This game is good.

An incredibly well made arcade game that introduces an inventive concept- weapon powerups are the score. These crates are how you increase your score, and enemies are there just to stop you from getting them. Huge amount of weapons, different soundtracks that will make you want to jiggle in your chair, and a decent amount of characters (cosmetic only) keeping gameplay always interesting. This is an arcade game, so playing on a gamepad is recommended, as it feels more fluid than a keyboard.

If you made it this far into the review then you should get this game.

Super Crate Box is extremely fun to play, and I did so on a console before that thing broke down.
I am happy that it's finally been released for Linux!

An original arcade game. Whereas other games would have given you a higher score based on how many monsters you kill, this one requires you to get crates. Every time you take a crate, your weapon changes, and obviously some are more powerful or easier to use. The fun comes from finding the balance between killing ennemies so that you're not overwhelmed and getting the crates, even when it means losing your favorite weapon. A game feel you rarely experience.

Super Crate Box is a great game for when you have a hankering for a more classic arcade-vibe type game. It's got a simple objective, simple controls, and a great game feel. It feels great to run around with all the various weapons, collecting new ones, and slaying foes with them. Each weapon has it's own distinct feel and usefullness, all which to contribute to a game with lots of replayability. Overall, this is a great free to play game, and I think everyone should download it and try it out.

Super Crate Box is a great little game.
The concept is simple: collect crates, however, this is easily said then done. Nevertheless, the difficulty level is a great because it provides challenge but not fustration (most of the time). The weapons ranges from a pistol to a laser rifle; over time you build up certain play styles for each weapon. As well, with a range of unlockable characters and stages it can provide hours of play to try to unlock a couple of things. Because of the simple setup, and the fact that it is availible offline, I play this game while others are updating. Plus, It's FREE!

In short, this game is fanatastic in many ways.
