Insane Mode is a game mode for Castle Crashers. Playing Insane Mode will increase the health of enemies as well as the amount of damage they will do. Players will not have any levels unlocked in Insane Mode when they first play; you will start at the Home Castle level just as in the regular game. Enemy's health in Insane Mode are multiplied by ten; enemies with 50 health normally will have 500, enemies with 350 will have 3500, etc.
How to get Insane Mode
Insane Mode is unlocked on any platform by successfully defeating the Final Battle by yourself. Once the level is completed, Insane Mode can be entered by walking onto a now opened space just below the Barbarian Boss level. Players who are already in Insane Mode will find the space back to the regular game in the same location, but on fire.
If one player completed all the previous levels and finally beats the Final Battle, he will unlock Insane Mode; but if he completed this last level while joined by other players who have skipped some levels, they won't unlock Insane Mode, at least until they finish their missing levels too.
If you complete all the previous levels with one character and on the last level another player joins using another one, only the character who completed all the levels in the game will have Insane Mode unlocked.
When you beat the game on this mode, your character will shows a golden skull instead of a white one on the selection screen.
On the PlayStation 3 and PC version, the Open-Faced Gray Knight, King, Necromancer, and Cultist are unlocked by playing through Insane Mode. The Xbox 360 version differs from this as it offers these characters as downloadable content.
