The new update for Super Crate Box mentioned that there were now more characters to unlock.

I have been playing for a while now (even before the update) and never unlocked new characters.

What do I have to do to unlock new characters?

    For the new ones, it's 1000 crates and 5000 kills. I'm pretty sure that the old ones are unlocked by getting high scores of a certain amount in each level. – agent86 Jan 11 '12 at 18:47
  • Is this question about the PC game, or the ios game? – GnomeSlice Jan 11 '12 at 19:20
  • @GnomeSlice The iOS game. – Ash Jan 11 '12 at 19:39
  • I've unlocked only one character so far, and I've been playing for a couple of days. It's a tricky process, and I really don't have any on-hand info on the correct ways to unlock the characters. However if you have the new update, go into stats, and view the area showing the characters and your unlocked weapons you can view the shadows of other characters. – user18241 Jan 13 '12 at 13:01

Here is a list of the characters currently in Super Crate Box, and how to unlock them (which I've compiled after a fun speedrun through a fresh installation of SCB).

  • Ninja: Score 20 on Ambush mode
  • Astronaut: Score 10 on Moon Temple
  • Crocodile: Score 25 on Construction Yard
  • Robot: Score 30 on Rocket Silo
  • Piklupu: Score 35 on Moon Temple
  • Billy Score 100 points on any map on Normal mode
  • Chicken: Score 50 points on any map on SFMT mode
  • Halfbot: Kill 5000 enemies in total
  • Vlambeer: Collect 1000 crates in total
  • Canabalt (Indie Unlock #1): Score 10 crates by only jumping and running
  • Spelunky (Indie Unlock #2): Score 10 on Moon Temple, Ambush mode
  • Meat Boy (Indie Unlock #3): Die 500 times

For the game to tell you how many crates you have to obtain to unlock the next character, you have to have completed the level-unlocking goal first. For example, in this screenshot, the Score 30 to unlock a new character text appears because I have already scored 20 to unlock the Moon Temple (the next stage).

Starkid- killing a golden enemy. Golden enemies are found when they go into the fire pit several times. TIP: go to moon temple with a good weapon and sit on the sides (bottom) until one appears.

  • This should probably be added to the chosen answer. – Jamie Schembri Jan 18 '13 at 8:11
  • What does the golden enemy look like @Starkid – user71156 Mar 7 '14 at 22:34
