What makes Two Brothers unique
Two Brothers takes a long hard look at death in video games... when the player is killed in combat or triggers a deadly trap, instead of being greeted a familiar GAMEOVER screen, the player finds himself in what we call the "Afterlife Hub".
This realm of the dead is a colorful and mysterious place where the player can explore, find clues, and interact with characters who have passed on in the games story... sometimes even bringing some of them back from the dead.
When the player wants to return to gameplay, they can jump from the edge of the heavens and get back in to the action and exploration!
This mechanic is vital to the gameplay, as sometimes interacting with the dead is just as important as interacting with the living... this feature often requires the player intentionally ending their session in a game over, just to cross over to the other side.
Good retro gamesilviapuiu | Jan. 27, 2014 | See all silviapuiu's reviews »
I recommend the game Two Brothers, because it is one of the most interesting games I have ever played from the category of retro games. The sound is very good and in accordance with the wanted atmosphere. At first, you feel like being in a black and white cartoon, but then you notice there is an entire story that evolves to color. The game offers a lot of places to explore, being interactive in a great extent, This game is a well done retro game, not a cheap version that only tries to copy the games from the 80's. I give it a 10, because it is an awesome retro game, that each passionate gamer should try.
