One of the best F2P games on steam

Pros:
1 8bit Graphics are nice like a blast from the past
2 is pretty hard but a game being hard is a dumb complaint / exuse to hate it
3 The idea of a lot of diffreant weapons i like a lot
4 The simple yet charming concept is good you just go and get crate but you try not to die


CONS: D:
1: sorta obvoius but my first con is you die in one hit.i wish you didnt die in one hit but meh its okay now
2: It doesnt really have diffrent content or minigames or a diffrent concept id like to see that
3: also if you guys do update this heres what would be intresting
3.1 3 diffrent mode or 4. 1 is Starter (Slighly Less Spawn Rate of Enemys and crates appear more often with weapons that have long range like flamethrowers)
3.1 2nd mode is Normal (Normal Spawn Rate Normal Speed bassicly the game how it is)
3.1 Challanger (Faster Enemies More Red Enemys and a Higher Spawn rate)
3.1 Expert (Very Fast Spawn rate -ALL RED ENEMIES- Some crates have Nothing and those ones dont give you a point for it)
3.1 TRUE HELL (Extremly Fast Spawn Rate bigger lava pit 50% crates have nothing and no points gained by them and enemies have 3 AREAS to come from Right Left and Top ---The Floating Enemies turn red and are more powerful--- There is a 60% chance for most enemies to be bigger (The Red Enemies or the Big Red Ones take even more force to kill them and the katana does not chance there direction)
3.2 Only 2 cons so yeah
3.2 I think that the game is a tiny bit too hard and like ive said with the past few entries it should have modes for your type of playstyle.

So Overall Super Crate Box is a pretty fun game it has a lot of difficulty but there are so many games out there that are proably harder (Bullet Hells for example) id give this a

A frantic arcade shooter where every point scored forces a random weapon change. The weapons vary wildly in quality and you never seem to get stuck with the one you actually want. Small amount of maps but you really only need the first one, which is perfectly balanced for the gameplay. The random nature of the game makes it difficult to recommend as a points shooter since you're looking at a different experience each time. I love this game though because it's the perfect "boot up for 10 minutes" kind of game - marathon play sessions or even attempts at mastering it are pretty much pointless, but if you look at it as a guaranteed way to blow off a few minutes of steam while you wait for a download or something, it's perfect. Should come preinstalled on Windows along with Solitaire.

Great game on its own, But its real potental comes from the fact that its so low usage and so small altogether that you can run it while playing other games, its perfect because you could leave it running during something and if you have to wait you can bust it out play for a few mins and go back to your game when ready. Its a mastapiece in terms of free games. 420/69 would recommend.
