Super Crate Box update submitted to Apple after crate milestone reached
Crate expectations met
That didn't take long.
Just two days after release, players of Super Crate Box have together managed to liberate over 5 million of the cube-shaped objects from the clutches of whatever those creatures are that come down from the top of the screen.
While we're big fans of both manic retro-platformers and arbitrary numbers here at Pocket Gamer, that 5 million has more significance than first appears.Crate news
For one, there are at least 5 million crates in the UK (probably), but, more importantly, it's also the number Vlambeer said needed to be met before it released an update to the game.
You might be a particularly pedantic so-and-so and query this, suggesting, maybe, that the game has already received an update - but that was just to fix the iPhone 3G launcher bug and therefore doesn't count.
True to its word, Vlambeer has posted that it has submitted the first (second - pedantic ed.) update for Super Crate Box to Apple, so expect to see new stuff for the Pocket Gamer Silver Award-winning title popping up on the App Store soon.
