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.

I Have played the game on Xbox 360 for countless hours, and could not reccomend it enough. if you are wondering whether to buy or not, even if you're not into these types of games, Just GET IT. So irecently picked up the steam version and it is Just as perfect as the 360 version, if not better!

Welcome to BattleBlock Theater! An exciting theater where everything is run by cats and nothing could go wrong! That's what Furbottom, the theater's owner, said before he died in an horribly hilarious accident. The hat of Furbottom is the only thing left to remember him... but then the hat starts to glow. The cats look for a new owner, and they quickly find one! They put the hat on him, but then he starts the change. His eyes start to water and his hat glows more brightly in a vicious red color. He starts to float, and he turns into a total bummer. Sadly, he died too. This repeated over and over again. The cats found an owner, the owner did weird things, then he either died or somehow managed to escape. This had gone on for days, and then the days turned into months, and the months turned into years. When would the cats find a permanent owner?

Shortly after their latest owner's death, a man by the name of Hatty Hattington was with his friends on their ship. They crashlanded on an island, which unfortunately for them was the island that BattleBlock Theater had been sitting on all those years. When all the friends woke up, they realized Hatty had been stolen! They rushed inside the theater to search for him. They hear noises and see strange figures that keep running away. Then, suddenly, the see Hatty being held down by two cats! The cats put the magic hat on him, and his eyes begin to water and he begins to float. The cats then attack all of Hatty's friends, and they have no weapons to defend themselves!

After a long while, they all wake up from the battle. They're all seperated and one cat walks up to a cage. The cat unlocks the cage and pulls the prisoner out. The prisoner is pushed into a room with tons of spikes, sawblades, and other cliche death items! Now, all the prisoner can do is preform in this big death trap in order to escape the theater!

YOU are that prisoner! You must battle your way through all those countless, seemingly impossible death traps, arena matches, and hilarious cutscenes to rescue Hatty, save all your other friends, and get the heck out of there! So buckle your pants because you're about to experience the ride of a lifetime! Woooooo-hoooooooo!!!

This game insults me with me losing my best friend I don't know anything about (or if he can move for that matter) is being kidnapped by cats, yes, I said it, cats.

Having no idea how he is doing, I go on a journey of finding Hatty Hattington, by journey, I mean entertaining cats while collecting gems and buying prisoners, and by saving Hatty, I mean it.

Collect gems, Create Levels, Buckl... e... I mean... Cats... I was about to say that... Cats...

Anyway, have fun playing, I sure didn't.

It's got lots of fun and cats, see? BattleBlock Theater is best enjoyed with a friend, as the antics and mischief that ensue are not easily forgotten. Strap in for hours of puzzling, problem-solving, friend-punching, cat-wrangling, and more.

I have mixed feelings about that narrator. On one hand he is funny sometimes, but on the other he mocks me a lot. LOL. But seriously, this game is a great platforming challenge and is a joy to record! I LOVE RIPPING MY HAIR OUT! IM NOT MAD!!!!!!!!! >:O

I loved this game, was really fun, both single and multiplayer modes. The online mode is fun, but it's hard to find people to play with, and you rarely get more than 1 round in before somebody quits and you have to wait longer. But that's not the fault of Behemoth. I definately recommend this game.

This game is stupidly good, stupidly funny, stupidly clever, and stupidly stupid.

I haven't laughed so hard in a game in probably my life!

The narrator is just hilarious, and between that and making mistakes and killing urself and/or a buddy (you should really play this with a buddy!) you will be in tears :D)

Provides a good challenge, especially if you seek to perfectly clear things, and tons of content.

Finally ended this game, I can write a review now.
This game is pure genious. From the dark humour to the gameplay.
It's pretty hard at some moments but easy at others, just try to pause cause it's not the kind of game that you can play for 5 hours without stop but it's a good game !

This game was very fun. There were many different short battle modes. The game also had an average length storyline. The story wasn't very serious, it was humourous because this game is supposed to be funny. This was a unique platformer and I would recommend it!!! It also has online co-op and battles.
