Vlambeer 2010, Paul Koller 2013
Vlambeer's Super Bread Box is coming to bring back the glory of the golden arcade age, when all that really mattered was getting on that high score list. Grab your baseball cap and loosen your pants, it's time to fight endless hordes of enemies and collect every weapon crate you can. Prepare for an arcade delight with tight controls, refreshing game mechanics, cracking retro art and a terribly hip chiptune soundtrack.
Super Bread Box is an official conversion of the 2010 indie classic Super Crate Box for the C64 computer, developed by Commodore enthusiast Paul Koller and published on cartridge by Vlambeer and RGCD. A cut-down version of Super Bread Box was developed for the 2012 RGCD 16K C64 Game Development Competition, which it won. Since then it has grown to become a full game that includes almost all of the features of the original, as well as three new and exclusive levels and additional playable characters from the modern day C64 and indie gaming scene!
Exclusive to cartridge, Super Bread Box drop-kicks your Commodore 64 into the 21st century with its award-winning gameplay and dedicated, official website complete with online leaderboards and a worldwide 'total bread boxes collected' counter. Futuristic!
Due to the changes in EU VAT law that went live on the 1st January 2015, this game is no longer available to buy from our Big Cartel store. Instead, the download of Super Bread Box has moved to itch.io, where it is available for free!
The downloadable version of Super Bread Box comes as a cartridge rom image (.CRT) for use via emulation or on real hardware devices such as the Ultimate 1541-II. The download includes a text manual and code sheet.
Super Bread Box has been tested on both PAL and NTSC machines, and works on the C64, C128 and C64GS.
Although the game runs on NTSC hardware, it does suffer from the occasional slowdown due to NTSC machines having less CPU time per screen refresh. As such, Super Bread Box is labelled as NTSC compatible, but designed for PAL systems.
