Super 48K Box - Action platformer demake appears on the ZX Spectrum

With the recent opening of the WorldofSpectrum forums after a long downtime, it's no wonder we are now seeing a rush of ZX Spectrum titles to grace our retro gaming screens. From the incredible Stormfinch, to the latest release of the Hobbit 128K, there hasn't been a period this week we haven't had a great homebrew title to play. So without further-ado it's time to announce another ZX Spectrum Demake in the form of 'Super 48K Box' by andrewvanbeck ; an unofficial demake of Super Crate Box by Vlambeer.

Just like the original game but in that speccy style, the goal of the game is to survive as long as possible by using the different weapons obtained from crates to kill enemies that appear at the top of the level. With more crates collected you'll get different weapons ranging from revolvers to missle launchers. Be warned though, with every crate collection comes more enemies and if they touch you it's instant death.

For what it's worth this is a fine remake with quality game play, set with an ever increasing challenge. It's also great to see so many developers now stepping forward and demaking modern games for 8bit systems.
