Yesterday, we had our first live stream of Design with the Devs, where our level design team discussed three candidates for the co-op Furbottom’s Features. Today, we reveal the chosen one for solo and co-op! *Drum roll*
Solo Furbottom’s Feature: Welcome Home
Co-Op Furbottom’s Feature: Can’t Compare Love
You can find the detailed descriptions of each playlist when you go to the Furbottom’s Features section of the official BattleBlock Theater website.
And as always, the new solo and co-op Furbottom’s Features bring a new prisoner unlock when you complete either of the two playlists!
For the next two weeks, you’ll be able to get Cat Control, a mini-cat controlling the body of your prisoner. How freaky is that?
The weekend is at hand and that means it’s Achievement Challenge time! The rules are simple, the prizes are awesome, and the challenge is fun! Click Read More for all the details on the Weekend Achievement Challenge!
Monsters Love Candy!
So what exactly is Monsters Love Candy? Monsters Love Candy is an interactive chain-combo puzzle game for Windows 8. The story behind the game is that Professor Brown has discovered adorable monsters that evolve when they eat candy! Your mission is to match similar candy gems in chains and feed them to these Monsters. Once they are full they will evolve, and you can capture them and use their unique Boosts! Each Monster is different and come with different abilities. Some can magnetize the same colors together while others have score multipliers to help you reach the top of the scoreboard! Best of all, it’s free to download so you can start playing right NOW!
I’ve been hooked on Monsters Love Candy since it was released, and I have no regrets! If I had to describe the game in two words it would be addicting and adorable! I love how you can also send your friends challenges with a simple click. There are plenty of other fun features too like dressing up your Monsters in costumes, building up your Monster Scrapbook, and making your way to the top of the leaderboards!
Enough chatter, let’s play! Click HERE to download Monsters Love Candy!

I’ve mentioned before how I sometimes go through phases of wanting to get as many Achievements as I can in a short amount of time. Hearing that little pop sound on my console or on my Surface make me giddy inside. Usually, I’ll get frustrated when trying to get harder Achievements and eventually give up on them, but then I wondered…what Achievement took you the longest to get? Check out the Games page and let me know which game it was and what the name of the Achievement is below in the comments. I’ll try and go back through the game and get the Achievement myself (if I don’t already have it)! If you’re feeling extra generous, give me a few pointers on how you got it and any tips you might have.
I couldn’t resist how cute yet disturbing this photo is. I just had to share it with you all!
P.S. – If you’re wondering where the grass is, then here’s the answer directly from the Castle Crashers Facebook Page, “The grass isn’t in this picture since it was the original source movie clips that got popped in the level…This makes this pic EXTRA special.”
EXTRA… special. Now if only I had a perfect caption for it…

Hey Monsters Love Candy fans! Did you know there are different types of Monsters in the game? The four rarities are Common, Rare, Legendary, and the oh-so-magical Mythical! While some are easy to bump into, there are others cleverly hidden! Here’s a look at each level of rarity and a few Monsters you’ll find in each class:
Common Monsters are the most abundant and easiest to find of all the rarities. Although they may not have as many Boosts as other Monsters, they’re a perfect starting point and cost less to use. A few examples of Common Monsters are Max, Petal, Jojo, and Jumper.
One step up from Common, Rare Monsters are plentiful and quite easy to catch. They generally provide more Boost options than a Common Monster would, but can cost slightly more to use. A few Rare Monsters you’ll find hanging around are Skeeter, Bean Sprout, Moomoo, and Vivi.
Legendary Monsters aren’t spotted nearly as often as Common or Rare, and they need to be fed much more candy to evolve! While select Legendary Monsters may cost coins to use, others can cost Jewels due to their Boosts. Legendary Monsters you may run into are Duke, Lightning, Tessie, and Tiger Toes!
If you just so happen to encounter a Mythical Monster then you’re in luck! Mythical Monsters are the most powerful in all of Monsters Love Candy and provide the player with 4 powerful Boosts to use throughout their puzzle adventures. Since these Monsters are so strong they must devour a lot of candy first before they evolve! If you successfully evolve a Mythical Monster though then you better make room – You’ll want them to stick around!
Origins mode contains two collections of puzzle packs – Foundation and Passage. Haven’t unlocked every puzzle pack in Taptiles yet? You can earn stars in puzzle packs to complete both collections!
