About This Game

Hack, slash, and smash your way to victory in this newly updated edition of the insanely popular 2D arcade adventure from The Behemoth! Up to four friends can play locally or online and save your princess, defend your kingdom, and crash some castles!

Key Features:

  • (NEW!) Back Off Barbarian mini game: Jump and hop across the level to avoid the enemies!
  • Unlock more than 25 characters and over 40 weapons!
  • Intuitive combo and magic system: Unlock an arsenal of new attacks as your character progresses through the game.
  • Level up your character and adjust Strength, Magic, Defense, and Agility.

A new optional texture quality setting located in the Game Settings Menu. Once the game has been updated, this mode will not be on by default.

Really fun game if you can get 4 friends together. Only problem is that it seems to get insanely laggy if you get more than 2 players together :/ .

Another addictive casual game. Super satisfying to beat once, but not much replay value after you beat it a few times. Great for mindless fun with friends.

Castle crashers is an amazing rpg-action-adventure game with online multiplayer.

Pros
Fun gameplay co-op or not.
Many characters, weapons, pets/animal orbs.
Upgrade-able characters.
Different areas with shops and arenas to get new characters.

cons
The corn boss
Short-ish story
Insane/Hard mode is pretty hard in singleplayer
The corn boss
THE CORN BOSS


But in all seriousness, the corn boss isn't that bad, its just tedious because he teleports away and gets faster the lower the health he has

All in all I give this game a solid 9.5/10 not joking. This game is amazing BUY IT

Castle Crashers is a pleasant conglomerate of medieval-based fighting, magic, and poop jokes that's best played with friends.

Pros--
>Approachable and decently challenging in difficulty
>Goofy and fun graphics
>Tons of characters and unlocks
>Leveling up only agility

Cons--
>Corn boss
>Most of the fighting is a test of how long you can juggle enemies
>♥♥♥♥ corn boss dude

Well worth the money.

One of the best party games I've ever played. The game has a massive amount of detail and polish to it. The game is short to an extent but you will be replaying it around 5-6 times just to unlock everything, if not more! I have completed this on Xbox 360 multiple times, so ignore my time played.

I give it 10/10 Prunes

Loved that they made this game available for PC play. The default key bindings are wonky and I feel they were poorly chosen for someone without a controller. This game really isn't difficult without a controller, I'm not sure why they are pushing for one so hard. An easy recustomization of your key bindings isn't too hard.

Fun overall old gem of a game. It was great for the era it came out in and is still fun to replay to this day.
