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!

Only way worth playing this game is on the "hardcore" mode where if you die once you have to restart the level. Eaither way though its a bit repetitive and not quite difficult enough. The interesting thing about this game however is its co-op. So theres a lot of co-op mechanics added that make it new and different then other games that are very similar in this genre.

In BattleBlock Theater, players control a prisoner as they are forced to play through games devised by Hatty Hattington. Controls are simple, with the game largely consisting of running, jumping and punching. Levels are made up of various types of blocks, such as collapsing blocks, sticky walls, bouncy volcanic rocks and deadly spikes, and also feature hazards such as water and deadly creatures.

Sporting an interesting story, the game actually feels like a mix of Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog. You run around the Mario Bros. levels while collecting Green Chaos Emeralds. You can either play Story Mode or any various Online Multiplayer Modes.

When you collect enough gems, you can Free the Prisoners or “Unlock” different uhh…. Heads... for your character to wear. When you collect enough Balls of Yarn, you can Bribe one of the Security Guards for new weapons to help you win the game.

The game is fun, but, it feels just a tiny bit generic. Other than that, I think it’s worth anyone’s time. 9/10

BattleBlock Theater

Introduction
BattleBlock Theatre A comedic 2D platformer developed by The Behemoth (Castle Crashers, Alien Hominid) BBT Features 80+ levels each with its own twists and turns, not to mention a level editor and workshop support that is bound to keep you entertained for hours upon end. There is hardly a dull moment while playing BattleBlock Theatre its many different enemies and puzzles always make sure the player is focused and thinking. Also, keep an eye out for collectables (gems and yarn balls) once you have enough obtained you can redeem them for weapons and heads, which can be applied to your character to give a unique look, whether it’s an explosive frog that hunts down enemies or a five eyed “centipete”. Playing co-op in this game is guaranteed to be hilarious and fun, each level is remade just for co-op, adding ledges that requires your friend to throw you towards it, and of course throwing your friends to their deaths...

Gameplay
BattleBlock Theatre plays like most platformers, Jump, Double Jump, Wall slide, Attack. However, the movement system rarely feels repetitive, it also features full controller support. Moving around the stages feels responsive and fast. Its combat system is at times boring, you can kill enemies (Or in most cases friends) with simple punches, kicks or previously mentioned weapons. Combat will a lot of the time result in random button-mashing. You can compete with your friends in Behemoths take of Basketball, King of the hill, Golden whale, and many other modes. When there’s no friends around there is always online play, time trials and the glorious level editor. Tools in the level editor are robust, easy to use and definitely has a sense of achievement when you get your friends to try out your creations. The AI is at times quite dumb, and provide little challenge. Controls are simple and has the option to remap to your specific likes.

Graphics
BattleBlock Theatre’s graphics are great, It’s amazing that Dan Paladin was able to create a world in such detail with only a pencil (that’s right, all hand drawn graphics and animations). The game’s art style is cartoony and funny, BBT has smooth animations, everything looks nice and crisp. It seems like all the art was done on a small resolution and later upscaled so i would recommend playing windowed on 1280x720 which will also increase the frame rate, playing with V-sync on will also make the game look better in fullscreen mode.

Sound
BattleBlock Theater has an amazing soundtrack, possibly the best out of any game i have played. every song sounds funky and goes great with BBT’s art style, The narrator is hilarious and at times the backbone to my enjoyment, Much of the humour revolves around poops and farts, but to the immaturity in all of us, you’ll laugh. Throughout the whole game the developers are trying to make you laugh and they definitely achieve that. The games sounds are all unique and also go great with the art style.

Conclusion
BattleBlock Theater is definitely an amazing game, Its multiplayer is the stand out feature and if you play with friends it will be an amazing experience for sure. It is well worth the price ($14.99 USD) It also has Steam achievements and Trading cards for you to collect. BBT has a ton of replay value and getting A++ in every level will surely take you a long time, Overall it is one of the best platformers i have ever played and i highly recommend this if you enjoy platformers and endless fun, 9/10
