You Can Now Catch Crabs From Your iPhoneS

If you're one of the legion of viewers that tune into the Discovery Channel to watch men catch crabs, you'll be pleased to know you can now catch crabs in the palm of your hand with Deadliest Catch for iPhone.

After a lackluster release on the Xbox 360 two years ago, it's high time fans of Deadliest Catch got their hands on a worthwhile video game that depicts the danger and thrill of crabbing without the tedium and boredom of crabbing. Deadliest Catch for the iPhone sees players picking out a boat and venturing into the icy waters of the Bearing Sea, avoiding rough seas, dodging ice floes, and playing various mini-games, all in the name of making sure quality restaurants like Red Lobster have a special next week.

The game has a majority of favorable reviews so far, so it looks as if Hands-On Mobile might have done the brave men and other men of the Alaskan crabbing community proud.

I joke, but whenever I flip by this show on my cable box I have to stop and watch. I'd call it a guilty pleasure, but that just opens us up to more crab jokes.

Deadliest Catch is now available at the iPhone App Store for $3.99.
