|Totally going on a banana tear.|
The flow and feel of the game is similar the original Mario Bros. Not the platformers with Yoshi or mushrooms. The arcade version with the "Pow!" box and the angry crabs. The difference is that this is single player only (although multplayer would easily put this in my top 5 games of all time) but more importantly, we totally get to go nuts on the green monster things with a diverse arsenal of weapons.
|Looks the same, right?|
See, the focus of the game is on these weapons. The point system isn't based on how many things you kill or how long you survive. Instead, it's based on how many crate boxes you pick up. A new crate box spawns at a randomized location on the map whenever you pick one up, and within these boxes is the weapon you get and use till you get to the next box. In Super Crate Box, there is no weapon of choice because you have no choice.
