Crossy Road Castle is an epic multiplayer platformer that takes place in a castle that's procedurally generated. This means that the platforms are different every time you play, so there's lots of replayability. Engaging in the multiplayer mode means that four players will be on-screen at once trying to get through the platforms.
It can be quite chaotic (and also hilarious)when you have four players playing, but playing with two is just as fun.
Multiplayer Modes: 2-4 player co-op.
