video, Mirrors edge game and possibly Monopoly game too. The only thing I've downloaded this year is the Avicii songs.
