I'm just gonna say I love Castle Crashers, played it for so many hours on Xbox 360 and 35 hours on Steam. I'm saying this because its gonna sound like I hate The Behemoth and Castle Crashers.

 

So I'm going back playing The Behemoth games and just getting achievements as I go by, but this mode can nibble a banana it has to be one of the most frustrating achievements (The Final Countdown) to get. Not only can you not choose the map you are playing, which means you can't learn a certain pattern or simply get to know the map a little better, if you want to a map which is actually decent and not the smallest map in the world (looking at you stupid castle map) then you have to die....die...die to go through the rotation. Which takes forever due to the tutorial in the first 5 seconds displaying what you should do over and over again. It's ridiculous. 

 

Such a fast paced game mode comes to a grinding halt when you start over again with the tutorial showing its smug face as you do your best not to break anything, look at Super Meat boy, as soon as you die you instantly respawn to try again. I get that it was probably put there to make you calm/slow down after the intense speed at which the game was at but the music already does that and if people need a break they will just pause it or quit the game.

 

At 1:45, the soil hits the fan/ the fit hits the shan/ the ship hits the fan/ the excrement hits the air conditioning, where the speed ramps up all of a sudden and the techniques you used previously don't work. To save yourself you can duck underneath them when they are in the air but with speed that it ramps up to there is no point to this technique as you never have quick enough reaction times to pull it off. 

 

Tried it coop only hit the 2 minute mark, I actually got longer solo. The AI just gangs up on one person anyway like its solo so you might as well play solo (if you are getting the achievement). Coop also why does the timer mean death for the person who is still alive why not just a perma-death for the one who is dead. And I'm gonna stop at the potion randomness poppycock.

 

So any tips for beating it?

 

I can see it being a fun party type game mode but.....not for the achievement. 

 

TL,DR: uuuuuuggggggggghhhhhhhh

I went back to playing Castle Crashers after a very long time of not playing it and gave that mode a shot. I tried several times to get the 2:30 mark, but highest I can get is 1:30. Needless to say, trying to get that achievement is as hard as some of The Binding of Isaac Rebirth's challenges. Especially Challenge #7.
