Castle Crashers Review
Posted: 19 months ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
This sets up a tongue in cheek romp through side-scrolling levels for four players. The emphasis is on mashing buttons and battering enemies, but the visuals remain cartoony. As you progress you can find new weapons and upgrade your characters. Players work together but also race to pick up the most coins to get the best upgrades.
Castle Crashers Remastered was released for newer consoles with better visuals and smoother frame rates.

The demo is available on Switch.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 10+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. Simple slapstick fighting requires a relatively low skill level. Younger players not worried about the cartoon gore will enjoy the bravado and tongue in cheek Monty Python-style humour. Playing together with youngsters also makes this a good fit for lower skill levels.
