Castle Crashers, for those of you who don’t know, is one of those downloadable titles you see on the Xbox 360 Arcade. Floating amidst a great ocean of cheap puzzle games, off cuts from a publishers floor with a brand name stapled to it, and badly rehashed retro games that have been shoehorned into the Xbox system to make a quick buck or two by riding on misplaced nostalgia there are a few exceptional titles. Rez HD, Geometry Wars and, well, Worms, to name but a few personal favorites.
Castle Crashers has been gladly accepted into this roster, as a highly stylized original title by the same artistic team that created Alien Hominid.
Castle Crashers makes a daring attempt to be one of the best side scrolling beat-em-ups of the past decade, if not sitting on the top of the memory pile, with an awesome intromatic that dispenses with any need for such trivialities like plot, character development or SOMETHING ELSE. Yeah this is unfinished! What are you gonna do about it?
