Castle Crashers on PS3 360

Castle Crashers Screen Shots

Castle Crashers is a Fighting game available on the PS3 360. It can be played in Cooperative Sharedscreen modes.

Castle Crashers is a Fighting game. Fighting games revolve around the interaction of two or more characters in some form of physical combat. Players learn to control characters through either memorisation of button combinations to access more advance moves, or by their reactions and accurate timing.

Castle Crashers can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.

Castle Crashers can be played in a Sharedscreen mode. Shared Screen Multiplayer games create a multiplayer experience where players all share the same screen space. Rather than splitting the screen into portions for each player the game scales to fit each player in view even when they are a long way apart. Football and fighting games often take this approach as the shared view doesn't impede the players ability to take part in the action.

Novel Gamer review Mon, 09 May 2011

A recently discovered epic poem tells the story of four knights and their desperate quest to find entertainment. Based on Castle Crashers for Playstation 3 available through PSN.

So let's take stock. Police station? Check. Fire station? Check. Train station? Check. Er... Space station?

Tech Gamer review Sun, 03 Apr 2011

Castle Crashers offers a quirky and stylish action romp for up to four players but lacked substance without genuinely engaging content.

I anticipate that a lot of people will like Castle Crashers. I didn't.

Teen Gamer review Tue, 21 Dec 2010

Castle Crashers is a rolling maul of a game that oozes charm and style. But if you want to get the most out of it you need three friends to join you in front of your TV.

Castle Crashers is the second game from indie developer The Behemoth, who previously created Alien Hominid HD. Like Alien Hominid HD, Castle Crashers is a side-scrolling hack and slash that takes its cues from 16-bit classics like Golden Axe and Streets of Rage. You play a Knight who needs to rescue the princess and stop the bad guy (ed: revolutionary stuff). The narrative is paper-thin, but chances are you won't be playing for the story.

Multiplayer Gamer review Mon, 08 Feb 2010

Castle Crashers on Xbox live is a treat to play. Simple direct and great fun. With my usual multiplayer specs on I also found other players that treated me well, and a game with loads of collaborative angles. This was only slightly tarnished by getting unexpectedly kicked to the lobby by the game a few times.

If there's one place you can go for some simple multiplayer games, it's Xbox Live's Arcade Market. Castle Crashers, though it does have a single player mode, is made for playing with others.

Family Gamer review Sun, 14 Sep 2008

Castle Crashers is the second major game from The Behemoth, who have built a successful business not only around the games they sell but also by leveraging clothing and soft furnishing merchandise.

Their first game, Alien Hominid, was praised for its fresh imaginative approach to platform gaming. There has been much expectation that Castle Crashers would do the same for side scrolling brawler games.
