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?
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).
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.
