20160105:
Having played and enjoyed both Alien Hominid (GCN) (2004) and Castle Crashers (PC) (2012), the chances that I would also enjoy BattleBlock Theater were high.

Controlling the character for the first time.
Gameplay: Merely finishing a level in BattleBlock Theater may be rather straightforward, but collecting all the gems, finding the level's hidden yarn ball, and finishing in a timely manner will require some additional playtime and clever use of the level's environment.

Thoughts:
Pros:
+ Short, fun gameplay

Bring the boat closer!
+ Funny narration (especially the intro)
+ Unlock characters and tools.

Neutral:
~ Essential controls are explained during gameplay, but I would recommend the player check out the full list of controls from the menu screen.

Customize your player character!
Unknown:
? Co-op

Recommendation:
BattleBlock Theater serves up an enjoyable platforming experience and I would definitely recommend it to gamers who enjoy platformers and anybody who enjoys any of The Behemoth's other games (e.g., Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers) should consider playing it.
