About This Game

Shipwrecked. Captured. Betrayed. Forced to perform for an audience of cats? Yes, all that and more when you unlock BattleBlock Theater! There’s no turning back once you've started on your quest to free over 300 of your imprisoned friends from evil technological cats. Immerse yourself in this mind bending tale of treachery as you use your arsenal of weapon-tools to battle your way through hundreds of levels in order to discover the puzzling truth behind BattleBlock Theater.

If solo acts aren't your style, go online or bring a buddy couch-side to play a thoroughly co-optimized quest or enter the arenas. The game also includes a level editor so you can craft your own mind bending trials!

Key Features


  • CO-OPTIONAL GAMEPLAY - Work together... or not. Online Play! Couch Hi-Fives! Best Game Ever! Up to two players in Story, and four in Arena.

  • ARENAS: Whether you're king crowning or whale chasing, BattleBlock Theater performers have 8 arena modes to teach their enemies the real meaning of stage fright!

  • INSANE MODE: One life to live doesn’t just happen on screen, it can happen on stage as well. Test your skills in the ultimate campaign challenge.

  • UNIQUE ANIMATIONS: New art created for the Steam version of BattleBlock Theater! Cat guard makes its way to center stage.


  • OVER 450 LEVELS! - Single player, multiplayer, arena, we have more levels than Hatty can count on his finger hands.

  • 300 PRISONERS TO FREE! - Having been captured by the native feline population, it’s up to YOU to liberate them! Earn gems to free your friends by participating in deadly, gladiatorial plays.

  • THEATRICAL WEAPONRY AND COMBAT! - Jump, push, pull and punch your way to victory! If that doesn’t work you can explode, freeze, poison, or digest a baby! Plus, you’ll be able to bring up two weapons at a time in a game and swap quickly.

  • CREATE AND SHARE LEVELS - Create works of art in our Level Editor and then share them with all your friends (or strangers). Over 20 interactive block types galore!

BattleBlock Theater® in a Nutshell
.............................................................

- Push your friends to death
- Your friend trolls you and sits in a boat forever and you have to do the rest of the parkour.
- Your friend just passes not taking any gems or stuff.

So would I recommend this game?

I honestly can't recommend BattleBlock Theater enough. It's a stellar platformer with unique mechanics and its own brand of quirkiness that it pulls off really, really well. The voice acting and cutscenes are hilarious, and the platformer mechanics just work really, really well.

One thing I will say though, it plays much better with a controller.

Buckle your pants!

Pros:
Level editor.
Funny commentator.
Multiple game modes.
Game is even more fun with a friend!

Cons:
Not enough jokes.
Castle Crashers is better.
Co-op is superior compared to Single-player.

Overall Rating: 8/10

This game is super fun. Great opportunity for couch co-op. Two people are ideal, playing with any Moore than that can be a bit hectic. Loads of fun, great story & super voice acting

Good lord this game's a riot. I played through most of the story with a friend and we had a blast. The basic idea is you've been imprisoned and are forced to run through various obstacle courses, picking up gems and golden balls of string along the way (for unlockable heads and weapons, respectively). The story is well written and narrated incredibly well too. Singleplayer may be solid but co-op offers a world of possibilities to screw with your partner. Do yourself a favor and buy this with a friend.
