Gameplay in Super Crate Box is extremely simple.
The goal is to collect as many boxes as possible while surviving. Super Crate Box uses the old school “one life only” gameplay rule so once you are touched by an enemy, the game is over and you can restart.
Coinciding with the old school gameplay are the retro 8-bit graphics. There is nothing in the game that will astound or amaze visually; the polished gameplay is the core of the experience with the game.
Unlockable weapons like miniguns, katanas, laser rifles, and dual pistols are your only help. Add in the cast of unlockable characters and Super Crate Box presents its complete experience.
The simplicity of Super Crate Box is what makes it so addictive. Trial and error are the main strategies because the random spawning of enemies is not timed or predictable.
Super Crate Box is excellent because it follows the core gameplay of old school games.
