When there are too many crates in one place, only one person possesses the skills to save the day. Kenneth the crate breaking expert armed with his trusty crowbar will take care of any crate related problem. TOO MANY CRATES is a puzzle game where breaking crates is the name of the game. But you can't just go berserk on every crate you see if you want to break them all. You'll need to stack them to get to new rooms and figure out how to use all the special crates to get to secret rooms. You'll find many ways to break, smash, shoot and explode the multitudes of crates in this mod.

I love that for Too Many Crates they showed the broken conveyor belt. ^^

lol indeed, would have been much cooler if they shown the conveyor belt in action if they had the fixed version, or simply show something more interesting(maybe sniping boxes on the roof would have been more exciting :P)

Ergh so many errors this time... There is not a whole lot I can do for that one tho, unless I sit down and re-record and re-sync which I'll have to do at a later date.

Sorry for being A blatant copy of Douche McNitPick, but the name of the mod "Too Many Crates!" is misspelled in this article.

A big amount of minuses, i am eagerly anticipating them...

Thanks for adding us to the spotlight Henley :)

An exciting super fast raceway map from our latest update with someone who knew what they were doing would have helped make us not look so boring though lol :)

Peace *wink*

Don't think I am not greatful! *runs*

Only... and only once in a while. Also 2d / pseudo-2D games/mods are mostly overlooked (I remember only Median and Twisted Insurrection to be a bit spotlighted).

A mod which crashes after 10minutes of playing wins? :P
Well, one time it crashes after just entering a mech (2min gameplay)
Second time held a little longer until a fight came up, and the third time it happened randomly while walking into a fight zone from the garage. 4th time will not happen - the game loads too long. >_>

you do know that it is a BETA release right?

KorJax Jan 2 2010, 5:35pm replied:

There's a hotfix you know.

And you should play the mod on a clean crysis install - if you don't the punk buster will cause problems. And don't forget to clear your shader cache located in my documents/crysis/shaders before you play to allow the game to regenerate the shaders for MWLL (the latter is the #1 cause of crashing with players).
