Castle Crashers is 2D beat-em-up game with role-playing elements developed by Behemoth. It was initially released in 2008 via Xbox Live Arcade with following ports for PS3, Windows, and macOS. In 2015 it was remastered as Castle Crashers Remastered and was released for Xbox One.
You play as a knight sent by the king to defeat an evil wizard who stole the king’s daughters and captured and mystical gem. The gameplay is very reminiscent of older side-scrolling beat-em-up titles. It can be summarized as a player has to defeat waves of enemies in different locations using his weapons and magical abilities. However, it also incorporates some role-playing elements such as acquiring gaining new levels which allow a player to enhance his stats and acquire new moves. One of the gameplay’s focal points is cooperative multiplayer with the support for up to 4 players which is available both locally and online.
The game shares significant Behemoth hand-drawn visual style which was used before in Alien Hominid and would be later used in studio’s BattleBlock Theater and Pit People.

Castle Crashers reviews and comments

Translated by

Very good game, especially in multiplayer. Maneuverability is simple but effective. It takes several hours to complete the campaign, then it can be redone in insane mode (= hard mode). Replayability is very present because you can improve each character (there are 28 out of DLC) until you have its statistics to the maximum. During the different levels, you can recover many weapons and lots of animals, both of which allow us to increase our statistics or to benefit from other advantages. These are also sometimes difficult to find. The humor is very present and the music is really nice (even excellent for some) and stick well with the universe. To summarize, Castle Crashers is a good success that you need to at least test!

Product received for free a super little adventure games! This game is the image of the behemoth, completely crazy and WTF! I loved making the campaign of this games full of Easter eggs. Several game modes are available: the story mode, very nice and long to have time to have fun alone or with your friends. And a small well thought out mini games that will relax you between two Tryhard sessions in the countryside. ^^ I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a small game playable to several without a head and to the followers of the good big WTF as we like! (perfect for example as an extra game to play a more serious game). Attention! : This games required a sense of humor sometimes completely ridiculous see a can salacious! Thank you kindly to put your critical sense before launching the games. Thanks again to the good comrade who offered me this quality product, kisses!

Castle Crashers is a 2D side scrolling Beat-up ' Em-up with great Carnage and lots of Fun. Here you fight your way through ultimate Masses of different Enemies and may laugh your way through the Grimaces of these to Death. In this Beat-up, there are from a wide variety of little Mobs to epically funny Boss fights, about deer with Spray ice on Which you can ride. Positive Combat System (Spells/Combos) Humor Story Level System Co-op Local Co-op Mode 4 Player Minigames Boss Bamps Pets Soundtrack Controller Support Weapons Negative Keyboard Control Need For Use Sometimes You get stuck in certain Areas hanging Ic h personally spent many Hours with Castle Crashers and, just like I rented an Xbox from a Friend back then, I was still rallying me to play this Game. Later, when my Brother and I then had a PS3, Castle Crashers was played There for hours. Castle Crashers is suitable as a very good couch Co-game and you will always be able To spend time with it. That'S why I bought Castle Crashers again for Steam. It's a great Game with great Humor and Soundtrack and I can definitely recommend this Purchase!
