Jolly Octopus likes to hang out with his colorful crab friends. While they may not be the same species as him, they come from a common background, from a shared point-of-view as to how they exist and survive in the ocean - and over the years Jolly Octopus ("Jolly O" to his friends) has come to be quite protective of his little crab buddies, so much so that he causes trouble for anyone who aims to harvest crabs from the ocean like so much wheat and reduce them to nothing more than meaty butter-slathered claws on the dinner plate of some would-be "gourmand".
Thus your job as a crab hunter extraordinaire in Jolly Octopus will require you to carefully extricate your target crabs from Jolly O's protection without brushing his legs and tickling him, for if you do, you can expect to get away with no crabs at the least and a menacing faceful of suckers at the worst. Two speed settings on Jolly O – fast and really, really fast – give you two ways to challenge your crab-plucking skills.
The first player to retrieve all of her crabs from the safety of Jolly O's squishy bosom wins!
