It would be hard to explain properly what Battleblock Theater is about. To put it simply: this game is pure, hilarious fun. A comedy platformer that puts the laughs and the thrills on the same level, Battleblock Theater manages to be entertaining on every level, especially when you play the game in its spectacular multiplayer mode.
Developed by the jokesters at The Behemoth, this is a title that never takes itself too seriously, and it’s all the better for it. Jokes aside, the game is surprisingly outstanding as a platformer, mostly thanks to its clear visuals and excellent level design.
Don’t let the simple visuals of Battleblock Theater deceive you: it’s all part of The Behemoth’s plan. The reason why it seems like the game was made in some painting program is that it is a love letter to the golden era of Newgrounds flash games. The developers of the game are the same ones responsible for such epic indie titles as Alien Hominid and Castle crashers, which should give you an idea of what to expect from this game, comedy-wise.
Much of the game is narrated by Stamper, who is a popular member of the Newgrounds community. Every phrase uttered by the narrator is pure comedic gold, which makes the game feel even better. At its core, Battleblock Theater feels like a more comedic Little Big Planet – if that’s even possible.
The simple visuals also help a huge deal with performance, which is a must, because the levels in this game are entirely customizable. Using simple graphics is the perfect way to guarantee that the game runs well on any PC, no matter how complex the levels get. This is especially useful when you play multiplayer with a friend – which, in all honesty, increases the enjoyment you’ll get out of this game considerably.
Design and Destroy
Levels in Battleblock Theater can be entirely customized to make the most fun platforming experience – or the most devious and frustrating levels to annoy your friends. The degree of freedom you get to customize your levels here is commendable, allowing you to personalize pretty much every aspect of any given level.
From materials to traps and everything in between, levels in Battleblock Theater are as good as your imagination allows you. This is made even better by the fact that you can play each level in a variety of interesting multiplayer modes.
Not only will you be jumping from platform to platform: some levels require you to beat your opponents in zany fights, or race to the finish against all other players. Variety is the keyword in Battleblock Theater, and that might be one of the reasons why we consider that this game is simply endless in the terms of gameplay variety that it offers.
Also worth mentioning is that the game comes with over 450 premade levels, which is great for players that just want to jump into the fun of Battleblock Theater without the need for hours of customization.
Battleblock Theater is one of the funniest platformers ever made, and the creative options only help in making the game even better.
