Castle Crashers is a sidescrolling Beat’em Up videogame developed and published by Behemot Games, creators of the popular Alien Hominid. The game is available for Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network and Windows PC via Steam. Castle Crashers puts you in the shoes of a knight of the king that will have to rescue the three princesses from evil forces.
The gameplay mechanics are pretty similar to the ones seen in other mythic Beat’em Up games like Double Dragon or Streets of Rage. You have to fight your way through 2D scenarios as you defeat waves of enemies using your skills and powers. The game can be played solo or cooperative with a friend, either online or locally.
You have to fight your way through 2D scenarios as you defeat waves of enemies
Castle Crashers features four characters to choose from: the Red Knight, the Blue Knight, the Green Knight and the Orange Knight. Each one of them has their own powers and abilities. For instance, the Green Knight unleashes a poisoned cloud that damages enemies over time. The game features loads of different characters that will become available once you have completed the game with a specific character.
One of the best things about Castle Crashers is the wide range of weapons available to collect. Each weapon improves certain stats such as Strength, which enable you to hit harder, Magic, which improves the damage of your spells and increases your mana pool, Defense, which increases your maximum health and Agility, which makes you walk faster and increases your arrow fire ratio and range. Many weapons have a chance to be dropped by enemies, but others remain hidden within the scenario, so you will have to go look carefully to find them all.
Castle Crashers also features “Animal Orbs” . These are cute, round-shaped pets that accompany your knight, providing it with additional abilities. Some pets can be easily found, but there are some of them that are especially hard to find. Once you rescue a pet, it will be waiting for you in the Animal Ark. You are free to replace your current animal with another one, but bear in mind that you can only have one animal companion, so choose wisely.

Grab a sword and slash your way through hordes of enemies to save the princesses

Castle Crashers is a 2D Beat’em Up videogame that imitates arcade classics like Streets of Rage, this time you play the role of up to four knights that have to save four princesses to restore the peace in the kingdom. Each knight has its own power related to its color (except for the red knight, I don’t know that they were thinking); the blue knight controls ice, the red one casts lightning strikes, the green knight can set poison clouds and the orange one hurls deadly fireballs.
The gameplay is fast paced and full of enemies onscreen, which requires you to pay attention; it’s fairly common to lose sight of your character in the middle of a brawl and suddenly realize that you are being destroyed. To help you in your quest, the knights can equip powerful weapons that modify their stats and add elemental effects to their attacks. There are also pets that grant small perks to your knight, but they are hidden within the scenarios.
- Fast paced action with up to three friends and loads of enemies to take down
- High replay value with unlockable characters and new powers
- The story mode isn’t too long

Castle Crashers is a very good game, it's like a cartoon but don't judge a book by its cover, even its like a cartoon it's very fun to play specially with friends. You can can play this with your friends with a maximum of 4 players. The game has a story mode and what you gonna do is fight some mobs and killing some bosses, you can find some items like bows that will help you kill the mobs and you can actually level up by killing mobs to get xp, every level that gain you can get a point that can be spent on upgrading your character. You can upgrade your strength, your magic, your agility, and your defense. There are also 4 characters to choose from, every character have their different magic or ability like the red one, he summon lightning to hit the enemies. The game is kinda hard if you don't have a controller, the controls are complicated for the keyboard but if you have a controller, you can play this game a lot more easier and better, so I recommend using a controller but even though you don't have a controller, that doesn't mean that you can't play the game, you can still play this with your keyboard.
- Its very fun to play
- Its compatible with a controller
- Cute and cartoon like graphics
- You can play it with your friends
- Its kinda hard without a controller
