TIGdb: Entry for Castle Crashers

  • Beat

    In before ;ripoff

  • pnutz

    I can’t wait for the PC version.

  • Zulgaines

    I. Love. This. Game.

    Got it this morning, worth every penny.

  • Trotim

    The demo is pretty short, huh?

  • Guesst

    If you go into their website it’s kinda messed up right now. is missing. is broken. Kinda funny timing for that.

    I was trying to find out when and if they planned on making a PC release.

  • Fishy Boy

    Ignore the demo, buy the game. It’s excellent. You will not regret.

    I always wanted the beat ’em up genre to be revitalized. This game not only revives it, but gives it cyborg limbs and a jetpack. The gameplay is great, art is gorgeous, and I love the music. This is on singleplayer. I haven’t tried co-op, but I imagine it’s even better.

  • colorFool

    Whoa, when games like these are released I wish I had a XBox… oh well, I shall wait for the PC version then if it will be ported.
    Still I really dig the animations and graphics overall. I’d be interested how it plays.

    Concerning their website: nothing new that websited of popular indy devers are crunched by traffic on release dates, eh? ;)

  • SirNoodles

    I’m Level 13, and I have one thing to say.


    Get it. NOW!

  • AClarkFS

    No 360 no love.

  • Krux

    I wanna play it, but i have no X-Box. When will the PC version be released?

  • jkd

    This game is pure awesome.

  • Paroxysm

    I grabbed it last night and played for a few hours. Truly fantastic.

    Trotim: The demo isn’t particularly short in comparison to other demos (especially the recent BC:Rearmed Demo. That thing took 2 minutes to complete) and it keeps all your character experience for WHEN you buy the full game. Which you will do because it only gets better. Can’t wait to play some co op.

  • Hmmm…

    Okay, beware before buying this game!!! As I was playing through the first level my socks were knocked right off my feet!

    Do not play or buy this game if you value your clothing!

    _I always wanted the beat ‘em up genre to be revitalized. This game not only revives it, but gives it cyborg limbs and a jetpack._

    that’s pure awesomespeak right there.

  • moogled

    will there really be a pc version? if not i`m gonna have to get a 360 …

  • Guy Smiley

    How does this compare to Little Fighter 2?

  • Moose

    Did find an interesting bug. The end boss of stage 2 can spawn new bad guys, and after he spawned lots of them, they all went for me at once. The result was that I was beaten to death and then the game froze because the guys were too busy pounding on my corpse for it to fall to the floor and complete the end game sequence. ;)

  • Exoduster

    They should just call this Getting Hit with Arrows: The Game. But dear God do I love it.

  • Troy RULES

    Just beat it with my brother. Holy shit is it awesome, too. Best Beat ‘Em Up since Turtles in Time and best 4-player on one console in years. Also this is best with multiple people since it properly knows when you need to cooperate, and when you need to compete.

  • permanent

    I can no longer ignore Xbox Live Arcade. In recent weeks I bought
    Geometry Wars 2
    Bionic Commando
    Castle Crashers
    Kind of puts a damper on the REAL indie games.

  • Max

    I’ve got blisters on me fingers!

  • Dusty Spur

    Just beat it with a couple of dudes online. Man, I go to all the trouble of kicking their asses, and I get THAT for an ending? What a gyp…

    It’s a pretty ace game.

  • EarMeNow

    If you want to buy up any pets or weapons at the end, do it before you start insane mode because it locks the map back up…
    Will probably play through different characters with friends, but harder enemies and potential achievements isn’t enough to make me play through the same thing over. Worth every penny though.
