Vlambeer's smash hit SUPER CRATE BOX brings 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.
- "Its high-octane play married with its no-frills, arcade game design keeps me collecting crates and blasting enemies into delightful little pieces of monster." - TouchArcade (5/5)
"Supremely straightforward, criminally addictive, and easily the best retro action title I’ve ever played on iOS." - AppAdvice
"This is one of those triumphs of minimalist design and limited complexity that gets its hooks in you early and never lets go." - Ars Technica
"The effulgent nature of Super Crate Box is reflective of the game's alluring gameplay and artwork that both will draw any gamer in without fail. " - iPhone Alley (5/5)
"But if you're real gamer – and, what's more, a gentleman – then Super Crate Box is without question the game for you." - PocketGamer (Silver Award)
"This belongs up there with Drop7, Solipskier and SpellTower as an example of the very best that the App Store offers." - EuroGamer (9/10)
Super Crate Box won numerous awards, including prizes by IGN, EDGE, IndieGames.com and a nomination for 'Excellence in Design' by the Independent Games Festival. So far, over 85 million crates have been collected worldwide.
Collect crates where-ever you go, whenever you want. Now, Super Crate Box is finally available on the go!
We haven't had the time to properly support Super Crate Box with iPhone 5 support yet. Sorry for the wait and thank you so much for your patience. As soon as we're done with all the work on our next releases, hopefully by February, we'll circle back here and make sure it's fixed. Thanks again!
- Minor bug fixes
- Joypad Console support
- There are still 20+ super-rare golden crates before the next update hits, but we're almost there after a long, long wait: 1.2 will include a bunch of new characters and challenges!
Ratings and Reviews
The game is fine, controls are an issue
This game is great, good ideas and guns and stuff. But what really brings this game down are the tiny buttons and your lack of control over where you can put them. Muffin knight which is really similar has great controls, so i'm disappointed that this game has such terrible controls
Please could you add support for iCade mobile in a future update? The latest version says it supports console joypad(?) so it should be easy to add... After all, the blocks cometh supports iCade mobile (by the same developer).
Ignore all bad ratings
This is one of the best iOS games I have played, simple concept and controls, very addictive and very hard
The only thing bad about it is the steep learning curve and not enough levels
