  • It’s not every day that we get to see a quality game transplanted from Steam to mobile. Brothers: A tale of Two Sons is an award winning title, available on all platforms and we played it on the LG V10. It was priced at $3 when we played it and it’s a 3D platformer with an unique concept.

    The idea is to use two thumbsticks, one for every brother you wield. It’s a very sad and depressing game, to be honest, but the artwork is fantastic and so is the atmosphere. Coming from 505 Games, the title follows the journey of two brothers to find a cure for their father. There are many puzzles and traps to face and even boss battles of sorts.

    You’ll even run into majestic scenery, like huge dying giants. The dialog is offered as gibberish talk, but that doesn’t matter, since the actions and emotions transcend words here. Graphics are excellent, maybe too good for most Android devices, making even our device overheat a bit. The bigger brother has strength and the smaller one speed as the main attribute, plus he get into tighter spaces.

    The two will help each other, boosting the other to higher places, drawing mad dogs to save the brethren and more. The controls are a bit tricky to master, especially since you have to think for two characters at a time. The left stick controls the older brother, who is stronger and can move levers, while the little brother is controlled with the right stick.

    There are instances when you see proof of brotherly love. Since their mother drowned, the little one has a fear of water, so the bigger one has to carry him on the back. You’ll meet a ton of villagers, help a troll with his love life and much more. Also, the music is fantastic, albeit sad, but luckily not generic. It’s a must play title and we give it a 9.7 out of 10.
