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!

  • 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.

An absolutely outstaning Co-Op experience from the Behemoth.

+Wonderful humour
+Easily the best narrator in gaming history
+Good art style
+Great character customisation
+Fun gamemodes outside of the story mode
+New heads added for special events/holidays

+/-Most levels are built for co-op and the workarounds for certain parts if in solo feel lacking
+/-Two difficulty levels, one being far harder than the normal mode

-Can get boring when playing alone
-When playing community levels you are forced to give them a rating afterwards (not really a bad thing but I find it irritating)
-If your friends enjoy ♥♥♥♥ing you off you are not gonna have a good time

Overall:
Solo Experience: 8.5, a solid game with great humour that you won't regret buying
Co-Op/Multiplayer Experience: 10, it's difficult to find a better co-op experience than this

Play & laugh, laugh and play. Exactly the kind of experience i expect from a game.

Average/nice challenge curve . Editor and periodic users content accessible directly from the in game menu for even more.

(xbox pad only, Other pads require a tier software :/.)

This game is great from what I'vr played so far. The game itself I bought a while back for retail and at that price it is entirely justified as it is a really fun game and even better when playing with a friend. The game consists of several platorms to jump with each level getting progressively harder. The game to some may seem a tad repetitive and those views are completed justified as each level just consists with you getting from point a to point b but each level gets mopre complex and fun and it also contains jewels and balls of yarn which are used for multiple things.

The jewels are used to buy new characters (I say new characters but it really is new faces for your character... still really good though :D) and the balls of yarn are used to buy new weapons. This collecting element makes the game more fun as you don't have to collect evey jewel or ball of yarn they are just in it to make your gaming experience more enjoyable.

The presentation is very close to that of castle crashers (Made by the same company) and it really fits what the game is going for.

The gameplay is very fun as it sees you jump between platforms using weapons and either chosing to help your friend or letting him fail while laughing maniacally. The controls are great very tight, however I'd highly recommend a controller as the keyboard can be used but is no where near as good as a controller (The keyboard does work very well by no means a bad port controller but the controller is better).

The sounds of this game from the music all the way to the narrator were superb. The music was grat to listen to while playing the game and didn't get boring. The narrator has a hillarious voice and very funny lines, he is on youtube and has voiced a few animations online; also his name is stamper.

My verdict of this game is that it is a very fun game to play with a friend however they didn't implement a feature that allows you to play with 3 friends during the main story which imo this game could have really benefited from. That was my only gripe with this game as everything else about it was fantastic. I'd give this game a 9.5/10 for very fun gameplay and funny moments while also being a very reasonable price of £10.99 (as of november 2014). It gets taken down a bit though for only having the ability of 2 player story when they could have easly made 4 player.

The Behemoth has truly outdone itself with this awesome puzzle/platformer. You're shipwrecked on an island inhabited by cats who are forcing you to 'act' your way through life-threatening stages for their entertainment. Along the way, you can set your friends free with the in-game currency, gems, as well buy cool new weapons by bribing the guards with yarn. All of this is accompanied by humourous commentary which has been specifically designed to leave you in stitches. All of this can be done with a friend, either local or online. Or if you want to be a bit more competitive, you can try out Arena mode which allows you to compete with up to three other people in ridiculous challenges such as capturing horses or collecting gold. This game even covers the community connoisseurs with a cornucopia of community-made challenges on the Steam Workshop. Overall, this game is worth it for the comedy and even more worth it for the gameplay.
