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.

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.

I love this game to bits, Sadly I have to dislike it beacause after my 40 hours of playing and on the last boss of insane mode, I ACCIDENTALY CLICKED DELETE SAVE GAME DATA. I would easily be able to fix it, but castle crashers automatically didnt sync with the steam cloud.

It's pretty good, but two things ruin it for me...

- Can't play as and level up multiple characters without having to start over with them. What's so hard about letting us choose another character so we can level them up in the same save game?

-One life, no checkpoints (when playing alone). Having to start over from the very beginning of a level because you died once at the boss fight in the end is not challenging, it's tedious. I get this is meant to be played with friends since palyers can revive eachother, but I can't think of a beat em' up back in the 80's-90's that almost REQUIREs you to have more players!

A great and funny game, Castle Crashers is a great game to play. Seriously recommended. Even if you don't have friends online to play this game with, if you have a controller connected, you can do multiplayer on the same laptop/PC!

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.

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.

Castle Crashers was the game back then! It came out long ago, so I'll defend it, by mentioning the fact that the tools used now to create video games, compared to "long ago", are just plain better.

That aside, that doesn't make CC any worse. CC is a great game. It had a great combat system, unique character magic, characters and weapons. The weapons are mainly cosmetics that change your stats. Aside from these facts, certain character magic abilities, such as the arrow storm, are used across a few of them. The boss fights are great to.

Insane mode exists to. I use the keyboard controls, they aren't bad, it's just people don't want to get used to it. Sure, I can "Tornado juggle", "Sand juggle", combine it, if thats the only way people will believe me, "spellweave", etc. But let's be honest here. By joining random games, people never get the "hint" to start a lvl 1 character, or play a character near your level. You won't progress if you don't play the exact mission your on, and theres no indicator for that in online play. You could, however, fight over what stage to pick.

That aside, a fair rating for this game, considering its release date and the like,

10/10.

There are "NEW" games out there, in reality, most are just built on the same system of the previous. Those new games are what I call complete crap. They're all the same. At least, only a few aren't. And don't forget the RNG these days.
