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!

With the new Barbarian Makeover Update, Castle Crashers now delivers uncapped framerate and a new Ultra texture quality mode. We even built a new, fast-paced multiplayer minigame just for you and your friends!

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. Players must go to the Game Settings menu and manually toggle it on. Please note, this setting will not perform the same on all systems. It is intended for use on high spec gaming systems and requires a 64-bit OS. So use at your own risk!

I would overly describe my experience with this game as a very fun pass time with a friend, younger sibling, etc. I first played this game in another state at my cousins house with my little brother. My little brother and I manadged to get through about half of the game. Well when we got home I instantly bought it on my ps3 at the time; and finished it. The game manages to be very laybacked then intense very fluidly. As well as constantly keeping it fun/cynical tone through out the entire game. The game is a must play with a friend, but by yourself I would say it isn't worth it. I say get it when its in a sale. I however never played this game by itself and it might be just as fun in single player as it was in multiplayer. But in my opinion this is one of the best couch games with a friend I've ever played.

Castle Crashers® is a 2D Beat 'em up set in a medieval fantasy world.

You're a... Let's be honest, we're not here for the story, we're all here for a glorious pilgrim full of enemies, princess’s kisses, pvp, playable characters, pets, weapons, magic, archery, evil wizards, dark humour, cool easter eggs and a great time with friends. If you're looking for all or a single one of those, this is a game you have to play.

Such a great beat'em up game. My first game on Steam and this really was worth the $15 paid (I know, I'm an idiot for not buying during 'SALES'). Extremely recommended, especially since the HD update a while back has made the experience more breathtaking!

Gameplay is pretty fun (specially with friends) and it's also pretty diverse!
_
story...well these kind of games don't need a very complicated story ... "just go save our princesses" will do just fine!
_
graphics are cool , very colorful , no bug (!) , wont make my eyes tired ...(didnt expect more from a indie game)
_
musics are absolutly awesome imo , specially when you're in the map or near the blacksmith (some super funny musics)
_
so... yeah... go get it... trust me you wont regret it :)

Imma tell a story. So my cousin, brother and I we're goofing around on the Xbox then my cousin said while browsing the xbox store said this game looks cool lets try it! We bought it downloaded it and launched it. I was the Blue Knight my brother was the orange, and my cousin was the red. we got to lava world then me and my brother had to go. My brother and I pleaded our father to buy it too. We ended up convincing him, so we all three of us played it til wedding crash then my bro had to go. and me and my father got to Full Moon, then I had to go to my mom's. the next weekend I went to my dad's I convinced my little sister (5 at the time) To play castle crashers. And since then me and her played it soooooo much. then came when my brother got back into it, me and him were fire and ice like before, but im lvl 58 and hes lvl 61 we both played to the final boss, turned out we were overleveled and it was too easy so we went to insane mode to die to the barbarian boss multiple times. He gave up on it, so I continued to play it alot with my sister. she now has lvl 70 posion knight and rn on the xbox cc im 98 ice knight. 3 Years later I got steam, and played it alot. And when I figured out Castle Crashers was on steam I freaked out. I've played it alot ever since, and still play it. This is my favorite childhood game 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000/10 I need friends to play this with that have skype please. XD :3

This game was A LOT of fun. But sadly when trying to catch a multiplayer session online, there doesn't seem to be too many people playing. It's a great game for a local get together party if you wanna have some fun with a group. Solo it's fun, but it's just not as amusing. I'd give it an 8/10

Game is great fun with a group of friends. Cartoony, casual, and somewhat challenging at times, Castle Crashers is a good purchase for its price. Recommended
