Crashing the Castle of my Mind
Castle Crashers is a game for the Ps3 console. The game is considered a Beat em' up and is really enjoyable. When you first start the game you get to choose between 4 different characters. The blue character controls ice, the orange one is a fire-expert, the green one is poisonous and the red one is the master of electricity. Each character has some positive features but some (the orange and red) tend to be a bit more powerful when it comes to their magic. Basically, throughout the game you're travelling around the map and playing through each level. Some of these levels also let you rescue the kidnapped princess. You can play with up to 3 other people but you all have to be different characters. As you continue on through the game you manage to find pets (which give you certain 'power-ups') and you unlock different characters. You may also manage to find different weapons which can either give you bonus defence, agility, magic or strength (however, they may also decrease either of these categories.) While defeating monsters you level-up, after each level you get to use a skill point and put them in one of the four categorize as well. This gives you the freedom of going down whichever path you want to; the warrior (strength), magician (magic), tank (defence) etc. After you go around the map once you unlock insane mode which is basically a more challenging play-through. The monsters are quite a bit harder and I recommend playing with at least one other person. My experience with this game is that it is really fast-paced and sometimes difficult. While the regular mode may not pose many difficulties I had quite a few difficulties with insane mode and had to get my friends to help me out. The game also has two different aspects to it which are the Arena and the Volleyball matches. If you go online you can either face an opposing player in volleyball or in the arena. The arena has a few different game-types (catch the chicken to 'beef-up' etc.) Overall, I recommend this game to anyone that liked other games such as TMNT, Scott Pilgrim etc. The game is appropriate for all age groups and it would be a wonderful game to play at a group game night.
