Four years. That's how long it has taken The Behemoth to bring the world BattleBlock Theater. Since revealed in 2009 fans of Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid have waited ever-so long for the developers to bring their next foray to consoles. Hell, it was even shown off at PAX East the last few years, as if it was close to being released to the masses. So now that BattleBlock Theater has finally been put out does it merit the wait, or is it a dish of doo-doo casserole with a side of butt salad?
Our story begins with many friends on a ship, known as the Friend-ship. The most beloved of all friends is Hatty Hattington, a great man who loves hugs as much as pirates love candy. One day a massive storm sends the ship crashing onto an island of cats, where the felines take Hatty and make him their leader via a magical cursed hat. Now you (and possibly a couple friends) are forced to perform for the cat audience in levels that would make Marc Summers flip his lid.
