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.
  • Adorable animal orbs are your companions. Each adds different abilities to aid you on your journey.
  • Arena mode: Battle other players in free-for-all or team matches!
  • Insane Mode: Test your skills in the ultimate campaign challenge
  • Necromantic Pack (includes Necromancer and Cult Minion characters)
  • King Pack (includes The King and Open-Faced Gray Knight)
  • Also includes: Alien Hominid playable character

Ultra Graphics:

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!

Game: A must-have co-op Beat 'em up. It is rather "Meh" in solo but it becomes awesome when playing with someone.
Couch co-op FTW!

Technical / optimisation problems: None, can run on a toaster.

Really fun Beat em Up game. With slight RPG elements the mechanics of the game is really fun, a lot of replay value to max lvl all the characters and to get new characters. Goofy but can be taken seriously the story is pretty good(Its a behemoth game what do you expect). Really fun game to play with freinds and such.

A fun experience from the creators of Alien Hominid and those who later made Battleblock Theatre, and the upcoming Pit People. This is a great beat 'em up, with minigame updates coming as of recently, showing there is care for this game to this day, and the multiplayer experience is fun, although you are likely to come into contact with some who may have cheated for their levels.

Very fun game for couples or friends to enjoy. Or if you are a loser like me, you can play through the whole story by yourself.

Pros:
+Cute Graphics
+Great BGM
+Very fun PVE and PVP experience
+Good story
+Numerous Items and Pets, many ways to customize

Cons:
-Low replay value
-Some what high price for a indie game
-Lag issues in online multiplayer

Do i recommend this game? Certainly.
