Not too shabby, but there's not enough levels and unlockables for me to get into the game.

Super Crate Box is a Free 2D Retro shooting platformer game. Hard to play. Had 8bit music and 8bit graphics.

Try it, only if you like Retro games.

It was buggy, it didn't like my keyboard, one key automatically stuck. I was able to get it to work for a few minutes and tried playing the Tutorial. I died badly, could not play very well.
I don't like platformer games much, and was not impressed with the Retro look, the song was catchy for a few minutes.

For more info see these youtube videos.

Review gameplay from TotalBiscuit.

What is Super Crate Box:

They give you sh*t weapon for the each box you acquire (and you can't even change the weapon) and they keep throwing sh*t load of monsters at you. ♥♥♥♥♥ this game!

I recommend this game for those who'd like to realise the meaningless of your life and/or like to rage-break your PC. :3

Another fun vlambeer game bogged down by bugs and poor quality in general
-Tons of users suffer from gamebreaking crash bugs.
-Hitboxes for player and enemy collision are much bigger than the sprite seems to imply
-Many of the weapons are bad, which puts you at the RNG's mercy
-did a box spawn on the lower levels of the arena? good luck getting back up with those dual pistols, or even disc gun!

I don't know what I was thinking when I bought this game."oh it might be a stupid free to play". but I was wrong. dead. wrong. This game is hard as heck. I love it. It's like a platformer . Old school gamers should feel right at home in this shooter-platformer

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.

Though on the surface Super Crate Box may look like a silly, 5-minutes of intertainment kind of game, it's very well thought out. The gameplay is exciting and well balanced, and a variety of unlockable weapons and gamemodes keep things fresh. Though its fun just to causally boot up and play for a few minutes to kill some time, SCB seems to have an endlessly high skillcap, and it's really neat to see how your skills improve over time. Also, it's free! :D
