If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding lemon bars recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1) 2 cups Flour
2) 1/2 cup Sugar
3) 1/4 teaspoon Salt
4) 2 sticks (1 Cup) Salted Butter, Cut Into Small Cubes
5) Filling
6) 1-1/2 cup Sugar
7) 1/4 cup Flour
8) 4 whole Large Eggs
9) Zest And Juice Of 4 Medium-sized Lemons
10) Powdered Sugar, For Sifting

Directions:

1. For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with butter.

2. Stir together the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter to the bowl and use a pastry cutter to cut it all together until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press into the prepared pan and bake until golden around the edges, about 20 minutes.

3. For the filling: Stir together the sugar and flour. Crack in the eggs and whisk to combine. Add the lemon zest and juice and mix until combined. Pour over the crust and bake about 20 minutes.

4. Allow to cool in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours, then sift powdered sugar over the top before cutting into squares.

(Use an 8 x 10 pan if you'd like the layers to be a little thicker.)

This game is much too punishing for me. I can kill dudes. I can collect crates. But it is practically impossible for me to collect crates and kill dudes at the same time. especially when the ones I fail to kill just come back faster. What makes it the most punishing though, is the fact that everytime you collect a crate is randomizes your weapon. Perhaps if I could stick with the flamethrower as I collect crates I might find this game enjoyable, but as it stands if I want to get any points I have to pray to the RNG that I don't get stuck with a slow weapon when I've got twenty enemies on screen.

Almost as addicting as coffee, candy or cocaine, yet slightly enraging, like cocaine. This game is cocaine.

I don't see any reason why someone wouldn't have this game in their library. It's free to play and excellent at killing time in 5 minute intervals

Oh boy crashing twice in the first 4 minutes is awesome! (I have 0.1 hours by just sitting on the main menu so that I could leave this review in hope of the developer seeing it)

The game also crashes really badly, it continues to run in the background invisible to Task Manager and steam insists that it is still running, so once it crashes once, you have to restart your machine to try again.

Super Crate Box is a game so simple and self-explanatory that it’s hard not to enjoy. Vlambeer’s arcade-style survival platformer is a great little game that tasks players with collecting crates that randomly spawn around the side-scrolling arena while waves of enemies wander about on set paths. It’s the least complex thing imaginable, but it works really well, particularly as a ‘pick up and play’ type of joint. It’s not something to be taking extremely seriously, which is its greatest asset.

Unfortunately, Super Crate Box is plagued with some pretty awful optimisation, at least on Windows PCs. Thankfully, a community patch is available that fixes some of the more severe problems, as well as add in some content that was inexplicably cut from the final game.
