About This Game

Vlambeer's SUPER CRATE BOX is coming to bring back the glory of the golden arcade age, when all that really mattered was getting on that high score list. Grab your baseball cap and loosen your pants, it's time to fight endless hordes of enemies and collect every weapon crate you can. Prepare for an arcade delight with tight controls, refreshing game mechanics, cracking retro art and a terribly hip chiptune soundtrack.

Get this game. It is worth all of the 12 seconds of download, 3 seconds of installation, and hours of time-wasting it has to offer. Especially since it's free. If you don't get this, all the children you didn't have will weep, and their tears will forever salt the fields you plow. You shall never again taste the rewards of victory, and your sheep will cry in fear.

Get this game.

Your non-children need this.

Your sheep need this.

You need this.

It's a fun game, but I cannot possibly recommend it in this state. The incessant crashes are an annoyance.
Please fix it.

Super crate box is fun a great arcade like platforms shooter thing.
Why then do I give it a bad review well one reason it crashes all the time
and its not my computer i play other games like "Just Cause 2" and that runs
fine but this crashes you never know when but it does.
If they fix this then I will change my review.....but from the little bit of the game i did play it was fun

Fun if you plug in a controller to fix the lag (wat) until it crashes and won't restart because it's "still running" (crashes appear to only be on Windows 8)

Free is nice, but it should at least run without random lag and crashing

EDIT: As others have said, if you don't have Windows 8 give it a go

EDIT 2: I got Super Crate Mod and now it runs without crashes or lag, controller or no

Apesar de ser Free to Play, é um ótimo jogo!
Eu vi um youtuber jogar ele em um dos seus vídeos e resolvi tirar a prova viva para ver se o jogo era bom mesmo, e pode acreditar, é MUITO BOM!
As fases são hiper mega rápidas, com um arsenal imenso de armas pra você brincar e ainda por cima com bons gráficos mesmo se tratando de um jogo 16 bits. Para quem quiser passar o tempo no Steam esse jogo é uma ótima pedida!

10/10 - This game is essentially what a free-to-play game should be. There are no microtransactions, and everything you obtain is done by just skill, no unlocking things with real money. The game itself is actually pretty good, this game requires as much skill as it does precision, and the maps are well designed to keep a consistant challenge, with no exploits. Great game, great challenge, great arsenal of weapons and very good design.

The disc gun makes the game even more challenging though so just try to avoid it.
