The Eye of the Cyclops


We’ve got a pair of eyes for you in this week’s Prisoner Update. Prisoners #10312 and #10329 give a perfect example of how BattleBlock Theater is meant to be played, and we’ll tell you why.

We selected this video to show the fans who have never experienced the demo at the tradeshows or seen it in action (without the shakiness with YouTube videos) a complete play of a level from beginning to end. These two thespians are acting in co-op campaign mode, where trust is the result of the actions as the equation! They learn quickly that they MUST work together if they want to finish the game–or even the level! Prisoners #10312and #10329 navigate block mayhem to collect gems that are the keys to their freedom!

Sometimes when people quickly play through the game, they forget to stop and look at the scenery. Maybe they shouldn’t at times when a missile-shooting robot is programmed to kill! Another idea: have fun on the upward fans! In this video they let you gracefully(ish) float up to the next blocks…which we call the “Bridge of Friendship!” Here, your bond is tested. Would your friend stand on the block that forms the bridge across and wait for you to walk across? Or would your friend let you fall in the spikes of betrayal??

We hope by watching this video, you and your friends will realize that you’ll need to work together to solve these puzzles or you’ll never get out alive

But what’s the fun in that? Don’t worry, you’re still allowed to mess around and grief your friend. Don’t worry if you get the impression that this level is short and sweet. Its an early act and rest assured, we’ll have hundreds of levels for you to endure…*ahem.*

Now carry on, watch our Prisoner Update/Level Playthrough NOW!
