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.

BattleBlock Theater

There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said before, but if you're on the fence about buying this then let me be the one to push you over the edge to the side of "yes".

Things I personally enjoyed:
1. Platforming!!! (One of my personal favourite genre of games, but who doesn't like hopping about?)
2. Good level progression; the levels scale well from simple to tough to sadistic (though they're all fairly straightfoward).
3. Enjoyable storytelling (narrator, puppet shows, home-made sound effects :D).
4. This game runs on anything with a good framerate.
5. Very easy to pick up and play a few levels when taking "short" breaks from work/homework/etc.


All in all, lots of fun, and well worth the price.

I don't often bother writing these, but this game is the first platformer i've enjoyed since the early sonic games (i think i stopped at sonic 3), and in co-op mode this is probably the best platformer i've ever played.

The game has well written humerous dialog, and all the classic elements you'd expect (secret area's, ways to mess up and trap yourself/deny yourself some of the levels rewards) The difficulty level ramps up, but not so fast that you can't cope yet you also genuinly feel challenged as you go. Overall i think this is a game i'm going to finish and then go back and play through again.

I honestly can't recommend BattleBlock Theater enough. It's a stellar platformer with unique mechanics and its own brand of quirkiness that it pulls off really, really well. The voice acting and cutscenes are hilarious, and the platformer mechanics just work really, really well.

One thing I will say though, it plays much better with a controller.

And Stamper is in it. Anything with Stamper is a must-buy.

Good lord this game's a riot. I played through most of the story with a friend and we had a blast. The basic idea is you've been imprisoned and are forced to run through various obstacle courses, picking up gems and golden balls of string along the way (for unlockable heads and weapons, respectively). The story is well written and narrated incredibly well too. Singleplayer may be solid but co-op offers a world of possibilities to screw with your partner. Do yourself a favor and buy this with a friend.

+Responsive controls even with keyboard and mouse
+Various weapons that can be used to fight cats and/or add new possibilities for platforming
+Game is very difficult yet still fun in insane mode.
+The narration of the story is insanely good
+Multiple gamemodes where you compete against friends if the story wasnt enough for you
