BattleBlock Theater Steam now supports Mac OS



We already knew that the apple was going to fall into your laps at some point (or on your head if you’re Isaac Newton) and now it has landed…

Huh? Alright, that one was a bit of a stretch but all that matters now is that BattleBlock Theater Steam is now available for Mac OS X 10.7 and above! Apple consumers, rejoice!

If you already had BattleBlock Theater Steam then you should be able to open up your account on a Mac computer and install our game. If you don’t own it yet, then today may be the perfect day to get it!

BattleBlock Theater Steam is part of the Monster Summer Sale. It’s currently also part of a Flash Sale that runs until 10AM PDT on 6/19/2015 that puts it at 90% OFF the original price! This is some serious news and we hope you understand the gravity of it.

No? Too far? Forget it…

STEAM… VERSION!

About This Game

Shipwrecked. Captured. Betrayed. Forced to perform for an audience of cats? Yes, all that and more when you unlock BattleBlock Theater!

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.

A fun little 2D platformer game where your goal is to farm as many gems as you can while dodging the many obstacles and enemies on your way to the exit of the level
The story is that you get betrayed by your best friend and evil cats force you to do lots of dangerous and unpredictable parkour while you save your fellow friends from the prison with the gems you got
Overall challenging and creative level designs tho it gets kinda repetitive later on
You can also make your own maps and share them with others through the Steam Workshop although theres a lack of people in the Steam Worskhop for this game
I recommend a controller if you want to buy this game
PROS:
Cool Cartoony visuals
Solid Gameplay
Awesome and Catchy Soundtrack
Lots of diffrent Obstacles and Enemies
Multiplayer mode for your friends and family
Theres a lot of character and weapon customizations you can unlock
Bonus timed levels where you have to finishe the stage under a certain amount of time
Insane mode (for the hardcore people) where the only diffrence is if you die you have to repeat the whole level from start :)
The Narrator's storytelling and humor 11/10
CONS:
It gets repetitive quickly
Annoying Enemies
I once played insane mode and i threw my controller

This game is, to put it simple: Hilarious.

The story is told by Stamper, if anyone knows him, a guy with a great narrator voice as shown in the game. During the game he will pretty much tell you what is going on and what you shouldn't do: Dieing mostly.
In cutscenes he will progress the story and tell you all kinds of things in a fun fashion.

The gameplay is nothing that spectaculair but still really good. It's a puzzle platformer as much as it can be a platformer. In 2D, you will run, jump, ride and slide across blocks of various elements, collecting gems to open the exit. The difficulty progression is steady and with the amount of levels, the final ones will/can be really frustrating but certainly do-able.

The music is happy and upbeat as the game itself and with the great visual style, jokes and voice-acting, I believe this is certainly a game looking into.
Additionally, it has multiplayer, so you can even go nuts with your friends in existing or self-made levels!

This game is so fabulous!

I finished it after +50 hs and made me so happy when finally I rescued Hatty from the hands of the cats cute cats

- Pros:

• A lot of funny moments, playing and watching the cutscenes.

• Prisoners to unlock, and weapons too.

• Workshop = More content.

• Differents game modes and multiplayer.

• Insane mode, makes the game more hard, that means you will have to think before do something, otherwise you will have to start all again.

• Catchy soundtrack, really catchy.

• Best Steam trailer ever created:

A game!?
Mario?! NO IT'S NOT!
It's a game with a hilarious intro (not to mention the language used!).
It's a game where you get to be creative, by making your own maps and not to forget share them so others can play them too!

You get to fight, jump, fly aaaand kill cats!
All your favorite combinations in a super funny, totally awesome, somehow Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious game!

But is it worth the money?
Oh well. YES it is. So go ahead and throw ALL your money away -and while you're throwing them somewhere, why not throw them on THIS game!?
