(Shopping isn't a huge part of the game... but I do touch somewhat on it. As there is one important item which you don't find, but can purchase in game.)

I have a review for this game in the geekmod at the moment. Plenty of shopping opportunities, especially with the city expansion.

We can't have this great man end his series with only 2 reviews. I quickly wrote another one. No shopping in this though.

Dodge this!

OK here's some extra reviews for you.

Battleblock Theater: A Review

There is shopping in this - you can buy 'friends' which allows you to customise your head. Totally obvious of course.

You can also trade balls of yarn with cat prison guards for super-cool special weapons.
