BattleBlock Theater is a platform game developed by The Behemoth.

The player was aboard the S.S. Friendship when the ship encounters a heavy storm that causes the ship to crash into a strange island. After the player awakens, no ship's crew members seem to be around. Moreover, it is revealed that the crew is held prisoner by cats that force the crew members to act out deadly performances in the cats' theater. The player has to pass all the levels in order to save Hatty Hattington, the best friend to one and all.

There are two game modes featured in BattleBlock Theater: Adventure Mode and the Arena. Adventure Mode resembles the game's campaign, which can be played alone or in co-op. There are multiple chapters in this mode that consist of several levels. In order to unlock the next chapter, the player has to get a certain amount of gems and pass the "Boss Level" which is a usual level but with a time limit. Players have the ability to collect balls of yarn in order to buy new equipment from cat guards.

Arena Mode is a competitive game mode for 2 to 4 players. Players take part in various mini-games to score the most points for their team and win the round.

      BattleBlock Theater reviews and comments

      Translated by
      Microsoft from Deutsch
      "What the Hell ..?" Were my first Thoughts when the Intro of the Game took off. -But more on That later. Battleblock Theater is a 2D Jump & Run and comes from the same developer studio as the Game "Castle Crashers" and you can see that at every Turn: The somewhat strange Humor, the drawing style and the Affinity to choose crazy Cats as evil Adversaries (.. Now seriously, is this a Phobia?), are just some of the Points that reflect the Charm of both Games. Damn again, even the Main Menu cries out for: "HEY! Here!! THIS SPIEL IS OF US!! THE BEHEMOTH!! SCHAU DOCH MAL!!. " So The Graphic Style is cartoonish, colourful and deliberately greatly exaggerated on many Corners, while other Things convince with pure Simplicity. The Drawings are funny and beautiful to look at. The Characters, for example, are little more than a monochrome chibi body. The Head of the Body, however, is full of Humour and Creativity, in the simplest way possible-and there is a MENGE of them (!), so that you have a truly huge Selection of Frates with which to contest the Game. The Game principle is very simple: We control our Hero, whom we have previously equipped with appealing Fratt, Paint and two Weapons, in a 2D world and let him through a Course consisting of Platforms, Water, Clouds, laser beams, Life-weary cats and Dangerous Spines run and try to reach the Goal. Along the Way we find Gems and Ball balls of wool, with which we can either free other Inmates (this corresponds to the selectable Scratches, by the way ..) or use other Weapons in Defense against the evil Army of Cats. What did these Cats actually do to us? Well, that brings us to the Story of the Game, which is explained with the Intro: In Fact, we represent a play that seems to break a little to the Narrator and player of the Piece and Gets out of Hand. The Play is about Hatty Hattington and his Friends who set off on a Journey on a Ship (.. It's a Friend Ship .. Haha.. Do you understand?) -Here also the Storyteller, Will Stamper, Shows what he has on the Box. This Voice Actor is a God! -The Friends get into a cruel Storm, the Ship breaks apart, Friends fall from the Ship into the cold, deep black Sea-there was also such a Whale passing by. So WAAAAHHHHH .. And made the Whole thing incredibly terrifying-and I think there was a Shark there as well. The Ship ended up as a Wreck on a Prison Island, inhabited by the Prison Guards who, for whatever Reason, lock up innocents. And well .. Cats are. The Narrator of course accompanies you through the entire Piece. Um Game and makes it incredibly entertaining. The actual Gameplay, however, is also absolutely inviting you to Play-maybe it's even a bit too easy, because even the Difficulty "Error" can be played through well without getting any bigger Frustrations. I can recommend this Game to anyone who has already celebrated the Humour from Castle Crashers or just wants to have a relatively simple, lovingly designed Jump & Run for on the side. :)
