On its surface, Castle Crashers is reminiscent of classic arcade games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or X-Men. There are four heroes on-screen that do battle with a stream of foes in classic beat 'em up fashion. There are two buttons for attack, you can jump and string aerial combos together and double tapping the analog stick in one direction will cause you to sprint. Each color knight has its own special attack that can be done by holding down the right trigger to charge it up. IGN took charge with an orange guy that could spit out plumes of fire.
