App description: 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 Ive 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're supersorry for any inconvenience there, we didn't expect that to happen at all. We'll let you know the second it goes live!

Talk about highly anticipated... we've all been waiting for this release for a long time.

Have to say, gotta love the pixel art and miniature characters.
