    With three stages to play on and dozens of characters and weapons to unlock, Super Crate Box is easily one of the best games on iOS, if not one of the best games in the last five years. Period.

    I'm surprised by how much I dig the virtual controls; Halfbot and Vlambeer did a heck of a job translating the action to the touchscreen and then making it feel as natural, and as split-second responsive as the game's PC and Mac counterparts.

    One of those games you must try and install in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Its gameplay is simple and unique, very demanding if we are not able to adapt, but really addictive if we get engaged by the game.

    A spot-on port of the game that inspired Muffin Knight, Super Crate Box features a retro pixel look, a plethora of weapons, and outstanding touch controls to create a challenging yet thrilling experience.

    Vlambeer deserve credit for making a fantastic game, and along with Halfbot, they deserve a ton of credit for making this a shining example of how to bring this kind of game to mobile properly. Even after all the weapons were unlocked, I still found myself chasing after the unlockable characters and modes that require superhuman-level performances in order to succeed. This sets a high bar for other iOS releases to try and match this year.

    Super Crate Box may not be new, then, but on iOS it's not to be missed. This belongs up there with Drop7, Solipskier and SpellTower as an example of the very best that the App Store offers. It's endlessly cheerful, and cheerfully deadly, and it's the perfect digital companion for the month of January, with its frosty clarity and new years' resolutions. Here is a piece of design that offers a path to true mastery through careful practice. Here is a game that provides unceasing opportunities for self-improvement.
