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!

A puzzle game like Portal 2 but this one is more based on the environment of the stage.

The good:

Fun, when we can play.

The bad:

I only play co-op, and we occasionally get stuck and have to "commit suicide" and respawn elsewhere to continue.

Narration was probably the worst part about it - had to mute him ten minutes in.

Unskippable, obnoxious story scenes. Even when narrator is muted, he talks through these long scenes.

Grab your friend and sit the f*ck down this game has some server issues but it is fun to play. Basically you and your home boy are stranded on a island with a f*uckton of cats which want to kill you so it is based on rl. You play as "actors" who have to parkour all kind of sh*t maps which can take 2 hours per level when you suck at it like me but the story is fun and the levels are unique and colorful with a se*y backround music .Only buy it when your friend has it too otherwise you can not play story mode

I think you should buy this even if you're a loser that doesn't like platformers.
