Battle Block Theater is a game by Behemoth, the game brings a new level of challenge to all players who have been looking for something new. The platform game is available on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 arcade and available for pc through steam.
Graphically this game is a flashback of flash style games. Gameplay is very quirky and fun to play through costing a mere $14.99 it is worth the investment and you can buy a second copy for just $10.00 more.
The fact that the game is challenging is what the developers were looking for and upon completion of the game you should feel proud and achieved as there are many challenges to surpass on each new level that are harder than the previous challenge.
Currently with over 450 levels to play through this game offers hours of fun, as well as the ability to play online with teams of friends which adds even more time to be taken up by this addicting title.
In conclusion Battleblock Theater is a great game to have some good fun with and it allows you to have fun while gaming again, which a lot of titles have not been able to really offer lately.
