Editors’ Notes

Sent on an epic quest to save their father, two siblings must work together to complete a stunning and obstacle-ridden journey. As you make your way across vast landscapes, you’ll discover a world subtly tinged with sorrow and tenderness. Brothers’ unique control scheme puts you in command of both characters at once, and solving the puzzles requires coordination and consideration. While working out the problems is rewarding—and occasionally thought-provoking—it’s the unique way the gameplay and tone mesh together that’ll stick with you.

Pretty fun game, but needs improvements

I have really enjoyed this game so far, the storyline is entertaining and the fantasy aspect holds your attention. The graphics, although not great at times, really didn’t bother me, and overall the game was pretty enough compared to other games. It’s also just a really sweet tale about two brothers on a quest to save their father!

That being said, the controls are terrible, and the game is pretty buggy. I had to restart at a checkpoint several times because the characters straight up didn’t move when I wanted them to move. The joysticks are also badly placed and it doesn’t seem like there is any way to move them, only to make them bigger or smaller, or more opaque. I wish I could leave 5 stars, but for what I paid, it doesn’t quite reach the bar!

Great game,want more

I actually stopped in the middle to write this review because I was so disappointed. This game has been fantastic, engaging, and entertaining, UNTIL... the part where you have to swing the brothers by a rope around a cliff. There were NO instructions or references to anything like this in the tutorial at the start, or the gameplay thus far. I actually thought it was some kind of bug at first, until, in my frustration, I accidentally made one brother fall so he was dangling. I went to setting, and looked at how to use the controls. Nothing. I even googled a walkthrough because I was enjoying it so much until this point. It took me like 40 minutes and god knows how many tries to figure it out. You have to touch the screen (not the joystick,which moves all over the place anyway) and I figured it out by trial and error. In my frustration I have given 3 stars, but I will come back when I finish and give another rating. If this game keeps going like the first part, it is 5 stars all the way. But these iOS controls are NOT intuitive, and some minimal guidance would make the experience a million times better. Rant over
Now I’ve finished, and i changed to 5 stars because I cannot give 10 stars. Fantastic game despite small issues with controls
