    I've got a 3GS and it crashes on the initial loading screen for me as well.

    Muffin Knight is a lot of fun. SO i guess I'll probably pick this one up. I just don't see how it could be much better then MK. Except for the retro feel to it

    Being one of the people that said I'm getting it, I felt I should chime in. First off these games get released in NZ first and there doesn't seem to be a ton of super active NZ posters, The ones that are active tend to leave impressions as soon as possible provided they bought the game.

    This forum is for talking about how excited we are for a game as well as the game itself. I haven't found this to be a problem for me at all. I can find a ton of impressions after the game has finally hit the US store and I like reading the excited comments. That's one thing that we all share in common here: our enthusiasm for iOS gaming. If you dislike all of these "pre"comments then only stick to the front page of TA or possibly find a new review site for your information.

    Plus all of the buzz is great for the game's publicity. The more ppl excited for a game, the more views. You should know by now that it's a process: game releases in NZ, people show enthusiam on thread, releases finally catch up in other countries, impressions start to pour in, game talk starts to pour in, then the buzz peaks and will eventually taper off.

    Sweet bajeezus, it's downloading on my iPod right now! I can see the blue progress bar moving and everything! Awesome...


    My impression will be up later

    For those that missed it, the game has just gone live on the App Store worldwide!

    We've also identified an issue with 3GS devices that crashes it at the launch screen. It's quite late here, but we'll find and fix that and try to have an update fixing issues like that ASAP). So sorry about that!

    Wow this is great! Mobile super crate box used to be laggy gameplay on my netbook but now its fluent, lagless, and one of the best gaming experiences and it fits in my pocket! I give it a 5/5

    I absolutely HATE the controls. They are either too close or very unresponsive. I find myself either not moving or jumping instead of shooting or shooting instead of jumping. I still haven't been able to unlock the second level. It took me one try on the MAC version to get 10 crates, I've played close to 15 times on the iPhone. Something needs to be addressed with these controls.

    For the record, I have no problems at all with League of Evil or Mos Speedrun.

    3GS bug here too. I force quit all apps. Boot my phone. Downloaded the app. Boot my phone again, and it crashed on the opening screen. :(

    Edit: I tried Airport Mode and another reboot and still it crashes.

    No offense, but these controls are spot on, and are actually better than what I had hoped. However maybe they could provide different sized controls which are customizable ...

    Let my daughter borrow my ipad2 for the week as I'm out of town working. Downloaded SCB anyway, so very jealous of everyone who gets to play it tonight.


    As for the MK and SCB talk, can mods just keep that from happening in this thread. This thread should be about SCB only in my book as MK has it's own thread and all arguing can be put in a separate general discussion thread imo. oh and then delete this paragraph afterwards please.

    Thanks for the game Vlambeer. Please add an option to move the virtual controls around the screen so we can place them where we want. I need mah Shoot button to be to the left of mah Jump button.

    Also, it appears that any notifications that pop up from other apps during gameplay will kill the sound effects.

    Notifications tend to do all kinds of crazy stuff especially kill the framerate in other apps, does it kill the framerate when other apps notify in SCB?

    My review of Super Crate Box:

    I KILL WITH THIS PIECE!

    -- Kepa

    Controls are great, except for one big drawback - it's really difficult to hold the iPad like I normally do (holding it with my hands and playing with my thumbs) and do both a big jump AND shoot most weapons while jumping.

    To get max jump height, you have to hold jump down. But to shoot most weapons, you either have to be holding the shoot button down, or be jamming the shoot button. Either way, it's kind of tricky to do the air-shots I want to unless I'm using a weapon with a limited firing rate (shotgun, rocketlauncher, etc). My least favorite example of this problem is trying to kill a flying skull with a flamethrower.

    Other than that, it's a flawless port of Super Crate Box.

    Anyone asking for updates, we need to collect 5,000,000 crates. So far there have been 62,795 collected.

    As far as this vs. MK, I like it when games are compared because it gives an overall better impression/feel of how the game is played. If ppl want a separate vs. thread, that should be made ASAP.

    Maybe you're not 6'4" and 225lbs either. I have big hands and the buttons are either too small or too close to one another. I have zero problems with the other games I mentioned. I can even play The Blocks Cometh vertically with no issues at all. These controls for SCB just aren't working for me and it's very frustrating.
