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.

  • 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.

FANTASTIC narrator, brilliant humor and writing, mediocre puzzle game. Many of the puzzles become way too tedious towards the end, especially the timed ones, and during the last level I got so bored I no longer wanted to finish it. The cutscenes are worth the asking price alone, so I still recommend this.

This game has a lot of charm if you play with someone, it gives a lot of fun and in a way it deepens the friendship .When you get a lot of friendly phrases, for example;
- Go in that hole, You can not go in the hole! ???
- I do not have to !
- Move over fu@#k!
- F$%%k me what it takes to be!
- Jump on me jump!
- What a fu#%ing thing licked me
- FU#$%^&*(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- don't punch me assh@#%^
but we are suck

As already mentioned game ideal for closer ties wonderful and I can not imagine playing alone

One of the most funniest and hilarious games I have ever played!

That's right, this game is hilarious. this game got it right on the humour side.
And no im not lying! me and my friend where laughing almost the whole time when we were playing this.

This game got this funky and really awesome graphics, the gameplay is easy and fun (I recommend using a controller)
To be honest its one of the best co-op games out there and in my opinion one of the funniest.
I strongly recommend this game for younger gamers mainly because its really easy to understand but also cus its fun!

Is this game worth buying? Hell yeah! it's so good!

Will you get bored of it fast? No! I still think its really fun.

1-10? Easily a 9 out of 10.

This is a unique game that no one should miss! go and buy it!

Love this game. Make sure you play with someone who is especially maniacal, as screwing over my friends is my favorite aspect of this game. Has the potential to ruin friendships, especially during competitive times such as golden hat time, where my "If I can't have it, no one can *throws hat in water*" mentaility rears its average looking head.

This game goes on sale quite often, but if you do not wish to wait, this game is definitely worth the $15.

Different people play this game different ways, and there's a lot of interpretations on the most effective way to enjoy. Play in the way that makes you giggle the most, while making certain your partner is not plotting to kill you irl for your shenanigans.
