Battleblock Theater


Xbox 360: April 3rd 2013 | Xbox One: June 15th 2015 | Steam: May 15th 2014


What is BattleBlock Theater about?

Basically you are on a boat with your best friends but then a bad storm happens which causes you to crash on an island that has nothing but an abandoned theater that has been taken over by cats sitting on it

Since the original owner died they switch who the new owner/showrunner is whenever the current one dies or leaves (which you cant do easily since they are usually locked up at the top of the gift shop) by using this possessed hat and your best friend Hatty Hattington is their next victim so now its up to you (and some friends if you play multiplayer) to get him back but sadly by the time you get to him he is in a vegetable state (most likely) to the hat


What is the game like?

The game features you, a prisoner and peformer, at the theater jumping and climbing on blocks, throwing weapons, punching enemies etc. to get gems and yarn and then getting to the exit afterwards

The boss levels have you going through 2 levels, the first one you go through a regular exit but in the second one you have to get to a key that lets you move on to the next chapter all while on a 2 minute time limit for each level so you have to be quick

You can buy heads and weapons at the gift shop (gems for heads and yarn for weapons) and you can make your own head by going into the game files

heads are what you use to customize your player you can get things like cats, the angry faic from newgrounds, dogs, donuts, mushrooms, dinosaurs etc. basically its a lot of random stuff

There are also cutscenes that play when you get to a new chapter in the game but you can skip them if you want by pressing a button or key (depends if you are using a controller or a keyboard)

There are 8 chapters in BBT with them progressively getting harder and harder as the game goes on
