I can't recommend the game, nor would I disown it. For a platformer, it'd probably be okay. For a music game? Not so much. It's not very good at explaining any sort of mechanic in the game, nor what the music is actually there for. Guess it's just supposed to be background music?
I tried to play "single player" but I think the game defaults to online races and I've had my game auto search for another player. Unless I'm wrong about that, it's kind of silly to have no single player in a platformer.
Oh well. It was fun for about 10 minutes (kind of like Goat Simulator) before it became boring. As I said, I'm torn between not recommending and just "eh, if you like music games, it's okay".

Not a bad game, even enjoyable at times, assuming you will not try to get the achievements, most of which require impossible timing and precision. Nice music, vivid acid-induced visuals, and no death penalty make this a relaxing experience for the less hardcore players. For those that do want to "beat" the game, prepare to reload again, and again, and again, ad nauseam, until you can do the level in your sleep... or give up.

Rush Bros. is a challenging platformer.Some people compare it to Super Meat Boy except this one requires a lot more attention.The controls don't feel quite right and each level has its obstacles. You can choose the music yourself and compete with strangers or friends in the multiplayer.Sometimes it can get frustrating and if you're not patient it's gonna be difficult.Your hand-eye coordination is going to be put to test. The game was offered for free by Greenmangaming and if you missed the promotion,you better wait for it to go on sale.
Great platformer, great musicLidenburg | Sept. 18, 2014 | See all Lidenburg's reviews »
Great platformer, has good music and you can add music that you have yourself, sadly only mp3's work and not flac's or any other format. The game itself is great fun, I found that the game got even more fun when you try to get the achievements and beat your times on the maps and be as fast as possible, really competitive game and gets quite frustrating at times but it's all the more fun when you beat that time. The graphics are really appealing with nice and vivid colors and alive feeling backgrounds.
I would give this an even higher score if you could import songs that are in a format other than mp3, but the developers have said that they would have to re-write the whole music engine for that and I can see why they haven't done it.

This is a platformer which looks similar to Limbo and a number of other games of today, and also harkens back to a time when 2D sidescrolling platformers were very common. Its routes go back to the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog.
But thematically it is a bit different, and I can’t help but draw similarities, at least graphically on some level, especially the backgrounds, between it and something out of the Worms series of games.
You take the role of one of two brothers, and your goal is to make it through level upon level, getting past obstacles and seeing how fast you can make it through, with the least number of deaths. So it’s built for speedrunning, and you can unlock a number of achievements based on your performance during a level. You can also elect to accept challenges and compete against other players online and you have different game modes too with a few dozen levels to play around with.
Overall, this a is a challenging, and somewhat unusual, refreshing take on 2D sidescrolling platformers, and I can see why it has already developed a committed cult following. It’s cutesy, it’s fun, and some of the levels will give you a hard time, so it’s not too easy. This is probably made worse by the fact that the controls aren’t all that good.
And the soundtrack is good – and if the songs that come with the game aren’t to your taste you can import your own songs to listen to while playing as well.
